I am excited to have the opportunity to share the knowledge I have of golf and elite tournament play with dedicated junior golfers who are looking for that special level of support to help reach their highest potential.
I started playing golf at the age of 11 when my family moved to Australia. Tournament play was extremely important to helping me rapidly elevate my golf game, and also to help me become the person I am today. As a junior and young adult, my participation in worldwide junior tournaments, and my wins at the Doug Sanders International Junior Golf Tournament and the World Amateur Team Championship helped to open up multiple opportunities for me. I’m looking forward to helping junior golfers create the same great opportunities in their life.
Since moving to San Francisco in 2010 after graduating from Saint Joseph’s University, Brent has been a consultant at PricewaterhouseCoopers and a partner with The First Tee. He has been volunteering on the weekends and developing close relationships with several of the kids in the Competitive Drive program.
Brent met Gabriel Hjertstedt on the putting green of Harding Park. Since that time, their relationship with two young players from The First Tee, Reyhan and Badu, has blossomed into a coaching and mentoring relationship that lead to the creation of Competitive Drive.
During high school and college Stephen developed a passion for working to make his community a better place, in particular creating opportunities for talented individuals who come from adverse backgrounds. When approached about becoming involved in Competitive Drive, he jumped at the opportunity since the organization combines two passions in his life.
Stephen received his bachelors degree from New York University, and his law degree from Syracuse University. He is an admitted attorney in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Stephen works as a tax associate advising high net worth individuals, and resides in Washington, D.C. with his girlfriend Victoria and their dog Ella.
