To say David Leadbetter knows a thing or two about golf would be a radical understatement. Since becoming an instructor more than 30 years ago, David has helped his students collect more than a dozen Major Championships and more than 100 individual worldwide tournament victories. Today, at 29 David Leadbetter Golf Academies across 13 different countries, golfers continue to receive top-flight instruction based on David's innovative teaching techniques.
Inside the main building at Leadbetter Golf Center of Central Texas, golfers hone their short games inside a state-of-the-art video room outfitted with high-tech software and mirrored walls so they can see if the ball is flinching before they tap it. From there, they can practice chipping at a 12,000-square-foot pitching area; take aim at a 35,000-square-foot wedge range; or let it fly at 75,000-square-foot grass driving range. To further chop away at their scores, students can turn to the facility's instructors during lessons for both adult and youth players. Golfers can also refresh themselves after with tasty food and drinks from Sports Bar, or grab a bucket of beer to take along to the golf practice areas.
