At the age of 18, Adam turned professional and started competing on mini-tours around Florida. At the same time, he was also giving private lessons and developing a real passion for teaching the game.
Over the next several years, he spent time teaching in New York and South Carolina, but always had a strong desire to move back to Florida, his “home away from home."
An opportunity presented itself, and shortly after he relocated back to Orlando and began working at the original David Leadbetter Golf Academy. During his tenure there, he was able to observe some of the best players in the world practice, up close and personal, on a daily basis.
At the time David’s top students included Nick Faldo, Nick Price, Charles Howell III, Justin Rose, and many other top PGA Tour players and college standouts.
