Who are you?
What defines you?
When people speak about you … what would you like them to say?
What we hope people say about FlogStyle –
We get work done
Not taking ourselves too seriously
Understanding failure is temporary & is a catalyst to improvement
Work Hard … Play Hard
With 25+ years in the Golf Business
The lessons learned continue to open up doors
What started as giving Golf Lessons has grown to include:
Learning about Marketing
Selling travel packages

Owe an amazing amount of Thank You’s to Linda Mandros for hiring me to work for Craig Shankland
Salary – $5 per hour, no paid teaching, no health insurance … though, that $200 week job more than paid off:
Learning from Linda, Craig & Moe Norman
The 1st golf clinic that I taught (with an audience watching) was with Craig & Moe
Got to be around Moe for 2 Winter Seasons
The golf knowledge I learned allowed me to confidently spend the next summer in Norway teaching Oil Executives & Drillers from around the world for $75 per hour
That bet on myself (to work for $5 per hour) continued to pay off …
Once back in States … Linda gave me the opportunity to work & teach at the legendary Matanzas Woods GC in Palm Coast FLA
In 1999, again bet on myself by cutting the cord of a guaranteed paycheck to teach full time
After 4 years hired an Instructor
Since then, have continued to create opportunities for Golf Professionals to gain valuable teaching/business experience
Some haven’t liked me … yet, I’m more concerned with helping people that are willing to grow into success
In 2015 … decided California is most beautiful place on earth
Moved GMS west
Proud of my company
It’s been a tough road
Has made me a stronger person
Way too many people to thank for helping me

Excited to grow hair long & shave once a week
Have had the most mind blowing trip
¡Gracias Mi Amigos!
Brandon’s been skying flop shots since he was 13
Starting in 2005, he’s driven his career in golf with the flop shot mentality…
Hit it as high as you can!
Golfers regularly tell him to change his unique swing…
And then he beats them!
That individuality influences the way he teaches golf to this day!
Brandino no longer wears a watch because he decides what time it is
He’s more than just a glorious mustache
His smoothness on the course transitions to how he lives his life off it
A vintage soul fuels his enthusiasm for good food, great music, as well as …
Spreading smiles and kindness to everyone he meets.
Isaac began golfing at six years old
Aiming for elk at the Estes Park, Colorado Junior Camp
Even with a golf season of barely six months, he managed to find a love for the game
And began teaching juniors by age 17
This led to Isaac pursuing his PGA Membership and launching a career in golf.
Growing up in the mountains, Isaac’s interests go far beyond golf
He loves adventuring the great outdoors and is quite the adrenaline junkie
Snowboarding, mountain biking, fly fishing, and more …
Isaac discovers the road less traveled
He lives by becoming an athlete first and golfer second … the true FlogStyle way!
