Anthony Sable, PGA Instructor - Golf Academy of America in San Diego
Oct 22, 2012
"I had no real in-roads to the game of golf," military veteran Anthony Sable likes to tell his students. "No one in my family played golf. We did not live near a golf course, nor were we well–off enough to buy equipment, lessons or green fees. Yet here I am: a PGA golf professional working in Southern California."
While Mr. Sable grew up in the Wisconsin north woods hunting, fishing and working on a dairy farm, he now enjoys running the tournament program, teaching Rules of Golf, and training students on the K–Vest system for Golf Academy of America in San Diego.
But what happened in between?
After several successful seasons playing on his high school football team, Mr. Sable attended and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. He then served in the U.S. Army as a flight operations specialist and the U.S. Coast Guard as a navigator aboard a C-130 aircraft.
Looking to begin a second career, Mr. Sable enrolled in the Golf Academy of America in San Diego where he graduated with honors in 1998. He immediately began working as an Assistant Golf Professional in Oregon, then worked in California, Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin. He was awarded PGA membership in 2005.
Always looking for more experience in the golf Industry, Mr. Sable began working at his alma mater in 2006.
"The Golf Academy of America really worked for me," he says. "I can't imagine where I would be if not for the education I received here."
