Meet the Pro
Bob Byman was born April, 21, 1955 in Poughkeepsie, New York. As a boy in a sports minded family, I played grade, junior or high school baseball, basketball, football, track and field, wrestling and golf. I played hockey, pool, ping pong and bowling for fun. Growing up in New York and Colorado allowed for seasonal sports participation. Even though sports were greatly important to me and my family, I was expected to excel at school as well. I finished in the top 5 in my class at Fairview High School in Boulder, Colorado with a 3.92 grade point average. I was first introduced to golf, by my father, at the age of 8. I started competing that year in the Mid Hudson Junior Golf Program in upstate New York. I won my first tournament soon thereafter and was hooked.
Favorite Sport Golf became my favorite sport. I spent my summers playing Wiltwyck CC in Kingston, NY and Flatirons CC in Boulder Colorado. At 16, I won my first of 3 consecutive Colorado State Amateur Championships. At 17, I won the USGA Junior Championship and qualified for the US Open beating Nicklaus’ record for the youngest ever to qualify by 3 months. In 1972 I won 80% of the tournaments I entered. It was an amazing year. At the 1972 US Open at Pebble Beach, I played with Arnold Palmer and Julius Boros in a practice round. After the round, Palmer strongly encouraged me to consider Wake Forest University as the college that I should attend. I accepted. I received the prestigious Buddy Worsham Scholarship in 1973.
The Story Continues
Under the tutelage and mentoring of the legendary coach Jesse Haddock, we won 2 NCAA team titles. Along with Curtis Strange, Jay Haas and David Thore, we were and still are considered to have had the best college golf team in history. I turned pro in 1976. In 1977, I won three national opens in Sweden, Holland and New Zealand. I qualified for the PGA Tour in 1978 and won in my 13th event the following year at the Bay Hill Classic in a playoff with John Schroeder. I finished 7th in that year’s British Open. From 1977 to 1979 I was ranked in the top 25 in the world. I won two more national opens in 1978 and 1982 and continued competing full time on the PGA Tour through 1985.
Teacher and Mentor
I competed sporadically on the world Tours until 2003, but beginning in 1987 I started teaching for a living. By the early 1990’s I was an accomplished instructor and coach and have continued to refine my skills. From the late 1980’s to 2003 I successfully taught over 48,000+ lessons. I made the transition from the selfish competitive golfer to the selfless instructor quite easily and naturally. I have a rare blend of playing and teaching experiences, expertise and accomplishments. I have played with or seen every great player from the 1950’s to the present. I have studied the ones who came before them. My students quickly become aware of my passion for helping anyone who wishes to learn. I have taught champions at every level of competition.from juniors to PGA Tour golfers, from beginners to the most advanced amateurs and from children to women to men.right and left handed.
Lifetime Member of the PGA
From 2003 to 2006, I spent most of my time working on my own game trying to prepare and play Senior professional golf. I played on the European Seniors Tour in 2005. I am a lifetime member of the PGA and Champions Tour. In 2007, I put all my energies into teaching and coaching again. I am aware of only a handful of instructors in the world that have my experience, expertise, and passion for this business as I do. My commitment is to share this passion and expertise to all of my students.
