Born in Texas and raised in Tallahassee, Florida and Houston, Texas, LaBelle took to golf at an early age. At Killearn Country Club in Florida he was fortunate to spend time around several PGA Tour players, including Kenny Knox, Mark Lye, Rex Caldwell, Greg Powers and Forrest Fezler. He credits his access to tour professionals during his childhood for his passion and understanding of the game.

LaBelle was an accomplished junior golfer before graduating from Abilene Christian University in 1997. At Abilene he earned Academic All-American honors and was a member of the 1992 NCAA Division II championship golf team. LaBelle has turned his positive experiences as a young player into a dedication for helping today’s juniors. In 2012 he started the West Coast Elite program, based on Titleist Performance Institute training, to help guide promising junior golfers.

Working with Harmon as his mentor, LaBelle has organized his approach to teaching around helping players learn to execute golf shots, not create perfect golf swings. He works with a player’s natural abilities and limitations to help him or her blend time-tested fundamentals with individual style. LaBelle credits Harmon for his influence in all aspects of coaching.

In 2010 Greg LaBelle was named one of Golf Digest’s Best Young Teachers in America. He lives outside Las Vegas with his wife, Michaela, and their daughter, Lucy Rae. His objective is to continue to learn from the great players and instructors of the past, to utilize today’s technological advances in teaching, and to prepare to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

News and notes from Greg Labelle

Corey Pavin Records Lowest 9-hole Score in PGA Tour History Just Months After Starting With Greg Labelle

Excerpts From Southland Golfer Magazine article, 2008

... What also fostered improvement was the help of swing guru Butch Harmon, a relationship that led Pavin to Greg LaBelle, a Harmon associate, in 2006. A couple months after LaBelle and Pavin began working together, the 46-year-old Tour veteran put his new instructor’s teachings to work in record-breaking fashion. His 8-under-par 26 over the first nine holes of the 2006 U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee remains the lowest nine-hole total ever tallied on the PGA Tour.

.. While LaBelle hasn’t transformed Pavin into a 300-yard hitter, he has made changes that have tuned his game to today’s equipment advances. “He’s worked really hard at getting his driver up in the air and working the ball right to left in competition,” says LaBelle. “He’s actually better at it now than he’s ever been. Adds LaBelle: “I think he’s one of the most amazing golfers on the planet. I’m not sure there are too many people better in terms of thinking their way around the course. He knows exactly how to use his game to get the best score.”
