Tour Swing Coaches

If you had the chance to have any Tour Swing Coach, who would you pick and why? Current or "retired".

 

I would pick Butch, several of his students are quite good and one is especially talented!

I’d take Butch. Not so much a lesson, but I’d love him to watch my swing and make a few notes. He’s a great coach because he’ll work with what you have as opposed to try and mold you into a system. 
 

After my “lesson” I’d want to have dinner with him, his stories are legendary.

David Leadbetter.

 

I don't think he could make my swing any worse which is his MO.

He has a unique approach to the game, that's for sure.

 

 

 

He takes offense the "overuse" of beta blockers on tour.

 

He's about as close as we're ever going to come to the giftedly insane dipping their toes into the mainstream ever again.  He's also the Granddaddy of the modern golf swing.  AND, most importantly, he will help you appreciate Gary McCord.  Good call on Harvey Penick, btw.

Some years ago, at Turnberry, I was two practice bays away from where Bob Torrance was coaching a junior.

 

Listened intently, but I still failed to catch 80% of what Bob said. 🙂

 

Underrated coach.

 

Harrington pretty much never found his former success moving from Torrance.

 

Also his son Sam Torrance was a 21 time winner on the European Tour as well.

Either Robert Rock or Pete Cowen.

 

Rock because he's coaching alongside currently playing on tour so can help with more than technical work, just maybe not putting. Plus the hair.

 

Cowen because I like his concepts and use a couple of them already.

Nah.  I hear she has the driver yips.  Rumor has it, that she is using a shaft that is too stiff.

Oddly enough I would like to spend some time with Mac O'Grady.  Just to hear the philosophies he has.
