Playing for Money: Dick Mast Part 3

Dick stopped by Lakewood a few weeks ago after not seeing me for some time due to various injuries that had him concocting swings to avoid the pain he was feeling in his hips and back. As we do most of the time we get together we spent most of our time working on his set up, especially his posture. Dick has a tendency (and I know what this is like) to get a little lazy at address due to his back issues, and we usually work on getting him out onto the balls of his feet with more angle in his waist. This helps him feel his upper trunk rotation better and also tilts his hips, which helps them […]

Online Students: Paul Doherty

“Played golf when I was in my teens and early twenties I could putt and chip but was not a great ball striker. Played again between 30 and early 44 was a decent ball striker with driver, 2 iron up to 6 iron; generally not very good from 8 iron range and inwards also could not putt or pitch !! Now I’m 52 and I am playing again. Target is to get to low single figures, better than 5. I live in Kenya currently and have 20 acres of semi-arid land to practice on and a good amount of time available, plus amazing weather. Forty years playing golf and I really did not know how to cock my wrists I […]

Online Students: Justin Baker Part 3

“Alright Wayne I am still struggling. Shooting anywhere from 78 to high 80s. Ball striking is my weakness. In my opinion my sequencing is still off. I know my backswing is a hair under the plane and wrist bowed a touch, also my hands drop straight down and my right arm gets behind me with a release way out to the right. I could be way off but to me it’s still my upper body lean that kills me. During my backswing I feel no weight on my right foot or leg, and actually feel more on my left foot. Thanks again keep up the good work with the website.”   Justin has actually done a nice job of improving […]

Playing for Money: Brad Faxon Part 2

I’ve known Fax for a long time and have worked with him 3 or 4 times, but only one at a time with lots of time in between. I have always thought that if he could uncross the club at the top and simplify his release action, with his wonderful fluidity, rhythm, and ability to get the ball in the hole that he would be one of the top senior golfers anywhere. Up to now he has chosen to work on different things, or at least different ways to get to a better swing, but this year he reached the bottom of the barrel with his ball striking and had a total of one top-25 in 16 events. Thus I […]

“Wayne, new to your site within the past few days but I am impressed. Impressed enough to excitedly send you some of my videos. I am a frustrated scratch golfer with a love for the game and a passion for learning and improving my swing and game.   I played in college and still play high level am tournaments as much as possible (I own my own business so we have that in common) and I have 2 small children. I find time to practice as much as I can but don’t get to play as much, I save that for tournament time.   I am way too inconsistent with my game and I know it’s a result of the […]

Online Students: Colby Carter

Hi Wayne, “First, I’ve really enjoyed your videos, particularly on lowering in the downswing — great stuff. As you’ll see, I’ve been fighting a slight over-the-top move, along with being shut and across the line at the top and sliding forward in the downswing. The last few years, I’ve been working mostly on properly starting the downswing with the lower body, but haven’t been able to consistently keep the club on plane. I greatly appreciate your help”. Colby   From Colby’s email you can tell that he has been focusing most of his energy on his downswing. In the video I spend much more time on Colby’s backswing, as I believe that the pattern that emerges from the takeaway leads […]

Playing for Money: Tom Kite Part 5- Face to Face at Liberty National (with bonus clip)

I can’t tell you how cool it was to meet Tom after working with him on line for a few months. I was visiting my good friend Mark Diamond at Liberty National on my way to Ridgewood and the Barclays to work with Streelman when Tom asked if he could meet me there on Monday morning. Tom had been in Endicott for the Champions Tour event and drove down Sunday night. We had a great 4 hours together in which we worked on increasing the “catch” in Tom’s swing and trying to get the feel for that move to help deepen the hips and flatten the shaft more in transition. Tom is in great physical condition and could do anything […]

Playing for Money: The Putting Stroke of Brad Faxon

About 4 years ago I had the pleasure of spending the day working with Brad Faxon on his golf swing at the Old Oaks Golf Club in Long Island, NY. Before we spent time on the range we went out to play the course which was to be the site of Brad’s attempt to qualify for the U.S. Open that year. Armed with my trusty camera and tripod I filmed Brad hitting different shots, and although we were not going to work on his putting (for obvious reasons) I had enough presence of mind to film his putting stroke front and back just to log it in for future reference. Brad has been regarded as one of the best putters […]
