Upon graduation from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Dave took the advice of his most distinguished mentors and followed his passion for golf. It was his great love of the game, and entrepreneurial spirit, that sparked his passion for delivering world class instruction.
Dave has learned from, and been Certified by some of the very best and most recognizable golf instructors in the world. In 2004, Dave began working with the instructors at the Jim McLean Golf School at the Doral Golf Resort in Miami, Florida. Dave spent three winters working and learning at Doral, even appearing on the Golf Channel with Jim McLean himself. Today, this golf school is ranked the number one school of golf in the country.
In 2007, Dave began working with Craig Harmon. Craig is recognized as one of the finest teachers in the world, is brother to world-class instructor “Butch,” and is the son of 1948 Masters Champion Claude Harmon, who is recognized by many as the greatest teacher of all-time. To say the least, the years spent working with Craig has greatly enhanced Dave’s ability to help his students reach their full potential.
In early 2015, Dave earned his Level One Certification with World Renowned and Top Ranked Golf Instructor Hank Haney. By 2017, Dave became One of Eighteen Certified Level 3 Hank Haney Instructors in the Country. Hank is well known for being the former Coach to Tiger Woods during what has been called “The Greatest Stretch of Golf Ever Played”. This most recent Certification with Hank Haney, is one of Dave’s proudest achievements as a Golf Professional.
