I first got into golf when I was 8 years old and travelled to my course back in Watertown NY (Ives Hill CC). Upon arriving at the course dressed in Sunday golfing attire I was introduced to the head professional Dan O'Leary. After meeting him, I followed my dad out of the pro shop and up towards the first tee where I was to start my journey into professional golf stardom. However, a big hand grabbing my right shoulder and spinning me around quickly told another tale...I looked up into the old pro's eyes and asked what was going on. He answered by simply handing me two shag bags, pointed to the driving range and said "welcome to your first day of work". Needless to say I was seriously let down, however, four years later I found myself as basically the self proclaimed director of golf and operations! I was closing the pro shop, running tournaments and dealing with inventory before I was a teenager!
The lessons I learned during my summers at the course were invaluable in the areas of discipline, customer service, education, and playing itself. I feel I am where I am today due to those lessons learned nearly 3 decades ago.
My passion now lies within the same confines of my earlier days in Watertown NY at Ives Hill CC. I continue to learn about the golfing business and the ins and outs that come with it. I have learned a tremendous amount of discipline and humility through both this game and the business aspects within. I believe; 'If you ever stop learning it is the day that you start dying in this industry'. Customer service is something I pride myself on and still remember the members that I served over 30 years ago, and those lessons have helped shape who I am today with my current clients both professional and amateur.
My goal is to help my clients. I am very proud of how much I care for the success of my clients and I continue to push myself to be better for them, in all areas of golf and life improvement. It is this passion that keeps me in the game that has helped shape me into the person I am today.
