TESTIMONIALS
“Mark Blackburn is a rare breed of instructor who can teach the beginning golfer to the world’s best. He has all the new technologies available but the old school wisdom, humor and instinct that’s imperative to help a player improve all parts of their game. I was very impressed that he actually asked me what type of shot I would like to play. Seems so simple, but that’s rarely brought up! If you want to shoot lower scores Mark Blackburn will make that happen.”Brad Faxon, 8 Time PGA Tour Winner, Fox Sports

“I became aware of Mark Blackburn more than 10 years ago. I had played with Robert Kalson in his rookie year in Europe and to see the transformation into a world class player I knew 2 things were at play, his dedication being one and the right voice in his ear being the other. I am fortunate over the last 5 years to not only get to know the man behind the voice but I lean on him as a source of truth in this great game. Mark doesn’t take shortcuts in this multifaceted Rubik’s cube game we all love. He is as hungry as the players he coaches, his hunger is for the correct information he can glean from the best and distribute to all. While there will never be one way to swing there are truths to be found along the way. Spend a little time with Mark you won’t regret it.”Frank Nobilo, The Golf Channel & NBC Sports, CBS Sports
