About this pro

Since childhood, I had a distinct passion for the game of golf. Growing up, I would go to the course by my house in the morning, and have to shine car lights on the putting green at night before I left. I took many private lessons, played competitively, and continued to live my dream. this year, I decided to leave the corporate world and use my talents to teach private lessons, host clinics, and take on a variety of clients. My goal is to help others love the game as much as I do, while sharpening their skills to play at the top of their game. 

I get to live out my passion, and help others gain the same enthusiasm. Golf is the ultimate game for bonding, business, relaxation, and skills tests. I love helping others achieve goals they didn't know were possible.

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

Evaluating skill level, and goals of the new student. I typically ask a few questions to understand what the student wants to gain, and what they want to achieve. The first lesson is mostly observation, and with the students permission I video their swing,  break it down, and we begin our journey into perfecting their golf game. 

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

Full scholarship to play collegiate golf, played several Pro AMs and taught many private lessons. 

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

Individual private lessons are $50 for one hour. For long term clients, I usually offer a 6 lesson package at $50 off. 

How did you get started teaching?

My wife and I decided that we wanted to live a life of happiness, freedom, and Pershing our passions. After many years in management and the corporate world, I decided to take a leap of faith and start teaching private lessons full time. It has become the greatest experience of my life. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with children as young as 5 who never held a club, and I have worked with seniors in their 70s who are looking for a tune up, to add distance, or just can't twist the way they use to. I have worked with males, and females, and hosted kids clinics every summer. 

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

Be prepared to commit and be patient. What feels natural to you, may not be best for you. We may have to tweak your grip, stance, swing, etc. it may feel uncomfortable, and results may not be immediate; but I have yet to have a client who didn't end our sessions completely satisfied. 

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

"What goals do I have for myself?"

"what are my strengths?"

"what are my opportunities?"

"what do I want to accomplish once lessons are complete?"
