Sharon Woods Golf Course
Brian Fennen, a PGA member, grew up and played locally. He graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with a degreein PGA Golf Management and BA in Marketing. While in the program, Brian gained valuable teaching and business experiences through various high profile internships throughout the country. In 2017 he won the Southern Ohio PGA Development Award.
Brian believes without the mind, the body will never be able to hit a truly pure golf shot, no matter the club technology. Along with instilling a positive mindset, he believes it is his job as a golf professional to work as an artist to create and sculpt his students' swings into their own individual style. He believes fundamentals are important building blocks, but there is neither a cookie cutter swing nor teaching method for every golfer. Brian works in a low pressure, yet organized fashion designed to help a student achieve his or her goals.
Flightscope Elite 2 and HUDL software are available for all lessons (if needed) at no additional cost.
Every lesson is a new challenge. I love working together with a student as a TEAM to accomplish his or her goals.

What types of students have you worked with?
Any and all. I have worked with complete beginners to + handicappers!
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Before investing in lesson packages, make sure the PGA Golf Professional (no some Joe off the streets) matches your style of learning and goals. Everyone learns different, and without buy in from both parties, optimal results will not be achieved. Golf lessons are not dicatorships, they should be teamwork between the golf professional and student. Find a coach that teaches people the game of golf, not the game of golf to people!
Its so important, I will repeat it again, Make sure your instructor does not teach golf. Your instructor should teach PEOPLE how to play better golf. If you can't work as a team with your instructor, you are wasting your time and hard earned money.
