Everybody has a different ambition when they first come to see me for golf lessons. For beginners and high handicappers, it might be to just get the fundamentals right, and play the game consistently. A medium handicapper might be looking for ways to drop some strokes. And with low handicappers, it’s likely to be something more specific, which is holding them back from even greater things.
I’ve been working lately with a low handicapper, who plays off 5, and who was having difficulty with high cut shots.
This man had already tried several thing himself, after both looking things up online and listening to the advice of others. However, nothing he tried was working for him.
He then came to me, and explained the problem he was having. I was able to identify an issue that he hadn’t yet seen or addressed himself. It was to do with his wrist position and action during his shots. I got him to try the same shots in a slightly different way, and gave him some exercises to do too. He got in touch shortly afterwards to let me know the results:
I’ve been hitting a good few balls this week. The ball flight is starting to change to something I really like. The wrist position at the top, and not moving closer to the ball, is having a big impact. Great session! We will hook up again soon.
As always, it was good to hear of good results. And whatever you’d like to address in your game, I can help you get good results too. I look forward to hearing from you!
