Humble beginnings and a work ethic rooted in small-town America have taken Braedon Fox, PGA, a long way.
Raised by his single mother on a dairy farm in Vermont, it’s no surprise that his work ethic has taken him from a graduating high school class of 18 students to Florida Gulf Coast PGM school and now the outskirts of Chicago.
The Assistant Golf Professional at Butterfield Country Club in Oak Brook, Illinois, had an early passion for the game that grew on a course that bordered his family farm growing up.
Like many PGA Professionals, Fox is multi-faceted. And now the talented photographer who is growing a following on Instagram is looking to combine his two loves— golf and photography.
“Golf photography is a great escape for me,” “I try as much as I can to break up the little bit of free time I have with photography. If I’m opening, I’ll come early to get sunrise photos. What got me into photography is when I see something, I want to do it.”
Despite his love for coaching and growing the game through instruction, Fox has big plans of venturing out and utilizing his self-taught skills behind the lens to expand his journey as a PGA Professional.
“I draw a lot of inspiration from other photographers,” Fox said. “As I’ve gone from place-to-place-, I’ve been able to bring my photography skills. It’s nice that I can do something I enjoy and help the facility I’m working with.”
