Having played for many years as a junior, Tim started his golfing career at White Deer Run Golf Club in Vernon Hills IL. Having worked in all aspects of the golf industry, Tim knew very early that his passion was in teaching the game. It was while working at White Deer Run, that he connected with Todd Sones and the Impact Golf staff that he really learned how to take that passion and turn it into a skill that would truly be able to help people play better golf. During his time with Impact Golf, Tim worked his way up from doing setup and service for the day to day operations, to leading many of the full and half day school programs in addition to giving private lessons.
After 15 seasons with Impact Golf, Tim made his transition to Southwest FL in late 2014. It was during this time that he got a good understanding of how to make an impact on a golfer’s score. Tim credits many great instructors who he spent time with in the area and across the country including Top 100 and Top 50 Golf instructor such as Mike Adams, Mike Bender, Mike Shannon, Jamie Fischer, Tony Ruggiero, Wayne Flint and many others for his ability to bring simpler methods of teaching golf to the golfers of Southwest FL. Tim also continues to further his golf education through PGA and non-PGA teaching seminars to continue to understand and implement better ways to teach and coach the game.
Due to the simplicity and the focus of his teaching and coaching, Tim has helped players of all ability levels to reach their potential and helped many junior golfers to play their way onto Division I golf teams across the county. He has also been fortunate enough to work with and spend time around many PGA Tour and various mini tour players alike. Notably, Tim was nominated for best teachers in Illinois, was a finalist in Golf Digest's list of Top 40 Instructors in America under 40 and PGA South Florida Teacher of the Year.
At Golf Channel Academy Gateway, Tim is very excited to take everything that he has learned over the better part of the last 20 years to simplify and improve not just your golf swing, but your whole golf game!
