Meet Blake Stark

Blake had a successful junior golf career.  He played D1 college golf and was a member of a #1 ranked golf school that finished 3rd in the NCAAS multiple years.  Blake was also privileged as an amateur to play in the US Junior and US Amateur championship.  He played professionally and tasted some success with the ability to go low, as well as manage tough courses.  He was so blessed to have a team around him not only to coach him but also to help him quench his desire for knowledge in relation to golf.  He was coached by PGA Tour coach Mark Blackburn, trained by the likes of Billy Mitchell and the one and only Jason Glass and work with clinical sports psychologist Dr. Bhrett McCabe.  The knowledge he gained from them can never be repaid except in helping you reach your maximum potential.  Now his thirst for growth didn't stop there.  I have continued to learn on multiple coaching fronts, from the world of 3D, biomechanics, pressure plates, as well as how to train in order to get the best return on your hard work.  After 4 hip surgeries and a chronic pain disorder, he realized playing golf professionally was not where he was suppose to be.  While recovering from hip surgery #4 he helped conceptually create, implement, as well as coach at Georgia Golf Performance, before arriving here at Pinetree CC.

Blake hopes to have a realtionship with each and every one of you and get the opportunity to serve you, as well as make this amazing game more enjoyable for you.
