Brian Fallon, Apprentice Professional

BrianFallon_1000Brian was born and raised in Wellesley, Massachusetts, about 20 minutes outside of Boston. He graduated from Wellesley High School where he spent all four years playing for the varsity hockey team, leading his team to the state championships during his junior and senior year. After high school, Brian spent a post graduate year at Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire on a hockey scholarship, graduating with Magna Cum Laude honors. Following Brewster, Brian attended Providence College, graduating with two bachelor degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science.

Brian learned the game of golf from his father and grandfather early at the age of 4 and has been an avid golfer throughout his childhood to the present day. In February of 2011, Brian moved out to Sacramento to pursue a career in the golf industry.

Starting as a cashier at Bing Maloney in March of 2011, Brian has been involved in the First Tee and Inner City programs as a coach teaching junior golfer’s core values, building character and personal growth. Brian has also been involved as an assistant tournament director and currently an assistant professional starting in 2012.

Brian’s philosophy on the game of golf and teaching is to make sure you keep things simple. He believes everyone has a different swing, so comparing your swing to that of a professional golfer can get you in trouble. While mechanics are important, a fluid, repetitive swing will produce the best results. Brian tells everyone, you play your best golf when you are confident and having fun.
