I grew up at a golf course named Lake of Egypt Country Club in Southern Illinois. Both my father and grandfather are PGA members and they saw it fitting that I be a golfer as well so when I was able to stand somewhat on my own, they put a golf club in my hand to start my golf journey, or use as a crutch. I had success as a junior, amateur and professional but my biggest accomplishment is an albatross. I started giving golf lessons in 2003 and over the years I have been fortunate enough to meet some great instructors and really work on my knowledge of the swing. I am extremely happy to be able to bring that knowledge to the Reid West Golf Academies.
I have worked alongside many different types of instructors and I have found that the best way to promote the game is working with one swing at a time, just like a signature, the golf swing is unique to each individual. I like to work with the foundation given and build from there checking the basics (GPS-tells you where you’re going) and specifics and making the proper adjustments.
Reid West Academies provides a fun filled, relaxed atmosphere. We provide instruction for all levels both individual and group so we have something for everyone.
