One of the things I enjoy most about teaching this great game is the number of interesting people I get to meet. And, many of them become very good friends. Brandel Chamblee is a Scottsdale resident, one of the best analysts covering golf in any medium, the Golf Ambassador for the Scottsdale Convention & Visitors Bureau and a genuinely gracious and charming person. His encyclopedic knowledge of the history of golf is incredible. The insights he shares with viewers of The Golf Channel are invaluable for those of us who want to know more about golf than just watching the quick video snips of putting, driving, fist pumps and crowd shots you see during most tournament broadcasts.
I recently spent some time with Brandel at Grayhawk Golf Club. We talked about my teaching philosophy and how I went from touring pro to the instruction side of the game. We then went out for a short lesson. Brandel wrote a blog post about our day together that appeared on Brandel’s Blog on the Bureau’s website. I’m very appreciative of his kind comments.
