The game of golf has been a passion of mine since I was 7 years old. Growing up every summer, I would get a season pass at Wing Park, and play all season long. My dedication to the sport allowed me to win all the junior tournaments Elgin offered, two top ten finishes at the high school state golf tournament, obtain a Division 1 golf scholarship, and earn a place within the Illinois PGA section. As I am currently working as a teaching professional at Swing Masters Driving Range, my desire is to inspire young players to enjoy the sport as much as I do. I have the opportunity to introduce these players to the game, establish a solid foundation for them to be the very best they can be, and educate them on the etiquette that the game requires.
