He does lessons during the winter at Heatherwoode and sends his students to GAC fitness to work with a TPI instructor. He does video analysis with all his private lessons to help show the student what's needed to be worked on and then send the lessons to them. Brad is always looking for new ways to help his students with training aids, club fitting, mental work or physical training. He is the only pro in the Dayton area to teach with the high tech teaching tool the K-Vest. With over 25 years as a Golf Professional and a College Coach he understands all types of swings. In the spring of 2012 Brad went internationally giving hundreds of lessons each month by the internet and has made it affordable for anyone to learn the game.

My journey in golf has been a long one. When I think about the totality of my experiences, they really really do spread far and wide. I've worked in just about every job in the club/course world, from cart boy to assistant professional. Whether it was teaching a beginners clinic, or managing a small staff, the course management world always presented new opportunities to learn about the golf industry. I've also worked for one of the largest junior golf tournament organizations in the world as a tournament director and director of tour development and marketing. Being privy to the inner workings and personalities of the games top junior talent was something I took great joy in. In my own world, my golf game has developed into one I feel could eventually take me to the professional ranks. As a teenager I could barely break 100. Over the last 20 years I've worked hard, taken my lumps, studied the great players and teachers of the game, and currently have a handicap of 0.6. I look forward to sharing my experiences and hopefully bettering your game, your understanding of the golf world, or just providing you with some entertainment.

Born in Alabama, raised in Illinois. Graduated and received my teaching certificate from the Golf Academy of America in 2004 and I've been teaching ever since. I've given almost 1,500 lessons now and i'm still learning something new everyday. If I had to sum up my teaching philosophy in one word it would be technology. I use a lot of video analysis, Trackman data and negative feedback devices/drills to get my students making the correct moves as quick as humanly possible. I've worked with players ranging from complete beginners all the way up to the mini-tour and elite collegiate player. A lot of what I teach (especially short-game) was heavily influenced by my teacher and 5-time PGA Tour winner Buddy Allin.
