US Open winner Gary Woodland testament to the teaching of Pete Cowen

The Yorkshireman took over full-time coaching duties for Gary Woodland at the end of last year. Brooks Koepka, who ultimately failed to catch Woodland at Pebble Beach, has been a long-term Cowen pupil. “I did the warm-up with Gary and he said that he had never felt more at ease with his swing,” Cowen said. “That’s my job done then. Off to the airport. It’s like a racehorse trainer. You do your work on the gallops, then you can’t do anything when they’re racing.” Gary understandably credits Cowen as a key influence on the ending of his major drought at the age of 35. “Pete’s been amazing for me,” the new US Open champion said. “He’s not really a teacher; he’s a coach. He tells you: ‘This is the gameplan. This is what we’re going to do.’ And then it’s up to me to go out and do it.
