Laoretti was born in Mahopac, New York. After leaving the U.S. Navy he worked as a club professional, winning no tournaments of note until he was past 50. His best finish in a major was T-49 at the 1966 PGA Championship.[1]

In 1989, Laoretti won both the regular and senior Florida PGA championships, and he joined the Senior PGA Tour the following season. In 1992, he won the U.S. Senior Open. His trademark was playing, including during his swing, with a lit cigar in his mouth.
