Private Golf Lessons
One-on-one instruction with a PGA Professional for individuals

If you are near the San Francisco bay area in Northern California, or are planning to travel to this area, you can arrange private lessons to work with me in person on any aspect of your game. Continue below for more information.

If you are not from the Northern California area and are not planning to travel here anytime soon get my golf instruction books, a 4-volume series of paperbacks covering the entire game in detail.

Student Comments

"Just a brief thank you note for your help. I played a round yesterday and haven't enjoyed a day on the golf course so much in quite a long time. I hit nine greens in regulation. Those that I missed, for the most part, were near-misses. I only out and out missed two shots all day, and those were because I lost focus... Thanks to your efforts and patience, I am feeling much better about my game."

"You may not believe it, but that was just about the best lesson I ever had. I think I absorbed and understood more than ever before."

Steve S.
Danville, CA

"Thanks for the lessons. I have played a couple of times after going to the range nightly. I am getting longer distances and my shots, when contacted properly, are going straight."

Janie B.
Oakland, CA

"Thanks, I enjoyed the session very much. I found your instruction very helpful, and when I can work out time to do another session, I'll do it with you. In my business, an acid-test question is 'would you recommend to a friend?' My answer is yes."
