In 1988, I came to Vienna and worked for 2 years at a driving range.

Since 1990,I have held a teaching-pro position at Schloss Schönborn.

Fully Qualified Teaching Professional
Bachelor in International Economics

I started playing golf at the age of ten under the guidance of my father, who was one of Asia's best amateurs in the 1970s. I followed it passionately and decided to become a professional in 2012. I represented my countries of origin at the Asian and European Championships and was also a full member of the Asian Tour. I have 12 professional victories and am a two-time winner of the Austrian National Open Championship. I began my teaching career in Igls, Tyrol, before moving to Vienna, where GC Schönborn became my new club. I enjoy working with players of all levels and since I've experienced so much through golf, I particularly enjoy sharing all my experiences with everyone I work with.
