Meet Chuck Cook

The year’s first Mediterranean Golf Cruise sets sail tomorrow (with the second departure set for October 2)! And the Friendly Planet Travel office is abuzz with excitement for our cruisers.
As you know, Friendly Planeteers who choose to partake in the cruise’s golf programs will enjoy 10 days of the Chuck Cook Golf golf school. Programs include group lessons, personal instruction, a seminar led by Cook, and opportunities to play onshore in Spain and Italy.
Cook is an internationally renowned golf guru, and was recently named one of America’s 50 greatest golf teachers by Golf Digest Magazine.
In 1980, Cook started out as a range assistant in the earliest stages of the Golf Digest Schools, helping such teachers as Davis Love Jr., Bob Toski, and Jim Flick. Cook teaching career includes teaching five major-championship winners: Tom Kite, Corey Pavin, Payne Stewart, Bill Rogers, and Mark Brooks.
In 1996, Cook was named PGA America Teacher of the Year. He has worked with over 100 professionals, and numerous amateur champions of all ages. And now, he’s working with our Friendly Planeteers!
Bon voyage, duffers! Here’s to fabulous times and lower handicaps!
