About John

Instructor’s Statement / Bio

It's my passion to help others enjoy the great game of golf even more. Where ever you are in your golf game, let me help you take the next step to improve your game. I enjoy the instant feedback on a students face when they realize what they can do! I'm most thrilled with my young students that go on and earn college scholarships!!


I have been teaching group and individual lessons for over 35 years. I have been a member of the Professional Golfers Association since February of 1987. I have taken lessons from some of the best instructors in the world (Butch Harmon and Dr. Jim Suttie to name a couple) and have played with and taught players from all tour levels of ability.
