Dick Mast is now 41st on the Champions Tour money list with over $285,000, and you can see why he has had his best year ever as you watch these swings. He likes to move the ball both ways (and has a straight shot as well), so I filmed him doing one of each, and you can really see how the swing produces the shot he is picturing in his mind. The changes are subtle but definitely noticeable with the camera, and you can see the change in swing shape produce different impact alignments for each desired ball flight. When I first met Dick he wasn’t happy with the way he was striking the ball, noting that he […]

Since we have worked together I have qualified in three Champions events, the British Senior Open, and 12th at The Champions Tour School. Honestly if […]
In our one-on-one sessions we spent most of our time on the subject Dick was most interested in, lower body movement and use of ground forces (pivot compression) in the transition and forward swing. It was the first time he had been encouraged to incorporate aggressive lateral movement into his swing, and he found it liberating (and powerful).
