A. HUMAN
B. ACTION
C. TOOLS
D. GOLF COURSE

A1. GOALS
Set up a realistic goal why you play golf? I have a few examples...
One will like to be a single handicapper, some will like to be "commentator", most will be "knowledgeable" golfers.

Why is it important?
I see your goals as an engine that drives you to achieve expected results successfully with realism.
Golfers tend to be unrealistics about their goals.

A2. POWER
Strength & Flexibility are two important factors for a golfer. Where does power comes from?

Internal: One might possess that as a gift. Some people are born with strength while other dont.
For eg, Golfer A could easily lift a weight of 20kg with a hand, Golfer B could only do so with both hands and Golfer C is not able to do so at all.

External: Others build for it. Doing fitness & flexibility training and you have to be consistently working on it. Secondly, you need a coach to identify a suitable swing technique to unleash your power. Thirdly, you must always use the right equipment that suits you.
Dont forget the golf ball as an important tool!

A3. IDENTIFY CORE POWER
ARM: Some golfers use a 3/4 swing and able to hit straight and long. This type of golfers
use power from the arms.
SHOULDERS: New generatioin professional players like Anthony Kim and Camillo Vegas use upper
body strength for power.
HIPS: Power from hips used to be a popular technique.
LEGS: Using legs is not the easiet technique, but some top professionals adopt such style.

I encourage you to search...THE MISSING PART...in your POWER.

"Drive for show, putt for dough"

Many golfers in all skills levels have always discussed or argued which part - tee shot, short game, putting, etc is more important for the golf game. It is true that a certain part of the game is very important to a specific individual golfer. My opinion is all techniques and skills are equally important and need to be in balance during the golf game.

Just like our 10 fingers , which finger is the most important? Each finger has different functions. If we miss one or two fingers, the hand can still work but will it be effective like if we had 10 fingers? Therefore, we understand that all parts of the golf game are important. We need to know our weak points and focus in those sepcific areas to play better golf.

All techniques have to be improved evenly to play better golf.

B.6 ACTION
Comprehensive
BREAK 100
BREAK 90
BREAK 80
Teaching Pro
Tour Player
Ladies Player


At every stage there are diffrent learning skills but it is important to establish the learning process. A Primary One student would not possibly be able to take on a Primary Three student examination and expect to deliver results. The same would apply to the different teaching methods for golfers at different stages.

For Eg.
under Comprehensive - my aim is to have the golfer carry the ball out of the bunker in one shot - ANYWHERE out of the bunker

under Break 100 - my aim is to have the golfer carry the the ball out of the bunker in one shot - ONTO the green

Under Break 90 - my aim is to have the golfer carry the ball out of the bunker in one shot - ONTO the green with a 2 (TWO) putt distance

Under Break 80[/b] - My aim is to have the golfer carry the ball out of the bunker in one shot - ONTO the green with a 1 (ONE) putt distance

Under Tour Player - My aim is to have the golfer carry the ball out of the bunker in one shot - ONTO the green with a 1 (ONE) putt distance or even better - INTO THE HOLE.

Golfers can learn how to play like a professional (techniques, style, deliverables) and prepare for a long journey to sucess. BUT in this journey, the player can hit pitfalls where he/she may lose the enjoyment of the golf game itself. Thus, it is very critcal to understand what you want to learn, what you are learning and in the event ALWAYS enjoy the progress and eventually enjoy the fruit of your labor.

Know what you want and seek for its achievement.


I encourage u to search ... for THE MISSING PART in your game.
