My golf story goes like this:I once met a gal, who said “how would you like to go golfing?” Well now she’s my wife and all I do is Teach Golf!

I have fun telling that story whenever asked about my golf credentials. I started golfing in ’95 and immediately appreciated the challenge and the joy of making a great shot. From my humble beginnings of shooting over 130 for a round of golf , I now enjoy a 3 handicap. When it comes to golf I got emersed in how to make the golf swing work, and then I found out it was a lot more than just that. I have secured a USGTF, United States Golf Federation, Certified Teaching Professional credentials. I embarked on my second college degree, and learned everything to run a golf course operation from soup to nuts, to become a member of the PGA of America as a Class A Pro. Since that day, I have never stopped learning, whether it be inside the ropes at Nationwide, PGA and Schwab cup events with the touring pros, or with the latest green reading technology like AimPoint or with long drive champions side by side. That brings me to the New Rules of Golf Instruction. I had already combined Swing mechanics, Game / Shot management and Mental / Emotional controls into my teaching when I found out about the good things Charlie King was doing at Reynolds Plantation. That caught my eye and now I am becoming a Certified New Rules Golf Coach working with Charlie to change the way people learn golf skills to thereby lower their scores and have fun doing it. Our philosophies mirror each other, to bring each student a more reliable, consistent complete game that they can have fun playing, On the Course, Where It Matters!
