The US Open at Pebble Beach was a momentous tournament with Gary Woodland holding off the challenge of Major machine Brooks Koepka to secure the title by three strokes.
This was the 35 year old’s first Major victory which will have delighted our columnist Pete Cowen who coaches the World No.25 and also teaches Koepka, who was looking to seal his third US Open in succession.
The iconic Yorkshire coach started working with Woodland late last year and believes he has everything required to be one of the best players in the world.
“Gary is like Brooks in that he is a big athlete who can hit the ball a mile,” Cowen said in an interview to the Sunday Telegraph. “In fact, I think he could be the biggest hitter out there, but he only goes at 80 per cent. If he can harness all that power, which he is learning to, and improve his short game, which again is coming, then it will be one hell of a package.
“In his first 27 majors he did not have a single top 10 but now he has had two in his last four and a win. He is 35, but there is so much more to come.”
Last month Cowen opened up his third teaching Academy in Dubai at Jumeirah Golf Estates so you can also take advantage of his teaching prowess and understand the pyramid of learning he follows that gives all players the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
Lot of love from new #USOpen champ Gary Woodland to his coach Pete Cowen. What with Oosthuizen, Stenson, McDowell, Koepka, Clarke and Willett, its another major winner to add to the Yorkshireman's expanding stable.
