About Chad

My main goal is to help you properly interpret the golf lessons that you have taken in the past or understand the current explosion of information that you are encountering now. My philosophy comes from playing college golf, years of playing sports, and over 19 years of teaching golf at every level(Beginner-Playing Professional). Stop chasing golf’s latest fads, it is time to dig in. Always pursuing the ‘Getting Better Every Day’ belief in self-improvement, I achieved PGA of America Certification in teaching '19, which reflects the commitment I have to using current technology and research to make your game simple. Your improvement starts Now.

As a college tennis player, I learned how to play, practice, and train at an elite athletic level. I've only been playing for five years and I was a 6.3 when we started. And in 18 months, I've gotten down to a 1.3.

Dr. Mike Fitzgerald


After a physical screen, we were able to map out a plan that was tailored for me and my body type. Lacking flexibility, we were able hone in on the best power sources for me.

Matt Norbuta


I do not know of any other young teacher who has such a strong drive and desire to improve as much as Chad.

Top 100 Golf Instructor, Joe Plecker


Chad observes, suggests, encourages and demonstrates in a manner that no other teaching pro has done over the many years I have played and enjoyed golf.
