Many instructors have different views and thoughts on what makes a good golf swing. I believe an excellent golf swing starts with basic “tried and true” fundamentals. These fundamentals have been tested by the finest players and are the basis of every lesson I have ever given. These fundamentals, coupled with custom adjustments designed for each different body type and level of talent, delivered in concise, simple, and bite sized portions.
A positive outlook is necessary before any warm up session, competitive round, or practice session ever begins. A player can only hit the shot that sits in front of him or her.
Teaching with Track Man technology is imperative to the success of any golf program. Slowing the swing down using the TrackMan video component can help both student understand the difference between “feel and real”. Measuring spin rate, club path, clubface, and launch angles help both student get the most out of his or her swing.
Most short swings (short game) are very similar to the full swing but just not as long.
Golf swings, both full and short, need testing under extreme circumstances. The best way to learn if your swing will hold up is by competing in bigger tournaments with better players. Playing in these events will uncover weaknesses so a player can refine before the next challenge.
Good instruction paired with proper practice will help you achieve your golf goals.
