Butch Harmon Still Top of Class


When Golf Digest released its biennial rankings of the Best Teachers in America, no one was surprised to see Butch Harmon take the number-one spot once again. The Butch Harmon School of Golf, located just behind No. 1 green at Rio Secco Golf Club, blends fundamental swing mechanics like lower-half stability and wide-arm swing path with personal athleticism and even golf and life philosophy.

Rather than approach the golf swing with a cookie-cutter mentality, Harmon realizes each golf swing is unique and works to bring out the best for every client without sacrificing natural-born athletic ability.

Butch Harmon has worked with some of the PGA TOUR’s best. From Greg Norman and Phil Mickelson, to Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson. When the finest ball strikers in the world want to go from great to phenomenal, they call Butch.

While the price point of a lesson with the best ($1,500/hour) might make your wallet wince, you can take solace in the fact that when Major champions need a tune up, they’re doing it right next to you at Rio Secco, the best golf instruction facility in Las Vegas.
