Introduction: *Online lessons are available* With my time at Golf Academy of America, I worked with over 50 of the top PGA professionals in the Carolina section. This experience taught me to base my teaching on fundamentals and mechanics to develop skill. As we all know, there are many ways to swing a club. Some fast, some slow and the in-between depending on your balance, rhythm and tempo. There are certain characteristics that all good players have in common; we work on these key essentials so you end up swinging the club like you want but becoming more skillful in your own style. Experience: -20 years in the golf business and still learning -Golf Academy of America Graduate -Certified golf professional -Completed Methods of Teaching 1 & 2 through the PGA of America -Callaway Gardens Teaching Professional -Highland Country Club 1st Assistant Golf Professional Playing Accomplishments: -Winner of the 2009 GSGA Pub Links -Qualified for the Yamaha Atlanta Open -T4 2011 Pro-Pro -T3 2016 Summergrove stroke play Player PGA Georgia section circuit I enjoy meeting new people and helping them reach their goals and spending time outdoors.

Greg is the best, I have been having lessons with him for the past few months and can see a drastic improvement. His ways of teaching is very clear and easy to understand, I’m able to make adjustments on my swing very easily based on his feedbacks. He is also very encouraging and a nice person overall!

Unbelievable knowledge of the swing. Intelligent instruction that I wish I would have had a lot earlier in my golf “career”. He simplifies things and explains the why in regards to swing changes. Greg will definitely improve your game even after one lesson.

This was my first golf lesson ever and I don't think I could have picked a better pro. Greg is extremely patient and was able to show me several techniques that improved my swing on day one. I will definitely be using him more in the future and will be recommending him to fellow golfers. Thanks a ton for your help Greg.

Do you find yourself thinking that golf lessons are expensive but also catch yourself dreaming about that latest driver or new iron set during work? You keep telling yourself “My clubs are 3-5 years old, they’re becoming outdated and obsolete so if I buy the latest technology my game has to improve!”. Do yourself (and your wallet) a favor and don’t buy new equipment until you get lessons!! I’m 28 (been playing my whole life) and never had golf lessons because I fell into the “There’s no way I’m spending $$$ on lessons when I can watch YouTube videos and buy that sweet new driver instead!” category. I’m also an idiot. If I had known then what I learned in TWO lessons with Greg my entire life could have been drastically different. There’s a reason he has such great reviews! I just got done with my fourth lesson and he has got me swinging on plane (from an over the top swing that never felt like I was over the top) and has me consistently striking the ball as pure as ever. That’s right, you know when you’re playing and you hit that ONE shot a round that keeps you coming back for more? No new clubs will ever give you that feeling consistently if you aren’t swinging correctly. Greg provides excellent feedback and can really tailor your lesson how you want it to go. More of a picture person? He’s got them. Video of pros with him demonstrating where you need to be? Check. Video feedback of your own swing readily available for breakdown seconds after? Got that too (and if you choose another instructor who doesn’t do this.... find another)! He also has exercises for when you’re not at the range or course. It’s possible I rambled a bit but if you’ve made it this far, you obviously want to improve your golf game so why not drop a few dollars to make you enjoy it more?

Greg is a dedicated and immensely patient coach. He creates a safe environment for his students to ask questions, try and fail, and emphasizes on drilling the fundamentals - something I truly appreciate. Lessons with Greg are enjoyable and fruitful- I always find myself improving (as evidenced by the videos) after every session. Thanks Greg for making my golf journey such a pleasant one thus far! :-)
