Great Speakers at the Heartland Golf Expo Presented by WinStar Golf Course
OKLAHOMA – Some of the top teaching and playing professionals in the nation will be sharing their insight at the Heartland Golf Expo presented by WinStar Golf Course this Friday and Saturday at the Centennial Building at State Fair Park.
Friday’s lineup includes former Tourist Jim Woodward of Oak Tree National followed by long-time Tour and Champions Tour stalwart David Edwards, one of the original Oak Tree Gang members. E.J. Pfister, a top 100 teacher who teaches at both Oak Tree National and Gaillardia, will be on hand Saturday.
In addition, long-time favorites Sean “The Beast” Fister, a three-time world long drive champion, teaching legend Marshall Smith of Miami, Okla., putting guru Andy Dillard of Oklahoma City and perhaps a special special guest or two will be on the stage. Other professionals will be giving free lessons throughout the show in the 100 foot hitting net, where golfers will also be able to see the latest in equipment from such vendors as Cleveland, Wilson, Adams, Nike, Tour Edge, Ping, Callaway and Titleist.
