Brian is a passionate Golf Professional with over 10 years of teaching experience. Over that time Brian, has taught many different skill levels and age groups how to play better, and have more fun while doing it.
Brian's swing philosophy of focusing on the needs and experience of the student and molding a swing and program to help best benefit them began to take shape at the Golf Academy of America (Phoenix, AZ). There Brian was instructed by 5 PGA members, including 2 PGA Master Professionals Pete Huber, a golf digest best teacher in America, and Tim Eberlein, 3 time Southwest PGA section Horton Smith award winner, and 3 Quarter Century PGA members. There he learned not only the principles of the golf swing, but how to teach and grow this great game. In addition, Brian interned under John Stahlschmidt at TPC Scottsdale’s PGA tour Academy for a year. After school, Brian moved back east ending up at Chesapeake Bay Golf Club in Rising Sun, MD learning more about the business and swing from Andy Barbin the 2010 PGA National presidents Plaque award winner and Finalist for National PGA Golf Professional of the year in 2011.
Brian enjoys explaining the mechanics of the golf swing, as well as the values of the game. During his career, he has taught 1,000’s of golfers of all ages, including four years as the Head Golf Coach for the North East High School team where several golfers went to the state tournament during his tenure. He also was Head Golf Coach at Cecil College where his team competed in the NJCAA for three years.
Brian has had the opportunity to volunteer at several event and organizations including caddying for the LPGA, working the famed 16th hole at Scottsdale and member of the Philadelphia PGA PAO Committee for Junior Golf, Finance and Charity.
