I just finished doing my 19th year of golf schools with 2015 British Open Champion Zach Johnson’s Coach, Mike Bender. Mike and I have done 117 golf schools together! Mike comes up from his academy outside Orlando to my spot here at Semiahmoo. We have a fabulous time working with golfers from all over the Pacific Northwest. We do one, two and sometimes three day schools the latter part of June through the beginning of July. We do our regular school and we also have a “tournament players” school for high school, college and professional golfers.
Mike and I met on the “mini tours” in 1980. Quite sometime ago! We played the PGA Tour together and we are definitely brothers in golf. Mike Bender has had a major influence in my game and my teaching. No question! I learn each year and each time we are together.
Following are some quotes from this year’s schools. I look forward to year 20 in 2017.
