Golf Lessons In Arizona
I was born in Texas in 1952 and started playing golf at age nine. After competing in Jr. and high school golf in the 60’s, I received a scholarship to participate in the golf program at the University of Houston. From 1975 to ’79, I worked as an Assistant Pro at several Houston area Country Clubs under Head professional Jim Deaton including; Elkins Lake, Walden on Lake Conroe, and Walden on Lake Houston. I worked in the pro shop and gave lessons at each of those facilities. During that point, I played Houston area tournaments and acquired sponsorships to participate on golf tours in Australia, Asia and the U.S. In 1981, I was offered a teaching position at Raveneaux Country Club in Houston, TX and remained there for several years before moving to Mesa, Arizona in 1985. Teaching golf lessons in Arizona primarily at Dobson Ranch, has kept me busy. I am always learning and finding better ways to teach this fascinating game. Learning to become a better teacher is an on going, sometimes trial and error quest. Yes, there is physical knowledge involved but the difficult part is figuring out what mental approach works best for the individual. This is where years of teaching experience plays a key role in helping my students advance.
