A student wants lower scores and more prestige on the golf course whether he or she is a beginner, junior golfer, recreational golfer or a professional golfer. However, what works for one student may not work for another student. It is important to understand that everyone is different and to personalize teaching that meets the needs and limitations of each student. It is important to take into consideration physical issues, bodily structure, strength, balance, range of motion, etc. Also, the personality of each student must be considered.
The best instruction begins with discussing the students’ goals and how much time they have to devote to improving. What is he or she trying to do? Once the student’s needs and desires are understood, it is easier to apply a philosophy that helps the student learn and consistently improve in the long game, the short game, golf fitness, and the mental game; and to have fun while doing it!
