A list with a twist! The crew at swingmangolf.com recently came up with a novel way to rank golf instructors by using advanced Google analytics to analyze over 600 coaches to see which of them were most sought after by the golfing public. Which teachers are being watched and read online more than any other?
Here are the Top 50 from the list:
43rd Josh Zander, James Sieckmann, Jeff Ritter, Maggie Noel, Pia Nilsson, Mike Malaska, Bill Harmon, Gary Gilchrist
38th Suzy Whaley, Grant Waite, Claude Harmon III, Ben Doyle, Mark Blackburn
35th Mac O'Grady, Darrell Klassen, Mike Adams
30th Stan Utley, Brian Manzella, Pete Cowen, Chuck Cook, Zach Allen,
25th Bob Toski, Kelvin Miyahira, Meredith Kirk, Jim Hardy, Bobby Clampett
21st Andrew Rice, Peter Kostis, Wayne Defrancesco, Manuel De La Torre
18th Doug Tewell, Dave Stockton, Martin Chuck
16th Monte Scheinblum, Todd Graves
12th Dave Pelz, Michael Breed, Mike Bender, Jimmy Ballard
9th Jim McLean, Martin Hall, Shawn Clement
8th Todd Anderson
7th David Leadbetter
6th Paul Wilson
5th Chris Como
3rd Hank Haney, Sean Foley
2nd Butch Harmon
1st Mark Crossfield

An interesting list that is bound to raise a few eyebrows. A few points to note:
- All the teachers in the Top 5, except Mark Crossfield, have at some point coached Tiger Woods.
- Faculty from Revolution Golf are nicely represented with Sean Foley (3rd), Jim McLean (9th), Martin Chuck (18th) and yours truly (21st).
- Both Berkeley Hall teachers were in the Top 100 with Krista Dunton coming in 82nd.
I was honored to be recognized by you, the golfing public, and I am fully committed to upgrade the quality of the information I share with you on a daily basis. My philosophy is this - I want to communicate the most accurate information available in a manner that is easily understood by all golfers.
Thanks for reading and for your support!
