About Derek

I played college golf at Drake University and on the mini tours for 3 years. I spent 9 years working and teaching at Jack Nicklaus’ home club, The Bear’s Club. After that I moved to Utah and my current job at Red Ledges, where I also spent time training under Jim McLean. I am currently the Head Professional at Red Ledges and the Master Instructor at the Jim McLean Golf School at Red Ledges.
