Mark Blackburn, PGA _ BIO
Mark Blackburn is the Founder of Blackburn Golf, an academy located at Greystone Golf and Country Club in Birmingham, Alabama. Greystone is the home of the Champions Tour Regions Tradition. A native of London, England, Mark’s philosophy revolves around coaching golfers based on their biomechanical abilities. “There is no one method of swinging the golf club for all golfers,” Mark is quoted as stating. “Rather the objective is to develop a repeatable motion based on the student’s functional movement. Utilizing their physiology students will learn the necessary stroke pattern whether driving or putting the ball.”
