As a player, he played in over 200 PGA Tour level events including eight U.S. Opens. His resume as a teaching pro includes stops at some of the most venerable courses in the U.S.: Merion, Westchester and Rockaway Hunt among them. He has been included on Golf Digest’s teaching panel, coached the UCLA Golf Team to a national championship (alumni include Corey Pavin, Steve Pate and Duffy Waldorf) and produced the acclaimed “Swing the Handle” golf book in 1973 and subsequent instructional videos.
