Coaching with a priority
on communication.

I know how it feels to be a player who needs to just talk something through.  That’s why I prioritize texting and email correspondence with every player I work with.

“My mental game significantly improved over the course of the year. I would say that my acceptance and ability to stay present improved the most out of all of the topics. I really learned to not put any more or any less pressure on a single shot - they all have the same value. This really helped me deal with any nerves, and it showed at European Q School - I had nerves, but I was able to put them in perspective and stay present.”

- Pro Golfer

“I did so much better today!!! I definitely had my emotions more under control. There were a couple of times where I could have gotten really upset but I stayed in control.”

- Junior Golfer

Player: “Usually I get pissed and give up but I had fun.”

Me: “Why do you think that is?”

Player: “Because I accepted more.”

"After playing competitive golf for 15 years and ultimately reaching the highest levels of amateur golf, I decided that I had a strong desire to help players improve the way I was able to. My improvement came from working with Robert Linville at Precision Golf School, and through that relationship we decided that I would be able to help golfers overcome the same hurdles I did, with a specific focus on the mental game.


So I built Foundations Mental Performance as my way of helping players work on what I think is the most foundational part of the game: the mental, emotional, and psychological parts of golf. I now spend my weeks running Foundations Mental Performance, hosting The Mental Golf Show, and coaching for Precision Golf School, working with players all across the globe."
