Jeff began his teaching career as an assistant for Hank Haney, former coach to Tiger Woods and host of Golf Channel’s, The Haney Project. Working for Haney was an invaluable experience and is the basis of Jeff’s teaching philosophy. As a college student, Jeff was the captain of the Southern Illinois University-Carbondale golf team. Jeff went on to play the Hooters Tour for three years and returned to the Gateway PGA Section in 1996, where he won several tournaments. Jeff has been teaching at Golf Headquarters since 1998. In recent years, Jeff has been named a U.S. Kids Top 50 teacher, 2009 PGA Junior Golf Leader, and has been a Gateway PGA Section finalist for Teacher of the Year numerous times. He is recognized as one of the area’s most sought-after golf instructors.
I set a goal at the age of fourteen to become a professional golfer. Jeff’s dedication to my game helped me hit the milestones to accomplish my goal. Anyone who wants to improve their golf game or aspires to become a professional golfer need only call Jeff and he will help you reach your goals.

In 2010, Jeff opened a state-of-the-art indoor teaching facility at Golf Headquarters that allows him to provide year-round instruction, regardless of weather conditions. The facility, sponsored by TaylorMade, is equipped with V1 Pro Software which allows the golf swing to be viewed simultaneously from two angles, allowing students to make corrections to their swing during analysis. Jeff provides instruction for all levels of golfers from beginner to professional, in both group and individual settings. Jeff’s students have won local and state championships and have gone on to both qualify and play in national championships.
