Together, we share a passion for fostering life skills and character development through the game. Here's to an outstanding year of swings, putts, and shared moments at First Tee - Greater Tyler!

We are thrilled to introduce Felix, a dynamic individual with an intriguing journey that spans from Munich, Germany, to pursuing higher education in the United States on a golf scholarship. Felix successfully earned his bachelor's degree in psychology from San Jose State University before furthering his education at LeTourneau University, where he proudly obtained a master's degree in psychology and counseling.


Beyond his academic achievements, Felix is an avid enthusiast of outdoor activities, relishing moments of biking, golfing, and contributing to the ranch lifestyle. His passion extends to spending quality time with his wife, who hails from Tyler, Texas. A couple of their favorite local hangouts are Stanley’s BBQ and our beautiful lake Tyler.


Felix draws inspiration from Albert Einstein's wisdom, encapsulated in the quote, "Only a life lived in the service to others is worth living." This philosophy reflects his dedication to making a positive impact and embodying the essence of a purposeful existence.
