Mahan stays centered over the ball (little or no movement to the right in the backswing) and works his arms deep across his body. Sound familiar? His best attribute is his brilliant use of his lower body, which more than makes up for his overly bent right arm.
Tiger Woods Unveils Swing Change at 2010 PGA Championship
A great talent from a young age, Ernie’s rhythm and release action have remained pretty much the same as he has made a few changes to his setup and backswing.
2010 British Open Champion Louis Oosthuizen: A swing as conventional as Ricky Fowler’s is not (no knock on Ricky Fowler). An instructor could simply use this as a model to demonstrate proper mechanics and efficient generation of power. As good as it gets in this day and age.
It’s been a few months since Stan, my longtime student, has graced my teaching bay. Stan is the epitome of the struggling golfer, taking lessons here and there, trying tips from magazines and television, falling victim to every infomercial promise.

Talking and theorizing about the golf swing is easy: playing golf is hard. Here I’m at the 2010 CPC (Club Professional Championship) hitting it poorly in a practice round, then utilizing the video camera to try to fix it up.
Jeff Overton had a good tournament at the AT&T recently. Despite what Peter Kostis says there are thing I really like about Jeff’s swing.
Lee Westwood Swing Analysis
If you have read my articles in the past you might remember Stan, my imaginary student. I know I’m doing well with Stan the character when I’m asked “Hey, Wayne, is that a real guy?” Or, “I think you’re writing about me again, aren’t you?” The truth is that Stan is kind of an “everyman”, or, as it were, an “every-student”, and I draw from my daily experiences on the lesson tee when I give Stan his voice.
