A western North Carolina native, Kevin brings over 35 years of tournament playing experience to Precision Golf School. Winning his first junior tournament at 11 years old and becoming a scratch golfer by age 13 Kevin excelled as a top level junior player winning multiple Jr golf events which included winning 11 out 13 spring tournaments during his senior year in high school. After high school Kevin moved on to play NCAA Division 1 golf at East Carolina University as a business management major. Following a successful collegiate career he made the jump to professional golf where Kevin moved to central Florida and competed successfully on 9 different professional golf tours around the country for the next 4 ½ years. After accumulating multiple top 5 finishes including 2 wins as a professional on multiple mini-tours, Kevin decided to leave the professional game and enter the restaurant and hospitality industry as a business owner which he pursued for the next 21 years.
During that time as a business owner, Kevin regained his amateur status with the USGA and continued his pursuit of excellence in ball striking, short game and putting while working with some of the top instructors in the country including Robert Linville. While working with Robert, Kevin returned to tournament play where he added 18 more tournament wins including 8 Club Championships at two different Clubs, multiple top level amateur and mid-amateur tournament wins as well as two course records and 5 tournament rounds of 64 or better. Keeping Robert as his swing coach & golf mentor over the next 16 years, Kevin used this time away from professional golf to research and refine his understanding of not only the motion of the golf swing, but also his playing strategy and approach to the game of golf. As a husband of 18 years, a father of 3 children, former professional golfer and business owner, Kevin brings a unique set of life experiences and skills to the Precision Instruction family.
Kevin’s goals as an instructor are to use a lifetime of experience, research and knowledge to help every student get the very most out of their own golf skills and abilities. Kevin feels that there is no perfect swing and that every single player who is willing to put forth the effort is capable of, “Finding their best golf swing and shooting the lowest scores of their life!” Kevin is excited for the opportunity to work with golfers of all ages and skill levels.
