About Steve

Born in Wyoming, but raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I was started in golf from a very young age by my parents. I competed in local and national events at the junior and high school level before moving on to play for the Lobos at the University of New Mexico at the college level.

While in college I was fortunate enough to earn some awards including a Division 1 All-America team selection in 2009 as well as Academic All-America and Mountain West Conference Player of the year.

After college I turned pro and pursued my dream of playing on the PGA tour. I competed across the planet on various "mini-tours" including four years on the PGA Tour Canada (2010-2013) and two seasons on the Tour (2014-2015).

After hanging up my spurs on the full time competitive circuit in 2016, I transitioned to the coaching and golf operations side of the game. I am currently the Head Professional at Temecula Creek Golf Club, and I enjoy teaching students of all ages and backgrounds with the hope of passing along some of the joy and great opportunities this game has provided me.
