"As our day-to-day work involves giving our students the most advanced golf instructions available today, we are very proud when our own instructors make news in the industry," says Brad Turner, director of the SDGA Orlando Campus.

The U.S. Open, first played in October 1895, is today considered one of the most difficult tournaments in the world. Since its formation in 1894, the United States Golf Association (USGA) has served as the national governing body of golf for the United States and Mexico. USGA is a non-profit organization run by golfers and they sponsor 13 national championships each year. For more information on USGA, please visit http://www.usga.org .
