Now the good news. When I say intensive, that doesn’t mean hours beating away at golf balls hour after hour. In fact, often the fewer times you hit the ball, the quicker you can improve, if going about things the right way. Intensive means coming along with an open mind, immersing yourself for a few days and getting a true understanding of the various aspects of the game. Most importantly, you will learn what you need to do and work on, for the long-term improvement and enjoyment of your game.
I hope you will give me the opportunity to help.
This UK Intensive Golf and Coaching Weekend is at Staverton Park, Daventry, Northamptonshire
While the professional game moves on into the stratosphere along with their drives, and golf equipment salesmen would have you believe you can buy equipment that will allow you to play like the Pro’s, I have seen very little evidence that convinces me, (for the vast majority anyway), there is much difference now to 50 years ago, when I first started teaching. Yes, modern technology has enabled club and ball design to move on and make life a little easier. It has transformed the Professional game, although bear in mind that the Pro’s are essentially athletes, enabling them to take full advantage of the technological advances. According to statistics, however, little has changed at club level. With a better understanding of our game, a pragmatic appraisal of our game, some practice and application, we Club players will all be better, more consistent golfers.
And, what about one’s short game? I have seen many tournaments won from the rough and the trees; Seve and Tiger were the masters of it. But, I have seen neither win when their short game was off. Whilst everyone gets a thrill out of a long straight drive, a tidy short game is what makes for consistent, better scoring.
So, let me help you understand how to make the best of your ability and aspirations. What you really need to do, to know, and how to perform at your best and more consistently. Sometimes this means a reality check, but in a kind way! I and old enough and experienced enough to provide it in a very constructive way!
