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. This has been my passion growing up, and now I get to do what I love for a living.

Greg does a great job of understanding what you want to accomplish with your lesson time -I have had just two lessons and have already seen results. I would definitely recommend.

Greg has been a great instructor. The film review he incorporates into the lessons are great for a visual learner like myself. Additionally, he’s been a great person to review on the course performance with and checks in periodically during independent practice sessions.

Greg has been great helping me find my swing. I’ve taken a few lessons with him now and have easily taken ten strokes off of my round. Definitely go see him if you’re having trouble striking the ball consistently.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I have package deals and monthly memberships. Package deals are cheaper than the rack rate of one lesson.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We discuss goals, if any physical limitations and what areas need improvement in order to play your best golf. Move along to check your fundamentals and give options then hit shots to check your current motion. Learn and have fun throughout the process!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Yes. I attend seminars at various locations with the PGA of America.
