Practice is a must and golfers should focus on one or two swing throughs at a time. His passion is working with juniors and teaching them to learn, love and respect the game. He has been a PGA Junior League Coach since 2015 and it has been a very rewarding experience for him. He has worked with high school players and college players for the last seven years.
