Bob Madsen makes golf into ART. He is gifted. He is visionary. He is fiercely dedicated to the PGA of America, to his employer Sycuan Golf Resort, and to the teaching arts. He is humble and quiet about himself, which in some way explains his not being recognized quite enough for who and what he is.
I went to Scotland and played links golf with him, because of him. I know course design because of him. I walk courses instead of riding because of him. I have read 100 classic golf books because of him. I understand the game because of him. I am merely one of the thousands of lives he has touched deeply. I am not a man of means, but I save all year in Pennsylvania so that I can go to HIM for knowledge and encouragement.
So, whoever it is out there who has influence over Top 100 teacher lists, you’re missing one very important dude. I implore you to meet him in person, play with him, watch him teach, and listen to his graceful presentation of our beloved game.
