Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, Jud has spent the last seven years in the Hilton Head area. Jud received a degree in Hospitality Management from the University of South Carolina Beaufort where he played the remaining three years of his eligibility on their golf team. In his final year at USCB, he received All-American Honors for his play on the golf team as a Captain. From there he took his talents to the professional level, playing on various mini-tours for the next three years. Jud collected 4 Wins, 13 Top 5 finishes, and 2017 Top 10 Money List on the Carolina Mountain Tour and holds 3 course records. Competing throughout the US and Canada, Jud compiled a scoring average of 70.7. Traveling and competing throughout North America has provided Jud with a unique ability to understand and overcome both on and off course challenges.
Jud could not be more excited to arrive at KOHR Golf this spring. Jud is looking forward to bringing his experience and excitement for the game to the Boston area. Jud believes in the cliché that “golf is a game of six inches” and prides himself on being able to teach tactical intelligence and become efficient at course management. Since 2015, he has worked with Jason Baile PGA at Belfair Golf Club (Top 100 golf instructors in the U.S.; Hilton Head Island PGA Teacher of the Year) learning how to manage his own golf game. In a teaching capacity, Jud has worked with players of all ages and handicaps—ranging from young children, junior development, to Wounded Warriors with swing limitations but positive attitudes to make up for it! In addition, he has spent a great deal of time working with single digit players, professionals, and college athletes.
Jud will be joining our coaching staff this spring. He will be working with both our Academy students as well as other clients. Jud is very excited to move to the Boston area and cannot wait to get to work at KOHR Golf.
