Meet Bryan

Bryan Skavnak is the happiest golf professional in Minnesota.  Through his heartfelt and sometimes goofy stories, Bryan blends humor and inspiration to teach you about golf and life.  He is the author of the #1 Best Selling book, Happy Golf Starts Here.  He is the founder of the Bryan Skavnak Golf Academy, which for nearly 20 years has taught kids and adults how to have more fun and confidence by showing them that score doesn’t matter, people do.

He is one of U.S Kids Golf's Top 50 Master Kids Teachers in the world and a Junior Golf Leader award winner in Minnesota. He is also the creator of Battleball... the greatest game you will ever play.

As an inspiring speaker and writer, Bryan has helped thousands of golfers (and non-golfers) achieve their dream of being happier and more confident by revealing how to surround themselves with a team of good people and embrace how the game of golf can improve relationships.

Bryan has 11 different colored belts, has stacked 5 golf balls on top of each other, and can dance to N ‘SYNC’s Bye, Bye, Bye. He also can both Whip and Nae Nae. He is married to his beautiful wife Kim, and has two darn cute kids, Ethan and Ella, who eat more vegetables than candy. Weird kids.

Here are a few ways I can help...

You run a great program, and its value extends way beyond golf.

The Happiest Golfer

Score doesn't matter.  People do.

After a less-than-stellar 2011 when my mom died of lymphoma, I decided to write an email to my family, friends, fans, and followers expressing what she meant to me.  This email began the funny, heartfelt and inspirational stories that continue today.  These stories relate more to life than to golf, and are read by golfers and non-golfers alike.  Golf is not about the score and life is not about the stuff.  What matters is the people you're with, the relationships you have, the connections you make and the memories you create.
