I have received lots of “congratulations” following the Orioles win last night to clinch the American League East.

Congratulations to Alex Smalley who has verbally committed to Duke University! Recently, Alex (ranked #6 in NC) fired an 11-under 64-69 for 2nd place at Joe Cheves and will be playing in the prestigious Bobby Chapman Invitational in Spartanburg, SC on Sept 19-21.
“I couldn’t be more proud of Alex. He did everything I asked of him, worked his tail off to improve his mental game, and now he has achieved his goal. In college he will be playing ACC golf in front of family and friends for one of the best programs in the country!“
I am pleased to announce the signing of Brad Miller, a pro who plays PGA Tour Canada! I recently worked with Brad in Towson, Maryland and he is now back in Canada for the final 4 events of the season. I will loop back with Brad when he is in Pinehurst, NC preparing for Qualifying School.
Brad fired a 64 last season to qualify for a web.com tour event and together we will take his mental game and overall game to the next level!
I am pleased to announce that Victoria Dozier will play at NC State in 2016! She is a part of a small percentage of players to commit at the end of her sophomore year. Victoria plays for Triangle Volleyball Club and is a rising junior at Cardinal Gibbons HS.
Alex is 1 of 4 Carolinians to advance to the US Junior Amateur Championship in Houston! Alex fired a 68-70 at the Sectional Qualifier at Prestonwood CC in Cary to earn a spot in the field. Recently, Alex won the NC Junior Championship so he is on major roll!
I am looking forward to working with Hannah Hicklen (Towson, MD) this summer. Hannah plays midﬁeld and defense for the University of Cincinnati Women’s Lacrosse Team. She is excited to be receiving elite mental conditioning to get her ready for the Fall and the 2015 season in the American Athletic Conference.
