Golf Instructors at Brooklyn Greens
Liz Breed (she/her)
Liz joins the instruction team after a long playing career at almost every level. She focuses on an athletic approach through functional and relatable movement during the golf swing. She offers swing analysis, drill based practices, as well as building better on course habits.
Her golf journey began when she was 4 years old with her own set of Fisher Price plastic clubs. While she graduated to her adult set, Liz still believes in the fun and love of the game that she had when she first picked up a club. She played her college golf at the University of Kentucky before turning professional in 2015.
Liz usually has a club in her hand and a fresh golf tee on, but when she's not geeking over the game IRL or on her podcast Loose Impediments,, you can find her around the local haunts of Bed Stuy, enjoying a gansett or very dirty martini.
Nick Teodosio (he/him)
Nick, Head Pidgey on the instruction crew, is the visionary behind all things Brooklyn Greens from the 15 ft tall tree sculptures to the way we every decision on Morgan Ave is rooted in an effort to bring equity to the game and culture of golf. He believes this begins with breaking down the mental and cultural barriers for golfers at all levels that may be preventing the next breakthrough moment or getting on the course in the first place.
His career in golf began at a young age inviting the neighbors to a course he crafted in his front yard and extended through Penn State’s well-respected Professional Golf Management Program, esteemed country clubs across the US, and the past 8 years serving the golfers of Brooklyn.
Nick loves a double IPA, trying new eats around BK and any time spent with his family amongst trees and plants.
Mike Lormand (he/him)
Mike comes to Brooklyn Greens as a lifelong golfer, musician and educator. He brings both the rigor and fluidity that comes with performing and instructing music to his approach to golf instruction. Mike helps students cultivate a lasting relationship with golf – guiding them to approach and appreciate the details from the arcs of the greens to the follow through.
You can find Mike performing contemporary, chamber and orchestral music across the city, driving his Volkswagen Golf (yes, he’s that on brand) across the country to experience every course, or running it back with The Flush Puppies every week in the league at Brooklyn Greens.
