Michael Breed to open golf academy at Donald Trump's Ferry Point course

Michael Breed, host of Golf Channel's "The Golf Fix" who Golf Digest ranked 13th in its list of top 50 instructors, will open his academy at Donald Trump's Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point. The Michael Breed Golf Academy was previously located at Manhattan Woods Golf Club.

Trump's Ferry Point, which Trump hopes will host a U.S Open in the future, will now boast New York's number one-ranked instructor when the course opens in 2015. At the very least, the excitable Breed and the limelight-loving Trump should prove a formidable partnership.
