Rob Noel – Golf Magazine Top 100 Instructor
Golf Channel Academy Lead Coach
Born in Abbeville, LA, Rob’s early devotion to the game was accompanied by an eagerness to help others improve. “I was the kid who always took golf lessons,” he remembers. “And the reason I became a teacher was because I couldn’t wait to come back and show my friends what I’d learned. Because of that, I believe I always had a knack for teaching, and a passion for it.”
Players of all levels have significantly improved their games at Rob Noel Golf Academy through Rob’s focused instruction. Included as students are PGA Tour players Brian Watts, 1998 British Open runner-up and 13 time winner on the Japan PGA Tour, Kelly Gibson, fourteen-year tour veteran and Nationwide Tour two-time winner and Beth Bauer, Member of the LPGA Tour and 2002 LPGA Rookie of the Year. John Riegger, Nationwide Tour 2007 LaSalle Bank Open Champion and 2004 Ryder Cup Member, Chris Riley. Others that have sought Rob’s instruction include: tour veterans Brian Gay, Grant Waite, Scott Verplank, and Craig Perks.
Rob takes pride in reaching out to golfers, showing them how to become better golfers in a language they can understand. “There is nothing better than watching the expression on a students face when they have perfectly executed what they’ve learned and the golf ball has just exploded off the clubface and is screaming to the target.”
