After 25 years as a Head Golf Professional in the Pittsburgh Area, Jim relocated to Virginia with the desire to continue teaching the game of golf.  Although his students include professional golfers and scratch amateur players, Jim’s main interest centers on developing beginner golfers of all ages.  Jim’s philosophy as an instructor is to assess each student starting with their goal as a golfer along with other factors such as physical abilities and the amount of practice time available to develop a program that will maximize the student’s investment.
