Gregg McHatton

I've been roaming around the internet forums lately and reading the various posts regarding "The Golfing Machine" and the who's who regarding whatever. Some of it true, some of it false and some of it so totally out there that it isn't worth addressing.

Today I'm going to introduce you to the person I consider one of the best instructors on the planet (you'll never hear that from him though) , somebody who I am proud to call my coach. If humility is a virtue the man I'm about to introduce should be nominated for Sainthood. He's someone who's not going to pound his chest and pronounce his knowledge and unless somebody else told you who he was, you would probably never hear of him.

That man is Mr. Gregg McHatton. The video that follows is a portion of Gregg's lecture at the second PGA Teaching summit. Gregg also spoke at the first Coaching summit, where he was a part of a panel discussion with Mike Hebron, David Leadbetter and Ben Doyle. (edit Panel Discussion – Hank Haney, Jim McLean, Gregg McHatton & Mike Hebron
Evaluation & Instruction)
I'm going to declare this "Gregg McHatton Week" on Gotham Golf Blog and in turn this will give you some insight into a very private man, who is also one of the nicest men you'll ever get to know.

More tomorrow

  1. When was this and will you be posting the rest of the lecture

  2. Can't wait to hear the rest of this.

  3. Hi Patrick,
    Stay tuned! That was 1991. Since it's Gregg McHatton week in Gotham City. Maybe you should petition the Austrian Premiere to acknowledge it and create your own OktoberFest. :0)

  4. Hi Ralph,
    I have never seen that.
    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Hi Gregg,
    I guess I'll have to send you a copy!
    Stay tuned it gets better.
