GlenArbor’s Rob Labritz medals at PGA Tour Champions after Q school


BEDFORD HILLS – Rob Labritz has been dreaming out loud for the better part of a decade.

Somewhere in the conversations that followed each win here in the Met Section was a PGA Tour Champions mention. He won a lot, so it was no secret how much that distant goal was motivating GlenArbor’s longtime director of golf.

“I’ve always been focused on the big picture,” Labritz said.

The 50-year-old resident of Pound Ridge has been a club professional for 30 years. He made a number of runs at the regular tour, but only flirted with the final stage.

“I’d say the chase probably goes back to Rob finishing as low club pro at Whistling Straits in 2010,” GlenArbor president Morgan Gregory said. “The guy is such a dreamer, but Rob is relentless in his execution. The priorities were always faith and family and that dream.”

Qualifying for the Champions Tour is typically a pipe dream for club professionals. The circuit provides just five full exemptions each year in order to protect marquee players from years gone by who still have drawing power.
