About The Pro

Brian F. Powers, PGA comes from a background of sports growing up playing football, baseball and basketball with most of his neighboring friends and in different leagues until high school where he would just focus on baseball and football.  He would become one of the best high school athletes in Southern California in the early 90’s as he excelled as a middle linebacker in football (having been recruited heavily by many major universities) and as a baseball player (having many professional baseball teams scout him very heavily).  He would graduate high school 7th in his class academically and win male athlete of the year honors his senior year.  However, his honors went far beyond that! 

Unfortunately Brian would face some throwing shoulder injury hardships later that would rob him of a professional baseball career.  It was then though that he was introduced to golf by a friend.  He never thought he’d do anything with golf but got pretty good pretty fast, breaking 80 within his first year of playing.  Around that same time he would go on to get his Bachelors Degree in Business Economics from UCSB, just focusing on his studies and his golf game.  He would take a couple of meaningless jobs after college until one day a golf buddy convinced him (in 2003) to take his 36 hole golf playing ability test to become a PGA member.  So, he did and passed on his first attempt.  Proof in the putting that he had a pro swing and that’s when he got into the golf business.  He has been teaching the game ever since.  Brian would go on to secure his PGA membership years later.  He has competed professionally on the Pepsi Tour mostly between 2007 and 2008 (with many wins and high finishes) and multiple times within the PGA and his section.  But, according to Brian “teaching golf is my job while playing golf is still my great hobby and I really like to keep things in perspective that way (especially now-a-days), as I’ve competed a whole lot in sports my whole life.” 

Brian has also always been known to just do awesome things for people.  For example, just after he graduated from his old Catholic high school he would go on to lead 4 separate spiritual retreats for the school where he would have a significant impact and touch many lives.  He is a very strong Catholic and quite a believer himself and has learned how to help those in need by researching on the internet and teaching himself how to build websites (starting back in 2006), initially to drive in new business in his first few years as a golf teaching professional.  Brian would start creating websites to help those in need in 2012.  He initially created a food assistance site (at Feedingpooramerica.com) and a shelter assistance site (at Findahomelessshelter.com).  In 2013 he would get his nonprofit 501(c)(3) status under the name Reach Out A Hand USA (as he is the President and Co-founder) and a few years later would secure a large google advertising grant, which has worked wonders to help reach so many of America’s needy.  He would transform the two websites into one (at 4needsmet.com) and add clothing and drinking water assistance.  The two former websites still do point to the current one though at 4needsmet.com, which mostly helps the homeless and has consistently been averaging about 4,000 visits per month since March of 2017.  The website has helped very many thousands of people in need across America.
