I started working in the golf business at Framingham Country Club after graduating from Ithaca College. I then spent three years under the legendary golf pro James “Bucky” O’Brien at The Country Club of Greenfield, where I learned that people skills are the most important skills that you can bring to a club. My first Head Professional position was at Holden Hills Country Club where I served for twelve years. After Holden I spent a year at Wachusett Country Club and then moved on to Petersham Country Club and then Ellinwood Country Club in Athol.
I enjoy teaching all facets of the game and emphasize the short game more than the full swing. Juniors and ladies are an area that I feel can always grow and look forward to working with all the members to improve their games.
When it comes to golf and the golf business, I try to live by three words: Passion, Energy & Excitement. Everyday that I come to work, those are the characteristics that I will bring to the members of Tatnuck Country Club.
In my free time, I enjoy watching my kids play lacrosse, volleyball and track and field and spending time with my faithful companion Sugar (English Bulldog) who you will see around the pro shop and parking lot. She loves Tatnuck just as much as I do.
