Miami, Fl (August 18) – Jackie Burke is considered by many to be one of golf’s most valuable treasures. In fact, some of the biggest names in golf have sought out his knowledge of the game, as well as, his knowledge of the swing.
“I’ve never met anyone who loves the game more or has such desire to make it more enjoyable for others,” – Phil Mickelson.
“Jackie Burke is the rare and great man every person should be privileged to know,” – Ben Crenshaw.
Tonight you can get to know Jackie Burke, Jr. on www.thegolfersnation.com when Part II of Classic Conversations featuring Jackie Burke, Jr. debuts.
Burke, founder of Champions Golf Club in Houston, Texas, is a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, a Masters Champion, a winner of the PGA Championship, was honorary co-captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup Team, and in 2004 was recipient of the Bob Jones Award for distinguished sportsmanship, the highest honor awarded in American Golf.
Previously on Classic Conversations Burke discussed his unique relationship with Ben Hogan, and while he continues that discussion with Jim McLean tonight on www.thegolfersnation.com, Burke and McLean broaden their discussion on golf to include more about the golfers Burke knew during his days on the Tour, Champions Golf Club, and the golf swing itself.
Also playing on www.thegolfersnation.com is a special “behind-the-scenes” look at Jim McLean. The cameras were rolling when McLean spoke at a dinner for a Fortune 500 Company and told an entertaining story about Jack Fleck winning the 1955 U.S. Open, and of all things, Fleck “crashes” the dinner. For those of you wondering how a golfer such as Cristie Kerr can hit the ball as long as she does, and how she can swing the club with such consistency check out Swing Analysis. In its last week for free viewing, in this edition of Swing Analysis McLean points out all of the keys to the swing that has vaulted Kerr to the top of the charts of women’s golf.
