Testimonials & Endorsements
Phil Rodgers (Golf Magazine Top 100 Instructors; Emeritus, Golf Digest Top 50 Instructors)
"I have known Jeff Brehaut for over 25 years as his teacher and coach. Jeff has always been a very inquisitive student about the game of golf and especially the golf swing. Because of his successful playing career, he has the unique ability to teach and coach the golf swing, to both new students and seasoned veterans. Lessons with Jeff will be a very rewarding experience for all who love the game of golf."
Dr. Glen Albaugh (Sports Psychologist)
"Occasionally, a player comes along, like Jeff Brehaut, who enthusiastically embraces the teaching/learning process, develops a philosophy, organizes information from his mentors, combines it with new information, translates technology to the process and develops a compelling product. That, Jeff has done.
Jeff's knowledge of technique is legendary. Now, with the use of technology he can track swing position on the spot and fix errors quickly. To Jeffs' credit, he's learned that although technique and technology have a very important role for improved play, they must be combined with the Mental Game to expect improvement. During his playing career Jeff spent considerable time with Bob Rotella and I sharpening his mental game credentials.
Jeff is an example of embracing the mental game and technique combination. Unlike most golf professionals, he is able to maintain his own game. He has status on the Champion's Tour and regularly enters US and Senior Open qualifying tournaments with success. He does practice what he teaches.
Whether you aspire for the PGA Tour, college golf, your club championship, or playing well in your weekly Nassau, I'd check with Jeff. He's the consummate teacher/coach you're looking for."
Juli Inkster (Soleheim Cup Captain and LPGA Hall of Fame Member)
“Jeff has played Tour golf for 30 years, from the Mini Tours, to the Web.com Tour, to the PGA Tour, and now the Champions Tour. He learned how to compete and succeed at each level and these experiences serve him well as a coach. He wants each student to succeed and reach their goals, whether they are a beginner, casual golfer, or looking to play at the collegiate or Professional level. He works with the swing you have and shows you how to make it better and more consistent. For me, it’s always about trying to improve my game. That’s when I have fun. Jeff’s video analysis helps me to understand what needs improvement and how to accomplish it. This, along with Jeff’s personal follow up, makes all the difference to me. “
Gerina Piller: LPGA Tour and member of the winning 2016 Soleheim Cup
“Jeff’s Tour experience and knowledge of the game has helped me to understand my game and play with more confidence. I would recommend Jeff to anyone looking to improve their game.”
Jeff Gove (PGA Tour/Web.com Tour)
"I have traveled with, played against, and worked on my game with Jeff over the past 20 years on tour. He has been mentored by Phil Rodgers and with this knowledge, truly knows the entire game and what it takes to become a great player. I have always admired his work ethic and professionalism and thankfully his willingness to help has served me well when I got a little off with my game. I would definitely recommend Jeff to anyone looking to learn the game and go to the next level with their skills."
Kendall Dye (LPGA and Symetra Tour)
“Juli Inkster introduced me to Jeff at their home course, Los Altos Country Club. I was without a swing coach and needed some guidance while on the road traveling week to week as a rookie on the LPGA Tour. What I love about Jeff is that he has been in my shoes. He has lived and breathed exactly what I am going through at such a high level of competition. I also love that Jeff is highly respected amongst his peers. It doesn’t matter if you are trying to break 100 for the first time or if you are an LPGA Hall of Famer like Juli Inkster, Jeff is going to treat you with the utmost respect and care. After working with him for over a year, he knows how to help me succeed!”
Nicole Castrale (LPGA Member and TV Commentator)
"Jeff is one of the best instructors I have worked with. He has an incredible amount of knowledge of the golf swing, yet his delivery is very simple. Jeff is very devoted to helping his students improve."
Michael Tolladay (Canadian Tour)
"My journey with Jeff Brehaut started in 2011. His ability to see my mechanical flaws and make changes is in a clear, straightforward approach. In addition to being my swing instructor, he passes on knowledge and passion from playing at the highest level to help me with all facets of my own game. Jeff’s time is not limited to physical instruction, but extends into my psychological approach as well. His knowledge and expertise continue to take me to the next level."
Parents & Junior Players
Andrew Buchanan (SMU Golf Team/Played 2013-2017)
"Jeff is unique as a coach because he is a great player with proven competitive success, and he has vast golf technical knowledge. Being around him has made me realize what it takes to move through the different levels of golf. His work ethic in the gym and on the course has rubbed off on me. I enjoy his lessons because I leave feeling like I have a sense of purpose of what to work on so that I can improve my own game. He makes videos that have voice overs so I can reference them later during my practice sessions in case I can't remember exactly what I need to work on. I look forward to continuing my development with Jeff and know he could help you too."
