Director of Instruction - Sunriver Resort

Kevin has worked with students of all ages and skill levels striving to improve each golfer while making the environment stress-free and fun. He likes keeping things simple, focusing on fundamentals and working on the individual’s strengths, instead of trying to shape their swing into something that won't work for them.
