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 46 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.

Masters: The Biggest Disasters At The 12th Hole

30 Mar 2017 16:03:10 Z

Augusta National's 12th hole is one of the most scenic spots in all of golf. But the pretty par 3, dubbed "Golden Bell," is also one of the most dangerous holes in the game despite only playing 155 yards on the scorecard. In the final round of the 2016 Masters, Jordan Spieth saw his chances of winning a second consecutive green jacket disappear there with a quadruple bogey. But Spieth wasn't the first -- and he certainly won't be the last -- to fall victim to a disastrous Sunday score on No. 12. Here's a look back at some of the other memorable meltdowns that have taken place there.
