Chad is a dedicated Class A member of the PGA of America and grew up in western New York, near Rochester. Starting golf at age 4, he began playing competitively at age 6. In 7th grade, he made the Varsity Golf team and qualified to play match competition. His talent and passion led him to eagerly pursue a career in golf. Chad graduated from Campbell University with a major in PGA Golf Management and a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration. At Campbell University, Chad worked with decorated PGA instructor David Orr, who has worked with many touring Professionals. While at Campbell, he also became a certified instructor of The Golf Machine. This method helped him to understand the philosophy of teaching that there is not just one way to swing a golf club or play great golf. There are also several aspects besides full swing to improve any players scores. This is also the philosophy that Chad tries to implore in all of his students to be more confident players and better enjoy the game.
