Ed’s expertise and professionalism has earned him recognition as one of Colorado’s top golf instructors. He has been helping golfers from beginners to professionals for more than 30 years. Ed has spent time watching and learning from some of the best teachers in the country, including Mike Malaska, Jim Flick, Dr. Jim Suttie, Hank Haney, Ben Doyle, Butch Harmon, Bill Harmon, Jim Hardy, Stan Utley, Mike LaBauve, Laird Small, Todd Sones and Dr. Craig Farnsworth.
These experiences have helped Ed to solidify his understanding of the mechanics and dynamics of the golf swing, allowing Ed to tailor his instruction to the individual. Ed earned the PGA Master Professional teaching certification in 1999. This is the highest level of certification available to PGA professional instructors.
My teaching philosophy is centered around impact and improving the student's impact to improve the ball flight. The tours are full of unique swings. All of the best players do things differently but they also do some things the same, they understand impact and how to control their golf ball. My varied study and experience allows me to work with the individual rather than try to put everybody into the same swing. I like to set goals with my students then establish a plan to meet those goals.
“Thank you for the outstanding lesson the other day. I admire your patience, expertise and dedication to continued self learning. ”
“Ed is a very caring, genuine person who clearly knows a great deal about his subject. He treats people with patience and clarity, a sense of humor and the ability to tailor his instruction to a broad range of clients.”
“Because of Ed, I was able to quickly develop an excellent golf game, win numerous top state events, and compete in a number of national events, as well as reach my ultimate goal of playing college golf at the Division I level.”
