Good Stuff Coming

By Wayne | blog

I wanted everyone to know that I just got back from 4 days at the fabulous Colusa Pines Golf Club in Fort Myers, Florida where I worked with my old friend and Champions Tour exempt player Gary Hallberg. I’m going to be doing a couple of videos on Gary’s swing and on the work we […]

Brandel is Off The Charts

By Wayne | blog

Chamblee is off the charts. I have to think his diatribes are calculated to foment controversy. I mean seriously; what basis does he have for not calling Tiger the greatest player if he wins 19 majors? What, you don’t like Tiger? You don’t like that he dumped Butch? You don’t like that he screwed everything in sight and humiliated his wife and children? You know what? You’re not alone.

2011: My Year in Competition

By Wayne | blog

My playing year usually starts in Orlando at the end of January when I play in the Isleworth Invitational, an individual pro and pro-am team event at Tiger’s club. My expectations are fairly low as we are coming from snow and cold and I am competing against mostly Florida guys, with the added attraction of playing the difficult Isleworth course at 7000 yards in spotty weather.

I was going through my older articles and found that I had written a good deal about Tiger before his downfall, then during and just after.  I thought it might be interesting for the WDGLC members to read through my thoughts to see in hindsight what I observed, then how my opinions changed after the […]

Taking It To The Course

By Wayne | blog

It is always the players job to organize his thoughts and prepare to use them on the course. A few days before an event I will spend more time on the course hitting shots (especially ones I am weak at) than on the range hitting balls (not that I don’t hit balls on the range, just not as much, and if I have a choice I will practice on the course).

The Ball Went Left, He Must Have Come Over the Top

By Wayne | blog

One of the problems with “old school” instruction (it’s trying to make a comeback: just ask Brandel Chamblee) is that the things it relies on, i.e. the sound of the strike and the ball flight, are subjective when it comes to ascertaining what produced them. Trackman has shown that our conventional ideas about why a ball flies the way it does are incorrect.

Hallberg, Mast Secure Champions Tour Cards With Help From WDGLC

By Wayne | blog

It is with a great deal of satisfaction and relief that I can report that two of my friends and students, Dick Mast and Gary Hallberg, have achieved exempt status on the 2012 Champions Tour by virtue of their fine play at the recently completed Senior Q-School. Hallberg finished tied for 2nd at 16 under par, while Mast finished tied for 11th, finally nailing down the 12th and final conditionally exempt spot in a playoff.
