PGA Teaching Professional

A proud student of the game for over 40 years! In 1987 I began my professional golf career at Coghill Country Club in Lemont, Il as an assistant golf professional and instructor. In my many years of experience, I have managed and instructed at public and private golf courses in the Midwest and South Florida. The vast experience I have received training one-on-one, group lessons, and junior summer camps have expanded my knowledge and expertise for coaching adolescents and adults. My passion for teaching the golf swing led me back to instructing on a full-time basis in 2017. I believe fundamentals and working with any physical limitations are at the core of developing a great golf swing. These two things combined with golf course management will lead you to improve your golf game. Career Highlights: PGA South Florida Chapter - Education Chairman, South Florida PGA Section Horton Smith Award, South Florida PGA Chapter Horton Smith Award, U.S. Kids Certified Coach

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.

I come to White Hawk Country Club from Tuckaway Golf Club in Illinois, where I was the golf professional during the 2023 season. I am a PGA of America Associate and currently working through the PGA PGM 3.1 program. Teaching the golf swing has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. One of my strong beliefs is that there is no perfect golf swing, but you can always master your own. I am looking forward to help grow the game of golf for people of all ages throughout the community.
