Last week at the men’s golf champion banquet, WAC student athletes were treated to a speech by legendary golf coach Butch Harmon. If you are a golf enthusiast then you are aware of Butch’s reputation. For those of you who are golf rookies Butch is the former coach of Tiger Woods and current coach of Phil Mickelson.
Butch and Tiger worked together for a ten year stint. The relations began back when Tiger wan an amateur. Prior to his time with Tiger, Butch coached Greg Norman, Fred Couples, Davis Love III and so on…..
Not only is Butch a world renowned instructor, he also owns the Butch Harmon School of Golf at the Rio Secco Golf Club, the site of the 2009 WAC Golf Tournament. Butch told stories of his time with Tiger and Phil as well as dispensed advice for collegiate athletes seeking a career in the PGA. Also on site was LPGA golfer and Butch Harmon School of Golf student Natalie Gulbis. Butch and Natalie also participated in a Q&A Session with the teams and posed for photos.
