Currently working on with K.J.:
Short game and lag putting
Also worked on refining K.J.'s swing to use more shoulders and less arms. This has provided more consistency and power. The results have been evident in K.J.'s performance in 2010.
Steve Bann on K.J. (4/12/10):
“K.J has done a great job of balancing his practice routine to make sure his short game is sharp while his ball striking is the best I’ve seen it for quite some time”
