Season 2 – Episode 14: PGA Tour Coach Mark Blackburn
"Hal Sutton is one of the most impressive ball strikers I have ever witnessed. Hal figured out how to compress the ball when he was young and repeated his simple move over and over again. It was a joy to watch. Hal was always a good driver of the ball having won on some of the worlds most difficult courses. Hal understands that golf is played between the ears as well. He knew how to think! More importantly though, Hal is a great man and a solid citizen. I always love being around him and taking in a good story."

“Hal Sutton has been a great influence on my son Drew, who’s headed off to play D-1 college golf at the University of Houston. Hal has done it all in the game of golf, having literally seen everything there is to see in the game over the last 40-50 years, spanning from Ben Hogan to Tiger Woods. Hal obviously brings an encyclopedia of knowledge and experience to his students, but what is really awesome is that he brings it with great passion and energy. Hal takes special interest in his students which they feel, and it is both very powerful and genuine. My son has learned a ton about the ‘why’ regarding ball flight from Hal, but he has also learned a lot about the game in general and about life as well. We feel very lucky that Drew has been able to spend time with a golf legend like Hal Sutton and to get to learn from him.”

“When I got on Tour, I met Hal Sutton and we became very good friends having played on a Ryder Cup team together. Our relationship remains strong today. I know that Hal is now working with a lot of really good players in his ‘post tour’ career. He has the experience of a major championship winner on the PGA Tour. Every time I looked up, Hal’s name was on the leaderboard. He clearly knows what he’s doing. I highly recommend you go see Hal at his new academy down in Houston.”
