About Payton

I have been playing golf for 23 years and enjoy helping others fall (more) in love with the game I love most. Growing up, golf was and continues to be a family sport for me. My passion for teaching began at age seven when I started teaching my Grandma how to golf. I began my career in teaching early at the age of 16 and continue to seek ways to better myself as an instructor on the daily. I graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University with my degree in PGA Golf Management and have since been traveling North and South as a seasonal professional. I currently teach in Florida and in Massachusetts. I also provide Virtual Swing Analysis and Live Instruction on the CoachNow mobile app. I enjoy working with people of all walks of life, and all skill levels and abilities. I truly believe that we all have our own unique swings, and I focus on providing my students with what their swing style and body type demands. Simplicity is a big key with my instruction, and I look for the fewest possible changes that we need to make in order to improve ball contact and outcome. Short-game improvement, full swing, trouble shots, course management, mental performance, pre/post shot routines, and on-course instruction are just a few of the areas we could improve in your game together.

Payton understands that there is no “one golf swing that fits all” solution. Her lessons are customized to each individual. I would certainly recommend Payton to anyone that wants to be a better golfer.

I am new to golf and just learning. Payton was so kind and patient with no judgement. She was able to quickly diagnose my issues, and more importantly she was able to give me specific actions to successfully improve.

Your pointers helped me go from a 120 to a 101 on the same course just two weeks apart.



I won our 1st Round Match yesterday 4 and 3. I shot an 81 and hit 11 fairways. Something clicked, clearly your advice is sticking.
