I am an expert in golf and baseball, with 25+ years of experience in each. I was an All-America pitcher at ASU, and taught dozens of clinics and individual lessons. I also was fortunate enough to have taught golf professionally full-time for 15 years, including 6 years teaching for Dave Pelz schools. I have written 4 books and consider myself very proficient in English grammar and spelling.

Along with golf, or baseball, or English, I may also provide life wisdom along the way... perseverance, goal-setting, being realistic, character & integrity. I have a bachelor of science degree in Marketing from Arizona State University. I am now a leg amputee so any instruction would be mostly verbal rather than demonstrative; and if you believe your student would be distracted by this, I understand.

Baseball

I was a Little League all-star. I was the 1971 Best Pitcher in the L.A. City School System (out of 56 schools). I was the All-American Pitcher at Arizona State in 1974. I was a Major League pitcher for Texas and Oakland.

Golf

I have 35 years of experience playing golf. I have 15 years experience teaching full-time, including 6+ for Dave Pelz. I am a serious student of the game and searcher of truths in golf instruction. I authored a 290-page thesis on the incorrect instruction offered on websites, magazines, books, etc.
