Student Stories

We Develop Greatness

It’s a simple statement that makes the Tom Burnett Golf Academy stand out among its peers. Greatness can be defined a lot of ways: scoring, ranking, college placement. We can accomplish all of this. What makes a TBGA player great runs deeper than just what happens between the ropes. For us, it’s about building the total athlete – as players, as students, as leaders. More specifically, TBGA is about development – not just as an athlete, but also as a person. We believe that greatness is the payoff of hard, smart and purposeful work. Every player that walks through our door is there for a reason unique only to them.

We Develop Great Champions

At the Tom Burnett Golf Academy we recognize, value, and appreciate the clear distinct personal qualities that are learned or innate in a champion. These qualities are what eventually allows them to reach a long term goal or inevitably hoist their dream trophy over their head.

We Develop Great Leaders

The Tom Burnett Golf Academy likes to recognize its athletes who have a greater definition of themselves outside of just being a golfer. For example, our Academy recognizes Jeff Klauk as being a great spokesperson in using his talents to bring awareness to epilepsy.

We Develop Great People

She speaks four languages – French, English, Spanish and Korean. Jeanne is an alumnus of the University of Florida.
