Joe began playing golf as an air force dependent in Texas, at Shepard AFB at an early age. He started playing his junior golf at Clark AFB in the Philippines, then moved to Hawaii and continued playing at the many military courses on Oahu. He then moved to San Jose and continued his junior golf in Northern California. He played his college golf at West Valley. Joes' playing accomplishments include tieing the course record at the Hickam Par 3 as a 16 year old, as well as shooting the course record at San Jose Muni in 1977. He also has had a number of top ten finishes in Northern California professional tournaments. Joe has been a golf professional since 1977 and a Class A member of the PGA since 1994.
 
His work experience includes:
San Jose Municipal Golf Course 1977

  Driving Tips:  Tee your ball up with at least half the ball above the top of your driver to gain distance and promote a draw. If you pop up or sky your tee shot, move farther away and set your driver slightly inside the center of the ball. This will promote a flatter swing plane with an inside approach to the ball. The tee should still be in the ground and not broken on a properly struck tee shot. Only tee the ball lower if you are trying to intentionally fade the ball.

Cordova Golf Course 2006
Currently Director of Instruction at Mather Golf Course since 2007
Attended PGA National Teaching Summits:
1992 in San Francisco
1994 in New Orleans
 
Also has attended numerous Northern California teaching seminars, taught by some of the top 100 instructors in the world, Butch Harmon, Hank Haney, Dave Pelz and Gary Wiren and others. Joe has given over 30,000 golf lessons to players of all levels. He has been teaching with video since 1985. He teaches the mechanics of the swing, first starting with the setup position to the foundation points of the swing. After the students learn and understand the basic swing motion, they begin to learn how to play the "game" of golf. Joe starts from the hole and works back (putting-chipping-pitching-half to full shots). A properly fitted set of clubs makes the process easier and achieves better long-term results. The student should not be fitted until a basic swing motion is developed. Whether trying to break 100 or 70, Joe can help you accomplish your goals. He is a certified club fitter with Tour Edge, Titleist, Callaway and Taylor Made. He can fit you with a proper set of clubs at any time. Mather Golf Course is stocked with golf clubs from Tour Edge, Nike, Titleist, Taylor Made, Callaway, Cobra and many other top brands.
