Rickie Fowler has had a transformation when it comes to his golf swing.  He was a good player sitting on the edge until he approached Butch Harmon and asked for help.  That was probably the smartest thing he ever did.  Butch transformed Rickie into a player who is now considered one of the “Top 4” players. I cannot wait to watch the Masters this year, with Rickie, Jordan, Jason, Rory, Dustin, Bubba, Adam and Justin.  Of course, there is a boatload of talented rookies as well!  , together with Rickie Fowler, plus ‘s great pictures, has put together two swing sequences of Rickie.  One pre-Butch and one after.  Take a serious look. Maybe, just maybe, these can help your game!

Getting that first move right gets my whole swing on track. Now I don’t need to re-route the club to the inside on the downswing, which required a lot of timing. I feel like my swing will hold up at crunch time. I’m not on or off like I used to be. It’s excellent now, and that’s a great feeling to have. I can’t wait to get back in contention in the majors. Using the two driver sequences here—the top one from 2010,

BEFORE: TOO MUCH BODY TURN TOO EARLY.

Rickie used to drag the handle back and turn his hips and shoulders very early in the swing. The clubhead would lag behind the rotation of his body. Also, his ball position would tend to creep too far back, which contributed to that early turn—he was trying to load up behind the ball. —Butch Harmon

AFTER: EARLIER WRIST SET, CLUB STRAIGHT BACK.

Danny Willett is already a star on the European Tour, and I’m pretty sure it won’t be long before he makes his presence known on the PGA Tour and in major Championships.  His pedigree is impressive. #1 amateur in the world in 2008, Walker Cup member, and 3-time winner of the European Tour.  He came close in the British Open this year, so look out for this young man in 2016!  This is a great swing sequence that amateurs can really learn from.  Thanks to  of Golf Digest for the captions, and thanks to  for the great pictures!

Danny Willett doesn’t always go out of his way to make you feel comfortable, and that might be why he’s such a tough competitor.

As his teacher, Mike Walker, says, “He was the No. 1 amateur in the world in 2008, so he expects a lot of himself. He’s not unfriendly. He’s single-minded.”

A 2007 Walker Cup standout from England, Willett had to learn patience as a pro. It wasn’t until 2012 that he captured the BMW International, the first of his three European Tour titles. Since then, he has put himself in position on Sunday many times. He won the Omega European Masters in July, and a week earlier, he found himself one stroke out of the 36-hole lead at the British Open at St. Andrews, and wound up finishing T-6, his best showing in a major.

As Willett refines his swing, mainly working to eliminate the miss to the left, look for great things. “He’s become a much better putter this year,” according to Walker, who says he gives Willett drills that would help the average golfer, including hitting balls with only the right or left arm. “They magnify the problem so we know what to work on,” Walker says.

I had no doubt in my mind the moment Rickie Fowler started working with Butch Harmon that this was a recipe for success for Rickie!  Butch is not a “mechanical” teacher, and that’s what Rickie needed.  Just simple changes that would make a tremendous difference to his game.  It is only a matter of time before he wins a Major!  Thanks to  of Golf Digest, in collaboration with Rickie Fowler, for producing this interesting article!
