About this pro

 I'm a former Class A PGA Professional currently living in the Chattanooga area. I grew up in West Palm Beach, FL and have lived all over the world until I relocated to Chattanooga in 2013. I am a graduate of the PGA Golf Management program at Campbell University in Buies Creek, NC. I've been a professional golfer for 12 years now as well. I've been fortunate to work with and under many great fellow professionals in Florida and Colorado, in high end private clubs and resorts. Currently, I'm looking to mentor and give back in however I'm able to do so. I'm familiar with and educated in multiple swing philosophies, and use that to help me address students' needs in their golf swing. Contrary to most in the industry, I typically prefer to meet before any instruction or payment, because I believe that knowing your goals or reasons for learning the game are incredibly important and essential to form a solid game plan going forward.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I do things actually quite different than most golf instructors, in that my first session is more of a consultation, or a sit down/phone Q&A. I do this to get to know the student, talk about their game, what they want to improve, what their goals are going forward. This allows me to have a more personal connection, as well as be able to create a plan that will help us reach the desired goal. 

After that initial discussion, I will meet the student on the range, at the course, or wherever is mutually agreed upon and we will begin. I will let them warm up, I'll watch, then I take some photos and videos (usually slow motion) to help me get a better visual of what all is happening in their golf swing. 

After each lesson, I go home and review the notes, footage, photos, and compose an email to the student with a recap, what I've found in the swing, and drills/tips to practice before the next lesson.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I'm a former Class A PGA Professional. I've been trained on multiple swing theories and philosophies, and use that to address students' needs. I've also worked under and learned from great golf instructors like David Orr and Mike McGetrick

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I do not have a "standard" pricing system at this time. It usually depends on the student and their individual needs

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching juniors on my first internship. As I progressed in the PGA Golf Management program at Campbell, I was able to teach juniors, women, and even students while there and on my other internships in FL and CO. After graduation and when I returned home working at a private club was where I was fully immersed in all levels of instruction. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with kids, women, men, of all levels from beginner to professional. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Personality is huge. Find someone who gels with you and how you want to do things. Everyone learns in different ways and has different personalities, and it's the same with golf instruction. It's important to try several and see if any of them seem to match up better than others with your own individual learning style and personality. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

It's ultimately about the end goal. The student should spend ample time thinking about their games and have a firm understanding of what they want to accomplish, and understand that it may take time, no matter who they decide to learn from.
