About Zach

I am a Des Moines native with strong ties to the golf community. I grew up playing multiple sports, but, due to my love and passion for the game, I ultimately stuck with golf.

I graduated from Lincoln High School in 2010, and then attended Indian Hills CC. As a member of the Indian Hills golf team, I helped Indian Hills secure the National Championship in 2011. From there, I transferred to Iowa State, and played as a member of the Iowa State golf team for the next three years. I was a 1st Team All Academic Big 12 member during my time at Iowa State.

After graduating from Iowa State, with a degree in Business Management, I turned professional. Playing on multiple different tours for the next four years, and winning multiple mini tour events. In 2015, I qualified for The John Deere Classic, a PGA Tour event. Since then, I also qualified for a Korn Ferry Tour event in 2018.

In 2019, I decided to join the PGA Program and began my journey towards becoming a Class A PGA Professional, with an emphasis in player development and coaching. I am using both my experience as a PGA Professional, and my passion and drive, to help other golfers improve their game, and enjoy the sport.

My philosophy is to work with you to improve YOUR golf game. Everyone is unique and deserves specific instruction for their golf game, and that is something that I strive for in every lesson. While I like to incorporate athletic movements to the golf swing, each lesson will have its own elements to it.

I hope you consider working with me to take your golf game to the next level!

To say Zach saved my golf game would be a vast understatement. All of our swing and on course work has helped me trim my handicap from 15+ to 6 with plenty of room to grow. I can't thank Zach enough!

Zach took my son from a beginner golfer, to being a high school state qualifier in just one season! The patience he has when working with his students and the positivity he instills is second to none!

The great thing about working with Zach is that he doesn't fit you into a mold. He works to enhance your current skillset and make you the best version of you! I'm finally able to hit the ball solid!
