The Sultan of Swing

FlickOne of the best golf teachers in the world, Jim Flick, 77, is now offering up his knowledge five-and-a-half days a week at TaylorMade Golf’s Carlsbad headquarters.

In 1990, a struggling and frustrated Jack Nicklaus solicited some advice from Flick on the driving range before the Golden Bear’s Champions Tour debut. Something clicked with Flick. Nicklaus won the tournament, and he and Flick have worked together ever since.

In 2002 Flick was named as the ninth member of the Golf Teachers Hall of Fame. If only we’d played golf. At $300 an hour we’re sure we could tune up our swings, no doubt. Click the link for the rest of the Jim Flick profile.
