As a graduate of the UNL-PGM Program in 2018, my career as a coach began in 2017 when I interned at Wilderness Ridge alongside renowned instructors such as Chris Thomson and Mike Schuchart, working junior camps and Get Golf Ready as well as some private lessons. I learned from the best and got my feet wet in golf instruction. In 2018 I spent my last internship at the Jim Ager golf and learning center, doing pretty much non-stop junior camps and Get Golf Ready classes, along with more private lessons. I again learned from some of the very best, Joe Canny, Tim Fox, and Wade Foreman at the Jim Ager. It was small beginnings compared to now at GOLFTEC, but Wilderness and Ager were very motivational for me to devote my entire golf career to coaching and teaching.
After Jim Ager, and when I graduated, I made the decision to commit to GOLFTEC, and it required me to go 800+ miles from home to Birmingham, Alabama. In the scorching heat of the south I had gained a great amount of experience (and perhaps a bit of an accent!) with the technology of GOLFTEC and the way that they teach, instructionally. It has been a journey and will always be, however, with my coaching ability and communication skill, as I believe that those things can only be learned and mastered with experience and learning not only from successes, but mistakes as well.
So now, at GOLFTEC- Omaha (after one year of being away from home, I was very blessed to brought onto the team at home in Omaha) with about 2 years at GOLFTEC, I really try to focus on the fundamentals of outcomes. Ball first contact, desired ball flight curve, desired starting direction. I often tell my students, "We use very advanced technology here at GOLFTEC, and our job is to take the most efficient, effective information and simplify it so that it is understandable for our students, and make it effective so that they can take these things and practice them and eventually take them to the course with a better swing." Or in a nutshell, "swing better, play better!"
Now here at GOLFTEC- Omaha I enjoy the company of my 5 fellow coaches: James Kinney, Jamie Stogdill, Brett Hahn, Cory Fletcher, and Jack Kaupa, with James Kinney the franchise owner and Jamie Stogdill the center manager. We like to think of our center as a family and we are always helping each other to be better coaches and fitters.
At this point I have given about 2000 lessons here at GOLFTEC, and 173 clubfittings, with about 45 currently active students.
