Wilson sticks with swing

Dean Wilson's face is everywhere if you watch The GOLF Channel, if only for the abundance of Stack-and-Tilt commercials. Wilson has used the unusual swing for years, and a recent session with the swing's main proponents has helped him regain confidence in his game, which is a good thing, because he needs to regain his TOUR card.

Wilson, who tees off at 1:50 p.m. ET after sharing the Round 2 lead, lost his card after the 2009 season and had gotten into only eight events so far in 2010. Eight events, and only three cuts made. As a result, he's fallen to 522nd in the Official World Golf Ranking after hitting a high of 70th during his career year of 2006.

The reason behind his 65-65 start at St. George's Golf & Country Club? A long session with swing coaches Andy Plummer and Mike Bennett before the tournament.

"They worked hard with me on the Tuesday, Wednesday. And it carried over and struck the ball a lot better than I have been," Wilson said.
