Director of Instruction/ Teaching Professional
WHY DO I TEACH GOLF? Simply, PEOPLE. I love helping people. I don't just teach to play better, but I truly believe every player can increase their enjoyment of the game. Golf is such a fascinating game that allows us to connect with the people we love and complete strangers in a unique way. I am forever grateful for the people I've met through the game and have built lasting relationships through teaching and coaching.
I also believe golfers get more enjoyment out of building their awareness of their own golf swing. From fundamentals to advanced techniques, different personalities and interactions, my students and I are constantly learning. I believe Professional Instruction benefits the player greatly by utilizing different perspectives to help us achieve our goals.
Youth and Junior instruction is a major passion of mine. The future of our game is very bright! Kids are starting younger and younger. It is simply amazing to see the skills coming from Junior Golfers!
I truly enjoy helping students of all abilities find their maximum enjoyment of the game. Whether you're a beginner, an experienced golfer, or you're maintaining a scratch handicap, I think there is always something more to experience within the game. With over 3,000 hours of instruction experience, I feel like I've developed an evolving perspective on what connects my students to the game.
I am thrilled that SGS has grown to three locations, Oak Glen, Applewood Hills, and Gem Lake Hills! I have been mentored and taught by some of the best instructors in the state and across the country. I feel like these different perspectives have shaped my teaching and coaching philosophies into where they are today, and I am very grateful!
