Hi there, my name is Max.
Welcome to ProGolferDigest.com.
As a former pro golfer playing in various mini-tour tournaments and other stints as a Pro golfer, I’d like to share what I have learned from other Pro golfers and famous teachers such as Tiger’s old coach, Butch Harmon who was my last golf coach.
Why am I not on the PGA Tour yet?
Well, I broke my finger and I ran out of funding and money to keep going as a pro and dove into the corporate world, wasting my youth and energy to make a living. My finger injury lasted almost 2+ years before I could play normal golf again.
Now, I am on my own at least, making money with blogs. My next goal is to make enough money so I can support my pro-tour challenge. I am currently getting ready to play some mini-tour events and Nationwide Tour Monday Qualifyings for 2012. I know it’s going to take me couple years to get to the PGA, but I thought I’d make a blog and tell you about my journeys there.
I will be doing swing analysis of pro golfers and also critiquing my own golf swing. By simply reading my golf analysis, you will learn everything I have learned from various pro golfers and teachers.
Why don’t you become a teaching professional?
Well, I don’t want to end up as a golf teacher. My goal has been always to “play” competitive golf and nothing else. Heck, I do teach golf right here, on my blog. That’s the least I can do to give back the 19 years of golf experience that I have.
My tips are genuine, from an actual mini-tour golfer, and Top 10 ’97 High School Californian golfer (or at least I was 10th in all California in high school), me, Max Lee. Your golf swing will improve more because my tips are personal and they work!

You can find me at San Bruno driving range off 280 if you are in SF Bay Area, maybe we can hit up a chat.
Can you do any trick shots?
Yes, I actually do hold the world record for most shots hit with 1 golf ball.
Here’s the video on YouTube:
Here’s the updated version where I hit the ball again while its in mid-air:
What’s your handicap?
Well, I haven’t had that much time to play lately since I have to make a living in front of my PC but I will shoot anywhere near par whenever I go out. (+1-3 handicap…) My lowest score is a 64 so far, which isn’t great by pro tour standards but yes, I will take most people’s money when we bet for skins. My goal is to shoot 4-6 under consistently on any course I play, which is something most pro tours can do.
Do you have any swing tips?

Will reading your blog help my golf game?
Here’s a comment from one of my long-time readers that proves you can get better at golf by reading my golf tips:
“Max, I had been studying Hogan’s swing on my own for the last few years. But not until I came across your website did I put all the pieces together. Thank you so much for giving back. I am hitting the ball straight with plenty of power and enjoying ever minute of golf. J.G.”
Thanks, J.G., that means everything to me, I will keep working harder and try to give you guys the best golf tips in the world.
I have a question?
Do you have a question on how to hit a certain golf shot or perhaps your golf swing?
Shoot me an e-mail at pro [at] progolferdigest.com and I will answer your question on my blog.
Also, if you want free swing analysis, upload your swing on YouTube and send me the link! (I will do a complete analysis on my blog too.)
