Sam’s background is full of experience with many great players and teachers including Al Geiberger, Dave Stockton, Mac O’Grady, Seve Ballesteros, Paul Runyan, Johnny Miller, Jackie Burke, Jim Flick, Jim McLean, Stan Utley and numerous other Top 100 Instructors. Sam has also worked with the top sports psychologists and golf fitness experts.
Sam has always had a knack for connecting with people and has since developed a serious filter for the mass confusion we face in today’s golf instruction. The swings of the best players all look different but they all create the same dynamics from the delivery zone thru impact and they all have excellent timing or the proper sequence of motion. Sam will help you find and understand your own swing so you can trust it and take it to the course. To shoot your best scores you will also need a good short game and some course management skills. Sam has the unique ability to give high quality coaching in all of these areas.
Sam has been successful helping players on the PGA Tour, the Champions Tour, the Web.com Tour, the European Tour, the LPGA Tour and the Mini Tours. He has coached Junior golfers who have earned college scholarships, amateurs who have won their club championships and many average golfers who now have lower handicaps and more fun! Sam enjoys helping women and beginners as well. If you have a desire for learning this great game and playing better, Sam will be happy to help with patience and enthusiasm!
Sam is the Director of Instruction at Mira Vista Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas. He is there from March-November. He gives golf lessons at the Plantation Golf Club in Indio, California from December-February. He participates in Corporate and Private Outings. Sam also travels to coach various Pros and Amateurs.

“In 2003, I was struggling until Sam gave me a putting lesson on Tuesday at Colonial in Fort Worth. He has a good eye and a way of communicating that really connected. I went on to win Colonial that week and two more tournaments to have my best season ever.”
-Kenny Perry, 14– PGA Tour Victories
“Sam understands how things work — ( cause & effect )
He sees and explains things so it all makes simple sense.
We work on my technique, how to practice, my mental game and even my fitness regimen.
Working with Sam has really paid off! He’s a great coach and friend.
– Joe Daley, 2-time winner Web.com Tour, 2012 Champions Tour TPC winner
“Sam Randolph is one of the best hires I ever made at The Plantation Golf Club. Sam is the ultimate team player.
Sam had been a guest at The Plantation several times before I approached him to ask if he had any desire to be a member of our staff as Teaching Professional. I had known Sam for many years both personally and by reputation prior to soliciting his services. His reputation as a player was well known on a local, national and international level. I had made many inquiries about his teaching abilities and knew that he was a highly respected teacher.
I am happy to say that Sam accepted my offer to spend his winters here at The Plantation. He approaches his job every day with great dedication. His understanding of the golf swing and ability to communicate in a positive way has been admired by our entire membership. Swing mechanics are important in Sam’s teaching but his students receive much more. He is very well versed in bio mechanics and encourages his students to become more fit so that they can improve athletically. He is constantly saving golfers from the negative attitude spiral syndrome. The end results is a following of happy students that translates into happy members that ultimately adds more to the bottom line of the Club.
He is a great promoter of our Club, our operation and staff. He is the consummate Golf Professional in all ways.
– Art Schilling, General Manager, The Plantation Golf Club
“I have been working with Sam as my instructor now for the past 4 years and he has truly helped my game. I play tournaments on the Golf Channel Am Tour and since I started working on my game I have won 9 times in the Senior Palmer Division (4-8 Handicaps) over the past 2 years and this fall he encouraged me to move up to the Championship division (0-4 handicaps) and in my second start I won the Fall Classic at Tunica MS a Major Championship. Sam is a great friend and teacher and thank you for everything you have done to help improve my game and be a better person.”
-Sean Fenton, Am Tour, Senior Championship Winner
“Sammy, you fixed a 50 year old swing flaw! You’re the best.”
-Ed Brooks, 2017 Texas Senior Amateur Champion
Thank you for the lesson you gave me at the Plantation last month. You changed my grip to have my left thumb more solidly on the shaft. It took a little while to get comfortable, but it has been a game changer for me! I was 3over the last 2 holes today but still shot 76! I was a 12 when you gave me the lesson and now I’m a 8. So just wanted to say thank you for helping me so much. See you back at The Plantation in November,
