  I first fell in love with the game of golf at age 8 when my dad took me and my brothers to Clifton Hollow Golf Course. Soon after, I was endlessly hitting golf balls into our neighbor’s corn fields and putting under flood lights at Clifton. The passion for golf led me to my first job in the industry on the grounds crew at Clifton Hollow, and I never looked back.  My playing career started in River Falls, WI with numerous accomplishments that extended into college at UW Parkside, where I obtained a Marketing Degree.  After college, I spent my winters working in Scottsdale, AZ at McCormick Ranch Golf Club and working summers at Hillcrest Golf Club of St. Paul.  After a number of years as an Assistant and Teaching Professional at Hillcrest, I was back in the area Full-time when I became the Head Golf Professional at Hillcrest in 2005.  After a long tenure at Hillcrest of 22 years, I am truly honored to now be at Stillwater CC.  Its long history and vibrant membership are just a few things that attracted me to the club.  During my time in golf, I have had the pleasure of learning the golf swing under some great professionals, most notably Dave Rasmussen. During my downtime, I love spending time watching the NBA, reading books, and relaxing with my wife Andrea and son Hogan.

Growing up in Coon Rapids, MN, I spent most of my childhood years playing hockey and baseball, among other sports.  Though I would spend the occasional Summer weekend at the family cabin in Hayward, WI where golf with my Grandpa was a frequent family activity, it wasn’t until 7th grade that I decided to take the game of golf serious.  Shortly after, I discovered a passion that I had never felt before for a sport; spending many late nights on the practice range at the local public course working to improve my skills.  After competing at the Varsity level for 4-years at Coon Rapids High School, my golf journey took me to Clarke University in Dubuque,IA, where I played collegiate golf for two years before transferring to the University of Wisconsin-Stout.  It was at this moment when I made the decision to turn my passion for the game into a career.  Instead of continuing to playing collegiately, I made the decision to start PGA school where I am currently working towards my Class A PGA License.  I have also been fortunate to participate in a few different internships during the Summer months; Sand Valley Golf Resort in Nekoosa, WI, and Pleasant View Golf Course in Middleton, WI.  I am very excited about the opportunity to begin my professional career at Stillwater CC, and I look forward to working with and getting to know the membership

Grew up in Hastings, Minnesota.  I learned the game of golf playing with my two brothers Mike and Joe and my Father Chris playing at Bellwood Oaks Golf Course.  Played 4 years on Hastings Golf Team with 3 trips to the State Tournament, 2 section titles, named to 2 All State Teams and was one of eight finalists for 2018 Mr. Minnesota Golf award.  Worked the last two seasons at StoneRidge Golf Club I bring some experience but I’m most excited about the opportunity to learn more about the industry at Stillwater Country Club.
