Teaching Principles:

My teaching philosophy revolves around educating the golfer on the awareness of patterns that cause the golf ball to fly or roll where it goes. After this is understood, it then becomes a matter of achieving efficiency in the golfer's motion. This is done by reducing excess moving parts and making the golfer's patterns simple and reliable.

Teaching Principles:

My Philosophy is based upon solid fundamentals as a foundation to build from. It's my goal to interpret the mechanics of the swing to the student through verbal, visual and physical cues with a hands on style. The students goals, experience, strength and flexibility help to determine the approach we use to bridge the gap between where we start and what we want to accomplish in the students game. We strive for the best we can be and have fun doing so.

Career Highlights:

  • Played in over 100 professional golf tournaments.
  • 4-time Junior Golf Leader Award nominee by the Central New York PGA.

Teaching Principles:

Simplicity is the key to success. It is my belief that the golf swing has become far too complicated for the average player over the years. With sound fundamentals and a little encouragement, I believe anyone can have a repeatable, efficient golf swing.

Birthplace: West Islip, NY

Turned Professional: 1997

Career Highlights:

  • Extensive teaching career with over 20,000 lessons given.
  • Several top ten finishes in Long Island Open.

Teaching Principles:

My philosophy on teaching the game of golf is to make it as simple as possible for the golfer. With all of the information we have available to us today, it's easy to have too many thoughts running through our heads. The golf swing takes place in a space of about 2 seconds. How much should one think about for a motion that takes 2 seconds?
