3Jack's 2nd Annual Top 50 Instructors - Part I

After much deliberation, I came up with my 2nd Annual Top 50 instructors. Here's my first annual list, which I would still recommend each instructor.

Part I 2009

Part II 2009

I'll quote what I said last year:

So I came up with my own list which is hardly scientific. I did not put them in order, just 'my top 50' and it's based upon teaching ability, perception of student success, my perception of their knowledge of teaching, etc. The only requirement is that they must get paid for golf instruction. They do not need to make a living doing it, but they must get paid for their instruction services. Hopefully this will open the eyes to some golfers on instructors out there and the process will get better as the years go on.

To whomever commented above, that is very kind of you to say so.

I do work with David Wedzik and am ecstatic he is on the list. He truly is a phenomenal teacher.
