Born in Kanas City, Kansas, Anthony was moved to Arizona at a young age, with Fountain Hills being his new home. Golf became an early passion among school and friends, with his first lesson being right here at Desert Canyon Golf Club. Anthony began his golf career in Payson, where he worked for Chaparral Pines Country Club and the Rim Golf Country Club. It was there that he found his ability to educate. Now years later, Anthony is excited to be helping individuals in the very same place it all started for his golf education.

Golf Philosophy – Simplicity, Flexibility, and Purpose

Simplicity – With the amount of information out there, it can be overwhelming to understand what is effective for each player. Focusing on the basic skills and knowledge allows you to create the shots you want to hit.

Flexibility – While strength is necessary, flexibility creates the momentum to strike every shot accurately and powerfully.

Purpose – Above all else, purpose. It is no secret that golf is a mental game where the farthest distance is between your ears. Like life, we hit each shot, intending to do our best while staying optimistic regardless of the outcome.
