About Rob
I have 20 years of golf industry experience including golf instruction, clinics, business ownership, Head Professional
experience, golf equipment sales, club fitting, and club repair.  I have worked for top ranked facilities like Medinah
Country Club, Omni Tucson National, Geneva National, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and the Marriott Chardonnay
Golf Club in Napa, CA. I graduated from the Pro Golf Management Program at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, MI,   
and achieved my Class A status with the PGA of America in 1997. I am currently a member of the Illinois PGA.
Rob's Teaching Philosophy
I like to start my lessons by interviewing my students with basic questions like:  What goals or expectations do they have for
themselves, and from the lessons?  What physical limitations do they have?   Have their clubs been fitted? These are critical
factors that help me understand where each individual is coming from. I like to focus a lot on the basics like grip, setup,
posture, alignment, and ball position.  I want my students to have basic understanding that how all these factors effect ball
flight. I like to use video because it helps me see key swing factors, and more importantly, it helps my students see
exactly what is happening. I also like to use training aids and drills to help people improve.
