The golf season in Michigan got off to a somewhat slow start (it was snowing during the first two series of lessons I gave during April weekends this season), but now the golfing has begun to flourish.
Most of my students are taking lessons that parallel my online book, "Playing Golf Instruction Manual".
This 10-lesson learning program starts with some golf basics and then quickly moves to putting, then chip shots and pitch shots, before moving up to the full golf swing and the longer irons and woods. Success has been 100 percent as the students see very quick improvement and begin striking the ball very well!
With my more experienced students we are focusing on specific areas for improvement. These vary with each student so the instruction is somewhat specific, but some common faults are evident among even the better players.
One fault is assuring alignment. Even the experienced players misalign fairly often for iron shots and for putts.
Another fault occurs during the initiation of their forward stroke. They get to the top of their backswing and tighten the right hand (right handed players) and think "hit the ball" instead of "swing the club".
Once they get their weight shift correct and start swinging the club and not hitting at the ball they stay on plane much better and their accuracy and consistency significantly improve.
If you are in the southeast Michigan area and want to improve your game please contact me to discuss your goals and a lesson plan that will meet them.
If you are out of the area and are working on your game, my online golf instruction manual, together with the online training courses
with video demonstrations, can help you improve your skills and overall golf game.
Have a great summer.
if you have any questions.
Hit 'em straight!
