Bob Emmons, PGA Member

     I am excited about working at Mile Square golf course. I have been a PGA Member since 1998.  I have over 23 years of teaching experience and I have a passion to teach all levels of golfers.  I particularly enjoy working with beginner golfers.  It is a thrill when a student sees the ball fly in the air for the first time. When I worked at Yorba Linda Country Club, I was responsible for the junior golf program.  For my efforts, I was awarded the Junior Golf Leader award in 2000 and 2002 by the Metro Chapter of the PGA. 

     I also enjoy working with advanced golfers.  Helping develop a pre shot routine or working on distance control with wedges are a couple of areas that I work on with advanced students.  In 2007, I helped open the Greg Norman designed Vellano Country Club in Chino Hills.   While there I coached three players that went on to win their respective club championships.  The men’s, ladies and junior club champions were able to utilize some of the keys that I used to excel under the pressure of competition. 

     I began playing golf at six years old.  I soon began competing in junior golf tournaments at age 11.  My greatest junior accomplishment occurred when I was 16.  I qualified to represent California in the PGA National Junior Championships in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.  Entering college, I earned a golf scholarship to play for Long Beach State.  In 1988, I was runner up to Paul McGinley, the 2014 European Ryder Cup captain, in the Long Beach Match Play at El Dorado Park GC.  I still compete in PGA section and chapter events; in fact, I won the Inland Empire Match Play Championship in 2010 and 2011. 

     My goal for each student is to have them make a balanced golf swing.  To do this one needs a sound grip, athletic posture and proper alignment.  Once this is accomplished, I’ll show you how to swing the golf club.  I believe that too much tension in the hands is the enemy to a successful golf swing.  I will show you the correct amount of grip pressure one needs.  You will be surprised that it’s not as much as you think.  I will show you how to generate power.  There are athletic motions in other sports that we can relate to like a tennis stroke, a baseball swing or throwing a ball.  You will learn how to tap into this power and apply it to a golf swing.    

     From my experience, students perform better when they have a minimal number of swing thoughts.  When one has too many swing thoughts, tension is created in the hands and poor golf swings are inevitable.  Golf is not rocket science.  I will keep the swing simple so you can make an effortless swing and generate maximum power. This has served me well in competition and I think it can help you enjoy the game more.  Whatever part of your game needs attention, I will get it better.  If you are interested in taking golf lessons, feel free to call or email me.
