About Tim Wagner, PGA

It’s hard to imagine my life without the game of golf. Born and raised in Venice, Florida, most of my upbringing was spent playing the sport. I knew very early on that I wanted to be a golfer but could not have foreseen how much the game would go on to shape my life and lead to a career as a PGA Golf Professional. From sun up to sun down, I would spend every waking moment as a child on the links at Lake Venice Golf Club. During high school I started to take the game very seriously as part of a talented Varsity golf team which ultimately generated 5 PGA Professionals. I then went on to compete professionally on the Moonlight Tour and earned my PGA Class "A" certification.

Over the past 20 years as a PGA Professional, I have taught at top clubs in some of the most prestigious sections of the PGA including Mid-Atlantic, Philadelphia, Metropolitan and South Florida. Currently, I am the new Director of North Campus and Junior Golf Director at Independence Golf Club in Midlothian, VA. I reside in Short Pump with my wife and two young children.
