Hailing from Westchester, New York, Tom has a long line of golf ancestry dating back to his uncle, also Tom Creavy, who was victorious at the 1931 PGA Championship defeating greats like Gene Sarazen in the match-play format. The final match was refereed by Bobby Jones.

Tom was introduced to the game at an early age and played in the US Junior Amateur, the US Amateur, and several other events on the national level. After graduating from Stetson University in May of 1992, with a degree in Finance, Tom continued his pursuit of a career in the golf industry. Tom was the Player of the Year in the Trans-America Athletic Conference in 1992 and in 1993 defeated Tiger Woods 3 & 2 en route to a victory in the Monroe Invitational Championship in Rochester, NY.

After working with the Golf Digest instructional schools on Cape Cod, Tom decided to completely turn his attention to golf instruction in 1996. Through extensive training, Tom became a certified instructor at the David Leadbetter Academy. Tom worked as Leadbetter’s first assistant for over four years. His experience included working with tour players such as Nick Faldo, Nick Price, and Ernie Els.

In September of 2000, Tom began conducting his own golf schools, and corporate outings. Upon leaving the Leadbetter Academy, Tom began working as Se Ri Pak’s full time coach. Since working together, Se Ri has won 18 LPGA events, including three LPGA major championships. Se Ri was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in November 2007. Tom also spent several years coaching Amy Yang, LPGA Superstar, as well Beatriz Recari. Amy has finished in the Top 5 in various Majors in the last 2 years. Several other PGA and LPGA Tour winners, as well as some of the nation’s top collegiate and amateur players, seek Tom’s advice.

As the Director of Instruction at Metrowest Golf Club, Tom’s programs include lessons on the full swing, short game, and consultation on golf course management. Tom has been highly ranked by Golf Digest and Golf Magazine. He enjoys instructing players of all abilities.

Tom has been a resident of Orlando since graduating from Stetson University. He is very involved with the Orlando community and is married to his wife, former Leigh Anne Hardin, a Duke University All-American.
