My teaching philosophy centers on the fundamentals of the golf swing; emphasizing how to hold the club, posture and balance.
As an instructor my goal is to make the game more fun for golfers at every level and help lower everyone's score on the course.
Golf is an art form, not a science. I believe in applying the principles of the swing to fit each person’s ability, strengths, and weaknesses.
I know I have succeeded when a student leaves a lesson with a better understanding of how to strike the ball in the center of the club and
make it fly towards the target.”

All my programs are designed to offer a welcome setting to build friendships and enjoy the business advantages of the golf lifestyle. My
goal is to help you lower your score on the course by providing the knowledge that will make the game more fun. By reducing the swing
to its simplest terms and then applying that understanding to become a more successful golfer, regardless of your level.
