I graduated from high school just south of Dayton, Ohio.   Since the age of 15, I knew I wanted to be a PGA Golf Professional.  I attended Miami University while serving my PGA apprenticeship and was employed as a golf professional two days after graduation in Cincinnati.  While in Cincinnati I met my beautiful wife, Cara. After we wed in 2008, we moved to her home town of Charleston, West Virginia where we still live with our two wonderful sons. Take advantage of my 25 plus years of teaching experience. I believe in the American Developmental Model and the “part to whole method” of building and improving golf swings. Each lesson typically focuses on one “part” of the swing so that once it’s mastered, it becomes part of the “whole” swing. Using this method is effective and keeps the student from being overwhelmed with too many thoughts at one time.
