Golf Coaching West Sussex – Putting Clinic – Friday June 8th – 14.00 – 18.30

“If you want to be a great putter you have to begin by believing that great putters are made, not born” – Dr Rob Rotella

Putting is ‘Important’. It is very ‘Important’.

Putting often makes the difference between your best scoring rounds and the average ones, and often helps turn the poor rounds back into average ones. Therefore becoming good at this part of the game will help you enormously in your pursuit of your golfing goals.

You are invited to this clinic, to help you hole more putts;

This clinic will help you improve;

  • Technically – Improve your stroke mechanics!
  • Tactically – Improve your game sense and green reading!
  • Mentally – Improve your confidence and belief!

Some examples of what great putters do;

  • They miss once per round from 6ft and closer,
  • They only 3 putt once every 36 holes,
  • They don’t really miss inside of 4 feet,
  • They will hole 50% of putts from 8ft.

Now ask yourself this question; are you anywhere close to this? Reflect on your last few rounds If you are not, think about how many shots you could save?

Find this intriguing and challenging, then sign up to this clinic, improve your putting and more importantly ‘YOUR GOLF’

Friday April 20th – 14.00-18.30

The golf season is almost here. Get yours off to a scoring start!

You are invited to my first clinic of the year.

Ask yourself these questions?

  1. Are you hitting the ball well enough tee to green, but not scoring as well as you should or need?
  2. Do you duff, fat, or thin the ball around the green?
  3. Do hitting pitch and chip shots cause your worry or anxiety?
  4. Do you have any fear when hitting a pitch over a hazard?
  5. Are you losing to your playing partners because of their superior scrambling skills!?
  6. Are you missing greens, and not getting up and down enough?
  7. Fed up of throwing shots away around the green!?
  8. Do you want to shoot better scores and get your handicap down more?
  9. Do you ever wonder how the tour pro’s hit that lovely low spinning shot around the green?
  10. Or do you simply need and want a better short game for your best golfing year yet!?

If one or more of these statements is true, then my first clinic of the year is designed for you!?

This is not like your normal golf lesson with me, this is a clinic. A whole afternoon of short Game instruction and quality practice. Come along for a half day of expert instruction and practice that will teach you a lifetime of scoring skills.

Golf Lessons Sussex – Reflection on 2017. Set Goals and Improve in 2018! Do it.

Golf Coaching Sussex – Reflection on 2017. Improve in 2018! Let’s make it happen!

It’s that time of year to reflect. 2018 is now here, albeit rainy and windy, but another year lies ahead.  Can you make 2018 better than 2017? I think you can!

I’ve just been through this excerise myself, in my golf and in my coaching. I found it really beneficial, I think you will too!

I will look to do this with all of you when I next see you next, but till then I would encourage you start the reflection process yourself. I I don’t get the chance to see you soon, crack on anyways.

So the things I want you to consider, did you achieve what you wanted in 2017? If so what was your strategy and formula, is it worth repeating again? Can you improve it further?

Do you want more in 2018? If so what strategies do you need to change, what new formulas, habits and behaviours must you now consider?

Don’t be afraid to keep pushing to stay slightly above your current skill level; this is where maximise growth and learning take place. As I have described previously, get yourself in the ‘ugly zone’.  Brake out the comfort zone and embrace some new habits.

So lets consider the following in more detail:

What happened in 2017?

Celebrate your successes, what went well, what did you achieve?

For example, did you shoot a personal best, achieve a competition win, a handicap reduction, improved your G.I.R’s, beat a family member, play more, or practise better.

The list is endless and indidivdual to you, so have a good think about it to define at least 3.

Write down at least 3 accomplishments:

1.
2.
3.

What were your biggest disappointments of 2017?

To move forward, you have to be upfront and honest about what didn’t go well? We learn from our greatest failures and experiences.

Write down at least 3 disappointments:

1.
2.
3.

What did you learn in 2017? – What discoveries did you make, what did you really learn, big or small?

Write down at least 3 things you learnt:

1.
2.
3.

What do you want to learn and master in 2018?

You might want to learn to shape the ball, or you want to take your range game onto the golf course. You might want to become a better putter from 10 foot or learn to control your nerves and anxiety better in competitions.

What is important to you? And what will make you better?

Write down at least 3 things you want to learn:

1.
2.
3.

What do you really want to achieve in 2018? What are your key goals and aspirations?

Do you have some outcome goals, maybe improving your handicap, if so, what do you realistically think you can achieve? Could it be achieving a personal best, winning a club championship, or county order of merit?

What about some performance goals, improving distance off the tee, holing more short range putts?

And finally process goals – practising better, keeping statistics on your game, regular coaching, or just more fun!?

Consider what is important for you!? It’s your choice. 

Jot down some thoughts;
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

I can then assist you further and then create some leverage and structure behind each goal. Creating new habits is more around design rather than just motivation.

This whole process is so vital for your clarity, purpose, vision and motivation. I really recommend you do it. It will help you get through the ‘ugly zone’ and make the most of 2018.

People with goals succeed because they know where they are going. It’s as simple as that” Earl Nightingale

I would be really intrigued to hear your answers, so please let me know? Write down some thoughts and take action today!

Golf Coaching Sussex – Reflection of 2016. Improve in 2017!

It’s that time of year to reflect.
2017 is now here, another year, another challenge, will you make it better than 2016? Yes you will.

For some we have already started this process and reflected on the year passed and then set some defined goals for 2017. I will look to do this with all of you when I next see you, but till then I would encourage you start the reflection process yourself.

For example, did you achieve what you wanted in 2016. If so what was your strategy and formula, is that worth repeating again? Can you improve it further?
Do you want more in 2017? If so what strategies do you need to change, what new formulas and behaviours must you now consider? Don’t be afraid to keep pushing to stay slightly above your current skill level; this is where maximise growth and learning take place. I have just been reading a book by Dr Dave Alfred (Jonny Wilkinson kicking coach) and he calls this the ‘ugly zone’. We basically have to break out the comfort zone and break our current habits. But be prepared, although this journey can be fun, it will require energy and hard work.

So lets consider the following in more detail:

What happened in 2016?

Celebrate your successes, what went well, what did you achieve?

Golf Coaching Rustington

Week 8/8

Challenege 8: 5 Lives Draw Back

Purpose: This drill focuses on improving your ability to hole more putts from short (6ft <) and medium range (7-15ft). This skill is important for making par saves. Your better scoring rounds will always show a correlation in your ability to hole out and hole putts from medium range.

Scoring: Start from 3 foot away and hole out. If you are successful move 1 foot further back. Keep moving 1 foot until you miss. When you miss you lose a life. You have 5 lives. Once you lose a life, place a constraint on yourself and move to a different hole, which has a different slope/break. See how far you can get from the hole with just 5 lives.
