Rob is also a 6 x International Basketball Slam Dunk Champion with a 44 inch vertical jump.

Today, Rob specializes in helping golfers all over the world increase their swing-speed and distance by using the very system he used, to go from swinging 112 to 147 MPH in just 12 weeks. More on that, below.

Cory Rondeau is the newest member of the PDG family. He is a multi-sport athlete and a competitive international golfer. He has over 25 years of golf experience, with a comprehensive background in performance training and coaching in the sport.

Evan Rutckyj

Evan Rutckyj is a Russian rotational forces expert and the head of Pure Distance Golf strength training development. Evan's swing-speed has been as high as 142 mph, with a personal best drive of 403 yards. He is a former Pitcher with the New York Yankees (2010-2016) and Atlanta Braves organizations (2016), and possesses a 97 MPH Fastball. Evan looks forward to helping you achieve your swing-speed and distance goals through a unique array of cutting-edge training exercises and techniques.


Rob developed the “Pure Distance Golf (PDG) System” by taking everything he’s learned about speed and explosiveness playing other sports, and applying it to Golf and the Golf swing. The results have been extremely positive. Clients are gaining 15 yards in 30 min and 45+ yards in 12 weeks.

At the heart of the PDG System is an array of conventional and unconventional mental and physical training methods, with a distinct focus on shutting off the mind. After years spent analyzing the human body and movement, working with some of the most accomplished strength coaches in the world and testing the latest sports-science trends, Rob came to the realization that one of the most overlooked factors in maximizing speed and power is simply shutting off the conscious mind. The PDG System consists of several training implements that enable you to do just that. The result is instantly faster swing speed and more distance than you ever thought possible.

Rob looks forward to working with you and seeing the look on your face when you see what the PDG System does for your game.

Thanks for taking the time to read.

All the best!
