I've been around the game for too long, have worked with 6 on this list combined in person/online, lol. A lot from NJ. Following around 5 of these on Instagram.

Some good choices, some overdue choices, some… interesting choices… Let's see how many I know reasonably well:

  • Scott Chisholm is only 35?
  • Brian Creghan
  • Jennifer Hudson I just met in Pinehurst at the PGA Teachers of the Year conference. She spent about 45 minutes talking with @NatalieB, which meant a lot.
  • Jorge Parada
  • Bill Schmedes III
  • Jason Sedan
  • Steve Sieracki (heh)
  • David Taraschi
  • Robbie Fritz
  • Matt Killen
  • John Scott Rattan (just bought Analyzr 3.0 and has a copy of LSW)
  • Megan Padua
  • Dan Carraher
  • Matt DeJohn
  • Sara Dickson
  • Alana Swain
  • TJ Yeaton
  • Mike Bury
  • Nick Dunn (used to coach at CMU)
  • Corey Lundberg
  • Aaron Olson
  • Mario Bevilacqua
  • Preston Combs
  • Tyler Ferrell
  • Drew Steckel

The number on the list who charge less than I do for lessons? 0. 🙂

OK so-Does this video make you watn to go to take a lesson from this young lady?

Is it a good video?-Is this all we should expect from a Best Young Teacher in America?

Cuz from what I see she is a slicer-Huh?- and she thinks that by standing two feet right or left you are going to completely eliminate half of the hole.

Also-Why would you want to eliminate half of the hole?-You do not.

Political correctness?-You decide. These lists are pointless IMO. Congrats to the people on them, but I think even the pros on them realize they are bunk.

@iacas has been on this list-

Another thing I noticed is the instructors I knew that were based in the NE - they all eventually moved to warmer climates. CA, FL, NV. Makes a lot of sense career-wise. Two I was working with back to back moved west after I started working with then.

We appreciate it!

...if you charged $200 an hour, I’d be SOL for the next 10 years or so

    • I hold it closer to the end. But I agree these are harder to get on.
    • Me neither (with other Pure models), until now. I think with a little more careful technique it's not a problem. I was accustomed to the grips just blowing on/off quickly without having to pay too much attention, except for getting the alignment correct and stretching to the length you want. I made a short clip of removing the grip from my 4-iron, and you can see after a couple bursts there is a point where the top wants to start ballooning (4 seconds in), and if I wasn't careful with the bursts, it might have blown up (pardon the messy garage).  
    • Wow. I've never had that happen. Like, ever. 🙂 I just took the Combos off five of my irons without any issues at all.
    • Day 435 - March 8, 2021 Practiced downtown at Golf Evolution and then played four holes with four balls with a 7-iron at Whispering Woods. Got a tee time tomorrow!
    • Yeah - just a bare steel shaft. They are brand new shafts, no previous double sided tape or masking tape. I bet a single wrap of masking tape would reduce the friction between the bare shaft and rubber grip enough to prevent this. At least it seems like the non-sticky side of masking tape is slipperier than the chromed steel.
