About Tim

Originally from a small town in New Hampshire, Tim grew up playing baseball in the spring and summer, soccer in the fall, and basketball and skiing during the winter. He filled the rest of his time reading and competing on the state and national level in woodworking and music. After graduating high school, he attended Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC earning a Bachelor’s of Science majoring in Criminal Justice and minoring in Spanish. Tim returned to the New England area where he worked as a State Trooper in the Vermont State Police from 2009 to 2013. Among his duties there, he worked as a Field Training Officer and was a member of the Tactical Services Unit. He then enlisted in the United States Army as an infantryman. After basic training, he attended Airborne School and then the Ranger Assessment and Selection Program. After selection, he was assigned to 3rd Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment where he held multiple positions. Tim was medically retired in 2020 following his third deployment. It was during his time in the Army that Tim discovered the game of golf. He was hooked instantly and found every excuse to find himself on the golf course. Following his deployment in 2019, one of his therapists asked him what physical activity he wanted to be able to do. There was only one answer: golf. His therapist told him about a program he had just learned about called PGA HOPE. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a PGA HOPE program in GA at the time. It took several more months of therapy before Tim was allowed to start playing again and it was in golf that he found an unknown mental and emotional respite. When faced with the need for a new career, Tim was determined to ensure no other Veteran wound find themselves without a PGA HOPE program. His girlfriend (now wife) was moving to Fayetteville, NC in late 2020, so he looked for his options for a pathway to PGA membership in the area. A quick Google search revealed an obvious choice: Methodist University. At Methodist, Tim was able to deep dive into his two passions: PGA HOPE and teaching the game of golf. On top of his studies, he worked as an Assistant Golf Professional at Highland Country Club where he was a US Kids Golf instructor and taught individual lessons to a wide variety of players as well as men’s and ladies’ clinics. He also was the lead in the fitting and club repair operations. He also started his own coaching business, Dynamic Golf Solutions. Tim’s teaching philosophy extends beyond the physical golf swing to include mental strengthening exercises and emotional control techniques. This holistic approach combined with cutting edge technology helps each individual find the complete golfer inside them.
