Jon served as an assistant golf professional for five seasons at Hillmoor Golf Club in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. He has also worked as a golf instructor for the Silver Sands Golf Academy-Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, for the past seven years. In 2004, he served as the Director of Instruction, running both the adult and junior programs. He has produced many tournament winners in the junior, high school and college ranks.

Jon played his college golf at Augustana College in Rock Island, IL where he served as the team captain for two seasons and led his team to the NCAA Division III National Championships in 1999.

“I believe it’s important to treat each student as the unique individual they are.”

Everyone’s swing is different, as well as everyone’s specific goals for their own game. Unfortunately, many golf instructors take the path of least resistance for themselves and not their students.

Jon takes another approach. The individual approach.

“I feel it’s important to focus on the basic fundamentals that need to be in place in order to see improvement. From there, I like to help my students understand what’s happening in his/her own swing and what causes the golf ball to do what it is doing. Once they understand this process, we can make great strides in improving their golf game.”
