Colin Swatton celebrated as Jason Day raised the Wanamaker Trophy on Sunday, the prize for his PGA win. The trophy and $1.8 million.
With Swatton’s guidance, now going on 14 years as his swing coach and life mentor, Day made major championship history at Whistling Straits.
From his days as Jason’s instructor at the Hills International Academy in Queensland, Australia, to the hundreds of PGA Tour events they’ve partnered up for, Swatton has been his coach.
Great golfers have coaches.
Great football players have coaches.
Great hockey players have coaches.
Great baseball players have coaches.
Great basketball players… Is there a trend here?
My very first coach was Dan Sullivan and The Strategic Coach program at $5,000 per year in 1994! My wife, Beth, bless her for her unwavering support of me, said “We don’t have $5,000 to spare. Is this worth it?”
As time goes on, I use more and more coaches and invest tens of thousands every year in coaching. Often, over one hundred thousand.
Who is your coach?
