Your Plan for Improvement

Let’s look back at your 2015 Golf Season. Has it played out the way you wanted? Did you reach your scoring or handicap goals? If so, congratulations! If not, it’s definitely not too late to make some improvements, and it’s a great time to draft your game plan for continued improvement!

Let’s begin by analyzing your game from what worked great, to what needs the most improvement – it’s not always as simple as it sounds! Many times, a student will tell me their putting is bad, and after watching them on the course, we’ll find it’s not their putting, but rather their chipping, or iron play that leaves them with few “makeable” putts. Or, while you may think your driving is holding you back, but it may be the wrong shaft in your driver that is causing inconsistency!

With an entirely new selection of Coaching Programs being launched (see below), you will be able to choose a program that fits your budget and goals!

Allow me to help you look at your game in a new light and structure a complete plan to improve! Whether we do a Flightscope analysis, a 2-hour on-course lesson, or a combination of full & short game testing, there are many options to find what YOU need! If you’ve never experienced an on-course lesson, many students feel (as do I) that a 2-hour lesson on the course can help you understand how to shoot lower scores without even changing your golf swing!

Tip of The Month
Putting

Most golfers would agree that putting is not only the most important club in the bag – it should be the easiest! We don’t have to get the ball in the air, you don’t need any physical attributes to be a great putter, and it only involves 2 factors: Distance and Direction. So why do so many people struggle with the putter?

I see people searching for the magic thought on the putting green instead of working on the factors that will really help them make more putts consistently! There are 3 main areas you need to address to become a great putter.

First is your technique – do you have a proper setup, alignment, and grip that will allow you to make a repeating stroke? Here’s a simple tip to check your position. Take an old CD and turn it upside down, place the ball in the hole in the center, and address the ball – do you see your eyes in the CD? Are they over the ball? Inside? Outside? They should be over the ball or slightly inside and your eyes need to be parallel to the target line! Recommended training aids: Eyeline Putting Mirror, True Pendulum Motion

Second, distance control – great putters roll the ball the proper distance letting the ball come to rest close to the hole. Getting good at distance control will eliminate 3-putts and help you generate better green-reading. To improve your touch & feel on the greens try these drills: Putt to the Fringe – Start in the center of the green and roll putts to various spots on the fringe. Try to stop the ball before it rolls onto the fringe. Look at the Hole – roll putts from 15-40 feet while looking at the hole. The first few putts will feel awkward, but after a few strokes, you’ll notice your athletic ability take over and the putts will stop near the hole.

Third is aim – it’s rare that I see a student who aims the putter where they think they are aimed! If you practice with poor alignment, you are going to be forced to make a compensating stroke to get the ball on line. This will lack consistency and disrupt your pace. Drills/Aids to help with aim: Chalk Line – take a chalk line (you can purchase at any hardware store) and find a level putt. Drop the line on the green and roll putts along the line. Focus on the aim of the putterhead and starting the ball along the line.
