After much deliberation, here is the 3rd Annual 3Jack Top 50 Instructor list (Part I). I've listed them alphabetically. Part II will be tomorrow and then my 1st annual Top 20 Short Game/Putting Instructor List will be on Wednesday.
The list is hardly scientific, but the main theme is finding instructors who help their students improve regardless of their level of play. The wider the range of students improved, the better. There are some other factors involved as well.
I logged in quite a bit of hours watching video sent from instructors and their students who wanted to nominate them for the Top 50 List and I thank you for doing that as it makes me more confident in the final list. And just because you're not on the list does not mean that I don't think highly of you as an instructor. Sometimes I just never came across your name or never saw video of your work. There were probably another 20 candidates that I strongly considered putting into the list, but couldn't because I had not seen enough video of their work.
This year we'll be handing out 3Jack Golf Blog Top 50 Instructor 'badges.' If you are an instructor in the list, feel free to take the badge below to put on your own Web site or whatever. I only ask that you add a link back to my blog at http://3jack.blogspot.com.
