UCLA men's golf coach Brad Sherfy will play in the 82nd PGA Championship this week at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, KY. Sherfy, entering his sixth year as the Bruins head coach, has played in three previous PGA Championships and four U.S. Opens.
Sherfy, 44, qualified by finishing in a tie for 23rd at the PGA Club Professional Championship in June at Oak Tree Golf Club in Edmond, OK. On Thursday (Aug. 17), Sherfy will tee off at 11:37 a.m. EDT with fellow PGA club pros Robert Wilkin and Jamie Elliot.
In 1998, Sherfy guided the Bruins to five tournament victories and a second place finish in the Pac-10 Championships. He was named Pac-10 Coach of the Year that season. Sherfy also serves as Head Professional at Harbor Golf Club in Torrance.
