Christian Ballard, PGAAcademy Instructor
Christian grew up in Sonoma, CA where he played varsity golf and baseball in high school. From there, he attended New Mexico State University for the PGA Golf Management program where he earned his Bachelors’ degree and PGA membership. Christian is a very active player in the Pacific Northwest Section and is always working to become the best player and instructor he can be.
“I strongly believe that there isn’t just one way to play golf, which is why my instruction changes depending on the needs and goals of the student. I enjoy the constant search for the best way to help my students improve, and I’m always trying to learn and improve my teaching skills.”
When not teaching or playing golf, Christian enjoys playing the guitar, piano, wakeboarding, and working on cars. You can follow Christian on Instagram, @christianballardgolf.
