Monday was a Great One Day School

We had a great time during the One Day Golf School at Pendleton on Monday.  The weather was perfect.  The group of guys were very enjoyable and eager to learn AND I had a hot hand with the irons.

Like I’ve said on many occasions, the first thing on my mind when I tee it up is, “getting the ball within the six foot circle”. Of course once I get there I have to make it.  That’s why I spend most of my practice time six feet and in.  While in Tampa, I am going to video some putting drills so stay close.

OK I get to brag now.  I hit it within six feet on hole #1,2,4,5,6,and 7.  The best compliment I’ve had in quite while was when one of the golfers in the group said, “you’re making me sick!”

Yes golf can be fun when you’re playing your best but you still have to learn how to enjoy yourself on bad days too.

It’s Time To Get Started On Your Off-Season Improvements!

If it had it my way, I would be closed during the season and open during the off season.

Like any other sport today, it’s the off season that determines your performance for the coming year.  At the beginning of every off-season, Jack Nicklaus would visit his mentor Jack Grout.  They would literally start from the very beginning and go over every single detail of Jack’s fundamentals and re-build Jack’s golf swing from the bottom up.  I mean everything.  The very basics like grip, stance and alignment.  Even the most intricate details were not ignored or overlooked.
            This old Cuban has been giving golf lessons for a long time, and I have not been ‘playing’ the game I love.  So this year I have a goal to win “Senior Player of the Year” for the Middle Atlantic PGA.  If you have a goal of playing the best golf of your life in 2012 – let’s join together over the winter – and train for our goals.
            Attached, is a detailed discussion of what is involved with my winter training program – but let me provide you with a quick overview of the program:
Step 1:  Private lesson with video analysis and the mapping out of your personal off season program with exactly what YOU need to accomplish.  PLUS, complete charting of your golf club configuration.  Get more private lessons if and when you need them.
Step 2:  Newly formatted UNLIMITED workshop lessons.  I’m getting a portable simulator so we can play golf on the computer and compare your stats so we can monitor and measure your improvement.
Step 3:  Increase in hand strength and flexibility.  Easy exercises you can do at home.  No need to join a gym.
Step 4:  Monitored practice and play golf with me!  You will have my practice schedule and where I will be playing golf.  Join me on the golf course at no extra charge.
Step 5:  Brand new lesson kit that is specifically for this program only!  Chart your progress and document everything you did along the way, so you never forget what you learned.
