About this pro

I am a PGA Master Professional and 7 time PGA Player of the Year.  Highly accomplished teacher, player and club fitter.  I am probably the only teacher who also custom fits clubs and does it corrrectly.  I've been teaching for 35 years and have trained countless golfers of all abilities to enjoy this great game of golf.

I've played golf for my living out of college and take it very seriously because of that.  This doesn't mean everyone is trying to make the PGA Tour.  It just means that I want you to get better fast and then continue to improve.

Include TRACKMAN Simulator at Links of Crystal Lake in Pontiac. 

Sharing my knowledge to help golfers reach their personal goals in golf, from beginner to advanced.  Seeing how it makes a difference in their lives is very gratifying.

    He was very professional, knowledgeable and didn’t overwhelm me with a lot of corrections or changes in my swing.

    Bob taught my son and his friend the game of golf. They had never played before but wanted to learn and join their high school golf team. Bob is patient and truly loves the game. My son really enjoyed the lessons and was motivated to practice in between sessions. Bob definitely goes out of his way to help with whatever you need, he answered our many questions and helped us replace various golf clubs (found us great deals!). I would HIGHLY recommend Bob as an instructor!!!!!

    Bob helped with my swing. He didn’t try to fit me into a cookie cutter version of what he thought was right like so many teachers.
