About Eric

Eric has been teaching the game of golf for over 20 years. After mentoring with some of the finest instructors and working with some of the best players in the country, Eric believes there is no exact way to get better or learn the game of golf, except for great effort and a detailed personalized practice and play game plan. Mr. Lohman doesn’t pattern his teaching after one certain philosophy or teacher, but credits PGA Master Instructor Jim Flick as the person who taught him that for a golfer to be successful, they have to be fundamentally strong and also be able to learn why the golf ball reacts the way it does. Eric was an accomplished junior (scratch handicap since age 12), amateur (Washington State Amateur Champion), collegian golfer at UCLA. Now he is a high finisher amongst the best players in the Southern California PGA and has qualified for the past two PGA National Club Professional Championships (2014 & 2015.) Eric was recently awarded the 2017 SCPGA Golf Professional of the Year, Bill Strausbaugh and Tom Addiss Award by the Southern California PGA which recognized his work for career development for PGA professionals. Eric is a trained golf instructor & coach, club fitter and is now certified in the PGA’s PGA.Coach!!!
