Duane is a graduate of Ursinus College where he earned a degree in Politics, History, & English.
In 2003, Duane turned his love of the game of golf into his 2nd career.
For the past 18 years, Duane has been a Teaching Professional for students of all ages and abilities. He has also served as first assistant at Twining Valley Golf Club, Penn Oaks Golf Club, and Head Professional at LuLu Country Club. In his 7th year here at Honeybrook Golf Club, Duane is both Director of Golf and our PGA Teaching Professional.
With all of his experience, Duane perceives teaching as one of the most important aspects of being a PGA Professional, and dedicates all of his time to creating, implementing, and instructing Private Lessons, Junior Camps & Clinics, Men & Women's Golf Clinics, and Corporate Outings.
By creating a relaxing atmosphere while focusing on the specific needs of students of all ages and abilities, Duane has found success as a Teaching Professional with nearly 16,000 hours of instruction to date. His philosophy is very simple: Find a repeatable swing for the student; help that student manage his or her own game within their abilities, goals and expectations. But most of all, KEEP IT FUN!
Duane believes that by fostering an atmosphere of professionalism and comfort, each student will in turn trust and then practice what they learn.
