About Rich

PGA and ADM-certified Coach with extensive experience coaching adult men/women, juniors, seniors, disabled golfers, and professional athletes; 2020 PGA National Player Development Award winner; and the 2010 and 2019 Metropolitan Section Award winner.

In addition to specializing in junior instruction, my greatest testimony is perhaps the hundreds of adults I have introduced to the game of golf. I am often described as a professional who is always enthusiastic and available to help those who want to learn. From beginners, high handicappers, top amateurs to professionals, I deliver individual one-to-one instruction and multi-learner camps and clinics. All students find my teaching style and philosophy easy to understand and effective, with immediate results that easily carry over to the golf course.
