About Brian

Brian’s work in the golf industry began in 1989 at the age of 13 as a caddy in Southern New Jersey where he grew up in the game and progressed through a very successful junior career. Brian then attended the Professional Golf Management program at Coastal Carolina University where he also participated on the golf team. In 1998 he moved back to the greater Philadelphia area and started his career in the management of golf facilities and teaching golf. Since then, his travels and experience include four years in Myrtle Beach, SC and 17 years in Charlotte, NC before finally settling down with Rock Spring Golf Club in W. Orange, NJ in 2019.

Previous to his position as Head Golf Professional at Rock Spring GC, Brian was a General Manager with RGS Inc. in Charlotte, NC from 2004-2017 and had been the General Manager/ Head Golf Professional at Renaissance Park GC from 2008-2017. He is also a class “A” member of the PGA. Brian’s training in teaching has included extensive experience with two former PGA Section Teacher of the Year Award Winners. Brian is now a proponent of A.J. golf’s the “Truth About Golf” system and teaches the game from the physiological prospective. His methods are based on countless years of scientific studies that break the game down into the essential parts that can be manipulated. By taking advantage of the natural motions and capabilities of the human body, and harnessing the immense powers of hand eye coordination, Brian makes learning the game fun and easy. Brian has studied A.J. golf since 2007 under the watchful eye of A.J. disciple Allen Avakian. Allen has taught the Truth About Golf system for over 38 years.

Since 1998, Brian has given over 2,000 individual lessons and 500 clinics and group lessons. Brian’s calm demeanor, and unwavering patience, helps to make him an excellent fit for beginning golfers. Brian also specializes in Women’s instructional programs and clinics.
