Your Best Golf Lesson is on the Golf Course
I am even more convinced than ever that you MUST make an attempt to play golf with your instructor. If the instructor is NOT making that affordable to you then he/she is making a big mistake. That’s why I make the one day golf school with on course instruction available for only $99, which includes all costs like green fees, lunch etc. Your best lesson is on the golf course. Expired June 30th 2014.
The golf instructor AND the student get a false impression as to their development by swinging the same golf club over and over again on the range. I believe that what we are discussing here is a huge contributor to why the average golf score has not changed over time. There is more technology than ever, tons of folks offering themselves as swing gurus but still the average golf score is over a 100. (Of course it is also the fact that golfers are constantly entering and leaving the game.)
I played golf yesterday with one of our best members. I’m not saying who so forget it! What I learned was that I had to do a better job of communicating how important the following systems are:
1) Pre-shot routine
2) Alignment, Your alignment would be better if the pre-shot routine was effective.
3) A solid swing key to assure yourself that you get the golf club started on the right path on the back swing. Or, a solid key to make sure you do NOT revert back to your core swing fault.
4) Short game around the greens. You can hit balls until your hands bleed but if you cant get it up and down who cares.
5) Scoring shots from 80 yards and in. It’s a different swing than your full swing.
Now this will sound like a sales job but I should be having to open more and more one day school dates because every student should attempt to do the one day school at least once a month during the season, if they want to reach their full potential. More short game only schools should be available and I am going to work on that immediately. Maybe some workshops on course management and player management.
I hope we get such a response that I have to create more to meet the demand. It’s not for the money when we’re only charging $99 bucks. It’s for the results! The personal satisfaction of you playing a golf game you’re proud of and I had the opportunity of helping you do it.
