My Passion for the Game of Golf

I was 5 years old when I was first introduced to the game of golf. I can still remember that first day my dad and grandpa took me to the golf course to have me play a par 3 from the ladies tee.

It was a bitter sweet experience to hit that first shot off the tee and watch it sail about 70 yards down the fairway. I was hooked.

I continued to play the game of golf throughout my childhood and teen years. I played a lot of tournament golf and had my fair share of tournament wins. I made my high school golf team my freshman year and ended up having a successful tenure throughout high school.

I was named MVP my junior and senior years as well as being named to the all-conference team. It was my junior year that we made the state championship and was only the 2nd time in school history that any team has made it.

It was during these years that I started to develop a passion for teaching the game of golf. I loved helping out my teammates whenever they asked for help.

It was towards the end of my junior year while I was working with Andree Martin that I learned through her of David Orr. Orr, who is the Director of Instruction at Campbell University's Professional Golf Management Program, seemed to be the next resource needed for me to further my education in teaching the game of golf.

After doing some research and finding out Campbell University had a PGA Golf Management program I was sold. Campbell was the only school I had applied to and was glad to be accepted.

Excited to have the opportunity to continue furthering my knowledge I hit the ground running studying everything I could. My Sophomore year I was Orr's personal assistant in helping him teach player development classes through the PGM program.

Since then I have been certified by The Golfing Machine and AimPoint Technologies.

In addition, I have also studied and worked under Frank Mantua (U.S. Kids top 50 Instructor) and John Dochety (Medicus instructor, MORAD).

For the first two summers of my college journey I worked at US Golf Camps as a lead putting coach and instructor. It was during this time that I honed my skills for teaching juniors in addition to learning under Frank Mantua.

For my last internship I spent time at Lakewood Country Club in Tullahoma, TN with John Dochety. John who is the Head Professional introduced me to a wealth of information related to the golf swing. It was during this time at Lakewood that I gave multiple private lessons that helped me gain experience in teaching.

Currently, I am working at Rick Murphy Golf Academy in Greensboro, NC as the General Manager and golf instructor. It is through these valuable experiences that I am able to apply my understanding of the game and teach it to students.

I believe there is no single correct way to swing a golf club, rather many ways, and the secret to this game is repeating a motion with a consistent pattern that will produce results.

It is my mission and vision for this site to pass along information to you that will not be just tips but game changing guidelines to follow to help you reach your peak potential in this game of golf.

Bo, I wanted to thank you for your help so far with my golf game. I wanted to let you know that I shot a 75 the other day in a tournament round, my best round ever. I had 32 total putts and NO 3 putts. I definitely couldn't have done that before. Thanks again and I'll be back in touch soon to get some more lessons lined up.


Bo I just wanted to tell you about another tournament I played in. I went out and played and shot a 75 which is one of my best rounds this year so I think everything is coming together. I've been making alot of birdies lately and just wanted to thank you for everything!

I played in a tournament when I got back from camp and shot 76 and came in fourth. I feel much more confident on the course with my mental thoughts. I used the tips you wrote down on that sheet and they have helped me alot.
