Rating (average)

I am a third-generation Angelino. I grew up with a passion for playing the game of golf and love sharing my passion through teaching.
I am committed to growing the game of golf at its roots, making the sport more accessible to all people, and finding ways to make golf more fun to play.
I teach players of all skill levels and ages. My lessons include the full swing and the short game, and I give on-course playing lessons daily.

If you want to improve your golf game, please see David. After seeing him for 2 months, I went from shooting in the 100's to a 77 TODAY! He's passionate about golf and he cares about his students. I can not say enough good things about him. Go see David!!!!

"Within 5 minutes, I should be able to teach someone to hit a golf ball into the air," Coach David once told me while he was giving an introductory lesson.

I thought that was a bold statement, considering people with years of experience have trouble getting the ball into the air. The students he was giving the shared lesson to were two older gentlemen who had limited mobility and coordination compared to the average person. "What if you aren't able to?," I asked, "Do you fire yourself and give them their money back?"

"I don't know," Coach David said, "It hasn't happened yet."

Coach David watched them swing at the ball, processed it in his head and gave each of them a few magical, PGA professional tips. Then, I saw a ball fly up, into the air. Coach David turned to me and waved his palm up toward the sky like a magician who just performed a magic trick. Voila!

I have seen Coach David perform his magic on a range of people - young & old, male & female, beginner & intermediate, full mobility and limited mobility (check out his program on Adaptive Golf, it's amazing!) - and he has helped them all. He is especially valuable for those who need gentle nurturing in their golf game, as his calm presence is comforting in a game that can be highly frustrating and intimidating.

That is what I appreciate in Coach David. My son is a competitive junior golfer and has three golf coaches, who all provide a different perspective on the game of golf. Coach David is the golf coach who brings heart to my son's game. With Coach David (who we met through the First Tee of LA junior golf program), my son has had the opportunity to volunteer at the Angel City games and at Westchester golf course helping younger juniors develop a love for the game. Coach David teaches us that golf is more than just the competitive aspect, it is about the love for the game and sharing that love with other people.

Note 1: Coach David has recently become a full-fledged PGA professional, so book him while his rates are still affordable and while he has time slots available!

Note 2: Coach David accepts golf club donations and provides the equipment for his students in need, so bring your unwanted clubs to Coach David and make them useful again.
