Personal Statement:

I truly have been blessed during my time in golf – it has allowed me to travel to some of the most beautiful places, but more importantly introduced me to many of the special people within our industry. Golf truly is a game based on honesty and integrity, and the players, employees, coaches and fellow PGA Professionals I call friends are those who have, and will, serve our industry well into the future. My job here in the Methodist University PGA/PGM Program simply provides me with a chance to give something back to a game that has provided so much to me and my family.
