BUTCH WANTS TO HELP YOU PLAY BETTER GOLF: Its been a popular catch phrase, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas,” but Butch Harmon, a resident of Sin City, is getting ready to share a few of his secrets. Harman is the latest to join the DVD brigade. Like Tom Watson and Phil Mickelson last year, the world-renowned golf instructor to many of the top names on the PGA TOUR and European TOUR is offering an instructional two-DVD set titled “Butch Harmon About Golf presented by Titleist.”
“Over the past 40+ years I have been blessed to work with some of the greatest players in the game: Phil, Ernie, Greg, Tiger, Seve, Freddie, and several up and coming players, such as Adam, Nick, and Dustin, who are destined to carve their names in the golf record books,” said Harmon. “Obviously I am proud to have been associated with them and to have contributed in some small way to their success. But their accomplishments are only part of the overall picture of the scores of everyday players, from all walks of life who have left the practice tee after working with me, that feel that their game has been improved. For everyone that has worked with me there are thousands of golfers that I will never have a chance to try and help.
“With that thought in mind, I decided to commence work on the filming of a DVD that would share a lifetime of golf knowledge with the public that would cover: the fundamentals, identifying faults and the fixes, specialty shots, short game, sand play, putting, club selection, kids, under and over 13, women, seniors and physical fitness (by the way, I do practice what I preach as I have recently lost 40 lbs.).” The two-DVD set, which is believed to have cost $500,000 to make, features 57 chapters containing more than 250 specific tips, totaling over four hours of instruction.
It is directed by seven-time EMMY award-winner Terry Jastrow. “Butch is a natural born teacher. Every golfer in the world can benefit from the lessons delivered in this comprehensive DVD, which will set the gold standard for golf instructionals,” said Jastrow. “Butch Harmon About Golf presented by Titleist” will begin shipping March 1, 2012. The DVD set will be released internationally in six languages – English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Korean and Chinese. The DVD set is sponsored by Titleist, Winn Grips, Rolex, Golf Digest and JMA and will be available for $79.95 on-line at www.butchharmondvd.com
