Don't let the following bio confuse you. I love people, teaching and reading great instruction books. From Hardy to Hogan from Pelz to Rotella I have read them all, but when it all comes down to it, I consider myself a golf coach not a swing instructor. Looking forward to meeting you.

I am the founder of Your Course and current managing partner of Augusta Ranch Golf Club. For Your Course, I oversee operations, business development and long term strategic planning. As managing partner of Augusta Ranch, purchased in July 2008, I oversee daily operations.

I worked as a Minor League Professional Umpire for nine years(made it up to Triple A and worked many MLB Spring Training Games) before joining the golf business in 1999 starting at Augusta Ranch Golf Club. I became a Class A member of the PGA of America in 2002 when I transferred to the Golf Club at Eagle Mountain. I was formerly the Senior Vice President of Operations and Business Development for Platinum Golf Properties in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Golf Club at Eagle Mountain was ranked #1 Public Golf Course in Arizona in 2006 and 2007 under my direction while achieving record breaking years of profitability. In addition, Augusta Ranch Golf Club has been rated the Best Executive Golf Course in Arizona by the Arizona Republic and was selected Host Club of the Year by the Arizona Women's Golf Association. I am a Certified PGA Professional in General Management and Past President of the Southwest Section PGA (the 5th largest section of the PGA of America). I am also Certified in Advanced Hospitality Revenue Management: Pricing and Demand Strategies through Cornell University. I attended San Diego State University and University of Nevada, Las Vegas, studying Aerospace Engineering.

Most importantly, I am happily married to Karen(she doesn't need my golf instruction) and father to Katie (11)(she says I am an awesome instructor) and Don III (23)(he thinks I am crazy). If you want to know why the 12 year difference in Katie's and Don's ages you will have to schedule a lesson. Oh yeah, this might throw some of you off, but my favorite scripture verse is Proverbs 27:17. See you soon.
