Ron Philo Jr.
Ron is the Director of Golf & Club Operations for Stowe Mountain Resort in Stowe, VT. An accomplished player and coach, he captured the 2006 PGA Professional National Championship and is a five-time PGA Section Player of the Year and four-time PGA Section champion. He has competed in eight major championships overall, including one U.S. Open, and more than a dozen events on the PGA Tour.
A PGA teaching professional for more than 20 years, Ron was selected as the “Best Teacher” in the state of Vermont by Golf Digest magazine (for 2015-’16) and New England Golf Journal. He was also recognized as the 2010 New England Section PGA Teacher of the Year. Ron comes from one of golf’s leading families—his sister, veteran LPGA Tour player Laura Diaz, won two LPGA titles in 2002 and competed in four Solheim Cups for the U.S., while his father, Ron Sr., has been a PGA member for more than 40 years and continues to teach at Stowe Mountain Resort through the summer months. Ron’s uncle and grandfather were also PGA Professionals; in fact, his uncle Dave competed in two PGA Championships and his father one. Ron, Jr., made the cut at the 2005 PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club in New Jersey with sister Laura on his bag.
Ron has developed what he refers to as a philo-sophy for improving at golf. It centers around his concept that golf is a target sport. The player needs to develop a motion that allows them to effectively react to the target. He believes the motion needs to be simple and built around the physical abilities of the player.
