Mark has been involved in the game of golf for 20 years. He has been a PGA of Canada member for 9, and has 7 years of award winning, academy experience. Insight into Mark’s passion and love for golf may be seen through his favourite quote from the great, late Arnold Palmer;
“Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening – and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.”
Mark has been a strong athlete and competitor his entire life in many disciplines of sport and games. He demonstrates a well-rounded knowledge of both art and science and how they blend together in golf. The Stratford native is a self-taught player who believes in being a student for life; he practices this in coaching, music, other sports, and ambidexterity.
Mark believes in coaching strong fundamental knowledge and techniques, combined with perspective, to produce long term growth and awareness. He has headed junior programs under 2 award winning academies, and specializes in mentoring youth golfers to reach their full potential. Mark knows what it takes to compete at a high level, he captured a tournament victory his first year as a professional, and as a youth, an OCAA Provincial silver medal for men’s doubles badminton.
He is excited to be partnered with TOUR Performance Golf Academy at Piper’s Heath for outdoor training.
He truly enjoys his life’s work and loves to share his passion with others.
