Golf Is A Game For A Lifetime -It's NEVER
To Early To Learn, Or To Late To Improve.
Isn't It About Time You Honed Your Skills,
To Maximize Your Fun On The Golf Course?
My Coaching Philosophy
My goal as an instructor is to help you gain a solid understanding of how to get the best results from your golf swing, and to teach you how to “self-correct” when things go wrong out on the golf course. I’m a big believer that there is no “one perfect swing” for everyone. Each of us has a unique style, and differing physical abilities - I’ll help you get the most out of yours.
Whether you’re a single digit handicapper, someone looking to break 100, or you're just trying not to embarrass yourself in front of Friends or business clients, my voice-over video lessons will help you gain a clear understanding of the proper fundamentals needed for a consistent, repeatable golf swing.
Since shooting a good score encompasses a variety of different skills, I like to look at all of the key areas of my students game; tee shots, approach shots to the green, short-game up & downs, bunker play, putting, as well as the mental approach they take into to each of these shots.
Golf is an important part of my life, and I look forward to sharing my two decades of Professional Golf Coaching experience with you, to help improve and enjoy this GREAT game!
I've been a part of the Marin County/North Bay golf industry for 20 years, having spent time as an Assistant Golf Professional at San Geronimo Golf Course from late 1999 to early 2004, then moving to StoneTree Golf Club in Novato from late 2004 to mid 2008. In May of 2008, I joined the PGA of America. Later that year, in November 2008 I joined the staff at McInnis Park Golf Academy in San Rafael, CA, as one of the Golf Coaches/Teaching Professionals.
In December of 2017, My Fabulous Wife & I decided to make the move out of Marin, to our "Happy Place" on the Mendocino Coast, so I said goodbye to my Friends and students at McInnis Park. After "retiring" for the past 18 months, I am really excited to be joining the Team at Little River Inn Golf Course!
I thoroughly enjoy incorporating my love for the game of golf into my teaching style, and believe that a good coach/instructor should work together with his/her students to identify the unique keys, which will allow them to learn most effectively. I’m not a believer in the "one style fits all" golf instruction philosophy. My job is to adapt to each students style of learning, and then find a way to get the message across in a way that works best for them.
During lessons, I use a high-speed video camera which records your golf swings at an amazing 3,000 frames per second. Once back at home in my office, video footage from your lesson is loaded into the V1 Pro - Video Analysis Software program (Golf Digest Editors’ Choice Award for best Golf Swing analyzer).
I then edit and produce your custom, voice-over lesson video, which is emailed and/or texted directly to you. I also create an on-line locker for each student, so that all of your lesson videos can be easily accessed and viewed, at any time - as many times as you'd like. Also, all lesson videos are stored "in the cloud," thus taking up no space on your computers hard drive or cell phone memory.
Utilizing this type of advanced, visual technology, allows my students to not only see their swings (often times side-by-side with PGA & LPGA Tour Professionals), but to also gain a greater understanding of what it is they need to focus on, as they practice.
My trusted, simple philosophy of "Less is More," has helped my students play better golf, and increased their enjoyment level, both while practicing at the range, and out on the course. Come experience it for yourself!
