Teaching since:
September 1988

I have been teaching golf since 1988 where I began my career at Torrey Pines Golf Course. I spent over 17 years at Torrey Pines and was the lead instructor for the Torrey Pines Golf Schools. I also perfected my craft while working at PGA West in La Quinta California.
I enjoy teaching students of all ages, men & women, beginner through PGA Tour levels. My highest achievements have come from developing young eager players from Middle School all the way to obtaining scholarships to college.
I have been a PGA Class "A" Member since 1998 and have learned from some of the best instructors in the nation. I teach strictly from a physics perspective while still putting the emphasis on fun.
