About this pro

As a Golf Coach, I am passionate about helping you achieve your golf game goals. I have taught and coached golf for over 30 years at Cleveland State University, Baldwin Wallace College, Padua H.S, St. Joseph Academy, Fairview H.S. And the Southwest Junior Golf Tour. Also , I am a certified Club Fitter and Golf Service Expert at Dick,s Sporting Goods.

It is wonderful to see golfers get to the next level in their golf game. Whether it is sinking a long putt, chipping in for a birdie or hitting a drive right down the middle of the fairway, it is great to experiece that sensation. Golf is a game for a lifetime, so it is important that you enjoy the journey.

    Very patient and helpful

  • Debby Barath

    Being new to the game of golf, it was very important that the trainer be patient and have an easy going manner. Joe succeeded on both counts. He was very thorough about getting my swing and stance just right. I would highly recommend Joe to anyone looking for someone to help them with their golf game.

    Joe did an excellent job on correcting issues with my swing. His instructions were easy to understand and follow. I am pretty much a beginner at this game and Joe's easy going manner helped take away the frustration of trying the learn something new.

    I was fortunate to be paired with Joe B on the golf course about 5 years ago. I remember hitting a fat shot from about 90 yds. Joe B gave me a couple of pointers. After that I went from rarely shooting in the 80's to routinely shooting in the 80's. Now I make certain to get at least one lesson a year. What I like about the lessons are that everything is explained in a simple manner. The lessons aren't designed to change your swing but to work with your existing swing. There some concepts taught that my brain can understand but I couldn't easily transferred it to my swing. You're then given practice routines to help apply the concept to your swing. I've referred a few people also.
