I have recently completed my 24th season as the head men’s and women’s golf coach at DePauw University. I have returned home this summer to my “Region” roots to spend more time with family.  As an instructor, my teaching philosophy is to learn about your athletic background, do a physical evaluation and then help you set goals as a golfer.  I will observe you as a golfer either on the driving range or on the course, then use a variety of teaching aids to provide you feedback in an effort to allow for the most efficient means of learning.  I use both Trackman and video analysis to help you learn, along with more traditional modes of instruction.  As a former NCAA D1 collegiate player and PGA professional I also understand and implement mental strategies used commonly in Sport Psychology.
30-year member PGA of America, 25 years as an NCAA D1 and D3 Men’s and Women’s Golf Coach at Indiana University, University of New Orleans and DePauw University. 20 years as a golf instructor including First Tee, Special Olympics, Nike Golf Camps, University Golf Camps at Duke University, Indiana University, Indiana Golf Foundation.  Coached both senior and junior high golf teams. Instructed women’s instructional program at Tiger Pointe Country Club along with overseeing junior golf programs at Lakes of the Four Seasons and Martinsville Country Club.

Improving your swing and your game will require a consistent effort, focused in the proper areas. Let’s figure out what “YOUR BEST SWING” is, what your body likes to do, and work at becoming an expert in maintaining and understanding that swing. My teaching objective is to help you understand your swing, help you learn your proper fundamentals and swing keys, provide you with a pathway for improvement, and coach you down that pathway.
