|Kyle and Coach Jang at Hank Haney Golf Ranch
Kyle was coached by Coach Suckki Jang at the Hank Haney
Golf Ranch at Vista Ridge. Coach Jang worked hard with Kyle and Paul, fine-tuning Kyle's golfing game with great success.
Using the latest in video technology - Kyle would see immediately what was needed with driving, chipping and putting.
Coach Jang made Kyle a member at the Golf Academy and his support and encouragement have been a wonderful motivator.
He has incredible vision and passion .
The video monitor shows Kyle with perfect swing plane. The computer progam
allows them to analyze Kyle's swing and show him exactly how his form is throughout. It has been invaluable for Kyle
to see exactly how his mechanics should be. It is also used to time Kyle's swing and measure the tempo at four different
points in the swing. Kyle's tempo is at the same level as professional golfers.
If you watch the Hank Haney Project on the Golf Channel, you can see Hank use this with Charles Barkley
and Ray Romano, and Rush Limbaugh with Coach Jang in the background running the computer.
