Bob Wallace, PGA Professional and Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Level II Certified Golf Fitness Instructor, was born in Baltimore, Maryland, played college golf at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and became a Golf Professional in 1997
Since then Bob has competed on multiple professional mini-tours and continues to play competitive golf within the Sections of the PGA of America. His competitive accomplishments include being awarded the 2019 & 2018 North Florida PGA Northern Chapter Player of the Year, 1st place in the 2018 North Florida PGA Northern Chapter Pro-Pro, 1st place in the 2017 & 2016 North Florida PGA Northern Chapter Championship, Low Professional and 2nd place overall in the 2018 Gate Petroleum Invitational, 2nd place in the 2019 North Florida PGA Northern Chapter Stableford, 3rd place in the 2018 & 2017 North Florida PGA Northern Chapter Stableford, and many other top-5 performances.
Bob's instinctive instructional ability continues to be highlighted by his extensive competitive experience, knowledge of the golf swing and the game, the human body and human nature as well as his passion for the game of golf. Over the past fifteen years, Bob has had the pleasure of working with players of all ages and skill levels, from the complete novice to the advanced player, several club champions, and the skillful tour player.
Bob's passion includes playing, teaching and coaching. His teaching philosophy begins with finding the simplest, most efficient and effective way for each individual student to achieve their desired results based their own physical characteristics, level of commitment, level of capacity, and statistical reality. Bob refers to the game of golf as the world's largest three-dimensional living jigsaw puzzle, a puzzle that is unique to every player. Bob breaks down every area of the game into four basic puzzle pieces: "Thought of Motion", "Set-up of Motion", "Range of Motion", and "Pace of Motion". Within each puzzle piece, Bob intends to educate his students about the cause & effect relationships associated with the golf swing, the mind, the body, and all aspects of the game respectively in order to inspire a new found confidence and help build the "Unbiased Motion".
Best 30-minute lesson with Bob Wallace in my 18 years of taking golf instruction. Having trouble topping the ball with hybrids. Bob broke a tee in half, buried most of it in the grass, and said, “Hit through the tee to knock it out of the turf. That will bring club head down to ground level.” With a ball replacing tee, Bob said, “Pretend half tee is still there. Fool the brain. Hit through imaginary tee. The ball just gets in the way.” And topping started to go away. Having trouble with slice. Bob adjusted my grip so right hand is turned more to the left when gripping club. He said I should see glove seam pointing to left shoulder. He also said I should see the glove logo. (I’m left handed.) Vee with thumb formed should also point to left shoulder. Bob said, “It will feel awkward at first.” But slice started to go away We speeded up swing tempo in a previous lesson. But Bob noticed I was not following through enough. He said my chest should be pointing 45 degrees past half way through follow through. Over my right shoulder. I was stopping follow through with chest pointing forward. I played the next day, asking my partners to be patient with new things I had learned. They noticed less topping, less slice and more distance. What more could a student want?
Only had one lesson. Give me time for a couple more lessons to comment.
The best lesson I ever had.
The process is customized for each student based on skill level, goals and desired results. A simple meet & greet discussion can be effective or even better, a 9-hole performance assessment is necessary to completely evaluate a player's game in order to fully identify a player's strengths and weaknesses and prescribe an effective course of action.

I teach and train at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach. My standard consulting and training rates are as follows: $70.00 / 30 minutes, $120.00 / 60 minutes, $175.00 / 90 minutes; however, I also offer Training Packages as well as Player Development Programs.
I wanted to build a better mouse trap! For far too long I didn't like how the game was being taught. I would see too many golfers losing interest in the game because of poor instruction and over-complicated teaching philosophies and techniques, leading to zero improvement. My philosophy and approach allows me to break things down into digestible pieces and creates a road-map for my students, allowing them to self correct when necessary.
I have worked with all skill levels from complete beginners to highly competitive golfers.
There's nothing more rewarding then seeing a complete beginner launching the ball into the air for the first time!
Do your research, read through reviews, schedule a meet & greet, find the instructor / trainer you connect best with and feel most comfortable with.
Ask yourself what are your goals and what are you prepared to do to achieve them. Instructors are committed to their students, are you going to commit to yourself and your instructor?
