       Eric still competes in Illinois PGA events and other various local and national events.   He has competed in 4 Illinois Opens and 9 Illinois PGA Championships.  Eric understands, firsthand, how to translate both block, deliberate, and variable practice into lower scores on the golf course. 

      Eric enjoys teaching all skill levels of golfers. He believes that all students have the potential to improve every aspect of their game.  Eric stresses the basic fundamentals of golf including low point control, centerness of strike, sequencing, ball position and balance.  He caters to individual needs, stressing each golfer's strengths while developing their weaknesses.  He not only desires to grow his lesson base but also has a strong interest in promoting youth development.  Originally from Park Ridge, IL, Eric is excited to be at Mount Prospect Golf Club and is looking forward to a successful 2017 season.
