Every golfer wants to hit the ball further, and Atlanta golf instructor and long drive competitor John Marshall helps them do it. He is a 2005 and 2006 American Long Drivers Association Super Senior National Championship and a five-time RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship finalist. He teaches a swing developed by legendary long driver Mike Austin whose 515 yard drive at the 1974 U.S. Senior Open is the longest recorded tee shot in the history of competitive golf. The swing is different from the conventional golf swing in that it utilizes additional levers to create more club head speed.
Mr. Marshall is certified by the United States Golf Teachers Federation, the Titleist Performance Institute and Impact Zone Golf and offers comprehensive instruction at Steel Canyon Golf Club in Sandy Springs.
He has been a volunteer instructor at the First Tee program since 2002 and was recently nominated as one of the top instructors in Georgia by Golf Digest magazine and as well as one of the country’s top junior instructors by U.S. Kids Golf. He is also an instructor for the Golf Channel’s Swing Fix program.
He serves on the Board of Directors of the Atlanta Junior Golf Association and Georgia State Golf Association. Additional information is available at www.jmlongdrive.com.
