Bob May Golf Academy
Friday June 15, 2018
Call for tee off times.
Noted golf instructor and former PGA Tour pro Bob May will bring his Golf Academy to Waikoloa Beach Resort from June 15 - July 15, offring island golfers and resort guests a chance to learn from the man who “schooled” Tiger Woods in the 2000 PGA Championship at Valhalla.
May pushed Tiger to the limit in a three-hole playoff that ultimately went to Woods, but the golf world never forgot May’s tenacity and fortitude. May’s approach to teaching includes both the physical and mental aspects of the game, and is geared to all players, from accomplished sticks to high-handicap players to juniors. From fundamentals to finesse, May’s instruction is inspired by and emphasizes the importance of what he calls “a passion for the game.”
In 1991, he was a finalist in the British Amateur, and—with Walker Cup teammates Phil Mickelson and David Duval—defeated the European team. That same year, May turned pro, playing competitively on the PGA Tour and Nationwide Tour (now the Web.com Tour) for over 20 years, winning the British Masters in 1999, achieving four second-place titles on the Web.com Tour and three on the PGA Tour, including the unforgettable match with Tiger Woods.
May will be giving private hourly lessons for adults, juniors, couples, as well as nine- hole playing lessons. Using the Trackman swing performance analysis, May will tune up your swing and provide his unique insights into how to be successful on the golf course, based on his more than 20 years of experience on Tour.
