Where Technology Meets Tradition
As powerful as today’s technologies are, they can’t tell if you’ve had a rough day at work. Maybe that old shoulder injury is flaring up, or you’re using clubs that don’t quite fit properly. Indeed, there are many factors that can affect your golfing performance, and digging through them all remains firmly rooted in the “old school” traditions of observation, conversation and most of all, a genuine desire to help you accomplish your objectives. When it comes to golf techniques, most folks would agree that there is no one “right” way to go about it. Therefore, a swing cannot be evaluated on the basis of “right versus wrong” – it can only be evaluated relative to the results it produces; and how closely those results align with your intentions. In other words, without intentions, we have no real basis for a meaningful assessment. For these reasons, swing assessments and guided practice sessions always begin with a conversation about you: your goals; your expectations; your progress; your strengths & limitations; and of course, your intentions. What is it that you wish to accomplish?
But what about that “advanced”, “cutting edge”, “state of the art” technology? Where does it come in? Well, technology is intuitive. Interactive. Insightful. Engaging. Entertaining. Exciting. Stimulating. Maybe even a little bit addictive (in a good way). The bottom line is that technology ups the fun factor while adding challenge, measurability and accountability. Bring your thinking cap and a bottle of water. Come prepared to sweat a little, learn a lot and have some fun! See you at the corner of technology and tradition!
A “Class A” Member of the Professional Golfers Association of Canada since 1995, I have more than 20 years experience in golf coaching, instruction and program development. I take a conversational approach that emphasizes skill development through guided discovery. My goal is to provide you with an exceptional golf instruction experience that is both challenging and rewarding. If our time together exceeds your expectations, I hope you’ll tell your neighbor, the milkman, your brother-in-law and anyone else who’ll listen about the great time you had. And if it doesn’t, I hope you’ll tell me, so I can get to work on making it better.
