Mike recently joined the Walker Supply Inc. team and brings many years of experience working in the golf industry. He grew up in Northeast PA, minutes from Blue Ridge Trail GC. At a young age, golf became Mike’s passion, and, eventually, his career. Blue Ridge Trail GC provided him the opportunity to begin the game of golf at a young age, and eventually he began working there at just 16 years old. He later attended Delaware Valley University, where he was a member of the golf team and graduated with a B.S. in Agronomy in 2011. While at Del Val, he completed two internships, one at his home course of Blue Ridge Trail GC and the second at Merion Golf Club, which led to a full-time position. Mike worked at Merion for seven years, with the final three as a Course Superintendent. In 2013, he even had the opportunity to assist with the 2013 U.S. Open. Mike then shifted into the golf renovation business, working for Total Turf Golf Services where he supervised all aspects of golf course construction.

This year, Mike decided he wanted to use his technical expertise to help professionals in the field tackle any variety of agronomic challenge. So when the opportunity to join the WSI Team came to light, Mike knew it would be a great fit for the next chapter in his career. “I’m really looking forward to consulting with customers one-on-one and developing individual plans with each that will ensure agronomic success,” he said. “I’m hopeful that our work together will not only achieve short-term milestones, but grow into lifelong partnerships.”

When Mike is not working, he enjoys outdoor activities, especially golf. He maintains a 3 handicap and enjoys golfing with his father and competing in events. He is married to his beautiful wife, Alex, in which they share the love of the Philadelphia Eagles and their dog Macy.
