Jeff Vigeant has played golf his entire life. Beginning at age 12, he was “playing against” Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. Of course, Vigeant always won- at least in his 12-year-old mind. After many years of raising two boys, coaching Little League baseball, being a soccer dad, and generally doing all those things a father does, Vigeant again took up golf more seriously. While never having the time to practice, he still managed to have a pretty fair swing and a decent handicap. He was fortunate to be able to retire in October 2007. During that winter, he looked for more meaning in his life. The obvious choice was golf. His love and passion for the game, along with his professional experience as a coach/instructor and mentor, was a perfect combination. In April 2008, Vigeant connected with the USGTF in Port St. Lucie, Florida. After spending an intense week under the expert tutelage of Bob Wyatt, Jeff earned his Associate Member status. It has been full forward ever since. Vigeant has been able to share his good fortune and experience to teach others about the great game of golf. Initially, his students were family and friends who were taking up the game or needed a little help. He also provides free instruction to the neighbors in the “over 55” community where he lives in Worcester, Massachusetts. Jeff Vigeant now takes his passion to others, hoping to show all how amazingly challenging and how wonderfully rewarding this great game is. He could not have achieved this success or made his retirement so fulfilling and rewarding without the USGTF.
