Chris O’Connell, Plane Truth Golf, Matt Kuchar’s Swing Coach
O’Connell is the Director of Instruction for The Plane Truth at The Courses at Watters Creek in Plano, TX. A Golf Magazine Top 100 Teacher since 2013, O’Connell has also been recognized as one of the “Best Teachers” in the state of Texas since 2011 by Golf Digest magazine.
A 1995 graduate of the University of Notre Dame, where he was a two-time MVP and team captain, O’Connell played briefly on the PGA Tour—playing in four events— before turning his attention to coaching. Since 1998, he has mentored under renowned swing coach Jim Hardy, author of the best-selling golf instruction book that spawned the school’s name, The Plane Truth for Golfers. Hardy was also named the 2007 PGA National Teacher of the Year and is ranked among the top 10 coaches on Golf Digest’s “50 Best Teachers in America” list.
O’Connell’s students include seven-time PGA Tour winner and 2012 Players champion Matt Kuchar, six-time PGA Tour winner Hunter Mahan and Gavin Green. O’Connell also serves as the Vice President and Co-Founder of Plane Truth Golf, a business dedicated to training golf instructors and providing instruction to golfers worldwide through innovative teaching tools.
