Tiger Woods, 14-time major champion

Rudy is the Director of Instruction at Morro Bay Golf Course and Chalk Mountain Golf Course in Central California. A U.S. Kids Golf Certified Coach, Rudy has been a golf professional for almost 40 years and is widely recognized as one of the top junior coaches in the game today. He was awarded the PGA Tour’s Card Walker Award in 2000 for his contributions to junior golf, and the 2004 Southern California PGA Junior Golf Leader Award.

Rudy is perhaps best known, however, as being Tiger Woods’ first golf coach. Duran started teaching the 14-time major champion when Woods was 4, and continued to coach him till he was 10. It was that experience that led Duran to write In Every Kid There Lurks a Tiger, a book designed to help parents teach their children the basic fundamentals to play golf.

In addition to Woods, Duran’s most notable students include former U.S. Women’s Amateur and U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links champion Amy Fruhwirth, former PGA Tour player and three-time Nationwide Tour winner Roger Tambellini, and dozens of college scholarship recipients. Duran himself played on the Canadian Tour and PGA Tour for a short time from 1976 to 1978.

Rudy is the past president of the Southern California PGA Northern Chapter and was inducted into the Long Beach, California, Golf Hall of Fame in 2007.

The Dairy Creek driving range is centrally located, surrounded by the first, second, third and 18th holes. The links-style course blends in nicely with the natural surroundings and has been deemed an Audubon Sanctuary. It features rolling hills, rocky arroyos and gently undulating bentgrass greens that will test even the finest of putting strokes. For $60.00 per month, Golf Passport members receive one bucket of range balls every day, free loaner clubs, group, on-course and private coaching sessions.
