About Christopher

Chris grew up playing golf and competing in New Hampshire where he excelled on a local, regional and national level. Chris raised his game to compete collegiately at Penn State University, an NCAA Division I program. The highlight of Chris's amateur career was winning the 2016 New Hampshire Amateur Championship at Laconia Country Club. Later, Chris turned professional and competed with success across New England before centering his focus on golf instruction beginning in 2020 with the onset of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Chris's teaching philosophy is to work within the physical capabilities of each student and to keep the instruction as simple as possible. He believes that mastering elements of the setup such as grip, alignment, and ball position are paramount to making a successful golf swing. Chris's overall goal is to ensure all students are comfortable, and understand the cause and effect relationships unique to their own swing. He also has a special interest in coaching short game and putting.

When not on the lesson tee, Chris actively works on his own game and plays a fair amount of professional golf tournaments at the section and State Open level. He also enjoys spending time with his wife and dog at home, and participating in other outdoor activities such as hiking, skiing and snowmobiling during the off-season.
