Phoenix, AZ – Seeking top-flight instruction at a golf school for women? Bird Golf Academy boasts Sharon Miller, one of the country’s most renowned female teaching professionals, among its elite teaching staff.

“Among golf schools for women, Bird Golf Academy is superior to others in large part because of the ongoing contributions of Sharon Miller,” says Jay A. Ewing, co-founder of Bird Golf Academy. “We–and our students–are extremely fortunate to have Sharon onboard. In addition to her own career accomplishments, she has helped thousands of golfers of all ages and skill levels improve their game.”

For more than four decades, golf has been central to Miller’s life. She launched her career in 1966, joining the Ladies Professional Golf Tour. Before her 1981 retirement, she placed fifth twice in the U.S. Women’s Open and won three tournaments. Then she turned her focus to teaching.

As an LPGA teaching member, she won the Central Section Championship twice, the National Teaching & Club Professional Championship and the Women’s Colorado Open. She’s been a winner on the Senior Divisions of the LPGA Teaching and Club Pro Team Championship, and was named Golf Digest Teacher of the Year Colorado in 2000. She has also been bestowed the LPGA’s highest teaching honor, National Teacher of the Year. She helped found Golf for Women, serving as its Teaching Editor. Additionally, Miller has donated hundreds of hours to help people with disabilities learn to play golf.

In 1999, Miller became one of three founding professionals of Bird Golf Academy, where she serves as national head professional. Still very active, Miller is regarded as one of the finest female golfers in the country. In recognition of her contributions to the game, she will be inducted into the Colorado Golf Hall of Fame in October 2008.

“We are so proud of all Sharon’s achievements,” says Ewing. “As her colleagues, we are thrilled to celebrate Sharon’s entry into the Colorado Golf Hall of Fame. She is richly deserving of this honor.”
Among golf teachers, the gifted Miller is unparalleled. Bird Golf Academy is a standout among golf schools for women because of her talent and dedication. In addition to the vast wealth of knowledge and experience she brings to students, she also possesses the ability to adapt her teaching methods to each individual. Over the years, students have universally praised Miller, becoming repeat guests.
