Sheredy, a graduate of Ferris State's PGM program, served for over ten years as a senior coach at the David Leadbetter Junior Golf Academy in Bradenton FL. At the DLGA, Sheredy has trained many of the top juniors in golf, including top-ranked golfers Marika and Isabelle Lendl and Peter Uihlein. Sheredy has appeared on the Golf Channel Academy Live and has been profiled in a number of articles. He was named by US Kids' Golf as one of the top 50 junior golf coaches in the game. The Founders Club is an exclusive private club limited to 275 members -- nearly all residing in the community, including prominent sports figures Ivan Lendl and Carlton Fisk.

Ivan Lendl took up golf during his dominant years in world tennis (1985-1988) and has since become a scratch golfer who has carded a personal best round of 64. His daughters Isabelle and Marika have long been top-ranked US junior golfers and now their younger sister Daniela ("Crash") joins them in the Academy. Other standout players at the Academy include Kristin Swindell and Jessica Korda.
