Golf Performance Coach

Costa Mesa, CA

- 10+ years of Teaching Experience - PGA Class - A - Taught in 7 States and 3 Countries (Spain and Portugal) - Longest tenure coach at UGP (6 years in May) Teaching philosophy- Build a swing based on freedom of movement in the body and in the club. Build the skills necessary to navigate the golf course. Build the habits to enjoy the game for a lifetime. Coaching is more than swing technique, it's also about inspiring and motivating people to have a passion for the game. Experience- I started playing golf at the age of 6 and competitively at the age of 14. At age 17, I began my journey in the golf business working at a local course picking up range balls, and walking 9 holes after work. Inspired by my grandfather to pursue a career in golf, I entered the Golf Academy of America in 2004 and began my professional journey. After graduating in 2006, I started working in the cart barn and guest services at Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, FL. In April 2008, I was hired as the First Assistant at Moody Garden Golf Course in Galveston, TX running daily operations and teaching junior golf camps each summer. After 2.5 years, I moved to Yuma, AZ to work as a First Assistant at Yuma Golf and Country Club, this is where I started to teach private lessons and made the choice to pursue a full time teaching position. One year later, in September of 2011, I started my journey in teaching working for Golf Made Simple, here I taught 3-Day golf schools moving to a new location every 6 months. Throughout my tenure, at GMS I taught in 7 different states, 3 countries, and 12 locations. In May of 2015, I decided to settle down in one spot and move back to California to join Urban Golf Performance. Almost 6 years later, I help run one of three facilities down in Orange County and look forward to opening 20 more!
