I am a third generation golfer (hence my entity 3rd Generation Golf) as my Grandfather played on the Neckbone and Chitterling Tours (minority tours) and my dad was a pure athlete as he was a three sport collegiate athlete. He was scratch as a right hand golfer and a ten handicap left hand. He was a professional bowler with feats of bowling a 300 and making a hole in one in the same week.
I gave up football to play golf in high school as both sports were in the fall but there were no other junior golfers in the state of VA that looked like me. So that motivation led me to work harder and go to the course daily to hone my game. My dad was my teacher/coach, and successful in his own right on the high school level sending many youth to play college sports. With his recent passing I have been fortunate to follow in his footsteps coaching high school and junior college golf at the same schools.
Currently I am General Manager/Head Golf Professional at Forest Park Country Club in Martinsville, VA and I have been with The First Tee of the Triad since 2013.
