Brady grew up in Oswego, NY, playing golf at Oswego Country Club in the summers and baseball the rest of the time. He graduated from Mexico High School and attended Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY, where he played baseball and graduated with a B.S. in Global Supply Chain Management.
He decided to try Long Drive in 2015 when he got a lesson from a good buddy and PGA Golf Instructor, Jake Reeves. His club head speed was around 135 with a 45” driver, and his carry distance was 350 yards. Brady contacted a few folks he knew who competed in Long Drive to get the scoop about getting started.
All this led Brady to Bobby Peterson, the most winning coach in the sport. He had the chance to work with Bobby one weekend, and when he arrived for the session, two professional Long Drive athletes who were ranked Top 10 in the world were there working with him.
That day, he hit a personal best club speed of 147 and was faster than the other two guys. The rest is history!
