About Brad

Brad is a Life Member of the PGA with 34 years of teaching. He currently is the HOPE Lead Instructor for Northwest Ohio, Wauseon High School Boys Golf Coach, and teaches private lessons and clinics at Ironwood Golf Course in Wauseon, OH.

In Brad’s younger days he was one of the longest hitters in the country. In 1975, at the age of 17, he scored Golf Digest’s longest hole-in-one of the year, 360 yards. He still plays a pretty good game, even shooting his age in 2023 with a 65.

Brad is a U.S.A.F. veteran, and inventor of the patent pending 3 Point Putter!!! The world's first double-gripped standard to mid-length putter. Featuring the innovative milled-face, 318 stainless steel even flow putter head with the Rocking Indicated Aim Line System. Combining the enhanced distance control provided by the similar-feel-portion double-grip putter grip and the innovative canted aim line system for rocked heel and toe putting, putts are not only easier to make but 3 putts may be nearly eliminated. The 3 Point Putter!!! conforms to the rules of golf. Website https//:

Even though he is semi-retired, Brad is active in the game of golf, both playing and teaching. His teaching philosophy is that all golfers are different. Proper diagnosis and proper prescription are the basic tenets of improvement. This is where 34 years of experience pays off.

"I am sorry for interrupting, but I have to say something. I learned more in 3 half-hour sessions with Brad than I learned in 30 years of playing golf. I want to thank him for sharing his knowledge of the game." During 4th session.

"No instructor, and I had been to many, was ever able to teach me how to hit a draw with my driver. After one lesson with Brad I was not only hitting a draw with my driver, I also had my best round of the year"

"I consider the cost of the junior golf clinic that I enrolled my grandson into, that was taught by Brad, to be the best investment I ever made."
