Jim Hackett / PGA Golf Professional 2003

A little about me.  I began my golf career at age 8 in St. Petersburg, Florida at my father’s side. After graduating from Florida State University I began my professional golf career at Long Cove Club in Hilton Head, SC.  Ron Cerrudo and Jim Ferree were two of my most influential mentors, both played on the PGA and Champion’s Tour.  My teaching philosophy is to start with basics such as grip, posture, alignment and I teach to the individual.  Every golf swing is unique and one method does not fit all.  I have given over 2,900 individual lessons in my golf career and have been fortunate to achieve mainly positive results.  I’ve taught all skill levels from beginners to professionals and I look forward to meeting and working with all those seeking game improvement.
