About Clayton

Born and raised in Texas, I attended Sam Houston State University, where I studied Business Administration and Professional Golf Management. After three PGA internships in Texas, Missouri, and Virginia at some of the top clubs in the nation, I knew golf instruction was my passion. One of my mentors, Leighann Albaugh, told me about how much I could learn from Kevin Weeks at Cog Hill, so I made it my goal to serve my last internship there. I'm now in my fifth year at Cog Hill, and I work with Kevin to lead the PGA Junior League team and teach in one of the strongest junior golf programs in the United States.

Two of my proudest achievements? Four of our most recent PGA Junior League teams have won the regional championship and qualified to play in the national tournament. And in the past four years, I have be named by my peers as one of Golf Digests Best Teachers in Illinois.
