About Bob

I have been a PGA member since 1995. My teaching methods recognize all players as individuals and I adapt my lessons to meet the skills/abilities/needs of each student. I have training in adaptive golf through PGA HOPE, so I am able to adjust what I teach based on a persons physical abilities.

I have been teaching veterans through the PGA Hope program since 2012. The program is run on the grounds of the VA Medical Center in Battle Creek, Michigan. 6 week sessions are held starting in April and September each year.
