RYG™ Certified Teaching Professional
Calling Colorado home, I have spent the last 12 years in Arizona working in the golf industry. In 2007, I moved to Arizona to attend The Golf Academy of America. Upon graduation, I realized that helping people play better golf is what I wanted to do. From there, I went to Arizona State to pursue my PGA Class A membership as well as advance my degree. During my time in Zona, I played golf for both Scottsdale Community College and eventually Arizona State. While attending school as well as playing college golf, I also helped run a pro-shop at a local semi-private golf facility. My education, playing and work experience were incredible building blocks for my career in golf.
Upon Graduation, I began working for GolfTEC where I would go on to become a Center Manager/Director of Instruction for their facilities in Scottsdale. Towards the end of my time with GolfTEC, club fitting had become my passion. As such, I moved on to a few high-end club fitting boutiques before ultimately finding RedTail Golf Center. I have had the good fortune to work with some of the best players in the world over my time in the golf industry fitting golf clubs, none of the places I have ever been, however, compare to what we have here at RedTail. The technology, resources and level of care that exists here is second to none. Through my time in golf, I have learned one key thing "people don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care" and I intend to bring that attitude to RedTail with me every day.
During the last 12 years, I have worked in the areas of club fitting and instruction. During that time, I have performed over 2,000 fittings and 10,000 hours of lessons, from PGA Tour professionals to very beginners. I have loved every minute of my experience as I have helped hundreds of golfers to play better golf, and enjoy this wonderful game. When it comes to club fitting, I have a special focus on set composition and functional gap analysis. I want to help a golfer develop a set of clubs for which they know exactly how far they hit each one. To this end, I strongly believe that club fitting is important for all golfers from beginner or developing golfers, to the best players in the world. No matter where your game currently stands, I believe it is important for you to know exactly what you want to do with each club in your bag. Whether you have a general question about club fitting or equipment, or you want to talk about wedge and putter fitting, my goal is to become your “go to” source for all things in golf.
I hope you will allow me the opportunity to help you with your equipment and your game. I know you will be amazed how properly fit equipment can help improve and enhance your enjoyment of the game. Even if you have been recently fit for your clubs, and you just want some to evaluate your set, we are here for you.
When I’m not fitting clubs I’m probably out swinging my own. I absolutely love golf, and I have for as long as I can remember. If I’m not golfing though, I’ll be found out riding a motorcycle or enjoying some activity in the mountains. Another big passion of mine big is cooking, I love to try to make food that is better than I can find at a restaurant. Being new to Oregon I’d love to learn your favorite places to go, from the food to the best places to golf or hang out. So please, come by and say hello anytime!!
