Along with wife Catherine “Erin” Rea, a college stand out and professional golfer, "I opened A Better Club, Inc in Ventura, Calif. My mentor Phil Skovronski a master club designer and tool maker for Palmer, First Flight and Lynx  taught me how to make a golf club by hand, from scratch. shaping the club head, designing proper sole grinds for maximum performance and machining the molds for production".
For the last 18 or so years I have been fortunate enough to work on all of the Professional Tours as a club fitter, tweaking golf clubs for the best players to have played the game.
My designs have always been forward looking, but keeping the amateur in mind.
