Tim’s Teaching Philosophy

Tim’s Go To Club

“My Titleist SM8 Vokey wedge and Scotty Cameron Laguna putter, are always in my bag. These are my scoring clubs and always have an impact on lowering my playing score.”


Tim’s Golf Hero

“Tiger Woods, is for me, no doubt the greatest of all time. Every time I see a Tiger stat from his years of dominance it blows my mind. “
