BRANDON EARL-GOLF PROFESSIONAL
BY JEFF LAUGHLIN
Brandon Earl’s life in golf started early. He began teaching in high school before working at Prestonwood Country Club as a PGA Class A professional in 2008. Earl has had plenty of time to notice the flaws in the teaching system, so he started A Better Way to Golf in 2011. “I realized that I wanted to keep teaching from my days in Raleigh, and that the Greensboro area has a niche for golfers who want personalized lessons for a reasonable price.” Earl’s PGA background and attitude toward instruction make lessons less about work and more about understanding the fundamentals of the sport he loves.
“To be a good golfer you only have to do one thing: Have fun. If you are having fun, then you are successful. That’s my goal with each of my students.” He has instructed several division one NCAA golfers and current PGA Tour member Ben Kohles. He currently works anywhere in the Greensboro area — willing to come to students where they feel most comfortable.
“My theory behind A Better Way to Golf is to really make it more about accommodating the student than it is for myself.”
