Mark is an master clubfitter with Henry Griffitts , a Callaway Golf Maverick member, and can assist with honest and informed Club Assessment and fitting. Mark is a strong advocate on the use of K VEST, the industry's only human motion learning system. The all-in- one wireless system instantaneously measures players' power signatures and 3D data. The system assesses player characteristics and generates insightful reports and automatically flows those
reports into a powerful coaching and training program builder.

Coaching Philosophy:
"I approach golf education from the perspective of first coaching individuals on how to "Play The Game" and then sharing some "Technique" that is needed in order to play better. I have found
that by helping players/juniors and adults alike increase their commitment to the process of learning and by decreasing their focus to swing technique and outcome, players have more fun,
and perform better. I believe at a basic level that golf is an easy game and, regardless of skill level, golf can be equally rewarding to all players.. Without question it's mental and physical requirements can be developed by anyone. I also believe that playing golf, or doing anything for that matter, to the "best" of our individual ability takes dedication, practice and support."
