Greetings golfers,

Who watched the Player's Championship? If you did, then what did you think of the course set up? With an amazing layout and some incredible holes it must have been incredible to play the course Saturday with wind speeds at 20mph and greens at 15 on the stimp meter. To put that in context that if you have a wooden floor at home have a put on it, that runs roughly at 16, although it doesn't have a slope!

It just goes to show HOW GOOD these guys actually are and when they shoot over par, it generally isn't a really bad technique, but a tougher course set up. Interestingly what can us mere mortals take from this, the thing I would take every time is they stick to their processes, get their head down and do the best they can on the course with what they have that day, they adjust their decisions and change their strategies.

Do you have a plan A, B or C on the course dependent on your swing, feel and touch that day? Do you focus on how to get the ball round and lower the score, or are you focused and persisting to hit shots that you skill set today or any other day doesn't allow?

If you want to learn more about LOWERING SCORES not just swinging the club better, why not speak to Dean or myself about our On-course Applied Sessions for May and June?

Coaching news

On-course Coaching - Real World Application

Can you afford to work with a coach on the course? Would having a skill session followed by time to apply it straight on the course be beneficial? Would be able to go out on the course give more context to the shot and open questions around you scoring better? If you think it would then sign-up to one of our on-course coaching options in May and June.

Option One with Head Professional Alan Fletcher

Acquire the skill then apply it! 30 minute skill acquisition session (based on your weakest area, putting, chipping, pitching, driving etc), followed by a 90 minute on-course coaching session looking at ways to APPLY this new skill, use it in game time and how to improve scores.

For May and June this is only £80.

Option Two with Teaching Professional Dean Saunders

Bring your friends and learn from everyone. Dean will be offering up to three people the chance to join him in a group coaching clinic. The cost is £70 split between the group, whether that be one, two or three people. Ask questions and let Dean talk you through different ways to play these shots.

To book either of these session email us here.
