Sorry, don't know where I got that idea!! clown


time to go on a diet.....but its tough cos i got lots of kakis who love food and continuously tempt me on FB Smile

but seriously i work with all kinds of golfers and i have seen some improve leaps and bounds over a short period. it boils down to their aspiration and their willingness to learn. it takes 2 to slap but even the best coach cannot produce the best golfer unless the golfer has the will, and in our context the time to train.

I agree with DRGjnr72,

Offering a trial does give the best chance for explanation and allowing the student to ask as many questions as possible. That's why I do offer a free swing analysis.

However, I'm a great believer in asking lots of questions myself to get a better understanding of the students concept of the golf swing. That explains a lot to me as a coach as to why that particular student has that problem in the first place.

It could be a misunderstanding from another coach, watching too many youtube videos, reading too many basic magazine articles...... Golf swings cannot be fixed without actually seeing them.

Quote Jack Nicklaus - Practice does not make perfect, it makes permanent.....

Again I'm agreeing with DRGjnr72 - most recreational golfers have lessons to improve. But without proper constructive practice it's hard to get results. I teach all levels of golfers from Beginner to Tour Professional. But I don't teach the beginners any different from Tour Professionals. I do use a particular model swing, and I know the old adage that everybody is different in size, height, ability. BUT most golfers have two arms, two hands, two legs and a bit between the ears.

So with full explanation, demonstration and video all my students have seen improvements. It's up to them then to practice away from the lessons.

Just my two cents.

Cheers and Happy New Year!!!

Here are some perspectives from coach..

1) students that cancel or skip lessons
2) Pay in time

" Best " students have both......

Very Happy
