After a college golf career on the third-ranked Brigham Young University golf team (including teammates Johnny Miller, Buddy Allin and Mike Reid), I have worked in professional golf in every imaginable capacity, from entry level shop assistant to head professional at public and resort golf courses in Utah, California, Nevada and Arizona. Represented all of the courses at which I worked in local tournaments, compiling a successful local tournament career and winning events in all three sections of the PGA where I have worked. At Recreation Park, which was at the time the third busiest golf course in America, I steadily became their most productive instructor, training the young Paul Goydos and actually teaching each of the other professionals on the staff as well as the Head Golf Professional. I had regular students from as far away as San Francisco, San Diego and Las Vegas while at Recreation Park. Developed and owned a small market golf management company under the auspices of which I operated both the Kanab, Utah and the Mesquite, Nevada facilities. I was the first professional at Coral Cliffs Golf Course, and established operating and maintenance programs that are still in place today. The Peppermill Palms Golf facility went from a deficit of almost $500,000 to break-even during my tenure. At both Coral Cliffs and Glen Canyon I had over 100 juniors annually in my junior instructional programs, out of which several high school champions and college scholarships emerged. Emphasized instruction in my later career. Authored the book Break 80 Golf, and developed the Break 80 Golf School while at the Continental Country Club in Flagstaff. While there I developed a strong following from the greater Phoenx area. Still in regular touch with Paul Goydos, now of the PGA Tour and ranked in the top 60 in the world. I give private instruction now to long time students on an exclusive basis.
