About Michael

Originally from Kansas City, Missouri, Michael has been teaching golf for 10 years and has been playing the game for 30. He has played at every level, from Junior golf all the way to Professional. With two professional wins and multiple top 5 finishes, Michael has extensive playing experience with some of the top players in the world such as Brian Davis, Chris Couch and Chase Koepka. He has worked with top Instructors such as Rick McCord, who was a PGA of America top 50 instructor, Greg Harrison, who has worked with tour players such as Bryson DeChambeau, Brendon Todd, and Lexi Thompson. Michael has also spent a lot of personal time learning directly from world-renowned short game specialist James Ridyard who works with top players such as Justin Rose and Franseco Molinari. Michael goes beyond teaching the basics of the golf swing and educates his students on the biomechanics. He also lends his expertise in course management with systems designed by Scott Fawcett such as Decade Golf and Aimpoint. Focusing greatly on the mental side of golf, he helps his students achieve lower scores with greater playing satisfaction. “If you can’t learn with the way I teach, then I will teach you the way you learn”
