Teacher Of The Year And Long Drive Champion Headline West Mich. Golf Show

Meet Bobby Wilson In Michigan
Wilson2009

(Grand Rapids, Mich.) The reigning National Teacher of the Year and a legendary Long Drive Champion will headline the 2014 West Michigan Golf Show to be held at DeVos Place in downtown Grand Rapids on Feb. 14-16. Philadelphia (Pa.) native Lou Guzzi, the 2013 PGA National Teacher of the Year, will provide free seminars all weekend along with Texas native Bobby Wilson, a four-time National Senior Long Drive Champion.Guzzi, the owner and PGA Director of Instruction of the Lou Guzzi Golf Academy at Talamore Country Club in Ambler, Pa., is the PGA of America’s 28th Teacher of the Year. He joins such previous honorees as Grand Rapids native Todd Anderson, Hank Haney, Mike Bender and the late Jim Flick-all past presenters at the West Michigan Golf Show. Chair of the Philadelphia PGA Section Teaching Committee and one of GOLF Magazine’s “Top 100 Teachers in America,” Guzzi was honored for his overall teaching performance, innovative and special teaching programs, instructional offerings in various media, as well as outstanding golfers under his tutelage. He’ll receive his award later in January at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando.”Considering the history of outstanding teachers at the West Michigan Golf Show, it’s a privilege to be a part of it in 2014,” said Guzzi. “I’m looking forward to sharing my core teaching philosophy of ‘knowledge is power.’ It’s all about sound fundamentals and correct swing positions and linking them to the proper way to practice. And as heard on the television commercial, ‘it’s not rocket science; it’s common sense.’ ”

For Bobby Wilson, a long drive is also power. For over twenty-five years, Wilson has been conducting clinics and exhibitions in an entertaining, amusing style about how to hit the golf ball longer and straighter. A four-time national Senior Long Drive champion with winning drives all over 360 yards, Wilson is the all-time leading money winner on the Long Drivers of America Tour, boasting 11 separate tour titles. Coincidentally, it was Evan “Big Cat” Williams- Michigan PGA member, inaugural West Michigan Golf Show headliner (1989) and two-time National Long Drive Champion-who helped Wilson in the early days of his career.

“Evan was my mentor and took me under his wing when I started competing in long drive championships in the 80s,” said Wilson who lives in Southlake, Texas. “He was a pioneer of the sport and put long drive contests on the map. It’s a special thrill to be following in his big footsteps at the West Michigan Golf Show. In my clinics, I break some myths about the golf swing while also showing how anyone can pick up an extra 15-20 yards off the tee.”

Golf Show Manager Carolyn Alt said West Michigan golfers are in for an entertaining lesson with the addition of Guzzi and Wilson to the Pfeiffer Lincoln Seminar Stage. “Not only are Lou and Bobby nationally recognized for their expertise and experience, but they’re both consummate communicators who enjoy engaging with large audiences.”

According to Alt, Guzzi will be the 11th nationally honored teacher by the PGA or LPGA to have appeared at the WMGS in the past 26 years. In addition to the aforementioned Anderson, Bender, Flick and Haney, other award-winning teachers have been Mike Hebron, Kay McMahon, DeDe Owens, Bill Strausbaugh, Charlie Sorrell, and Gary Wiren. Alt added that seven Michigan PGA Teacher of the Year honorees have also appeared on stage.

Held continuously since 1989, the West Michigan Golf Show attracts thousands of Michigan golfers to hundreds of exhibits and will feature clinics, putting contests, junior golf instruction, swing analyzers and unbeatable golf shopping values. With several charities benefitting from the Show, sponsors include: Treetops Resort, Pfeiffer Lincoln, Odawa Casino Resort, Golf Association of Michigan, Boyne USA and the Michigan PGA.

Produced by ShowSpan Inc. and held at DeVos Place, the West Michigan Golf Show hours are 2:00 pm-9:00 pm, Friday; 10:00 am-7:00 pm, Saturday; and 10:00 am-5:00 pm, Sunday. Tickets are $10 for adults, $4 for children ages 6-14, and children 5 and under are free. Tickets will be available at the door as well as online atwww.westmichigangolfshow.com

Your Driver Must Fit Your Swing….

