Suckki wants to be one of the best teachers in America is not only very evident, but he takes active steps to make it happen. He is very bright and has studied under Hank Haney for over 2 decade. His position for 28 years as the director of teaching of the Hank Haney golf for Golf Digest put him in a unique position to observe and learn from the game’s finest teacher.
When I met John on the teaching the teacher day, he was well on his way to a thorough understanding of not just the golf swing but the entire game and how to play it. With regards to what I teach, Suckki has been very quick to understand the principles that I feel are fundamental to both teaching and playing the game. He has a complete understanding of technique, but more importantly, understands that there is more than one way to swing a golf club and can help everyone who walks through his door.
That is a very rare gift and unfortunately, not one that you often find. Beyond his technique and skills, Suckki is a born teacher in that he can communicate and cares about people. I can teach people about golf but I cannot teach them to like other people. Teaching is a skill plus the correct information. Suckki has both. He is the kind of warm, gentle, and gracious man that people enjoy associating with him. Suckki is also my friend and I am very proud of that.
