Mike Bender Makes Big Leap on Golf Digest's
New List of America's 50 Greatest Teachers
|Bender Jumps to #4 on the Industry's Most Exclusive Ranking|
Lake Mary, FL, October 10, 2011 – The golf industry's most exclusive list of top teaching talent has been issued today by Golf Digest Magazine as it unveils its biennial list of America's 50 Greatest Teachers for 2011-12 in its November issue. Among those named to the new list is Mike Bender, owner of the Mike Bender Golf Academy headquartered at Magnolia Plantation Golf Club in Lake Mary, FL.
Bender has been on the Golf Digest list since its inception in 2000 and has steadily climbed from No. 37 to his new ranking at No. 4. His jump from No. 9 on the list two years ago to No. 4 is the largest leap ever within the Top 10 Teachers.
Since the first survey in 2000, Golf Digest has used peer voting on the state and national level to build the Best Teacher lists. This year's list was selected by more than 1,000 teachers from all 50 states who filled out an online ballot. There are more than 30,000 golf professionals in the United States who were eligible for consideration.
Golf Digest is the most widely read golf publication in the world with nearly six million readers each month. The entire list is available at: Golf Digest 50 Greatest Teachers
