WELCOME! It is with great pleasure and passion that I want to help you enjoy the game of golf while having fun. Golf is a game that will challenge, reward and humble you which is why it is an amazing game, but without good instruction it can be discouraging.

At the age of 19 I fully focused my attention to golf and it changed my life. Realizing early that to be a successful golf instructor you need to learn from the best, I started down a road that has been unbelievable.

Throughout the years I have attended educational seminars taught by top golf professionals along with working under Eric Alpenfels at the Pinehurst Resort, Dana Rader and Julie Cole at the Dana Rader Golf School and being mentored by Ed Ibarguen at Duke University Golf Club. Recently, I have enjoyed spending time with and learning from Michael Hebron who was just inducted into the PGA Golf Hall of Fame. This past winter I enjoyed an incredible visit with Fred Shoemaker, Extraordinary Golf, Pia Nilsson, Vision54, and Bryan Hepler, Tathata Golf, in Scottsdale, Arizona. What an amazing trip...thank you!

These experiences have expanded my knowledge of the golf swing and the ability to communicate this knowledge in simple terms. Also, through the PGA of America I have become a PGA Certified Professional in Instruction and had my Master Professional Material approved. I realized early that you never stop learning and I continue to take advantage of educational opportunities.

I appreciate you taking the time to look at this site and look forward to the opportunity of helping you with your golf game. It will be a FUN journey!
