Golf Academy of America 2016 Top 100 Alumni

There's no doubting that Golf Academy of America graduates go on to do great things. In our 42-year history, more than 11,000 students have completed the program, then worked hard to become leaders in the industry. This year, we decided to honor 100 alumni who have built extraordinary careers in golf.

We called upon fellow graduates, faculty and staff to nominate their peers for the distinction of Golf Academy of America Top 100 Alumni. This year's list of honorees follows. It's our hope that these individuals will motivate a new generation of golf professionals, and in turn grow the sport we love. Read on to be inspired.
