"I can speak for Golf Magazine's nine new Top 100 Teachers by saying that it's an honor to join this esteemed group.  My mentor said, 'Golf is simple — it's just not easy.'  I teach simplicity. People get simple.  Simple works.  What gets me juiced is that voicemail from a student saying, 'I just shot my best round ever!'  I had a guy who was hitting a 175-yard drive with a huge slice.  We got him releasing the club and suddenly, boom — 250 yards down the middle.  He yelled an eight-octave 'Holy s---!'  I love what I do.  I'd do it for free.  [Pauses.]  Well, almost."

image“Joe has been unbelievable,” Lewis said. “He’s like family to me.”

”Lewis was a rookie when she first met Hallett. She brought him aboard for her second season. “I was lost my rookie year,” Lewis said. “I didn’t know how to get better. I didn’t know what I needed to do to get to the next level. “Joe had a plan. He had a plan for what I needed to work on. I needed to get my body stronger. I needed to get my golf swing in a better position at the top. There was kind of a list of things we went through. He was in for the long haul. I didn’t want a quick fix.” Lewis takes pride in her team, from agents, caddie and coach. Hallett loves being part of that.

“I’m just a cog in a good team,” Hallett said.
