The team at Wembley Golf Course is very pleased to announce that WA native Brett Rumford is joining our pro shop team at WGC to complete the PGA of Australia’s bridging program.
With PGA Tours around the world currently out of action Brett has applied to the PGA of Australia to begin his next step and career transition from PGA tour professional to PGA Vocational professional.
“I’d like to use this downtime as best I can to keep pushing myself, studying, learning and now preparing for the next phase in my professional career,” said Brett Rumford.
I’m not finished playing just yet, I’ll still head back out where I can, but this program allows me to remain in the game and give back as a coach/mentor and do something that I love.
”This transition has been at the back of my mind as I’ve had some injuries that have set me back across the last few years. I’ve had time to reflect on the next challenge, and ask the question, how do I grow and give back to the game that has given me so much?”
To set this up I approached the PGA of Australia and discussed their bridging program the training / duration and qualifications behind it, and what that allows me to do.
Once I complete the program I’d like to dip my toes in the water with some short gaming clinics or master classes and help people improve their golf.”Watch this space to see when Brett launches a short game series at Wembley Golf Course.
We are excited to have Brett on board and welcome his input and experience into our pro shop and WA’s only PGA of Australia Centre For Learning & Performance moving forward.
