My Athletic Credentials
What makes Level 3 Sports a unique sports psychology consultancy is my experiences in athletics, business, and academics. I currently play competitive golf and have taught the game for about 30 years. From 1989 through 1996, I competed professionally in numerous Florida Tour events. It was during this period when I began teaching golf. I enjoyed playing in the pro-ams and taught both amateurs as well as professional players in the US and Europe. Around 1996, I turned my attention completely towards golf instruction. I utilized various golf training aids to help players feel different positioning and moves in the golf swing. I decided to incorporate them into my teaching, which led to the formation of my first Internet company, ShotSavers Golf, Inc. During my tenure at ShotSavers Golf, Inc., I invented and manufactured 15 golf training products and operated affiliate companies all over the world. I also own a US Patent and published a golf instruction book. If you are a competitive athlete, I can RELATE to you.
One of my goals in returning to college was to further my understanding of how successful athletes think. Because I already had a fundamental understanding of the mechanics of the golf swing, I wanted to be able to offer trained and expert analysis on the mental aspects of golf as well. The same mental processes used by successful professional golfers are present in virtually every competitive sport. Finally, to further my understanding of international business and sports marketing, I studied business as an MBA Student at Auburn University.
My business past coupled with my playing and teaching experience gives me a unique skill set that could be very valuable to the athlete looking for a consultant who can relate to the challenges of being a player.
