About Cheryl

Cheryl brings a unique combination of teaching and playing skills to the Mike Bender Golf Academy in Lake Mary, FL. She is currently one of Golf Digest’s America’s Top 50 Teachers. GOLF Magazine has recognized her as one of America’s Top 100 Teachers since 2013. She is one of the LPGA’s Top 50 Teachers and was recognized in 2006 as the LPGA National Teacher of the Year. A native of Connecticut, Cheryl taught in the Metropolitan New York area from 1992-2007 before moving to Florida. She was recognized by the Metropolitan PGA Section in 2007 as the Teacher of the Year and was one of the first instructors in the world to be certified as a golf coach by the Certified Golf Coaches Association. Cheryl has coached several top 100 juniors in the country including a junior girl who was ranked #1 whom she had coached for a decade. She also coached the Lake Mary Prep Girls Golf team to two Florida State High School championship victories including a national record 14-under-par performance in an 18-hole tournament. Anderson also is one of the best woman club pro players ever. In 2004, she earned the Met PGA Section Women's Player of the Year award for a record fifth consecutive season. Her play in 2002 was historic as she became the first women to win all three of the Metropolitan PGA women’s events in one season: The Metropolitan Women’s Open, the Met Women’s Stroke Play Championship and the Met Women’s Match Play Championship. She also was runner-up in the LPGA National Club Pro Championship and in the LPGA’s Northeast Section Championship. Another professional highlight for Anderson was being named The Journal-News Suburban Golfer Magazine’s “Golfer of the Year” in 2001. Her season that year included making the cut at the LPGA Tour’s Betsy King Classic in Pennsylvania (the only club pro to make a cut on the LPGA Tour that season) and winning her first Metropolitan Woman’s Open. A graduate of Rutgers University, Anderson competed on the golf team for four years, including two as team captain. Before turning professional in 1992, she qualified for the U.S. Women’s Amateur and U.S. Women’s Public Links Championships. Anderson is a Class A member of both the LPGA and PGA of America. She has authored numerous instruction articles in Golf for Women Magazine, Met Golfer Magazine and Golf Digest Woman Magazine. Her first book Teach Yourself Visually Golf was published in 2007.

Cheryl is wonderful person—fun to be around and a teacher who works with your abilities rather than one who wants to train you in a pre-determined mold.
