I have an absolute love of learning and an interest in improving performance and overall fun on the golf course for my students. I am an avid learner, especially in the fields of biomechanics, mindset, and strategic efficiency. I am on a personal quest to become the best teacher/coach I can be. I have attained the following certifications in: Dana Dahlquist Network, BioSwing Dynamics(Mike Adams and EA Tischler), TPI(Titleist Performance Institute) Level 2, and Forces and Motions by Sasho Mackenzie and Dr. Phil Cheetham. I have also worked with short game expert, James Ridyard and continue to expand my knowledge of short game scoring. I am a Scott Cowx Certified Network Instructor. Most recently involved in The Catalyst School designed by popular Sports Psychologist Dr. Bhrett McCabe for coaches of all disciplines. I’m continually seeking knowledge from many of the world’s best golf teacher/coaches as use their information for continual refinement of my own philosophy and methodologies. Some of my closest mentors include Duke’s own Top 100 Teacher, PGA Master Professional and Director of Golf and PGA Master Professional, Ed Ibarguen; Sports Psychologist; Dr. Bhrett McCabe; PGA Head Professional Phil Leddy; as well as another Top 100 Instructor, Joe Plecker I find that my students are fed up with tips from friends or family, articles from golf magazines, many lessons from indoor simulators, or endless “gems” on YouTube or Instagram. My main goal is to help you properly interpret the golf lessons that you have taken in the past or the current explosion of information that you are encountering now. My philosophy comes from years of playing sports and over 17 years of teaching golf at a high level. I believe that each golfer can channel their inner athlete and their former experiences to enjoy and improve their game. Improvement takes a plan and a process and must be tailored to your availability and your interest level. Stop chasing golf’s latest fads, it is time to dig in. Dr. Mark Bull said, “In order to be a better coach, you must be a better student.” I truly enjoy playing golf and I am always working to improve my own game. Always pursuing the ‘Getting Better Every Day’ belief in self-improvement, I achieve PGA of America Certification in teaching. I have recently boosted my arsenal of instruction tools with the purchase of FLIGHTSCOPE Xi Tour Radar and Hackmotion to gauge 3D Wrist Data. Why guess when you can measure?
