Ken Duke surprises Bob Toski with trophy at Florida's St. Andrews Country Club

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Ken Duke met with legendary PGA Tour Professional and teacher Bob Toski at St. Andrews Country Club to celebrate Duke's victory as 2013 PGA Travelers Tour Champion. Toski won the award 60 years prior in 1953 and was honored to share this victory again with student, Ken Duke, the oldest first-time winner on the PGA Tour.

Their relationship began four years ago during a special Pro-Am for members at St. Andrews C.C. While sharing tips with club members, Duke approached Toski about coaching him.

In 1982 Toski was St. Andrews first Golf Director and his high level of teaching contributed to St. Andrews reputation for golf instruction. St. Andrews is the only club in South Palm Beach County offering a state-of-the-art Golf Performance Center.

Craig D. Martin C.C.M., St. Andrews C.O.O/G.M. said, "At St. Andrews we take pride in our teaching fundamentals and the amenities we offer to enhance our member's golf skills. Our commitment is to be not only an amazing golfing facility but also a great place to learn to improve your game. Bob Toski is an iconic guru in golf instruction. He is legendary and remains an integral part of our teaching strategy at St. Andrews. He continues to give lessons at our club, which is another reason why St. Andrews is a special place to play golf."
