During Michael’s 32 year career here at Torrey Pines he has given golf instruction from beginners, collegiate players, accomplished amateurs to high profile professional athletes, celebrities and tour professionals. He has given tens of thousands of lessons with the committed goal to assist all levels, genders and ages of golfers to build, grow, improve and most notably, enjoy their game of golf. While never ceasing to learn, he has had the opportunity to work alongside some of the greatest teachers and players in the game. During his professional career he has been successful in all facets of instruction as a Staff Instructor to the Director of Instruction. He was nominated for the 2016 Player Development Award, 2017 & 2018 Teacher Of The Year Award and is a proud recipient of both the 2018 Horton Smith Award and the 2020 Education Award from the San Diego Chapter of the PGA.

Michael’s swing philosophy is that there is no one perfect swing for every golfer. But every golfer has their best swing. He believes as a PGA teaching professional it’s his duty to recognize ability, body mobility and temperament then communicate proper fundamentals and correct body motion based on those ranges. His knowledge of the golf swing and understanding of the game helps students gain more understanding, achieve straighter and farther ball flight with less effort and fewer strokes, resulting in lower scores and added enjoyment in their game of golf.
