Who am i?
I am not a Doctor and do not have a PhD. I am a PGA of Canada “A” Professional, PGA of BC Member and former PGA Tour of Canada player with victories at the Junior, Collegiate, Amateur and Professional level.
I teach the golf swing and coach the mental side of golf.
I never stop learning to discover why we play golf the way we do! I have studied and researched golf for the past twenty five years and was lucky enough to gain a wealth of experience and knowledge along the fairways. I am here to share this knowledge with our future champions.
WHAT I DO?
I am here to share this experience of "driving the range of the mind!"
Areas for exploration include putting, full swing, short game, sports psychology, goal setting, visualization, breath control, college preparation, pre-shot routine, tournament scheduling, meditation, self image, strategy, accountability and much more.
I take the game of the golf, on and off the driving range, on and off the putting green and inside of our brains. I am here to share in the journey of belief.
WHY IT MATTERs?
Most of us know that the game of golf is played "upstairs". There are very few opportunities to work on the mental side. Many elite players have swing coaches and personal trainers however very few add a mental coach or sport psychologist to their roster.
I am here to guide you to chase your dreams through real life experience and here to help you become the player that you deserve to be through the latest swing techniques and working on the mental side.
