As the late Ben Hogan once said: “golf is not a game of good shots. It’s a game of bad shots.” What does that mean?
The game of golf was not meant to be played hitting perfect shots every time, but rather minimizing and managing our miss-hits. I believe in and teach this very theory.
Most golfers don’t have the time to build a great swing, but with guidance and instruction, everyone has a chance to produce their own solid repeating swing.
I believe that the golf swing starts with a solid foundation, which every golfer can accomplish no matter what level they are on. A solid foundation consists of posture, grip, stance and aim, and ball position. Once the foundation is established, a golfer has the ability to produce a consistent repeating swing. Without it, a golfer is doomed before the club goes back.
To help reinforce my instruction, I like giving my students simple drills to perform. I believe swing drills help simplify more complex movements that occur in the golf swing. Drills help to ingrain the proper movement of the swing and make the swing feel more natural.
My main goal as an instructor is not to build robots who all swing the same, but rather to help the student learn about their own swing. I want my students to know why and how I am changing their swing so that they can learn from it and help themselves later down the road.
