Went to see Hank Haney at the new Golfsmith in Irvine yesterday, hoping of course to be the winner of the private lesson with him and didn't. What I'd like to say about the experience is that not only was he brilliant in the seminars he gave us (a world of knowledge given out freely) but in my brief opportunity to speak to him at his autograph session I was pleased to see a genuinely pleasent and friendly fellow. It's not often you have the opportunity to meet these guys but it's even less frequent that you meet one that you'd feel comfortable having a beer with. Very nice and humble guy.

I had heard that Chicken soup thing as well. Of course I was only able to speak to him briefly but he did seem to be a genuinely sweet soul. What can I say?

Danny,
You should have stopped by. Glad to see I have a neighbor on here.

I had the exact same feeling honestly. Seemed like a cool cat. I looked at my girlfriend and said, "hey honey... that's probably the richest person we'll ever meet in our lifetime. Enjoy!"


other than a chance encounter at a golf tourny with Tiger it's probably true.

I have no reason to believe he is anything but a nice guy, but who wouldn't be nice and pleasant when invited to a golf seminar to give autographs and speak to the public?

I was there as well he was so nice. I took video of it and posted on my site. He seems like a genuinely nice guy and was very pleasant to speak with. You can find the first video I posted today about it at [url]www.thegolfstudent.com

That's awesome. He'd probably be the guy I'd get a lesson from, if I had $500. Butch Harmon would be a very close 2nd.

10 days after getting his first lessons from Stockton.That's what you call coaching.

I think Stockton's strictly a putting coach. And honestly I read and re-read his article in the new Golf Magazine, and endlessly tried his way of putting, but I don't like it. So definitely not Stockton.

He's a general short game coach.But that's where the scoring happens.You know what they say about Driving being for show.. But yeah, the putting style is kind of awkward.You'd have to invest a lot of time in it before you'd be comfortable with it.

The short game is my best part of my game. That's why I would want an actual swing coach. Like Haney & Harmon.

I posted a couple of new videos on my site. All of them were taken at the Golfsmith event. I have about 6 more to put up. He is so concise about what he wants to inform you of and makes it sound so easy. I thought he was especially nice to take the questions and to answer them in such a pleasant manner. After the seminars he gave autographs and made sure to say hello to everyone who attended. Such a cool guy!

    • After you wash them, especially if it's a cord grip you can run some coarse grit sandpaper over it. But you're really just buying yourself a bit of time, it doesn't last long. 
    • Mine was fitted at 45".
    • I agree and voted for narrowing but I think that, in addition to the conclusion above, it may also be caused by the reasons I state below. A randomly bumpy green (and trust me - I played on very bumpy greens a lot earlier this year) affects the good putter more, in my opinion, than the bad putter because it negates being good but doesn't really affect a bad putter. The good putter loses the ability and confidence to hit a straight putt while a bad putter figures it probably won't go in anyway but still attempts to make the best putt he can. Also, judging speed becomes an issue for a good putter. All that up and down motion of the ball is going to slow down the putt so the good putter would be more apt to leave it short or hit it too hard to compensate. A bad putter is just as apt to hit it too hard anyway negating some of the speed loss affecting the good putter. Also, in my opinion, with a randomly bumpy green (particularly if the bumps change location between putts as they do when the first putt is missed) - putting basically becomes a game of Pachinko.
    • 44.5" to 45".
