Brian Powers, PGA comes from a background of sports growing up playing baseball and football very successfully at the high school level, becoming one of the best high school athletes in Southern California in the early 1990's. He was recruited by several major universities for football and baseball out of high school and transitioned into golf after suffering a career ending throwing shoulder injury while playing college baseball thereafter. He would eventually graduate from UCSB with a Business Economics degree in the late 1990's. He turned professional at golf in September, 2003 after passing his one day 36 hole golf playing ability test for the PGA of America on his first attempt, which was the only playing requirement towards becoming a PGA member. Since then he has been teaching golf, having taught 1000s of golfers of all ages and skill levels. He has competed professionally on the Pepsi professional golf tour (here in Southern California mostly between 2007-2008) where he had numerous wins and many high finishes. He has also competed professionally in multiple PGA events throughout his section. His career low round is a 61 at North Ranch Country Club In Thousand Oaks, CA.
