Turner has worked with Seve Ballesteros and Tiger Woods

Turner’s story doesn’t end there. After spending a decade in Japan helping international athletes find their way through the country, Bob Turner returned to the U.S. and started ‘Turner Communications International.’

When he was in Japan, Bob Turner worked with top players like Tiger Woods and Seve Ballesteros whenever they came to the country to take part in golf tournaments. Turner’s presence helped athletes like Woods communicate with the local fans and enjoy the stay in the Asian country. 

Bob Turner has been committed to helping Japanese golfers navigate their way on the PGA Tour ever since returning to the United States in 1987. He’s been working with Hideki Matsuyama for several years now, but Turner believes players like Joe Ozaki and Shigeki Maruyama paved the way for Japanese players to excel on the PGA Tour.
