David Orr to Teach at Golf & Body NYC

Acclaimed putting instructor to teach exclusively at Manhattan’s only private club dedicated to golf and fitness

(New York, N.Y.) – David Orr, PGA Professional—who specializes in putting and has worked with more than 50 touring pros worldwide—is joining the Advisory Staff of Golf & Body NYC, the private club in midtown Manhattan that offers golfers the ultimate setting for enhancing their performance.

David Orr
The 2011 Carolinas PGA Teacher of the Year and Director of Instruction at Campbell University’s PGA Golf Management Program, Orr has been coaching golf for nearly 25 years, specializing in putting for the past decade. Among his PGA Tour clients are:  Justin Rose, Hunter Mahan, Daniel Berger, Jason Gore, and DA Points, plus dozens more from the PGA,, LPGA, Canadian, and other professional tours.

Orr will bring his Tour-tested putting instruction to Golf &Body NYC throughout the year, offering private instruction and clinics to club members. He also will be sharing his experiences, information, and insight with the club’s other instructors through his “Flatstick Academy Certified Instructor Program” that he has developed. Our facility provides; 3 putting greens, SAM PuttLab, club repair, and a putter lie and loft machine for basic putter fitting and instruction.

“I’m looking forward to returning to Golf & Body,” says Orr, who began working with members and staff earlier this spring. “It’s the perfect fit for me… because I believe the mechanics of a putting stroke should mostly be taught indoors. After which, the golfer can just take it outside to the course to work on the 4 Basic Skills of making putts: READ, SPEED, AIM, and LINE. But, what I really love about Golf & Body is that everyone at Golf and Body NYC understands it’s all about helping the member feel and play better.”

Orr joins other distinguished instructors on G&B’s Advisory Staff, including Sean Foley—number two on Golf Digest’s list of America’s Top 50 Teachers and one of Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Teachers—and James Leitz, one of the world’s leading experts on ball-flight analysis and the Trackman launch monitor.
