Sean joined the TCC staff in March of 2005. Before coming to TCC he spent three years at The Reserve Vineyards and Golf Club as the Head Golf Professional. Prior to The Reserve, Sean was the First Assistant Golf Professional at Columbia Edgewater Country Club. Early work experience include stints in Northern Idaho, Wisconsin, Palm Springs and Phoenix. His varied and extensive work history solidifies his strong knowledge of each facet within the industry. Sean is an active player, teacher and promoter of the game of golf; although, his passion is providing a matchless level of customer service. Sean is also a member of the Oregon PGA Board of Directors and serves on the Board of Directors with the PNW PGA Section. Sean is actively involved in his chapter and section of the PGA of America. Sean grew up in the Tualatin area and attended Tigard High School where he played varsity soccer and baseball.

In his rare free time, Sean can be found spending time with his wife April, his three kids Hayden, Sofia and Quinn, and his Yorkie named Scout.

Jim Mapother
Director of Player Development
2016 Oregon Chapter PGA Teacher of the Year

As a golf instructor, I have found that the most important part of instruction is ball flight. I have had the opportunity of working with some of the greatest teachers in this great game. Professionals like Randy Henry, Tom Patri Top 100 Golf Digest instructor, Tom Shea a mental game expert, Kathy Jensen PGA National Teacher of the Year in 2014, Charlie Cook another Top 100 instructor as well as countless PGA and LPGA professionals who have developed their expertise in teaching to the highest level. What I have learned is that there is more to influencing the flight of the ball than just swing theory. The ball flight is influenced by three sources, swing theory, your physical body and your club design, and not one of these sources is more important than the other.
