Updated: Mar 11


PGA WEST Golf Academy Top 100 Experience

The highly anticipated Top 100 Experience returns to the  PGA WEST® Golf Academy in La Quinta, California, April 8-10, 2024.


*Reserve your space today by calling or e-mailing PGA WEST® Golf Academy Administrator Eddie Gutierrez at (760) 564-7144, egutierrez@pgawest.com. The cost for The Top 100 Experience is $3,900 per person (based on 3:1 student/teacher ratio) inclusive of all instruction with Top 100 instructors, club fitting, culinary events and “SMART Swag.

 

PGA WEST® Golf Academy’s Director of Instruction Bryan Lebedevitch, and Instructors Joe Hallett and Brady Riggs will provide THREE days of training for golfers of all abilities to elevate their performance. This program features 16 hours of instruction focusing on all aspects of the game including the AimPoint putting method. Master Club Fitter Charlie Rodi will provide custom club fitting. The experience will also employ GameForge, the statistical tracking system that helps golfers fine-tune their skills.


Lebedevitch, Hallett and Riggs are nationally renowned instructors who have been ranked in the “Top 100 Teachers in America” by GOLF magazine, as well as consecutive listings in Golf Digest’s Best Teachers in Every State, including 2024-2025. All three coach golfers at all levels, including PGA and LPGA Tour professionals.

Lebedevitch has more than 25 years of instructional experience. He counts among his students, past and present, elite professional golfers such as former world #1 Cristie Kerr, Mirim Lee, Kelly Tan, and many more. He has coached at over 40 major championships and five Solheim Cups.


Hallett was recently named 2024 PGA Teacher & Coach of the Year by PGA of America. He is a nationally renowned instructor who holds PGA Master Professional Status. Hallett divides his time between La Quinta and Vanderbilt Legends Club in Tennessee where he is Director of Instruction. He has coached top LPGA players including former world #1 Stacy Lewis and Hall of Famer Juli Inkster.


Riggs, who spent most of his career teaching in Los Angeles, most recently has been Director of Instruction at the Four Seasons Hualalai Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii. In 2015, he was selected Teacher of the Year by the Southern California PGA Hall of Fame. He’s been a consistent presence on the Top 100 list and has been fortunate to work with some of the best players in the world on both the PGA and LPGA tours. One of Riggs’ many skills is building combine-style training sessions that help golfers get more out of their practice in less time.

“We received great feedback from the golfers who attended last year’s inaugural Top 100 Experience event and how the training really helped them level up their game” says Lebedevitch. “Joe, Brady and I are excited to expand on last year’s program with 18 players this year.”


PGA WEST® Golf Academy’s Josh Myers and John Battaglia will also be assisting players during the two-day event. Both top-notch instructors have been recognized by Golf Digest as among the Best Teachers in California 2024-2025. In January 2023, Battaglia was also designated one of Golf Digest’s Best Young Teachers in America. They enjoy working with players of all levels and seeing their players excel and become more confident in their game.
