Head Golf Professional

(864) 672-1005



Originally from Georgetown, OH, my passion for golf developed while in college working a summer job on a golf course’s maintenance staff. I quickly became infatuated with not only the game, but the profession and decided to pursue a career in golf.  I obtained an Assistants Position at the exclusive Quail West Golf & Country in Naples, FL, quickly ascended to First Assistant, and continued to serve the members at Quail West for nine years. Following my time at Quail West, I joined the team at Olde Hickory and now have the pleasure to serve as Head Golf Professional at Thornblade. I am a Class A PGA Professional, Certified PGA Professional in Golf Operations and have a vast background in several aspects of golf instruction, biomechanics, and fitness, such as FlightScope, AimPoint, TPI, Golf Fitness X, and Functional Movement Systems. I have also had several fortunate opportunities to study under world renowned golf instructors Butch Harmon, Chuck Cook, Jim McLean, Mike Adams, Sean Foley, and Chris Cuomo. I was also nominated and a finalist for the 2020 PGA Teacher of the Year in the Southwest Florida Chapter, 2020 Southwest Florida Chapter PGA Professional of Year Award and PGA Professional Development Award. 


Fun Facts About Me:
