Billy grew up just outside the city of Philadelphia in Devon Pennsylvania. He started playing the game of golf at the age of 12. Billy quickly developed a passion for the game and by the age of 15 he was shooting under par and winning local junior tournaments. Billy had several offers to play division I collegiate golf and chose Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. He went on to multiple wins and was recently inducted into the Hawks athletic Hall of Fame. After graduating college Billy turned professional and played full time on the mini tours in Florida for 6 years. He won several times and then decided to join the PGA of America and become a club professional. He earned his PGA Membership in 2016 and has been a top ranked professional in Philadelphia since then along with being a well-respected instructor.
Billy currently teaches several division I players, top ranked high school players, and other PGA professionals. Being a competitor himself many students are attracted to Billy as an instructor not just because of this knowledge of the swing but also his advice of how to succeed as a competitor at the highest level. Billy also has a passion for helping the game of golf grow by teaching beginner golfers. He takes pride on enlightening people interested in taking up the game of golf that etiquette and pace of play define a golfer rather than the score they shoot. A great score is a bonus, and everyone is capable of adding golf to their life as a hobby or social scene.
Billy currently spends the winter months teaching for the Leadbetter Academy at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida and spends the summer months teaching at The ACE Club in Lafayette Hill, PA. He has been part of the Leadbetter Academy for the past 5 years and been at The ACE Club the past 6 years. He is also a part of the First Tee of Philadelphia as a weekly coach as well as overseeing the kid’s overall development from club fitting to understanding the nine core values. After discovering his passion for teaching six years ago Billy now finds himself as one of the busiest instructors in Philadelphia and south Florida.
