Graduate of Golf Academy of America in Dallas
Head Golf Professional
Current Employer: LPGA International in Daytona Beach, Florida
During his time at the Golf Academy of America in Dallas, Brandon Williams paid special attention to his business track. He says, "I think that people forget sometimes that this is a business and in order to make it, you have to treat it like one."
This approach has served the PGA Apprentice well, as he now works at LPGA International in Daytona Beach, Florida. "I can honestly say that every day, I do something at work that I learned at GAA," says Williams. "I can't thank all the staff at GAA in Dallas enough for everything. They are a huge part of why I'm the Head Golf Professional at nationally ranked country club."
Williams advises current students to take their schooling seriously. "It's not meant to be easy, and it's not always going to be fun, but keep your eyes on your end goal," he says. "Trust that the skills you’re going to take with you, along with the relationships that you are going to build, will pave the path to whatever you want to accomplish in this industry."
