Wearner is owner of the Trent Wearner Golf Academy at Meridian Golf Club in Englewood, CO. Voted the No. 1 teacher in the state of Colorado by Golf Digest in its most recent Best in State rankings, Wearner is a two-time Colorado PGA Section Teacher of the Year (2004, ’14). He was the section’s youngest-ever winner at age 31 in ‘04, and was also selected to Golf Digest’soriginal Top-20 Teachers Under 40 List in 2007 at 34 (where he remained until 2014). A member of the national advisory staff for TaylorMade-adidas Golf, Wearner has been teaching the game of golf for 19 years. Prior to opening up his own facility, he worked alongside two Golf Magazine Top 100 Teachers—Mike McGetrick and Keith Lyford—serving as a Lead Instructor at the McGetrick Golf Academy just outside of Denver, and as a Golf Teaching Professional at the Lyford Scottsdale Golf School.

A graduate of the University of Colorado, Wearner specializes in all aspects of the game, including the mental side, on-course management, technique, and practice. He is the author of the book, Golf Scrimmages: Realistic Practice Games Under Pressure, which consists of nearly 100 games that the golfer can practice to help simulate the same pressures they’ll be facing on the course. Additionally, Wearner has a newly developed interactive practice website, golfscrimmages.com, which places a heavy emphasis on random practice.

Wearner has helped more than 70 players achieve their goal of playing college golf, but coaches just as many adults as juniors. Along the way he has been recognized as a U.S. Kids Golf Top 50 Instructor and a Golf Magazine Top Teacher in the Southwestern U.S.
