GOLF MENTALITY

EXCEPTIONAL GOLF 

To say I teach golf would be a simple statement.  My goal is to work together to create a plan that will result in you enjoying and learning the game of golf.  It all starts with the basic fundamentals, grip, aim, stance, and posture in developing a consistent golf swing.

If you have the proper grip and proper set-up, you can be taught:  Jack Nicklaus

Few golfers today have had any type of structured learning. They go to the range and hit balls without any goal or method in mind hoping they will get better.  When actually they are training themselves poor golf habits.

To become an exceptional golfer there must be an understanding of three principles; Practice, Play and Process.  We will work together to get the most out of our practice time. Learn to play effective golf so you can break 100, 90 or 80.  Learn your golf swing, know your faults and how to correct them.  Learn how to take your practice (work) to the course. Make golf enjoyable and fun. 

The average golfer's needs and physical abilities are likely to be the opposite of a tour player's. The typical amateur needs more clubhead speed and needs to draw the ball.  The average golfer needs to swing the club rhythmically, allowing the clubface to rotate open on the backswing and closed through impact, thereby creating extra clubhead speed. This golfer needs to train the body to react  to the club--instead of overcontrol it--and move more adeptly with the feet and legs, keeping the hands and arms relaxed so the club swings freely.

Seven tips to taking a Lesson:

1. Agree on instructional objectives: 

Set a goal, put a time frame on it, consider your ability and how much time and effort you will devote to the undertaking.

2. Be an active learner:

Ask questions. Learning is the learner's responsibility.

3. Find a comfortable matchup of teaching style and your learning style:

To do this, ask yourself the following. How do I best learn?

Do you like detail, or the big picture? Are you a better learner with words, pictures or feel?

Communicate your desired style to the teacher you have.

4. Avoid false modesty, but beware of pride and ego:

Be objective and honest when the professional asks you questions about your game.

Don't hide weaknesses, including health or physical problems, or exaggerate strengths.

Don't be afraid to ask questions if you don't understand.

5.  Avoid non-compliance:

When you get a golfing prescription, take it, give it a chance.

6.  Practice, Practice, Practice:

Failure to practice or letting your practice become aimless and disorganized not only wastes the practice time, but the lesson time as well.

7.  Patience, Patience, Patience:

Don't expect miracle cures. Improvement takes time. Swing patterns are habits, and habits don't change quickly.

The lesson thus becomes a team effort. The professional is sharing, directing and guiding, while the student needs, most of all, to be assimilating, striving and cooperating.
