Director of Instruction

Photo #34I was born and raised in the small Midwestern town of Galesburg Illinois, and played professional golf on the PGA and Tours for nearly 20 years.  Between both Tours, I had 2 wins on the Tour, made 179 cuts with 3 runner-ups, 26 top 10’s, and 70 top 25 finishes.  Competing against the best players in the world has now provided me the unique opportunity of passing on my experiences and knowledge to golfers of all ages and abilities.  My mission is to provide all my students with a positive learning experience that helps them achieve their golf goals while exceeding their expectations.  Whether you are a beginner or an aspiring tour player, I hope you will give me the opportunity to help you lower your scores and make this wonderful game even more enjoyable.
