About the Speaker:
David Lee has been a PGA professional golfer since the 1970’s. He has spent the past 50 years helping people learn golf and how to thrive on the golf course. D. C. Lee, David Lee’s grandfather, who was a golf fanatic in his own right, hooked little David on the game at the tender age of four. As a child, David was fascinated with how things worked and took everything apart to see what made it function.

He disassembled the shotguns, the fishing reels, the radio, and even his father’s wristwatch, which he couldn’t put back together. It remained hidden in one of David’s drawers for years before he confessed. At the age of twelve, David began helping his father, Pathologist/County Coroner, Bob Lee, do autopsies. “That was how my introduction to medicine started, and why I became a golf pro instead of a doctor,” says Lee.

As a teenager, David won the Arkansas State High School golf championship and captained the University of Arkansas golf team for two years before turning professional. When he joined the PGA Tour in 1970, he quickly realized the existence of better technique than he had learned as a child. However, none of the high level pros could explain to him how their swings worked, even though they had developed superior mechanics. “Taking the golf swing apart on my own and understanding how it should ideally function, was the most difficult thing I had ever tackled,” says David.
