In this episode, the SeeMore Tour Team sits down with Joe Hallett, director of instruction at Vanderbilt Legends Club in Franklin, Tenn., and golf instructor to top LPGA players, to discuss insights based on Hallett's extensive work with some of the world’s best players.  

Key topics include green reading and Hallett's endorsement of the AimPoint system for line and speed control.  Hallett also shares how the best putters in the world build on simple systems to create a smooth, confident and consistent stroke that will hold up under pressure.

Hallett was the 2018 recipient of the Horton Smith Award from the PGA of America. Presented annually since 1976, the award, which recently was renamed to the PGA Professional Development Award, recognizes individuals who have developed and enriched education opportunities at the state, sectional and national levels. Hallett was the Tennessee Section’s Horton Smith Award winner in 2012 and PGA Teacher of the Year in 2013. 

He has a quarter century of experience as a PGA professional and has worked closely with a number of high-profile players on the LPGA Tour, including Stacy Lewis, who was ranked No. 1 in the world in 2012, Inbee Park and Lizette Salas. He also hosted and produced “The Golf Show” on SportsTalk Radio Network.
