Lessons from a Master

For the third year in a row, noted golf instructor Bob May will bring his Golf Academy to Waikoloa Beach Resort. From June 6 - July 5, island golfers and visitors will have a chance to learn from one of golf’s best.

May notably pushed Tiger Woods to a three-hole playoff in the 2000 PGA Championship at Valhalla, during a year in which Woods was at the height of his dominance. The playoff ultimately went to Woods, but the golf world never forgot May’s tenacious play that day.

Nowadays, May imparts his PGA Tour experience, extensive knowledge of the swing, and his renowned emphasis on focus under pressure to golfers through his Las Vegas-based Academy, and now to golfers on Hawai`i Island.

May’s approach includes both the physical and mental game, for high-handicap players as well as juniors. From fundamentals to finesse, his instruction is inspired by and emphasizes the importance of what he calls “a passion for the game.”

The Bob May Golf Academy at Waikoloa Beach Resort will offer private lessons for adults, juniors, and couples, as well as “Trackman” performance analysis. It’s a unique opportunity to learn from one of the game’s best players and most determined competitors.
