As with most young men who become involved in golf, I was introduced to the game by my father. Although a novice player, my father's passion for the game and determination to become better truly inspired me. I chose a career path outside of golf, yet later returned to the game I always loved.
I became a PGA Member in 2007, after completing the PGA-PGM program in 17 short months. I immediately became involved at both the Section and Chapter Levels, volunteering my time and efforts for the Northern Ohio Section and Toledo Chapter PGA. I have served on the board of directors for both the Section and the Chapter and will have served my Presidency in full at the end of the 2012 season for the Toledo Chapter PGA.
As an Apprentice, I worked for 3 different PGA Professionals who I respect and admire for their dedication to me as well as the business and game of golf. I have been mentored well and strive everyday to be the best I can be.
I strive to make the game enjoybale for all of the people I come into contact with on a daily basis. from teaching to playing the game, I will always give 100% back to the game and to those who invest their time with me.
Now in my 5th year as the Head Golf Professional at Detwiler Park by Arthur Hills in Toledo, Ohio, I am proud of the growth that the facility has seen. I thank each and every customer who walks through our door on a daily basis for their support.
Teaching, playing and running a smooth, 1st Class operation is my ultimate goal and I hope that our customers feel that I can live up to that challenge.
