Coach Suckki Jang
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.

Chris Ownbey and Kyle

Where Golf and Fitness Meet

In 2009, Kyle began working with Chris Owenby at the Golden Bear Golf Center. 

Chris is the Golf condtioning specialist. and  he is certified by the Titleist Performance Institute and combined with his own education in nutrition and health, and his understanding of the specific needs of the golfer, he is the perfect addition to Kyle's training. 

We can't stress strongly enough, the importance of Chris' influence on Kyle and we highly recommend you incorporate his golf fitness in your junior golfer.  If you can't come to Golden Bear Golf Center - please go to his website.  He has DVD's available for you as well as other valuable information. 

Chris provides golfers of all ages with a safe array of exercises and stretching routines designed to increase strength, flexibility and improve balance.   The improvement is visible and since no fancy equipment is involved, it is easy to continue the workout at home and when we travel to tournaments.

Thanks Chris!!!

Can you believe how much Kyle grew in 4 years???

Kyle works with Chris to strengthen the core

When Kyle was only 3, he began working with Coach Wesley Francis, when he was the golf pro at Riverchase Golf Club in Coppell.  Wesley's unending patience with junior golfers is one of his strengths and he has been not only Kyle's coach, but I am honored to say Friend.  He has supported Kyle at every level, including travelling with Paul and Kyle to his first World Championship in Williamsburg, W. Va in 2005, where he was the highest ranked 5 yo in the 6 & Under Division after only 2 years of coaching.

Wesley continues to train junior golfers and knows what it takes to get them tournament ready.  US Kids allows golfers to begin competing at age 6, getting invaluable experience and the sense of accomplishment that will last a lifetime.  Check out his website for more information.  Coach Wesley can be found at the Golden Bear Golf Center in Carrollton, TX.
