Dr. Rich is a life-long student of Eastern philosophies and has utilized these practices in his professional career, personal life, and athletic undertakings which include not only golf, but also numerous marathons and triathlons, including an Ironman event. Dr. Rich has a deep respect for and abiding interest in golf’s history, course architecture, and strategic approaches to the game.  

Dr. Rich believes that we play golf to be better people, not just better golfers.  

Golf is riddled with paradox.  One recent PGA event winner, when asked about what contributed to his victory, reflected “I stopped caring about where the ball was going.”  Dr Rich Golf™ is, in part,  a journey into the heart of paradox.  Golf is one of our great pleasures (and often one of our great frustrations).  Dr Rich Golf™ can help open new and more satisfying dimensions of the game, and of yourself.
