My primary focus when teaching is to teach my students to play better “GOLF”, not to play better “SWING”. Over my past few years of teaching, I have quickly realized that to truly maximize success with my students, I needed to break the mold of normal golf “instruction” and become a golf “coach”. Far too often, lessons are strictly focused on how to hit the ball better. Don’t get me wrong; it is great to “hit” the ball better, but it often takes much more than that to break through the next threshold. The low handicaps didn’t become 0’s, 1’s or 2’s by just hitting the ball better. They did it by learning how to turn a bogey into a par or a par into a birdie; by learning to still grind out a good score when they aren’t hitting the ball well; by learning how to eliminate unforced errors. They did it by learning how to play better golf!
