The Coaching Process
Making sure you are enjoying and playing golf to the level you want is the number one priority. Getting you there in the quickest and most efficient way as possible is the pillar behind the coaching process. Whether you have had coaching in the past or this is your first time getting a coach on board, I want to walk you through the process. Real change and development is what it’s all about. Here’s how we do it…
It Starts with Defining Your Goal
What is the one thing that you want from your golf, that will mean by achieving it will make life better! This will look different for every player.
This is where you find out exactly what stands between you and your goal. We will use the best coaching technology to diagnose your swing and evaluate your game in a way that it can be measured. By using Trackman, 3D Motion capture and Slow-Motion Video Analysis we can identify accurately the fastest route to your goals. The depth of evaluation will depend on the goals you have set from the start. We may need to evaluate statistics and any physical characteristics that may link to your golf swing in order to create an effective action plan.

The learning process
There is so much spoken about in golf with respect to what to do but very little on how we can do it. A clear concept and sharp perspective on the task at hand is critical. Our concepts shape our golf swing and by changing our concepts we change our movement. Diving into the learning process with the right perspective will deliver the best results. Along the way there may be some road blocks as learning is rarely a linear process. Having support will relieve doubts and keep you focused on the end goal.
Setting out effective practice guidelines and structure
Effective practice programming is a key element that will enhance the process. Whether you have 20 minutes at home or 4 hours a day at the golf course to practice, having a plan in place is key. You will have the right drills, concepts and practice structure to put in place straight away.
Feedback loop and adapt when needed.
The feedback loop you have in between lessons is what keeps you on track to reaching your goal. Every repetition is either making us better or keeping us the same. One of the difficult aspects when improving a movement is the difference between what we Feel is happening and what is Really happening. This is another the main driver behind the online swing analysis. It keeps the feedback loop complete, so you arrive at your next session, ready to advance.
When all the work pays off its back to the beginning to set bigger and better goals for your game, because in the words of Tiger Woods,
We can always get better…
