Joey D shoots Golf Channel segment with Pat Perez & Kelly Slater

Weeks after a Pat Perez win at the Bob Hope Classic, Golf Channel came looking for answers.

What changed? After seven seasons and two tourneys into year eight, why now?

A new and improved swing gets it's share of credit, but so does the application of a biomechanics routine, courtesy of Joey Diovisalvi.

With Pebble Beach providing the perfect backdrop, cameras were rolling when Perez, Joey D and nine-time World Champ, pro surfer Kelly Slater played a few holes and exchanged some witty banter Wednesday morning in Monterey.

Half the segment took place on the course, but the other was a 'behind the scenes' dawn patrol workout between player and coach. Cameras spent an hour giving viewers an in-depth look at the daily regimen of Perez and Joey D.

The segment is slated to air late March/early April, but Golf Channel will feature a teaser before Thursday's opening round at Pebble Beach. Tune in to the morning edition of 'Golf Central' or check back with the GolfGymBlog in the coming days as we'll host the clip here.
