San Francisco, CA
I have a very holistic approach to coaching and teaching. I am not as technical of a teacher as most as coaching, short game practice, short game drills, pre shot routines and course management have become my passions as I have been a collegiate coach for 15 years.
I hope that every student walks away with at least 1 or 2 "nuggets" that they learned or experienced during our time together that they can use in their future golf experiences.
