This weeks guest has been playing in Pro events for 40 years and has been teaching for 25 years.
He is the Director of Instruction at Lakewood Country Club He is here to share his journey in this wonderful game and give insight on his take on the golf swing. He has been a member of Golf Top 50 and Golf Digest Top 100.

Here are a few words from Wayne on the awards above directly from his website.

"In all the time I have spent as a teaching professional not one person has ever specifically observed my teaching in order to see if I were qualified for any list or award. All of these so-called “honors” are bestowed upon instructors for no real reason whatsoever other than reputation, political connectedness, or association with high profile players, either from the celebrity ranks or the PGA Tour. As far as I’m concerned, as soon as an instructor stops teaching beginners he or she ceases to be qualified for any honors or awards. And stop to consider exactly who it is that is bestowing the honor of being a “top” teacher: I’ll tell you who- magazine editors. If you had the experience of working with them to try to get a decent article printed with any sort of detail or information beyond a 5th grade level you would better understand the ludicrous nature of teacher lists.

So, if you can’t trust the national magazines, how do you know if a teacher has anything to offer? I would say that you have to look at the students and their successes, but then we fall into the trap of focusing on high profile players. It is certainly a skill to help the already great to become better. "

Wayne know that awards are not what makes a teacher great. It is their commitment to their craft and results.
