Dave has a strong understanding of the golf swing, short-game techniques and especially playing the game, which make him one of the most sought after teachers in Sacramento.

Teaching philosophy and approach

Dave believes and understands that there is not just one golf swing that has to work for everyone. He believes the game of golf should be taught on an individual basis with consideration for each player’s physical and emotional strengths and weaknesses. Dave uses his great sense of humor to make golf instruction a fun, positive and rewarding experience. Dave will help you understand your strengths and weaknesses and teach you how to become your own best coach.
