My passion is to grow the game of a golf. My career in the golf business started in Oklahoma City at Lincoln Park Golf Course, a 36-hole public facility, where I was a cart attendant and played golf just about every day until sunset. It was not long before I knew what I wanted to do for a living. I spent time learning the ins and outs of the golf operation and eventually got promoted as an assistant golf professional. Soon after, I began pursuing a Class A PGA Membership, In the process I have worked at many different type of golf facilities. I have been teaching Golf for 6 years and have specialized with beginner and intermediate golfers of all ages.
