Robert Linville of Precision Golf School has been teaching golf for more than 25 years. He was an All-American at Guilford College and played professional golf for several years before turning to teaching full-time. He co-founded Precision Golf School in 1989 and the school has now grown to five Triad locations and a staff of eight full-time instructors. He has appeared on Golf Academy Live and been honored by the Carolinas PGA as Teacher of the Year and Golf Digest as one of North Carolina’s top-10 instructors.
He recently answered a few questions for Triad Golf Today.
Q: Robert Linville’s Precision Golf School has a reputation of being one of the top schools in North Carolina. Who are some of your players?
A: I’ve been fortunate enough to work with a great array of players. On the Champions Tour, I have had the opportunity to work with Mike Goodes for 16 years. He’s had tremendous success and he continues to be a great part of our organization. On the Nationwide Tour, Chris Mundorf has been a student of mine since his days in juniors. I have numerous players in the collegiate ranks, including Abby Bools and Julia Strandberg at East Carolina and Kathleen Strandberg at N.C. State.
Junior golf is a passion of mine so I am proud to teach 6 of the top 10 girls in North Carolina and top boys from North Carolina and Virginia. These players include N.C. Women’s Amateur Champion and U.S. Open participant Katherine Perry, Katie Kirk, Megan Burnham, Taelor Rubin, Lori Beth Adams, Andrea Robbins, Robert Register and Payne McLeod. I am excited that all five of the graduating seniors will be playing Division I golf next year.
