Bobby started teaching golf after taking and passing the Player Ability Test (PAT) for the PGA of America in March, 1999. After a summer teaching in Asheville, NC, he moved to Palm Desert, CA to work for Troon Golf, and his good friend, Barry Clayton at the Westin Mission Hills Resort in Rancho Mirage.
Bobby spent 10 winters at the Westin property, as the Head Teaching Professional, traveling to various places for the summer months. Bobby spent the summer of 2002 as the Director of Instruction at Eagle Ridge Resort in Galena, Illinois, a 63-hole facility. There, he headed up all Golf Digest Schools. He has since taught groups, large and small, in Seattle, all over Oregon, up and down the California coast and in Scottsdale, AZ. Additionally, Bobby traveled most of the US in 2007 training other golf professionals to conduct Tempo Tuner Clinics, a product Bobby helped develop.
Beginning in April, 2001, Bobby contributed a weekly instruction column to the Desert Sun, the Palm Springs daily paper. In five years with the paper, Bobby contributed over 200 instruction columns. Bobby’s literary endeavors grew as more and more papers picked up his column, which appeared in New Mexico, Iowa, Illinois, North Carolina, Oregon, Florida, and Virginia papers.
Bobby published his book, MUNIE ~ The Jitterbug Collection in 2004. In 2006, Nordstrom buyers picked up and featured Munie in their stores as a unique gift item to be sold in the Mens’ Departments. Bobby spent the ’06 Christmas shopping season doing book signing dates in a variety of west coast Nordstrom locations — from the flagship downtown Seattle store to the winter golf Mecca, Scottsdale, AZ.
Bobby, along with Jenny Dunn, co-hosted the Golfpac Travel and Golf Show, airing on SunSports TV in 2007 and 2008.
Having grown up in the midwest, Bobby is back year around now as the Director of Instruction at Little Turtle Golf Club in Westerville, OH.
Bobby’s teaching philosophy is simple: “People don’t remember everything I say, but they do remember how our time together made them feel. Most leave with a better idea of how to swing a club, but what’s more important to me is that they leave inspired to play the game. I’m fortunate to get to share golf with so many.”
