Self-described disrupters, Matthew Wolff and his swing coach, George Gankas, have been working together for nearly six years. Wolff burst onto the PGA TOUR scene in 2019 winning in his third professional start after a storied career at Oklahoma State. Gankas has built an impressive following on Instagram dissecting his student’s swings for players like Wolff, who owns one of the most unique swings in the game.
The two reflect on how they first met, discuss Wolff’s swing (2:01) and laugh about some of the criticism each has received (3:28). They discuss the 20-year old’s length off the tee (5:43), the vocabulary Gankas has created with his group of students (9:51) and the weight of expectations on a player with Wolff’s talent (11:37).
