Brandi Jackson grew up playing junior golf in the Anderson, SC area. After graduating from Palmetto High School, she went on to earn a full academic/athletic scholarship at Furman University. During her college career, she won the 2002 Southern Conference Championship and the 2003 NCAA East Regionals. In 2003 she was named Southern Conference Player of the Year and was selected to the NGCA All American Second Team
Outside of her Furman career, she won the South Carolina Women's Match Play Championship in 1999 and 2000 and was chosen as the Carolina's Golf Association Player of the Year. Her most memorable experience as an amateur was finishing Runner Up at the 2002 US Women's Amateur.
She graduated from Furman with a degree in Health and Exercise Science. From her finish at the US Women's Amateur, she earned an exemption to the 2003 US Women's Open. Following the US Women's Open, Brandi turned professional and competed on the remainder of the Futures Tour schedule. That October she attended LPGA Qualifying School where she earned full LPGA status for the 2004 season. She made 3 cuts that year then returned to the Futures Tour where she had 2 successful seasons and earned her way back to the LPGA tour in 2008 and 2009. In 2009 she made 6 LPGA cuts and earned a spot in the LPGA Tour Championship. She also competed in the US Women's Open in 2006 and 2007.
Brandi joined a national college recruiting company in the fall of 2009 as a Recruiting Expert Speaker. She traveled all over the country speaking at high schools and golf tournaments to families about the college recruiting process. She then took on the position as a Head Recruiting Coach to work one on one with the 600+ golf recruits enrolled in programs. She assisted them with coach communications, realistic expectations, time management, NCAA regulations and most importantly, finding the right college fit. In conjunction, Brandi worked with college coaches at all division levels to help them fill their rosters and find recruits who matched their program. Upon realizing how much more she could offer the families if she worked with them more one on one, she decided to leave the company in April, 2011.
In May of 2011, Brandi founded her own total game coaching and college recruiting consulting business, Brandi Jackson Golf. She works directly with families to consult them throughout the college recruiting process, while also coaching the junior golfers on their total games. Her goal is to close the gap between junior golf and college golf, gaining knowledge from the college coaches to help better prepare the junior golfers for the next level. Brandi is also the Director of Junior Golf Programs for TGM Golf, where she develops junior programs and camps for beginners to advanced golfers. She serves on the Board of Directors for The Blade Junior Golf Classic, a top junior golf tournament for South Carolina players. Brandi was recently inducted into the Palmetto High School Hall of Fame for her accomplishments in volleyball, basketball and golf. She will also be inducted into the Furman University Hall of Fame this fall. She is a volunteer at Big Brother/Big Sister, where she has a 9 year old Little Sister.
