Byron Nelson’s Recommendation Letter
Shawn, I have not contacted you before, but I think your “Hump Day” series have been the best I have seen. I am an 81 year old who has been a consistent bogey player for the past 15 years. I play from senior tees and rely on the short game as my drives are only a “straight “ 200 yds. As you would know the 380 + par 4s are tough for me. I have been a student of the game since I started late (age 30) after a semi-pro baseball career. Twenty years ago I wrote a book titled The Golf Primer: a manual for the adult beginner. Through that labor of love, I spent time with Gary Wiren, Jim Suttie, Greg Ortman, Michael Hebren, Fred Griffin, Dave Pelz and others, but none were more genuinely helpful than your “Hump Day” tips. I still do a little basic teaching to some retirees who want to get into the game or return to the game after years away from the links.
