About Ian

I have been teaching junior golf for over 25 years. Currently six of my students are playing college golf on scholarships. I also work with adults to help them enjoy the game by keeping it simple. Through the Titleist Performance Institute, I am trained as a Level 2 Golf Instructor and a Level 2 Junior Instructor. The short game is my specialty. The psychology of putting and understanding green reading to be specific.
