In the fall he will be playing for the University of Michigan and studying pre med.  Matt’s claim to fame at IMG according to him is doing the most community service hours with about 50 hours.   — Alex Osborne


 Jordan Jackson is seventeen and plays golf at the IMG Academies. He is in my psychology class , he is always quiet but can be funny.  He loves to play golf it is his favourite sport.  He loves to travel around Europe or to South America.  He is very smart and nice to people.  He is also very high ranked on golf. He sees his idol as a Tiger Woods.  He wants to be just like him when het gets older.  The sport is very important for him such as school.  He does not like to go to school.  — Barbora Lazarova

Seiji Liu was born on September 23, 1992 in California.  He resides in Beverly Hills, California. He arrived at the academy 3 years ago as a sophomore to improve his golf game and play for a college program. He is a very cheerful and optimistic person and it is rare to see him without a smile on.  He is one of the most intelligent people I have ever met while also being very humble.  He is ranked in the top 30 in the country for the class of 2010 and top 70 overall for golf and had over 25 top D1 schools recruiting him.  In the end, he decided to attend Harvard University and is going to play for their program.  He works with David Leadbetter Golf Academy Director, David Whelan, and has made great strides in his golf game.  In his free time, he enjoys going out with his friends to the movies, the beach, bowling, working out, listening to music, and racing his car.  I am confident he will do well in college and whatever he decides to pursue in his life. I wish him the best of luck!   — Alson Keeler

Alex Osborne has attended IMG Academies for two years.  Golf is his main passion but also enjoys boat racing, fishing, or anything else on the water.  Alex, born on September 3rd, 1992, is from Bermuda and has played golf for ten years.  Next year he will be attending the University of Hartford to play golf and study finance and insurance.

Diogo Ferreira de Almeida was born in Porto, Portugal in April 27, 1992. He has an older brother called Nuno. He started playing golf when he was 13 years old because his uncle told him to try it and he started to play and loved it.  He used to practice in a Golf Club near his house often and often and he started to compete in tournaments. He’s been here at IMG for a while and here he made a lot of friends by being a very easy going person with an incredible personality.  Diogo is going to Lynn University next year.   — Carolina di Paula

Kenny, left

Kenny Chong is from Boston, MA. He was born on April 26th, 1992 in Boston but he is of Korean descent and speaks fluent Korean. Kenny is a very nice and placid guy who likes to talk and have fun with friends. Kenny is a straight up G and loves to bro out in the darkness with his mystical friends. He came to Bradenton 3 years ago for greatness and plans on heading up north next year for a Babson College in Boston where he will continue in his pursuit of reaching enlightenment in the path to being a perfect G. According to many oracles, Kenny, in the future, will transform into superman and rescue strayed animals in local neighborhoods like his hero, Sailor Moon. He  hopes to become a PGA golfer and play against Tiger and Ernie Els in the next month. I’m not sure how Kenny will manage to become a superman but don’t give up on your dreams!

Greg started Golf at the age of six years old.  Ever since then he has played golf, so a total of 12 years.  He was born on March 1st 1992 making him 18 years old right now.  When he graduates Pendleton in just a couple of weeks, he is going to turn pro.  Aside from turning pro at golf he is going to an International Business School in Poland.  As he was originally from Warsaw, Poland the move is going to be a lot easier for him.  I wish Greg the best of luck in both his golf and studies.  Good luck Greg!
