At the beginning of any lesson the difficulties that you might be experiencing with your game are discussed. By watching you hit several shots after you have warmed up, I can evaluate the swing and will be able to diagnose any faults. The lesson then follows a basic framework.
Firstly, I will give you a clear explanation of the faults that you might have accompanied with a demonstration by me to mimic what is happening during your swing. Once you understand the nature of the skill being taught I will help you to incorporate the necessary changes into your swing by the use of drills, exercises and physically going through the movements that we want you to try and adopt.
As with my adult lessons we will begin by discussing your current ability and experiance before warming up and hitting a few shots. From here I can evaluate the swing and build a framework around which I can structure your development both on and away from the golf course.
During lessons I will give a clear explanation of the faults that you might have accompanied with a demonstration by me to mimic what is happening during your swing. Once you understand the nature of the skill being taught I will help you to incorporate the necessary changes into your swing by the use of drills, exercises and physically going through the movements that we want you to try and adopt. You will leave the lesson with specific drills to work on away from the course.
Once you have become familiar with the new techniques and can hit the ball with new found confidence, it's time to introduce you to the course. During a playing lesson on the course we will encounter a range of different lies and playing conditions that I will show you how to make adjustments for, we will also look at course management, etiquette and the rules of the game. During the playing lesson we will both play shots with the aim of developing the way you think your way round the golf course.
This is an offer whereby you can purchase 5, 1 hour lessons and get one free. This course of lessons incorporates all aspects of the game including lessons dedicated to your actual swing and setup technique with both irons and woods. The remaining sessions will concentrate on your short game including, pitching, bunkers and putting according to your progress through the course of lessons.
