Mike & Billy share some insights on their
trip to the 2009 PGA Fall Expo in Las Vegas.
Mark Blackburn originally arrived in America from London, England, in 1994 on a college golf scholarship. After two years of playing college golf at The University of Mobile he was recruited to play golf for The University of Southern Mississippi. A multiple Lettermen and Team Captain, Mark received a BS in Exercise Science and Coaching in 1998. Upon completing his senior season Mark began a professional playing career. After 3 years of on the Hooters Tour with inconsistency and injury, it was obvious game improvement was essential to reach the PGA Tour.
What prevailed was the microscopic study of the golf swing, golf’s biomechanics and the game itself. Continual research and discovery produced dramatic results in his performance. Mark’s game improvement saw him as an alternate in the 2002 US Open at Bethpage Park, followed by victories in the Dixie Section PGA.
Mark’s playing resume and communication skills drew attention to Blackburn Golf. Golfer’s sought the precision Mark could offer to their golf game. A PGA Member and GSEM Authorized Instructor of The Golfing Machine, Mark continues to work with golfers of all levels. Whether, a beginner or touring professional, adding precision is the key to a golfers long term improvement.
The interest in Blackburn Golf is growing rapidly with students travelling from across the country to take instruction. Building better golfer’s verses perfect golf swings is the only way to long term improvement.
The playing experience and knowledge Mark offers is unique to Blackburn Golf. He feels there are no bad students, just bad teachers. One golfer at a time, Blackburn Golf will build a game suited to each individual student.
