Birthplace:Prince Albert, SK Canada

Career Highlights:

  • PGA Class "A" member for 17 years
  • Head Golf Professional and Director of Golf PGA teaching experience for over 15 years
  • I have given lessons to players of all levels from beginners to advanced and have even coached tour players

Teaching Principles:

My teaching philosophy is to keep it simple. You have to set up to ball and have proper posture and aim correctly first. If you do that you have a better chance of hitting the ball on line. I feel everyone is different physically and I teach everyone different based on there physical ability. The golf swing is a rotary motion and our body is the driving force of the wheel.

Birthplace: Beaumont, TX

Career Highlights:

  • 2000 Assistant Golf Professional, Twin Oaks Golf Club, San Marcos, CA
  • 2001-2004 Assistant Golf Professional, Whitney Oaks Golf Club, Rocklin, CA
  • 2004-2007 Head Golf Professional, Whitney Oaks Golf Club, Rocklin, CA

Teaching Principles:

As most teachers will tell you, having strong fundamentals is a must. I think that the lack of basic fundamentals is what creates most of the swing errors in a majority of golfers. I believe that building a base of fundamentals focusing on the grip, setup, and alignment coupled with an ability to make a balanced swing are the keys to playing better golf. Incorporating these fundamentals will make it possible for the student to develop a good, repeatable golf swing.
