have been playing golf since early high school, starting as a member
of the St. Charles High School Golf Team; later, while serving in the
Military, I was a part of the Fort Bragg Golf Team. Aspiring to
one day play professional golf, I played a number of Mini-Tour
events in Florida from 1980 through 1984, and ultimately have played in
2 PGA Tour events and several Illinois PGA events.
My professional experience has also included
responsibilities as the Head Golf Professional at Blackhawk Golf Course
in St. Charles, as well as Director of Instruction of
The Pheasant Run Resort Golf Academy in St. Charles and my current
position of Director of
Mill Creek Golf Course in Geneva.
I have had the distinct pleasure of working,
for a number of years, with individuals and golf teams from St. Charles,
Geneva and Batavia (Illinois) high schools, as well as the women's team
from Northern Illinois University.
My winter teaching facility
includes top-notch, state-of-the-art equipment
and a full repair shop, where I have the tools necessary to fit your
clubs with new grips, as well as adjust the lie and loft on them. I also have a Jupiter Sports
engraving machine, and offer personalized gift and promotional products
such as custom bag tags, ball repair tools and other items one might
need for a complete golf outing.
