Through his work experiences, Donald has had the privilege to work at some of the highest rated Private Golf Clubs in the country, especially Ridgewood Country Club (host of the Barclays), and the West Point Golf Club, which is home to the United States Military Academy in Upstate New York.
Donald is a Faldo certified instructor, being taught by Sir Nick himself. His favorite book that got him interested in teaching was Harvey Penick’s Little Red Book, and his mentor as an instructor is Russell Helwig, PGA from Essex Fells Country Club in New Jersey.
