300 not out for Hall


Highly-respected golf coach Martin Hall thanked all of his viewers around the world after presenting his landmark 300th School of Golf show.

The weekly programme is aired on the Golf Channel and sees Martin pick an assignment to help improve people’s game from tee to green, with useful advice for beginners to scratch players.

Martin said: “I never thought I’d get to that many and it’s been one heck of a journey. We have nearly 30 people working on the show every week which is amazing and I want to thank every one of them.

“I want to thank all of the people from around the world who send nice notes to us and say how much they’re enjoying what we do. It’s been a privilege and an honour.

“It’s been a responsibility indeed to try and come up with good material every week but it’s something I relish and it’s something I love.

“If you’re a fan of School of Golf as Harvey Penick used to say, if you play golf, you’re my friend. Thanks so much for watching it’s been absolutely wonderful.”

Martin turned professional in 1975 and competed on the European Tour before turning his attention to coaching. He currently works as the head teaching professional at the Ibis Golf & Country Club in Florida.

As well as receiving numerous coaching awards including the 2008 PGA of America National Teacher of the Year accolade, Martin was made a PGA Master Professional and has appeared in the Golf Magazine Top 100 for three decades.
