One of the PGA TOUR’s most recognizable and talented golfers, Jim Furyk was born on May 12, 1970 in West Chester, Pennsylvania. It seems like Furyk was born to play golf; his father Mike as an assistant pro at Edgmont Country club, and young Jim was raised into the game. Jim Furyk’s only golf instruction came from his father; and many note that might account for his unusual—yet effective—swing. In addition to Edgmont Country Club, Mike Furyk also served as head pro at Uniontown Country Club.
Jim Furyk took that homegrown golf talent to play at the University of Arizona in Tuscon, where he was an All-American twice. He also led the Wildcats to their first (and thus far only) NCAA title in 1992. That same year, Furyk turned professional and the rest, as they say, is history. He joined the PGA TOUR in 1994 and has won at least one tournament each year between 1998 and 2003.

"I do breakdown and simplify the golf swing according to what I see, various mobile apps and high-speed cameras aiding that process, but the POWER TEE automatic system helps my golfers FEEL their shots. They feel good shots and can immediately replicate them developing consistency. They feel poor shots and can quickly make corrections with fewer variables, grip and posture, requiring change. I believe automated teeing technology improves my student's practice sessions and will benefit any golfer working to practice more efficiently and become better faster," commented Spearman.
Mitchell Spearman has been voted by his peers to be a Golf Magazine Top 100 Golf Instructor since it’s inception.
