About David

My career in teaching the game of golf has traveled across the country. My stops include a teaching professional role at The King Kamehameha GC (Maui, HI), Northmoor CC (IL), The Bridge (Harlem, NYC), and Golf in Schools (Chicago, IL). These places are where I developed a skill and love for teaching. Most recently, I was the Head Golf Professional at Kahili GC on Maui before joining Golfinity in 2018. Since arriving in Austin, I have executed the roles of Director Coach, Director of Instruction, and General Manager. My philosophy is simple, "Swing the club in the direction of the target and the ball will go there". I pair this simple concept with state of the art technology including Trackman, Foresight, Ukeekor, GEARS, V1, and Swing Catalyst, Virtual Green, and RoboGolfPro to improve your skills in a very short time. Visit for a lesson that will improve your game for good!
