I grew up in Connecticut, playing golf for most of my life. It wasn’t until I was 10 years old that I hit that “perfect shot” and I said to myself, “That felt amazing, I can’t wait to do that again”. From there, my obsession only grew. Once I entered high school, I got a job at our local course, Newtown Country Club, in the pro shop. I worked there for 4 years learning the ins and outs of the country club world, eventually becoming the Varsity Captain of my high school golf team.
I enrolled in the Nike Golf School at Williamstown College every Summer until I was 16 years old, which was the age limit at the time. I received the MVP and Coaches award numerous times as a student there, and upon graduation from my last year, I was asked by the camp director to come to work for them the following Summer. Normally, the minimum requirement to be an instructor is 18, but he saw so much promise in me that I was allowed to start a year early at 17, as a Counselor in Training. I am now 32 and have been an instructor (now head instructor) there every Summer since, helping kids between the ages of 10-16 learn, grow, and excel in the game of golf. We teach everything from the fundamentals to mental game to long term growth and very specific swing mechanics. The director who hired me has been my boss and mentor since I’ve been learning the game, world renowned sports psychologist and acclaimed Golf Channel contributor Dr. Robert K. Winters. In the interim, I have caddied for many fellow golfers in qualifiers for the PGA, LPGA and Symetra tours, as well as State and Club Championships. I have over 20 years experience in the game and have seen it from so many angles. I love learning more about it everyday.
Golf is my passion, so let's work together to help make it yours too! I'm your guy for any fundamental, swing, and equipment advice. Look forward to chatting!
