There are “child prodigies” such as Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth, who make the leap onto the PGA Tour and achieve success at the early age of 20. And there are “late bloomers” like Tyrone van Aswegen. It’s a good thing that he decided to pursue a professional career in golf in 2004. Because at the age of 33, his first successes are on the PGA Tour.
After graduating from Oklahoma City University, van Aswegen played on the Sunshine Tour, on which he won twice. In 2010 he secured access to the Web.com Tour for the following season at the Qualifying Tournament. There he earned his ticket to the PGA Tour after another three years. In October 2015, van Aswegen scored his first success: he finished the Frys.com Open as a split third with 14 under par.
Over the past ten years, van Aswegen has repeatedly encountered Robert Baker in the golf world. He has already trained Nick Faldo and Ernie Els, among others with the training aids of Logicalgolf. Since van Aswegen started playing on the PGA Tour, the two have been working together more closely. The golf professional says: “In the past year Robert and I have intensified our cooperation very much. Many training aids don’t deliver what they promise, but with Logicalgolf’s products I have been able to improve my hitting moment considerably. I train my athletics and can thus consolidate the correct golf technique in the long term”. The work of Baker and van Aswegen is based on the innovative combination of golf and fitness that Logicalgolf has developed together with Technogym. Subconscious learning and efficient training have enabled van Aswegen to achieve noticeable improvements in his movement sequences.
For the first time in his career, he was able to assert himself among the elite of top players and made all five consecutive cuts in the current 2016 season on the PGA Tour.
