Brad Marek

Brad grew up in the Chicago suburbs, playing both golf and basketball through high school. During his time in Chicago, he won both the Illinois Junior Amateur and Illinois Amateur Championships. He earned a golf scholarship to Indiana University, where he was a three-time NCAA Academic All-American. After college, Brad played professionally for nine years on a variety of tours – winning 15 times in that span.

In the fall of 2017 he turned his efforts over to the teaching side of golf, with an emphasis on junior golfers. One of his specialties is helping junior golfers earn college scholarships, and he recently co-founded Athlos College Coaching, a service designed to lead students through the college golf recruitment process. Coming from a playing background, the focus on teaching elite level, competitive junior golfers has been a great fit - guiding numerous golfers to earn college scholarships at the Division 1 level. He earned his Class A PGA membership in 2019, and still plays around a dozen competitive events each year. Most recently, he made the cut at the 2021 PGA Championship, beating such notables as Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia, Justin Thomas, and Bubba Watson.

Brad is primarily focused on junior golfers but is passionate about helping all golfers reach their goals, and strives to provide the information and tools to the student that will make their journey most efficient. Utilizing the latest TrackMan radar technology helps diagnose swing issues more effectively while providing greater feedback and a more efficient learning environment for the student. He spends time each year shadowing and learning from other top teachers in the industry, always trying to improve his knowledge to better help his students. For more information please visit