Your Driver Must Fit Your Swing…

Well friends, I am back from the Re/Max World Long Drive Championship, and I did bring home some glass. This is my fourth world title and it was in the Grand Champions division. Thanks for all my well wishers.

Thought of the week!

Check out the loft on your driver and make sure that it fits you and your swing.

I had 6 drivers at the worlds, 3 were 5 degrees, and 3 were 7 degrees.

One day of the qualifying, in the Senior division, was into the wind, so I switched to my 5 degree and did not advance as far as I would have liked to. I am thinking less spin and lower launch due to the wind, right? Well, you can actually go too low on both. My drives were solid and looked good, but had no distance. Those that advanced, were using their higher lofted drivers and hitting them through the wind. They had great launch and spin. So you are asking me what is the point?

The wind doesn’t affect a properly hit drive as much as you think. As I have always said, “most solid shots go straight.” So keep it simple. Don’t try to outplay or out maneuver Mother Nature. Play your game! I am trying to build YOUR swing on consistent ball contact with speed for maximum distance. If we can accomplish this, then the elements don’t even matter.

I am still learning and so should you, and together we will conquer the golf world that we live in.

Please share with me a time when you may have over thought, or tried to out think the conditions! I want success and failed stories.

Look forward to hearing from you.

And Remember… Golf is More Fun When You are OUT-DRIVING YOUR BUDDIES!

SOUTHLAKE, TEXAS (August 29, 2013) – Power Golf Institute announced today that Bobby Wilson, 3x RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion, LDA hall of fame member ,the winningest player on the LDA tour, and considered one of the most decorated long drivers in the game has set a new record.

    Golf’s Biggest Improvements

    Golf’s Biggest Improvements

    What is the biggest improvement in golf in the last 20 years? Is it the ball, club head, shaft, or golf course maintenance?

    Obviously they have all improved… but what is the biggest improvement?

    I am going to list mine in this order.

    1) Ball is #1 – According to Jack Nicklaus, and I have to agree. The ball is better because it does not curve as much as it used to. It also seems to go farther, just by looking at the World Long Drive Championship distances.

    2) Maintenance – Golf courses are making their fairways firmer and faster because the equipment has improved.

    3) Club heads – Improvement in their materials and their new engineering with “forgiveness” as a focus has helped us all… especially amateurs.

    Give me your opinion and I’d love to hear an option not listed here.

    Throw them in the comments section below.

    A Quick Announcement

    Friends,

    It was announced earlier this week, that I not only have qualified for this year’s ReMax World Long Drive competition, but that I will be competing in 4 different divisions.

    That’s right, I qualified for the Open Division, Senior, Super Senior, and Grand Champions.

    At 57 1/2 years young, I still feel like I can do it.

    And something really cool… I am the oldest competitor to ever qualify for the Open division.

    The take away here… if I can be competitive at my age after a serious injury… so can you. Even if you feel really down and out about your game, just know that I have not given up on you and want to help!

    Send me your troubles….Oops, let me be specific. Your troubles that are associated with your getting off the tee and down the fairway!

    Sometimes you need a new set of eyes to help you with your training. Well, when it comes to driving a golf ball, I have 20/20 vision.

    Remember… Golf is More Fun When You are OUT-DRIVING YOUR BUDDIES!

    You Can Be Deceived!

    You Can Be Deceived!

    Do you come up short on some of your wedge shots?

    I am talking about some of those that are 15-45 ft. short and you hit the pitch solid.

    What are your lying eyes telling you? Stop looking at the pin where it enters the cup! Try looking at the top of the pin or flag.

    I played in a Pro-Am recently with Burton “Bubba” Gilliam, a Hollywood actor best known for his character in Blazing Saddles.

    Bubba plays some pretty good golf and was coming up short on his pitches and wedges. I needed him to make a couple of birdies if we were going to compete, so I asked him what he was looking at when he had those shots? He said” the pin and the cup,” and I knew then what the problem was. Your eyes will tell you to hit the shot and let it die when it gets to that target.

    Therefore, you will come up short more often than not. So, we changed our target to the top of the pin or flag and Bubba ended the day with 3 birdies and we finished tied for first.

    Change your target, set your sights higher.

    Try this the next time you play and let me know how you finish.

    Remember… Golf is More Fun When You are OUT-DRIVING YOUR BUDDIES!
