Craig's Bio

Since his junior golfing days, Craig has had a passion for the game of golf which influenced his decision to enter the Professional Golf Management program at Methodist University.  In 2007 Craig completed a Bachelor’s degree; shortly there after he earned Class A status as a member of the PGA of America. Over the past several years Craig has developed a teaching style which invites students of all skill levels to quickly improve their enjoyment from the game of golf.  He understands that having fun, and creating a relaxed atmosphere is vital to building the special teacher/student relationship that is most conducive to game improvement…  With a relationship of trust comes clear communication between teacher/student.

Craig’s understanding of the golf swing allows him to communicate his message in the simplest form for golfers of all levels.  As the Candia Woods Golf School Director & PGA Head Golf Professional, Craig looks forward to inviting more people to the game and introducing more participants to Candia Woods Golf School programs.

Have you booked your club fitting appointment yet?  

In reaching your full potential, lessons may not be enough.  A proper club fitting, from a PGA Professional, will align you the correct equipment and take your game to the next level.

What are the important factors in club fitting?

Simply Put: length, lie, loft, shaft flex, and grip size. 

Why are those important to you?

Playing with the correct shaft creates your maximum club head speed while at the same time allows you maintain your tempo and balance.

A correct length and lie angle, allows you to keep the ball heading straight toward your target.

Proper grip size allows your hands to function properly and generates better club control.

Who should fit you?  

Your PGA Professional should be fitting you for clubs. They are highly trained to fit every golfer with the proper equipment and knowledge.

With the right equipment and instruction, we can improve your game and help you in achieving your golf goals. Let’s get better one swing at a time!
