About Me

I am a native of Rhode Island and spent my entire youth excelling in competitive sports. Coming to the game of golf after a baseball career helped me keep my competitive juices flowing. My golf career began at Foxwood Golf & Country Club in Richmond Rhode Island over 20 years ago. I have also worked in the private, public, semi -private and resort sectors of the golf industry. I have years of retail and wholesale experience in the industry, long with my experience as a Sales Representative with Adams Golf, it has helped mold my ability to club fit quickly & accurately. Proper fitting clubs help every player get the max out of their ability while minimizing ball curvature and helping shot height.

  My teaching philosophy is one that has been molded from working with some of the best professionals in the country. Some of my mentors/ personal friends include - Eddie Kirby, Dave Marcotte, Tony Martinez, Abe Hernandez, Randy Smith, Pomp Braswell III & Tim Cusick. Joining the staff at the Jim Mclean Golf School in 2014 was a dream come true and has made me a better, more aware and more consistent instructor. GASP - Grip, Alignment, Stance, Posture are the key fundamentals used in my instruction to build a solid foundation. Being able to work with individuals of all abilities is strength of my coaching. I currently instruct juniors, ladies and men of all ages, adapting to my students and not instructing one golf swing.
