Andres Sala Jr. was born in Valencia, Venezuela. He started playing golf at the age of 4 in his native country and promptly fell in love with the game.
After competing in hundreds of junior tournaments, Andres was offered a golf scholarship at Florida International University. After a successful college career, Andres continued playing golf at the professional level. During the next 10 years after after college, Andres played in the South American tour, European Challenge tour and various Mini tours in the United States. His playing career came to an end after many injuries.
Andres stepped away from the game for a couple of years but he decided it was too hard be away from his passion. That is when he decided to go back to the place that taught him the game and became an instructor. In 2020 he became a Leadbetter Instructor where he now shares his knowledge and passion of the game to fellow students.
