Harmon works with the game of golf's biggest stars. That list includes Phil Mickelson, Nick Watney, Natalie Gulbis, and Dustin Johnson among others. Watney is a fellow Las Vegas Golf Region resident who led the FedEx Cup points list for much of the 2011 PGA Tour season. For more than a decade, he has been named the best golf instructor in America.
"I began working with Butch through a friend, Sam Reeves, who I met in Fresno where I went to college," Watney has said about Harmon in previous interviews. "… I really honestly believe that he's the best teacher in the world. And I think his track record shows that is the case. So I'm very, very lucky to work with him."
