About this pro

Keeping it simple. Build a repeating swing, one that you can take to the course with confidence! I've taught 1000's of students in the last 25 years!

 Golf has been my passion since I can remember. I started a golf program in Rowell, NM in 1996 which eventually morphed into The First Tee in 2006. I earned my PGA card while asst pro in San Angelo, I was also the Jr High Coach in San Angelo, head golf pro at Santa Fe, head golf pro at Desert Pines in Fort Stockon, Tx. Teaching was the best part of my job!

    As someone who’s wanted to start golf lessons for years, I finally decided to just do it. So happy I found Robert to teach me! He has so much knowledge to share, and he is very patient and encouraging as an instructor. The confidence I gained after just the first lesson was all I needed to commit to more. Best decision ever!

    I consider him an incredible mentor! He’s a man with great values and character. He taught me everything I know about golf and life. Highly recommend!


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

My first question is what do they want? Do they want to play occasionally, once a month, once a week, or is there one person you just want to beat? 

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

USGTF certified

PGA of America card 

Executive Director The First Tee of the Pecos Vally

Golfsmith clubmaking school

San Angelo Jr High golf coach

 Instructor for America's Favorite Golf School

Head Golf Pro Santa Fe Golf course in San Angelo

 Head Golf Pro Dessert Pines in Fort Stockton

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

Generally $45 per lesson. $200 for 5 lessons paid after the first one. Group lessons are available also.

How did you get started teaching?

I ran a golf program in Roswell, NM for 8 years which eventually morphed into the First Tee in 2006. 

What types of students have you worked with?

8 to 80, beginner to competitive. I took a young girl 16, from absolute beginner to winning her first Jr PGA 3 months after starting, she was very athletic, a barrel racer.

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

It's always going to be tough implementing new mechanics and feel. Take the notes the instructor gives you and trust that if you honestly give it your best you will improve.

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

Again what is it you want to achieve. Casual play or competitive? How much time do you want to invest? Are the clubs you have the right ones for you?
