Mr. DeFracesco, I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting you yet, but just wanted to let you know I shot 79 yesterday for the first time breaking 80 thanks to the information and analyses of golf swings you have shared online, combined of course with my background in basketball, football and baseball. I’ve had more practice than I should have had this past winter here in Boston, as I was so excited to learn about Mr. Hogan’s swing, and your validation of controlled lowering of the head through the back and down swing, as well as the initial movement of hands in the down swing. I’ve never hit the ball so solid, the compression principles you speak of are really […]
Hi Wayne, Thanks for analyzing my swing, it was very informative and helpful. I played the last two weeks and shot 76-80 (tough courses) I was very happy with my play the courses I played were both over 7500 yards and in very wet/cold conditions. The Swing is coming along very nicely, My practice sessions have been very productive and my shots are getting a lot tighter in shot dispersion, just gonna keep being patient with it and work hard.. I have set my goal at the end of the year to try and qualify on the Asian tour, I have always wanted to play as a tour pro since I was young and even thou I am a little […]
Wayne: Thanks for the reply. So many questions and so little time! Just got in from the course after the easiest 74 I’ve shot in a long, long, time. I’m all in and have bought / watched / practiced / videoed myself doing the start – stop drills on the PCS DVD’s and especially the impact drill. Ditto how to “flatten” the shaft/clubhead back to the address shaft plane by working the right arm onto the right chest as the hands fall. Brilliant!. I’m not totally there yet as it took me about 20 range hours to even begin making reliable progress. It’ll be more weeks till I’m even remotely close to having the correct hip action ingrained to some degree […]
I found your site by accident while surfing through golf videos. I was intrigued by your analysis of a swing and searched for you on the Internet. I found your site and quickly joined as a member. The next several evenings were spent watching video after video. I learned more about the golf swing in three days then I had learned in almost 30 years of playing and lessons. Many of the conventional myths, such as keeping your head level, have been shown by you to be false by the use of videos of great players over several generations. With much enthusiasm, I have begun to work on correcting the swing myths I had been working on. My father is […]
Dear Wayne Thank you so much for the help with my golf swing this year. As you know I have been to most of the top 50 teachers in the U.S over a 30 year span. I have learned a lot from many of these reputable golf instructors. But I must say that you were able to not only pinpoint the main problem areas, but were able to explain and demonstrate exactly what I needed to do to correct them. I can confidently say that I am striking the ball with control better than ever. 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 […]
Wayne, Thought you might like to know that Ryan has signed a letter of intent to play golf at Cameron University in Oklahoma. They are a D2 power having made the NCAA D2 championships something like 5 out of the last 10 years. Ryan won his district championships by 11 strokes and in 8 tournaments this spring his worst finish is 4th, with 3 wins and 2 runner up finishes. He is killing the ball. Takeaway right up the plane and although not perfectly square at the top, he’s not closed anymore. Most importantly he’s bought into the compression deal. He’s always had great tempo, now with the focus on the speed coming from the midsection and his legs using […]
Wayne and I have known each other for over 30 years. He has the rare combination of being a fantastic player and excellent instructor. Playing and teaching seem to be mutually exclusive in today’s golf world but Wayne has been able to maintain his playing ability while teaching players of all levels. He has been a huge help to me and most importantly hasn’t “tied me up in knots’ when I have to play in a PGA Tour event. Brad Faxon, 8-time PGA Tour winner and 2-time Ryder Cup team member
Wayne has been my exclusive instructor for almost ten years. During that time he has taken my game from a weekend golfer with a 5 handicap, to a professional level with a handicap well below scratch. Before Wayne I had no aspirations of college golf, but four years later I found myself at Wake Forest University, a major division 1 program in the ACC, on a golf scholarship. Almost everything I have achieved in the game of golf I owe to the skills and knowledge that Wayne instilled in me. He has a way of conveying his his thoughts and breaking down the fundamentals that makes it simple to implement in your own game. He is great with golfers of […]
Very seldom when looking for an golf instructor do you find one like Wayne Defrancesco. Some teachers can teach you to swing, some can teach you to chip and putt, and some can teach you to play. Usually they are only good at one aspect of golf. Wayne is not only good at all of these things, HE IS AN EXPERT AT ALL THESE THINGS!!! If you want to learn from one of the best in the country you need to see Wayne. Not only can he play, he really loves to teach and see you improve. If he can help and old dog like me get better I know that he can help you. Brian Wilson, PGA Tour Member […]
Wayne DeFrancesco is a great swing coach with an amazing knowledge of the golf swing. He is not a teacher that forces his students all to fit into the same mold, but one who takes what they have and makes them better. He has helped me with all aspects of my game and I credit him with making me the complete player that I am today. Not only has he helped me with my swing but his playing abilities have allowed us to discuss playing strategies as well. I have played in six USGA championships including 3 US Juniors and 3 US Amateurs, recently won the prestigious Cardinal Amateur and have been a starter at LSU for 3 straight years. […]
