Wendi Wiese - Breaking 100 campaign leader

Wendi grew up in Hearne, a small town not far from Bryan / College Station.  After high school Wendi played collegiate golf at Texas A&M.  Upon graduation Wendi and her husband David moved to Colorado so she could learn to teach golf at the Vail Golf Club in Vail, Colorado where she entered the PGA program. Wendi worked at the Vail Golf Club for 3 seasons, then moved to Scottsdale, Arizona where she was an Assistant Professional at the prestigious Desert Highlands Golf Club.  She returned to College Station and served as the Assistant Coach for the A&M Women's Golf team for 11 years where she contributed to four Big 12 Championship Team Wins, 12 Team Tournament Wins, 7 NCAA Division 1 National Championship Appearances and 5 NCAA All-Americans.

After leaving Texas A&M, Wendi founded Texas Team Junior Golf with the intent of offering a fun-filled at school/after school golf development program for 5-13 year olds.  Wendi’s passion for growing the game through at school/after school golf is evident in her personal philosophy that anything worth doing is worth having fun doing. She is passionate about golf and the valuable lessons it teaches. Wendi believes children should be taught how to play golf while they are young. Golf teaches children patience, discipline, and encourages respectful behavior, plus the skills they learn stay with them all their lives.  Wendi is a recipient of the 2012 US Kids Golf Top 50 Kids teacher honorable mention.  Wendi is currently a Teaching Professional at Pebble Creek Country Club in College Station and is one of 11 LPGA / PGA teaching pros who have pledged to give 100 Lessons for Women and Girls in support of the Breaking 100 Campaign.  To contribute to Wendi's campaign, CLICK HERE.  To learn more about Texas Team Junior Golf, CLICK HERE.
