Career highlights: Head professional at Manor CC prior to going to Pine Ridge. Over the last 13 years, he has developed a Junior program that began as a small number of day camps and now includes some 500 children on a weekly basis during the summer months.

Tip: The average person grips the club too tightly. Tension is energy, so you would like the player to grip it just enough to control it. On a scale of 1-10, I would want a grip of about 3-4.
