|Education Background:||PGM Graduate|
I was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and moved to Calgary soon after. I am a husband to an amazing wife and a father to my to great kids. I currently sit on the PGA of Alberta Board and enjoy being part of a great organization.
My golf career started at Priddis Greens and I turned professional at the Glencoe Golf and CC the following year. I spent 10 years at the Glencoe under Don Price and then was fortunate to qualify for the Canadian Tour where I played full time professionally for 3 years. I tried a few other things after playing but realized my passion will always be golf. Playing made me realize that I wanted a different kind of help then what was available so I opened my own teaching academy. I find it very rewarding to bring people to the game of golf and help those that are in the game play better. I am on a mission to become the coach that I wish I could have found when I needed help playing. One of the top qualities any golfer can have is desire, give me that and I will give you all the help we can to help reach your goals.