Brad Dinsmore (Tyson, SMU 2018-)
"Jeff is the perfect combination of experience and modern thinking. His years on the tour bring a wealth of knowledge that is invaluable to young golfers with dreams of playing at the highest level, and his use of the latest technology allows him to connect with today’s players in ways they both understand and appreciate. Lessons extend beyond the one-on-one time spent with Jeff, with swing videos and accompanying teaching reminders sent post-lesson. In addition to his instruction, Jeff’s experience and advice regarding college golf have been invaluable in guiding us through the recruiting process. We would recommend Jeff to anyone with a serious passion for the game, and do so without reservation."
Mark Adams (Matthew)
"Matthew was a late starter to golf and Jeff's approach to help him build the skills to play at a high level was amazing. There is no question that Jeff was the catalyst for Matthew developing into a collegiate golfer."
Jeff Wilson (Jack)
"I have known Jeff for 30 plus years. We were college teammates and I watched him transform from an average college golfer to a successful PGA Tour player. Brehaut has a unique perspective that few instructors can match. He has the gift of analyzing a student and being able to deliver his message in a simple and straightforward way. He began helping my son, Jack with his game in his teens. Despite playing a limited junior golf schedule, Jack ultimately became the captain of the Brown University Men's Golf Team. Brehaut has a very clear understanding of what it takes to get better and how to get you there."
Jack Wilson (Brown University Golf Team/Captain/Played 2012-2016)
"Jeff is a fantastic teacher, for several reasons. He has a very sound understanding of the game, along with the tools you need to analyze it well. He is super patient and often took time to help me out any way he could, even when I wasn’t in the area. Unlike most teachers, he’s actually competed at the highest level and can offer insight and perspective beyond simple technique. Finally, Jeff taught me how to teach myself, which is probably the most important thing a teacher can do for his or her student. The instruction he’s given me has been great, and will last me my entire golfing career."
Mike Pope (Seth)
"My son Seth started working with Jeff a few years ago. Jeff has a gift for teaching and connecting with teenage kids without overwhelming them. He helped Seth to develop all aspects of his game. He uses repetitive drills, video and on course experience to teach the fundamentals. Seth has learned proper technique on both the long and short game. He has also learned why proper technique is important to learn early. In addition, Jeff has taught Seth how to identify and fix issues that show up in his game while he is playing. This is invaluable as Seth learns to compete and score in tournaments. Best of all he keeps it fun!"
Mark Miller (Sam)
"I am pleased to recommend Jeff as a golf coach for a rising competitive golfer.
Jeff has been and remains a very strong golf coach as well as positive professional role model for our now college freshman son. We began working with Jeff when our son was in 10th grade. This was a bit late in the process. Fortunately, Jeff was able to rapidly focus on the critical areas to help our son build from a good athlete who has some golf game, into a very solid college golfing competitor at one of the nation’s top-tier Division III schools. With a long commitment as a playing professional, Jeff brings considerable credibility and insight to aid the mental preparation for competitive plan. This is complimented by his a strong skill and commitment to technology-aided technical analysis as part of the process. At first we thought this might be too much, but were quickly won over. In addition to aiding the sessions, this technical insight has been helpful outside the sessions as our son now has critical analytic knowledge that he can translate into his own self-analysis and improvement.
The positive impact is apparent: our sons college golf skills and potential appears to be on a competitively strong, upward trajectory, well beyond his college coaches expectations - and as importantly, so is his passion and enjoyment of the game.
As side benefit, Jeff lets us as parents watch the lesson (as long as we don't contribute), so I have picked up a few insights that have transformed my horribly limited golf talent, into a slightly less limited game."
Pete Foley (John)
"Jeff has worked with our son John since 2012 and has done a great job instructing and mentoring him into his junior year in high school. He has made consistent improvement in technique, course management and the mental challenges of the game, competing at a high level in amateur golf. Jeff has John on track to play collegiate golf and has been active in helping with the process.
I would highly recommend that your golfer get going sooner rather than later."
John Donahoe (Former EBay CEO)
"Jeff has helped my game immensely. He is able to focus on the few things that really matter in my game and then show me how to improve. He keeps it simple and actionable. He has helped my swing, my short game and my mental outlook. I have enjoyed working with him over the past several years and look forward to his partnership for many years to come."
Omid Kordestani (Executive Chairman, Twitter. Former Chief Business Officer, Google)
"I started playing golf in my 40's and over the past 8 years I have fallen in love with it. I have taken numerous classes with different top instructors around the world and have learned nicely from all these experiences. However, I can confidently say that I would have progressed orders of magnitude faster and cut my handicap in half, if I had started with Jeff Brehaut as my instructor! His coaching style is practical and potent and he does not pepper you with confusing technical instruction. His drills make immediate sense and are easy to do. He takes the time to capture your swing on video and overlay it with his instruction. I now have an online folder with all his great teachings, which is my personal training treasure trove. Thank you Jeff!
