About Preston

After growing up on James Island as a member of the James Island High School golf team, I went on to play at Spartanburg Methodist before transferring and graduating from Charleston Southern University. Now a PGA Class A Professional with experience working with individuals and groups of all ages and skill levels, I bring my experience of playing on the collegiate level to help my students improve their abilities. Enhancing your skills in all aspects of golf — from the swing to management of the golf course — is very important to me. In my opinion, with good techniques, excellent practice routines, and course management knowledge, anyone can prepare themselves to excel on any golf course. I have been fortunate enough to receive the honor of being selected a US KIDS TOP 50 Instructor in 2020 and 2021 then selected as a US KIDS TOP 50 MASTER INSTRUCTOR in 2022.

Coach Preston has been great with my son. He enjoys the individual lessons and we’ve seen a huge improvement in his golf game. The lessons have helped him gain confidence in his shot. My son looks forward to each lesson. Thank you

Preston is great with my 8 year old. Availability is great along with pricing.

Best coach out there. Felt like he was teaching the secret to golf.

Preston is the absolute best coach! He is so patient and makes learning the game so fun! Would recommend him to everyone without any doubt. Whether you're new to golf or a seasoned player, Preston is the guy to go to!

Preston is an excellent teacher and coach. He has worked with my 15 year old son for two years and he’s proven to be an amazing teacher who communicates clearly, is super responsive and gets great results.
