Welcome To My Website!

Learning the game of golf can sometimes be confusing and frustrating. I find it more enjoyable if you view it as a journey, not a destination.

The relationship between a student and an instructor is similar to that of a tourist and a tour guide. First, I need to find out where a student wants to go in order to help them get there. I develop a road map for their journey after I learn about their goals, dreams and abilities.

Recent studies have shown the only group of golfers who exhibit consistent improvement in their game are those working with a qualified instructor. I am committed to exceeding your expectations and making your journey through the game of golf an enjoyable one.
 
In my 47 years as a golf professional, I have become an expert in the full swing and an expert in the short game.  I have been chosen PGA Teacher of the Year 17 times and am one of GOLF Magazines Top 100 Teachers.

I teach at DragonRidge CC in Henderson, Nevada.  I use a state of the art, climate controlled, teaching bay with both a video system and launch monitor.
