He is enthusiastic, proactive and a highly knowledgeable PGA professional with a great understanding of the golf industry.”

“I’m thrilled to be joining Your Golf Travel,” said Bragg. “Working alongside Ben Davis and building a new commercial team was an opportunity too good to turn down. We have some fantastic plans in place and I can’t wait to start developing this side of the business and deliver some exceptional experiences for our clients. “
