    I love Gainey. Now I like him even more cause I can respect his belief system, which is essential to make it on tour. Great insight in regards to shut faced players and needed shaft lean at impact. Also enjoyed the lag and lowering vs throwing it and standing up commentary. Keep up the great work down there.

    Rob –

    So great to see these posts. It is unreal how much you have helped my golf game. I can’t wait to get back to Reynolds to work with you again. For the first time in 25 years of golf, my game is progressing forward and my scores are dropping dramatically. Thanks again!

    Great comments. I’m a big fan of Gainey. His swing brings to mind days when you could tell who a player was from 300 yds away just by looking at his swing.
    It takes special type of teacher to recognize that good results can be accomplished without the textbook swing and/or body type. Kudos to you, Rob, for having that talent.
