Richard is a graduate of Furman University and a native South Carolinian. He began his professional golf career in 2007. He has been a part of the professional staff at Prince William Golf Club in Nokesville, VA; Holly Tree Country Club in Simpsonville, SC; Seabrook Island Club locally on John’s Island, SC and most recently as the Golf Professional at Dick’s Sporting Goods in Summerville, SC.
Richard is no stranger to Westcott. His son John Luke Taylor, age 9, played for Wescott during the 2014 Junior Interclub season.
He has a great deal of teaching experience with golfers from all walks of life. Richard’s hands-on approach has proven to be successful with students from the beginning novice to the wily veteran. His current and former students include an Asian Tour player, several mini-tour players, and those who have gone on to be PGA members or apprentices.
He and his wife Kelli, enjoy destination cruising, reading, and riding around town in their Camaro with the top down!
Without question, he is a great addition to our already vibrant teaching program.
