THE PLAYERS Stadium: 2015 Interns

L to R: Steven Brazer, Levi Singleton and Garrett Cannady

Steve Brazer is  from a small town south of Boston called Whitman, Massachusetts. He went to high school at Whitman-Hanson Regional High where he played on the golf team for four years. After high school, he attended Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester, New Hampshire for one year studying Criminal Justice. After realizing that it was not the right path for him, he moved back home and attended a community college. While home, he found a job at a local 18-hole golf course, River Bend Country Club, in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts. Being 19 years old at the time, he started at the bottom just like anyone else, filling divots and raking bunkers. Before he knew it, they had him mowing rough, fairways, tees, greens and collars. He realized that he had finally found something that he enjoyed and decided he was going to pursue a career in the turf industry. Steve attends the Professional Golf Turf Management Program at Rutgers University. He is scheduled to complete his education in December 2015.

Levi Singleton, originally from Battletown, KY  is enrolled in Rutgers Professional Golf Turf Management School where he will complete the certificate program in December 2015.  Levi is also a graduate of the University of Louisville where he has a bachelor’s degree in Sport Administration.  Although Levi’s time in the turfgrass industry has been less than a year, he is eager to learn and looking forward to the road ahead.  Even though his time in the industry has been minimal Levi has a very extensive farming background coming from his families two farms back in Kentucky. 

Garrett Cannady recently graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s degree in Turfgrass Management. Before coming to TPC Sawgrass, he worked at the University of Georgia golf course for two years and did a three-month internship with East lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia. His goal for the internship is to learn many new skills that will help him improve as a turfgrass manager. Garrett looking forward to being a part of the TPC Sawgrass Team and being involved with THE PLAYERS.

We look forward to working with Steve, Levi and Garrett.  We hope we can assist them with reaching their career goals.
