My passion is golf! I enjoy helping my students improve their games almost as much as I enjoy playing golf myself. Whether it be introducing a beginner to the thrill of a purely-struck shot, watching active players progress and improve their games or helping a competitive player prepare for their next competition, the most important role that I have as your coach is to clearly lay out the steps that are required to take your game to the next level. Golf is not a 'one size fits all' sport. Every golfers physical make-up is different and as a result, so are their golf swings. By ensuring that you fully understand how your golf swing works, your path to a more successful game becomes much clearer.
Swing PhilosophyEveryone, regardless of size, age or physical ability, is capable of developing a repetitive golf swing. After mastering the fundamentals of grip, posture and alignment, students will learn about the key relationship between arm swing and body rotation. As a certified TPI Instructor I believe golfers will benefit the most from a healthy and efficient body. I do not believe in one way to swing a club, rather in an infinite number of swing styles. But, I do believe there is one efficient way for every player to swing and it is based on what the player can physically do.

My teaching philosophy has been developed from my many different experiences with the game of golf and within the golf industry. Some of those experiences are having a Father who maintained a scratch-level handicap for 30+ years, to competing on the PGA Latino American Tour, competing in various Professional Tournaments, and my experience as Head & Assistant Professional.
I use my experiences and core philosophies to help the player create a strategy that helps achieve their greatest personal results. No matter the physical or mental capabilities everyone can experience this great game together.
Swing PhilosophyThe goal of golf is to get the ball in the hole, pain free. There is no right way to get the job done, and everyone has their own unique way of accomplishing that objective. It is my job to help you understand how to maximize your power, accuracy, and mentally strength in the most efficient way. The root of all great players is their fundamentals. Having a good grip, posture, and alignment are key in using your body to create the most efficient swing possible.
Will Singletary - Assistant Golf Professional
I started playing golf when I was old enough to hold a golf club. I’ve always had an interest in sports and been involved in both football and basketball. I played golf at Hanahan High School in Hanahan, SC where our team was invited to participate in 3 state championships. For three consecutive years, I was able to place 2nd (individually) in the region 3-A state championship tournament. During this time, I received recognition for being the first player in Hanahan history to receive athletic recognition (varsity letter) for 6 years in golf. Receiving this recognition as a 7th grader is an accomplishment rarely attained by students at this age.
My foundation in golf started with my father and grandfather, however, my skills were developed through my participation in The First Tee Program. This program allowed me to participate in The PGA Championship in 2012 at The Ocean Course. I was selected to be a Standards Bearer. In addition, I was asked to participate in the caddy program at the Daniel Island Club. My accomplishments in golf have allowed me to participate some of these elite events in the golf industry.
I began my career in golf when I was 18 years old. While learning the business of the golf industry, I also earned my Associates Degree. I have completed the minimum score required by the PGA on the Player Ability Test, and I plan to continue my education in order to become a PGA professional.
I have a passion for this sport and take great joy in spreading my love for this game. I enjoy helping others develop their skills and share a love of the game.
