LGA Director of Instruction and Master Certified Golf Instructor – Orlando, Florida
Originally from Dublin, Ireland, Sean Hogan was a member of the Irish National Junior Golf Team alongside golf superstars Darren Clarke and Padraig Harrington. In 1988 at the age of eighteen, Sean accepted a golf scholarship to attend the University of South Florida in Tampa. While at USF he earned Academic All-American Status and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in management information systems. As a collegiate player, Sean made frequent trips to the Leadbetter Golf Academy (LGA) in Orlando, Florida, to improve the mechanics of his game. It was during these lessons that Sean developed a great interest in the golf instruction, which ultimately inspired him to join David Leadbetter and his teaching staff as a trainee in 1994. After completing the year-long LGA Golf Instructor Certification Program, Sean began teaching golfers of all ages and abilities at several Leadbetter European Academy locations, including Austria, Spain, and Portugal. While in Europe, Sean learned to speak German. He also was appointed to the Director at the Leadbetter Golf Academy in Carvoeiro, Portugal.
Since returning to the United States, Sean has become a Master instructor at the Leadbetter Golf Academy Worldwide Headquarters at ChampionsGate, and he is the Director of Instruction at the Leadbetter Golf Academy Crystal Springs Resort. He has played an important role in LGA business development and has facilitated many of David Leadbetter’s corporate outings and worldwide events for companies such as SAP, HP, Cadillac, Merrill Lynch, Boeing, and Porsche. Over the years, Sean has had the opportunity to assist David Leadbetter with leading PGA Tour players, including Masters Champion Trevor Immelman, Ian Poulter Ben Curtis, and Charles Howell III. Sean is currently working closely with Fredrik Jacobson and the LPGA’s leading players, Suzann Peterson.
