UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. – Brian Mogg, consistently ranked among the top golf instructors in the nation, is establishing one of his renowned academies at Chambers Bay in University Place, Wash. The Brian Mogg Performance Center will launch this summer and offer half-day sessions covering all aspects of the game, from full swing to putting to golf course management.
“I see the relationship with Brian Mogg here at Chambers Bay as an important step in growing the game in the Northwest,” said Brent Zepp, Assistant Professional and PGA Instructor at Chambers Bay. “Brian is one of the top golf instructors in the world, and to have him here is an incredible resource that I hope brings great inspiration to many players.”
This is a homecoming for Mogg, who is a native of Tacoma, Wash. He pursued a career on the PGA Tour in the 1980s before settling in Orlando, Fla. and joining the famed Leadbetter Academy in 1993. He opened the Brian Mogg Performance Center in 2002, and his stable of professional clients includes 2009 PGA Champion Y.E. Yang, D.A. Points, Bart Bryant and John Cook, among others. Mogg has been voted one of America’s Top 100 Teachers by the 28,000+ members of the PGA for 8 consecutive years.
The $350 Performance School includes a voucher that is good for one round at Chambers Bay, which just made No. 2 on Golfweek’s list of the 50 best municipal courses in the country. A list of available dates is available online at www.chambersbaygolf.com/moggperformance.
