Understanding Darren
  •  When was the first time you picked up a club? I tried a couple of times early in high school but started to play seriously when I was 15 years old. It didn’t take long before I was really hooked and wanted to make golf my career path.
  • Who is your golf idol? I enjoy watching tournament golf whether it is on TV or attending tournaments but as a professional coach my idols are now in the coaching field. I have learned a lot by attending conferences and listening to great coaches like Michael Hebron, Stan Utley, Steve Bann and Dale Lynch; their words and ideas along with my own experiences have shaped me into the coach I am today.
  • Favorite golfing memory? Having played the game for over 25 years I have a lot of good memories from playing the game, winning my home club championship, shooting my best round of 63, winning tournaments as a professional but to be honest the best memories come from seeing the people I help with their game to have their moment of understanding and change, those moments are the best and most rewarding.
  • What advice would you give to someone considering starting to play golf? Get professional instruction to start, learn the basics to build off and don’t be afraid of the golf course because that is where we truly learn and understand; then come back to your professional to have your questions answered and your skills refined.
