About Us

My father introduced golf to me when I was three years old. He would take me to play 18-holes and if I was good, I would receive a Snickers after the front nine and a Frosty Root Beer after the round. For the next few years, I continued to follow along with my dad for the coke and Snickers and would take a few swings too. But during a family vacation to Great Britain, I persuaded Dad (with Mom’s help) to allow me to play golf with him at the birthplace of golf, St. Andrews Scotland. On that fateful day, the “golf bug bit me” and started my love and passion for the game of golf.

Through high school, I was fortunate enough to be taught by two
instructors: Tom Treese and Dan Shelton, PGA. Because of these two coaches, they guided me and my progress to earn a college golf scholarship at Huntingdon College. While at Huntingdon, I earned All-American honors twice and our team won two National Championships.  After college, it took me six years before I took the plunge in the professional ranks. Unfortunately due to shoulder injuries, my professional career ended before it really took off.
My shoulder setback did jumpstart my teaching career and in 2008, I was elected into membership of the Professional Golfer’s Association of America, or PGA. Also in 2008, I was awarded the Dixie Section Junior Golf Leader of the Year and a U.S. Kids Golf Top 50 Junior Golf Instructors Honorable Mentioned award. In 2009, I became certified in the Titleist Performance Institute’s, or TPI, golf fitness training certifications and became certified in the TPI Junior Golf certification. Within the TPI Junior certification, I am one of two certified junior  level 3 golf instructors in the state of Georgia.
