Whatever you vividly imagine, passionately desire, enthusiastically act upon, and sincerely believe; you can make happen.
A teaching and learning philosophy.
Mastering a new skill requires several steps
You must know what to do. Simply put this means you need to learn how the game is played and how the swing is executed. A good teacher can convey everything you need
to know to play golf, however knowing what to do is not the same as knowing how to do it.
You need to know how to do it. That means understanding the techniques and the proper motions of a quality golf swing. Posture, ball position, grip, balance, tempo
and timing must be clearly understood before they can be executed.
You must build the skills. Knowing what to do and how to do it will not make you a golfer. The teacher can help you with steps 1 and 2 but you need a coach to help
you through the skill building step. Skill building is a long slow process that requires spaced repetition and a focused view on performing the new skill correctly.
It must become a habit. Habituation is the process of making your skill a natural and automatic endeavor. Only you can create a habit by using disciplined
practice and focusing on the single element of skill that you are trying to habituate.
Courage to act. Knowing what to do and how to do it, possessing the skills and having the correct habits will not help the golfer that lacks the courage to trust. Fear, uncertainty and doubt will
destroy any golf swing.
Continual self assessment. With solid data and careful examination, decide what the next improvement will be, carefully identify the performance goal and expected outcomes. Start the process over
on the first step.
