Congratulations to the all my students for showing great determination and skill this season – way to execute what we practiced. A special thanks to all the parents out there as well!

Teaching Junior Golf has been a passion of mine for years, ever since my son took an interest in following in my footsteps and took up golf.

Redford, graduated from Torrey Pines this summer and just wrapped up his Freshman fall season playing for the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels under Head Coach Dwaine Knight and his Assistant Coach JC Deacon. UNLV begins their spring season on Feb. 19 in Hawaii at the John Burns Intercollegiate.

In 2014, I will be starting a series of Junior Golf Clinics on Wednesday Nights.

If you are interested in enrolling your child, contact me at 858-232-5516 or brian@brianbobbitt.com.

Clinic Update – Thurs 9/26 & Sat 9/28

I will not be able to teach the Thursday clinic or Saturday clinic this week. My son Redford is playing in his first collegiate event and will be representing the UNLV Rebels! I will be watching him at the William H. Tucker, which is played in New Mexico. I will be back teaching starting Monday. Thank you!

Redford’s Recent Run of Success!

bobbitt

On June 11th my student (and son) Redford Bobbitt qualified for the 114th SCGA Am. He shot a -1 71 at Pala Mesa and won a 5 person playoff for 2 spots. With a 20ft birdie putt on the first hole he is in and will compete with some of the best amateurs in the State at San Diego Country Club in July. Past winners include Charlie Wi and world No. 1 Tiger Woods!

Later in the week he shot 69-73 for a 2 under 142 at River Walk Golf Club in a SDJGA junior world qualifier. He hit 86.11% of the greens on the weekend. On Tuesday, Redford began another event, AJGA Under Armour/ Vicky Hurst Championship. He shot a tournament career low 65 in round 1 then followed up with a 69 and 72 to finish an impressive -10. He wound up placing T3!

The key to the recent run of success for Redford was his tempo. Right before his great stretch of golf he had a very quick swing tempo. So, he came for a lesson before his play and we slowed it down and it greatly helped his timing and ball striking.
