MEET MARK

Mark Blackburn is the Director of Instruction and founder of The Blackburn Golf Academy at Greystone Country Club in Birmingham, AL. Originally from England, Mark captained the golf team at The University of Southern Mississippi, where he earned a BS in Coaching.

From that exploration, Mark developed a teaching theory which embraces a holistic sport science approach, recognizing that there is no single solution for all golfers.

A Titleist staff member since 2011, Mark is a Golf Magazine Top 100 Teachers and one of Golf Digest 50 Best Teachers in America.
