About this pro

I am a former mini tour golf professional now a teaching professional.  I have been giving lessons and clinics for over 25 years, and was a standout jr golfer taught by some of the greatest teachers in the game such as David Leadbetter, Mitchel Spearman and Phil Ritson.  I have taken all the best practices and tips from these greats and many others, not just in my game; but sharing with others and watching them grow.

Of course the greatest thing that I have learned is that it takes dedication and practice, practice, practice.  I like my students to be as motivated as me and take what they learn and apply it in their practice.  The only way to get better is to practice the right things over and over till they become natural.  I can teach you those right things and help you apply them to your own game and natural swing.

I like to keep things fun and challenging, and I understand that learning new things are awkward; so I have the patience to get my students through and hope they do to.  

I am interested in teaching people with a passion for the game and the desire and dedication to get better.  If you are this person, then I am the teacher for you.

I love helping people imrove their golf game making it more enjoyable and fun.  My favorite part about teaching is watching people get better through the technics I have learned and have been taught myself.
