Before coming back to California, Games had been touring throughout the U.S. and Britain, playing in professional tournaments including Nationwide Tour events; PGA Tour, U.S. and British Open qualifying events; SCPGA events and on mini tours.

“I’m happy to be back where it all started for me,” Games said. “I grew up playing golf in the Long Beach area, where junior programs were heavily supported by the golf community. I have a real fondness for this area, and hope to be able to give back through my teaching and coaching.”

Games started playing at the Compton Par-3 Golf Course at the age of 6. He won his first tournament when he was 9 years old at Little Rec and went to the finals of the Long Beach City Match Play at Big Rec when he was 13 years old.

Games believes that his successful record as a competitor brings a unique learning experience to his students. “I think my passion for the game, and the wide range of experiences I’ve had as a competing professional, will help my students have an appreciation for the game,” Games continues. “Plus, I believe a great way for golfers to improve their skills is to learn from a skilled player.”In addition to teaching at Rec Park, Games intends to play a schedule of tournaments in 2012, and compete in Champions Tour Qualifying School in the Fall of 2012.
