A native of Shreveport, Louisiana, Lee Adger has 45 years of experience competing, as well as, providing professional golf instruction to all skill levels, from juniors to adults.
Lee is married and has three children.
Lee is a self-taught golf professional. His love for the game was ignited while working at AT&T by two former co-workers who challenged him to a game of recreational golf. After being defeated initially, Lee took the challenge to heart, continued practicing and before long, beat his co-workers. As he continued to develop his skills, his passion for the game and inspiring others also grew. He used the knowledge acquired from his personal struggles to help develop and achieve his goals.
As an amateur, Lee qualified for the Texas State Open in 1991 by winning a spot during a playoff against such professionals as the long drive champion, Art Sellinger, and other players from the Ben Hogan Tour.
In 1999, Lee retired from AT&T after 30 years to pursue his desire to play golf at a professional level.
He has traveled throughout the state of Texas and other states competing in qualifying events for the Champions Tour and playing in Northern and Southern Texas PGA events. Lee has proven to be a great competitor, and attained a great sense of accomplishment after finishing in the top 40 of the 2002 Texas Senior Open.
His playing time became limited from 2004 to 2009 after joining Jeremy’s Golf Center and Academy in Waxahachie, Texas. While serving as Head Golf Professional & Instructor at Jeremy’s Golf Center, he organized and conducted golf tournaments, developed junior and adult golf programs, instructed clinics and summer camps, and was the personal coach to some players on the Red Oak, Midlothian, Duncanville and Desoto high school golf teams.
Lee’s dynamic contribution to golfers is his concept in developing and perfecting “the swing”. He is the author of his self published book entitled, “The Pendulum Swing”©, a brilliant concept designed to improve anyone’s game.
The concepts illustrated in the book and his instruction improved the performance of an 8- year old finalist in the 2005 National Championship of Mutual of Omaha Drive, Chip, and Putt Challenge in Orlando, Florida.
Lee introduced the game of golf to a group of students enrolled in the “Success And Leadership Training” program at the A.W. Brown Fellowship Charter School in Dallas and chaperoned the youth as they toured the State Capitol in Austin, Texas and the National Capitol in Washington, D.C., where they attended an historic 2009 Senate Health Care debate session.
In 2010 Lee became the Director of Golf at Country View golf Club in Lancaster, Texas.
In January 2011, he was honored and presented with the “Outstanding Author in Golf” award by Debert Cook (CMP/Publisher of African American Golfer’s Digest magazine) in Orlando, Florida.
