Favorite thing about job:
  • The game – being able to do what I love for a living is amazing. If I can help someone enjoy the game of golf and see that smile on their face when they hit that one shot, that is what I love.
Most challenging part of job:
  • Learning to work with, mold and teach the many different personalities.
#1 tip to golfers about golf shafts:
  • Get fitted. Most people think they know what they need to play. Let me tell you, not having the correctly fitted shaft is like putting a 4-cylinder engine in an Italian sports car – it just won’t work properly. There are so many things you can do to ensure your shaft is right for you and make sure it works every time.
