PGA International logoCertified by the United States Golf Teachers Federation and member of the International PGA, I have been playing and teaching golf for more than 40 years.  I enjoy teaching the basic fundamentals using proven methods that have lasted the test of time like those illustrated by Ben Hogan in his book Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf.

I believe … everyone is different!  Every individual player is different, and has a unique swing built around their own physical design – short, tall, heavy, thin or some combination.  Whether working with an individual, or giving group lessons, I make note of each persons uniqueness and their strengths and weaknesses.  My intent is to establish a player development plan and coach each individual. 


Take your golf skills to the next level with …
