When he has time, he enjoys moving the golf ball around and researching ways to improve his results. John and his family call San Luis Obispo, California home.
Bobby Wilson played on the Baylor University Golf Team, and he held conditional PGA Tour status for two years in the early 1980s; however, once he got involved in long drive competition he realized that he had found his niche. In his first year in long drive, Southlake, Texas native Wilson took 4th Place at the U.S. National Long Drive Championships and over the course of his long and successful career in long drive he has captured five world titles; including, two championships in the Seniors Division, one Super Senior title and two Grand Champions titles. Bobby Wilson is renowned for both his exhibitions as well as his golf instruction. He has produced a number of instructional videos, and he currently operates Bobby Wilson’s Power Academy in Little Rock, Arkansas.
From an early age (literally since he could walk), Andrew started playing golf with his Grandfather. After playing golf for both his high school and college golf teams, Andrew was able to take his passion for the game a step further than your average enthusiast. Throughout the years, while playing frequently with both scratch golfers in tournaments and 25 handicappers on the weekend, one thing became very apparent. He noticed that the great players were able to make good use of the brand name equipment, while the average golfer couldn’t benefit as much from them. He knew that for the big brands to sell their clubs, they needed elite PGA tour players to play with their clubs - which ultimately meant - designing clubs FOR those PRO players, and not the amateur. So, he took what he knew of the game and applied it to the development of clubs for the amateur golfer. He launched Golf Knack in 2020 to provide everyday golfers with a portal to find clubs and instruction designed exclusively for them.
