O’Hair finally finds his swing

By Ward Clayton, PGATOUR.COM

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- A start of 71-71 may not mean much to many in the field this week at THE PLAYERS Championship. But for Sean O’Hair, it’s a big success.

“I’m feeling better,” O’Hair said. “I’m still playing.”

The 28-year-old had missed five consecutives cuts and has no finishes better than a tie for 24 th this season. The biggest disconnect was that he had lost confidence in his swing. Therefore, he parted ways with swing coach Sean Foley and reconnected with original coach Steve Dahlby. He also brought back Steve Lucas, his father-in law and former caddie.

“My swing is feeling more natural,” O’Hair said. “I am hitting that cut out there and I like that. That’s the way I play. I was trying to hit a draw and that didn’t work. A lot of people were telling me they had never seen me hit it as bad as I had.”
