“Learning the game of golf should be enjoyable and that is the way I teach it. When working with beginners I like to start at the hole and work back. When working with the intermediate and advance golfers we will work on taking their game to the next level. I not only want my students to work on the range, but also practice on the golf course. The course is where you play the game and it is where you should be the most comfortable.”

“I like to focus my teaching style on the fundamentals of the swing and keeping things as simple as possible. I like to take my time and watch my students hit many shots before offering any advice. This allows me to notice patterns and tendencies, so I can offer the most effective instruction. I tend to work well with intermediate and advanced players and taking them to a competitive level.”
