Three-time Long Drive champion Sean “The Beast” Fister has been added to the instruction staff at the Dustin Johnson Golf School in Murrell’s Inlet, S.C.
Fister is a coach in the Dustin Johnson Junior Golf Academy, which offers a developmental roadmap for young golfers ages 5-13 to introduce them to the game and hone their competitive skills along the journey. Fister will also be leading a new series of teaching clinics at the Dustin Johnson Golf School, which will be scheduled and announced in the near future.
“From its namesake to its staff, facility, and technology, the Dustin Johnson Golf School is a world-class operation. I can’t imagine a better opportunity for me to pursue my passion for sharing my knowledge to help golfers, from kids to seniors, improve their play in the game I love,” said Fister. “Having raised three kids of my own, I am especially passionate about helping young golfers learn to play a game that also comes with great life lessons that will serve them well beyond the golf course.”
Fister remains the only American competitor to win Long Drive competition three times (1995, 2001 and 2005), and was the first-ever golfer to eclipse the 400-yard barrier in the finals of this event when he accomplished the feat in 1997.
Fister was inducted to the Long Drivers of America Hall of Fame in 2002, the Poplar Bluff (Mo.) Sports Hall of Fame in 2005 and Arkansas Golf Hall of Fame in 2008.
