Meet The Pro: Bobby Ruzzi A Q&A with Andy Kent
Bobby Ruzzi, 36, is head golf professional at Osprey Point Golf Course in Boca Raton and an instructor with the Don Law Golf Academy. He began working with Don Law back in May of 2007 at what is now called Boca Dunes after relocating from the Orlando area and earned his PGA Teaching Professional designation shortly thereafter. He helped open Osprey Point in 2010 as a Palm Beach County golf course and is now the father of two young children.
Best Thing To Happen To You In Golf?
I got to teach (former Florida Panthers right wing) Radek Dvorak and his son for about 10 years and they’ve introduced me to a lot of other hockey players, specifically from the Czech Republic.
Most Famous Golfer You Have Played With?
I did play with Rod Perry in a group together. We played stroke play up in Orlando and he was a hot shot, but nobody more notable than that.
Nicklaus Or Woods?
That’s tough. I’d have to go with Tiger because he was more of a driving force for me as a kid and I didn’t start playing golf until I was 11. I had the Tiger Woods video game.
Who Has Been The Biggest Influence On Your Career?
I’ve got to go with Don Law. He’s put his wings around me and got me moving in the direction that I wanted to go. So, on the teaching side he’s been my biggest influence and gave me the tools to be a successful coach.
