Dear Golf Student – Welcome to: Results Based Coaching (RBC®)! Did you know the old model of just beating balls, and driving range lessons is broken? After 30 years of coaching golf, I find myself in a fortunate position to do the thing I love most, exclusively coach and help others play great golf! I know that this may not be a big surprise to many of you but being independent of employers has allowed me to focus my career on helping students reach their goals of enjoying and playing better golf. Supported by the Results Based Coaching approach which combines Play, Individual, Team, & Virtual coaching methods, your golf game is guaranteed to get better!

“David’s passion for golf and love of the game is apparent the moment you meet him. He has a brilliant eye for instantly identifying the issues at play– whether you’re working on woods, irons or pitching and putting. He is incredibly patient and supportive and is the reason I’ve been able to take over 20 strokes (and counting!) off my score. At the heart of it all, he simply wants his students to enjoy the game as much as he does – whatever your level.” Barb S.
