Boyne Golf Academy adds Michigan Legend to Team of Instructors
By Brian Weis
The Boyne Golf Academy, one of the leading golf instruction schools in the country and part of Boyne Resorts, has added Michigan golf legend Jeff Roth to its team of instructors.
Roth, a Michigan native, member of the Michigan PGA Hall of Fame and the Michigan Golf Hall of Fame, has won more than 70 professional tournaments, competed in 19 national major championships with the top golfers in the world and won 15 Michigan major championships including multiple Michigan Open, Michigan PGA Professional, Tournament of Champions and Michigan PGA Match Play titles. He has also won the Michigan Senior PGA Championship twice.
"I have experienced up-close the Boyne golf operation and the Golf Academy over the years, and to now be able to bring my knowledge and experience to help the Boyne guests become better golfers is truly an honor that I am very excited about," Roth said. "Boyne has been a leader in Michigan golf for as long as I have been a professional."
Roth has been a PGA golf professional since 1979 and served as a head professional for more than 25 years. He has rich experience in teaching the game and developing a variety of instruction programs for juniors and adults to improve performance. His knowledge of the golf swing and playing experience makes him a significant addition to instruction for the Boyne Golf Academy.
"Jeff has been one of the best players and PGA professionals in the state of Michigan and we have seen his success first-hand with him winning our Tournament of Champions five times," Bernie Friedrich, Boyne's vice-president of golf operations said. "He has been a member of our Boyne family for years and now we have a wonderful opportunity to tap his knowledge as an instructor for the Boyne Golf Academy."jeffroth
