About Justin

Where to start…

I began playing golf when I was 8 years old. I immediately fell in love with the game and joined several golf leagues during the summer.

From there, I played both high school and college golf and decided that golf was what I wanted to do with my career. I gravitated towards the teaching route after graduating from Saginaw Valley State in 2014.

I currently work for three city courses located in Livonia, Michigan. There I am the Director of Instruction where I spend my day creating lesson plans and giving both group and individual golf lessons.  This past year I have:

  • Gave over 400 individual golf lessons
  • Became a member of the PGA
  • Managed a team of instructors to teach over 200 juniors during the summer season
  • Created and implemented both junior golf camps and tournaments
  • Developed and promoted a beginning golf school to teach new golfers all about the game.
  • And perhaps most importantly, I created Golfing Tips For Beginners to spread golf info to the world!

This year I hope to add even more programs at my golf courses to help keep influencing and growing the game of golf.

From a playing standpoint, I also have some goals that I have accomplished and some that I still would like to accomplish:

  • Lowest Round-  65 for 18-holes
  • Average Drive- 298 (so close to 300…)
  • Current handicap 2.3
  • Longest putt – over 100 feet at the Gails Golf Resort in Oscoda, MI
  • I still have not gotten a hole in one but I still believe!
  •  Play Pebble Beach
  • Win a Golf Tournament
  • Play Golf in Europe

I hope you enjoy the site and feel free to look around to see if you find anything interesting!
