MODERN GOLF PERFORMANCE TEAM

MARK BRENNAN

Mark Brennan is excited to be a part of the Modern Golf Team. He brings with him 7 years of PGA of Ontario award winning academy experience. Insight into Mark’s passion and love for golf may be seen through his favourite quote from the great, late Arnold Palmer; “Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening – and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.” Mark has been a strong athlete and competitor his entire life in many disciplines of sport and games. He demonstrates a well-rounded knowledge of both art and science and how they blend together in golf. The Stratford native is a self-taught player who believes in being a student for life; he practices this in coaching, music, other sports and ambidexterity. Mark believes in coaching strong fundamental knowledge and techniques, combined with perspective, to produce long term growth and awareness. He has headed junior programs under 2 award winning academies, and specializes in mentoring youth golfers to reach their potential. Mark knows what it takes to compete at a high level, he captured a tournament victory his first year as a professional, along with an OCAA Provincial silver medal for men’s doubles badminton. Mark truly enjoys his life’s work and loves to share his passion with others.
