Current Employer: Golf Academy of America in Dallas
It didn't take Nathan Grafe long to set the goal of becoming a PGA Professional. He became interested in the program at his very first golf lesson, back in 1995. He went on to study at Golf Academy of America in San Diego, and later became a part of the PGA, but he didn't stop there. Grafe says that he continues to seek certifications to, "put tools into the tool box."
Grafe began teaching in 2004 and worked his way to the title of Head Golf Professional at a private club in California. He is now a Teaching Professional at Golf Academy of America in Dallas where he helps students develop skills, stay motivated and achieve their personal objective.
He advises students to look past their time at Golf Academy of America. "Realize that this is not the only education that you will need," says Grafe. "Lifelong learning, time in the saddle and networking are the keys to advancing your career."
