I have been playing golf since the age of 2 and competitively since the age of 5. It was a very successful junior golf career for me as I won the Missouri State Junior tournament at a young age as well as many others around the area. A basketball knee injury at the age of 18 somewhat slowed my full swing progress. I moved to play division 1 golf at SEMO for 4 years with mixed results and never fully felt like I got my legs back. Golf was my life and passion for living. I wanted to compete but wasn’t quite good enough to make it playing at the highest level. I had 2 years of nothing but playing golf and practicing too get better. My golf game didn't quite go to plan as I actually got worse. The reason was practicing the wrong things with the wrong feedback. My struggles as a playing professional led me to a much better and more clear picture of how one must use their time to improve at the game of golf. Teaching and learning the craft of coaching golf became my new passion. I was driven to find a way to train that anyone could use to get better but at the same time have minimal risk for injury. I now employ multiple fronts of training for my students to learn movement optimizing and development. MODgolf was born! The latest and greatest in golf training.

I enjoy seeing a students eyes light up when they finally get that feeling of a well stuck golf shot! Always makes me smile and the student gets a sense of accomplishment from the work we have been doing together.
I have had golf lessons at Leadbetter, Golftec and various Pro's, however, this was the best lesson ever with immediate visual results.
Mostly when working with a new student I will ask questions to get a feel for the level of ability and overall amount of experience the student has with golf, whether it be competitive or just recreational and to what degree. Then trying to determine what the student might be looking to get out of the lessons or possible goals that we might set together to achieve. These questions help to guide not only me as the instructor but also help to make it clear to the student and create a sense of awareness of what needs to improve for an overall greater enjoyment from the game of golf.
In relation to the full golf swing:
First, we will teach you how to get set up properly. Then we stack on information about why we want to do those specific things and why they are important. If you don’t understand why you would do something, then the attention you pay to it will diminish inevitably. Next, isolating the muscle and motion is key, as your body learns each part of the golf swing with specific drills that are used to take distractions away such as the ball or the golf club. You will progress in the drills starting easy then making it harder and thus making it more integrated into what we do when hitting the golf ball. Stacking on drills and information are the building blocks toward producing an efficient and effortless golf swing. Sign up today and make this the year you get your handicap down to where you always thought it could be.
I have played golf since the age of 2 and competitively since the age of 5. I was All State in High School and was awarded a scholarship to play golf at Southeast Missouri State University, where I played for 4 years with mixed success. I graduated and moved out to Phoenix, AZ where I started playing professionally but also worked for John Jacobs Golf School and Golf Digest Schools with some of the best golf instructors in the world. I was teaching and giving lessons after a couple of years until I decided to play professionally full time in 2005 on the US Profesional Golf Tour or USPGT. I again had mixed success and the tour only lasted for a few years. I started working at BlackHorse Golf Club after that and have been giving lessons on a full time basis since August of 2007.
