In this episode of Orreco’s ‘Optimized’ podcast called ‘‘Pete Cowen Exclusive” we are joined by World Leading Golf Coach, Pete Cowen, for a fascinating and wide ranging conversation.
Yorkshireman Pete Cowen has been involved in professional golf for more than 50 years - first as a player and then as a coach. His methods have shaped the careers of the best players in Europe and the US, with almost 300 wins and 10 Major Championships in his career as a coach. It has made him one of the most sought-after coaches on the planet, working with Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka, Padraig Harrington, Gary Woodland and Henrik Stenson amongst many others.
In this exclusive episode of ‘Optimized’, Pete, who has been referred to as the “best teacher nobody knows” gives Orreco’s Colin Morrissey a rare but fascinating insight into his approach and work with some of the sports’ biggest stars.
In a wide ranging discussion they speak about Pete’s forthright approach with his players, his own history, both as a player and coach and how it shaped his views on coaching.
They discuss the trend of older players achieving success with wins in Majors and big tournaments over recent months and why we are seeing this happen. In addition they talk of players looking to actively gain muscle and power, what that means for the future of the sport and why it doesn’t always work out as planned.
Finally some insights for the keen golfer and advice for anyone aspiring to be a Chairperson!
