Dan joins the Mike Bender Golf Academy team as our Staff Instructor. He comes to us from San Antonio where he was a highly competitive high school and college baseball player. He fell in love with golf after a shoulder injury and shortly after began playing professionally. He met Mike towards the end of his playing career and the start of his career as a teaching instructor.
