Hank Haney joins OMEGA for two golf events in Houston


World-renowned golf instructor and OMEGA Brand Ambassador Hank Haney visited Houston to meet with OMEGA clients, customers and guests at two exclusive events on Oct. 28-29.

On the morning of Wednesday, Oct. 29, Haney put on an exclusive clinic at Royal Oaks Country Club in Houston for approximately 25 OMEGA clients and golf club members. Haney spoke for over an hour on the golf course’s driving range and hit golf balls to demonstrate the basics of his swing instruction.

Guests then went out onto the golf course for a nine-hole shotgun-start golf tournament, and as each group reached the first tee, Haney spent extensive time working with the golfers individually, giving them instruction on how to improve their swings.

The events at the OMEGA Boutique Houston Galleria and Royal Oaks Country Club celebrated Haney’s relationship with OMEGA as well as the brand’s role as Official Timekeeper of The PGA of America and its support for the sport of golf in the U.S.

Haney has coached golfers, built golf facilities and player academies across the globe for over 35 years. As host of Golf Channel's The Haney Project, Hank has worked with celebrity golfers like Charles Barkley, Ray Romano, Rush Limbaugh and most recently fellow OMEGA ambassador Michael Phelps.

Haney has taught over 50,000 golf lessons in his career and his students have won every major championship in junior golf, amateur golf and professional golf. He has worked with hundreds of top-ranked pros and is most known for the six years he spent coaching Tiger Woods and the 25 years he spent coaching Masters and British Open champion Mark O'Meara.

Haney has also authored five books on golf instruction: The Big Miss: My Years Coaching Tiger Woods, Essentials of the Swing, The Only Golf Lesson You’ll Ever Need, No More Bad Shots and Fix Your Yips Forever.
