In 2003, the Australian Golf Teachers Federation made its appearance at the World Golf Teachers Cup, making a splash among member nations. In 2006, USGTF examiners traveled from the United States to Brisbane to conduct the first Master Golf Teaching Professional certification course in that country. After the retirement of AGTF president Gerry Cooney, the AGTF slowly began dissolving to the point that operations became dormant. However, talks with USGTF member Grant Garrison, who now lives in Australia, have commenced in regards to bringing the AGTF back to life. Garrison is also a PGA of America member who is a strong supporter of the USGTF and wants to revive the AGTF to head up future growth and development of the game in that country. Garrison is an accomplished teacher and experienced in the business of golf, and we look forward to a collaboration that benefits both Australian golf and the WGTF.
