“Top 100” Golf Instructor Rod Lidenberg

Rod Lidenberg, PGA Master Professional and GOLF Magazine Top 100” Instructor, enjoys working with every type of student from rank beginners to tour professionals. His forty-five years of experience guarantees that every student will reach their full potential.

 “I view each golfer as a unique individual and then create the swing that is best for them, based on their level of ability and what they desire in return from the game.”

-Rod Lidenberg


“I first met Rod this summer at the Interlachen Country Club as I was preparing my game for the Patty Berg Golf Classic. During that week we worked intensely for a period of four days. At the end of that time, I had achieved a better understanding of my entire game and what was necessary to improve it.”

Patty Berg, LPGA Hall of Famer and winner of 52 LPGA tournaments

“I have talked with Rod Lidenberg on the practice tee in Phoenix, Arizona many times. I have watched him and heard him teach. He seems to be a very articulate and conscientious person, understands the golf swing, and could be a great help to any students who need it.”

Jerilyn Britz, LPGA Member and 1979 Women's Open Champion

“As a senior golfer, I feel that my game has improved with Rod’s instruction. In the past three years I have won several national senior tournaments, and in 1976 and 1977 was ranked 5th nationally by Golf Digest. Rod is intelligent, honest and a gentleman.”

Neil Croonquist, Senior Amateur Champion

“Rod has an outstanding knowledge of the game and has considerable success in teaching golf to both men and women. I am sure if you check further that he was the most sought after golf instructor in the Midwest, not just for amateurs but professionals as well. I have sought Rod’s advice for my own swing. He has also helped me with many of my own thoughts about golf. Rod is an outstanding personality. I personally believe very highly in his abilities.”

Michael Morley, PGA Tour

“I have been playing golf for 23 years and professionally on the LPGA tour for the past six years. Having finished a pretty rough year on the tour, I decided to take my golf colleagues’ advice and see Rod about my swing. I became easily impressed with him, not only through his knowledge of the golf swing, but through his delivery, which was confident, precise, factual and easy to comprehend for all levels of golfers. His presentation was smooth and easy which enables me to relax and feel comfortable throughout the entire lesson.”

Kathy Hite, PGA Tour

“Rod has guided me to every goal that I have set for myself. . . .to break 80, to realize a single digit handicap and even to see a + in front of my handicap—if just once. Aside from the improvement in my game I realized my greatest achievement just a few years ago when I birdied the 18th hole at Pebble Beach for a par 72! After that round I immediately thought of Rod because it certainly would never have happened without him.”

Jim Troutfetter, Senior Amateur
