Just got the sad news he passed away from a long battle with cancer. Dart was a big part of Isg as a contributing teacher for many years.

I don't have further details at this point but will update when I can.

We pass on our sincere condolences to friends and family.

Very sad to hear.  Helped a lot of people on here find their 'Light Bulb' moments.  Not everyone agreed with his push on the TGM model of things, but not everyone agreed with Brad Hughes or Scott and his love of kinetics.  The one thing that can be said however about Paul was that no one could fault his knowledge, ability and willingness to help others.  RIP Paul.. you will be sorely missed in the golfing fraternity.  :(

A very generous man

Really sad to hear, know a few blokes who benefitted from Pauls' tutelage & knowledge. Condolences to all who loved him. :)

Sad news to hear Paul has passed away. He was a great help to me while learning about TGM. He was very generous with his time and gave great advice.

RIP Paul.

This news saddens me a fair bit as I'm sure it does to a few on here. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

Was the best golf mentor/coach/advocate that I ever had the Privilege of getting lessons off. Rare breed indeed.

RIP old mate. 😔

RIP Paul Hart aka Dart.

Yes technically the man knew his golf stuff, but the sum of the man extends beyond his professional pursuits.

He was more than willing to explore and share his knowledge on here and ISG has suffered a little since his departure from being a regular contributor.

Thoughts are with his friends and family.

the big C is insidious.
