COACH PATRICK IN HIS OWN WORDS: I enjoy teaching kids and am a U.S. Kids Certified coach who has worked with the First Tee of greater Seattle for more than 5 years. I have experience leading and growing junior golf programs at Glendale Country Club, White Horse Golf Club and most recently as the Director of Instruction at Puetz Golf. I was born and raised here in Snohomish, WA and am most passionate about growing the game of golf through the kids in the community I learned to play.
I grew up with great coaches which led me to want to pursue my own career in helping others enjoy a sport. Through golf I teach life skills such as honesty, respect, confidence and much more. I am a Class A PGA Golf Professional and have taught 1,000's of lessons for people of all ages, skill levels, gender and race. I like to say, "we are a team and in this together." as a coach I understand we must work together towards a goal in a comfortable environment.
I graduated from University of Idaho in 2010 with a degree in Professional Golf Management and Business Marketing. I have accomplished my dreams of opening my own pro shop here at Snohomish Valley Golf Shop and have goals of starting my own family, traveling and building a Junior Golf Academy here in Snohomish, WA!
