As a child, Joshua developed a love and passion for golf, a passion that has taken him all over the US to teach and play. After 4 years of varsity golf at North Eugene High School in Eugene, OR and competing in 100’s of tournaments on the Oregon Junior Golf Association Tour, Joshua pursued a career in the Golf Industry. In December of 2009, he earned an Associates Degree in Professional Golf Management from the Professional Golfers Career College in Temecula, CA. Upon graduation, he helped open an indoor golf facility in Wildomar, CA, acting as a teaching professional and retail manager.
In June 2010, Joshua moved to Central Oregon and worked in marketing and member services for Crosswater Club at Sunriver Resort. From there, his career has taken him to Palm Springs, CA, Palm Desert, CA and Denver, CO, where he worked as an Assistant Golf professional and in member services. While traveling, Joshua continued to hone his skills as a player and improved his understanding of the golf swing, something that will never end. In September of 2012, he decided to change his focus to the physical aspect of the golf swing. As a professional, he was always asked “why does my back hurt?” and “why can’t I physically do what you’re asking me to do?” Now with a Bachelors Degree in Exercise and Sport Science and a Level I Golf Fitness Certification through the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI), Joshua has an understanding of how physical limitations affect the golf swing. Joshua says “it feels amazing to be back in the field that I love so much, with the opportunity to positively affect the lives of others through golf”.
Joshua is an avid fly fisherman, tent camper and snowboarder. His other interests include racquetball, running, weight training, and hiking. When he is not out enjoying all the wonderful things Bend has to offer, he is usually at home with his wonderful wife Sarah and two children, Paxton and Adalyn.
