About Ralph

I am a full time golf coach whose students have won an astonishing 25 Golf Association of Ontario Provincial Championships in the past 10 years. I coach 5 PGA Tour Players and get to travel to over 20 PGA Tour events a year to support them in various capacities (Kyle Stanley, Adam Hadwin, Nick Taylor, Lucus Glover and David Hearn). I have had several students who have clubhead speeds in excess of 120MPH and work hard to prepare my athletes for the challenges ahead. It is hard for me to put into words how proud I am of those players successes. I have spent over 10,000 hours coaching players at a scratch or below level and am completely committed to helping assist in the development of the next generation of Canadian Players. My students have received scholarships to among others: Harvard, Michigan, Houston, Lamar, NC State etc. and have won numerous NCAA tournaments, PGA Tour of Canada Tournaments etc.

I love golf and always have, I grew up playing a 9 hole golf course in Turkey Point, Ontario and with the help of my parents and my Head Professional I was introduced to Junior Golf events which I had so much fun preparing for and competing in. I was lucky enough to earn a golf scholarship to a Div. 2 school and after winning 5 events there and being ranked as high as #2 in Ontario Amateur year end rankings I transfered to, at the time the 2nd ranked team in Div. 1 which again was alot of fun and a tremendous learning experience.

After a brief and unremarkable professional career I turned my attention towards coaching, my main goal with my coaching has never wavered-to bring the best practices from the best players in the world to young Canadians so that our players can compete at whatever level their desire takes them.

I have had so much training both formally and informally over the past decade and was proud of my time as Assistant Coach for Canada's National Men's team. The opportunity to Coach in the Olympic Games and to spend 8 days in the Athletes Village was an amazing experience for a Coach. To summarize what I learned at the Games: Olympic athletes are very positive, they enjoy training, they look forward to competition, they respect coaches and accept results as a by-product of their training. I am a life-long learner and continue to absorb any information that impacts our performance.

I specialize in preparing young athletes for US College Scholarships and beyond, I have had over 30 athletes receive scholarships and communicates regularly with 100's of US College Coaches. In 2012 alone my students enrolled in: Harvard, Michigan, Houston, Eastern Michigan, Lamar etc.

In my spare time I coach soccer and hockey, like to golf, run and I enjoy any sport that has a paddle and water, I am so proud to be a Canadian.
