Wayne D Students Gillespie, Eure Get Through 1st Stage Web.Com Qualifying

By Wayne | blog

Both players responded to the pressure and fired nice final rounds to advance to second stage, where the pressure only increases. Making it to the final stage is a key moment in any professional’s career, and missing guarantees another year of chasing qualifiers and mini-tour events. There really is no getting around the importance of getting through second stage, and there is no pretending that it is just another tournament.

Final Report on the 2017 Senior PNC

By Wayne | blog

I learned long ago that no one wants to listen to a golfer recap a round shot by shot. I’ve been known to stop people (not my students) who start in with the commentary and say, “hold on, should I grab a cart?” However, since this is my website and part of the reason you subscribe is to see what’s on my mind when it comes to just about anything regarding the game I will give you a detailed account of my second two rounds (you can read about the 1st round in my previous blog).

At the Senior PNC: Heading into Round 2

By Wayne | blog

My one-under 71 in round 1 is the first under -par round I have shot in quite some time.

Happy Thanksgiving from Wayne D.

By Wayne | blog

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all the participants and especially the subscribers to WayneD.com. You don’t know it, but you a big part of what has encouraged me to continue to strive to understand the swing and to come up with better ways to get you to improve. You are also instrumental in keeping me playing and practicing, which makes sense because I have always believed that to truly know what you are talking about when it comes to utilizing a golf swing as opposed to theorizing about one you must not only care about it but you must do it and keep score.
