JUNE Orlando Golf School - 5SK

13 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone!

Looking to put together a golf school / clinic sometime towards end of June.

If you can all decide when would be the best date to fit the majority of golfers here at TST I can set something up.

I'll let you guys figure out the best potential date or even dateS.

The format will be close to as follows:

9:00 – 9:30: Quick Video Capture of your swing.

9:30 – 10:30: Discussion and education about the PureStrike 5 Simple Keys: the Proven things that ALL great ball strikers have in common...Q&A.;

10:30 – 12:30: Hitting balls to incorporate your priority piece.
12:30 – 1:30: Lunch and and review changes you’ve already made.

1:30 – 4:30 Continued work on range with implementation of drills and Pitching instruction.
4:30 – 5:00-ish: Wrap up, Before and After pics and videos, Q&A;

Enjoy and look forward to seeing some of you soon.

James

If anyone is in the Orlando area, or has a good excuse to visit, this school would be a MUST to attend

I might be interested.  Weekdays would be my preference, though I don't have a specific date in mind.  However, I'd like to know the anticipated cost for this clinic.

Hi Guys,

As we keep getting closer to June, start to mention some dates that could be potentially suitable for you both.

I'd also like to say, I can teach clinics/schools ANYDAY if that is more convenient for you.

Our "retail" price is $495 for a full 1-day school, including lunch; and

$295 for a 1/2 day, from 9-1, or 2-6....

For SandTrap members, I'm excited to give a special rate $395 for full 1-day; and $245 for 1/2 day.

Remember!!!! I'm more than happy and able to teach half days either in the morning, or afternoon, so if you want to bring a buddy, or your partner / children, let me know and I can tailor costs.

I look forward to seeing you soon!

Great golfing!

James

Orlando doesn't work for me.  If you ever offer one of these in the Midwest (Chicago, Indianapolis, St. Louis, etc.) I'd be interested.

    • My Swing (coop6)
      @coop6 The glaring issue is you are shutting the clubface immediately after impact. Many tour players are holding the face square until halfway up on the forward swing, some even open the face after impact. I have seen a few that shut the face as well but it happens a bit later. I was doing this because my club face was too open at the top. The reason you're doing this is because on the downswing, your body is not bringing the club to the ball. Your upper body should turn and begin moving the arms through. The body should lead and pull the arms, however this does not suggest the arms should trail too much that they become disconnected. Teaching pros argue all the time whether the swing is a oull or a push. Many say it is a pull, because the modern swing is taught to have the body pull the arms as much as possible, especially for power in younger golfers. However the old school still calls it a push, because there is always connection. Remember the body guides where the arms should be going. The body must go first where the arms will follow close behind. If you look at your swing, you can see from the top your arms drop down, which is great as it prevents over the top and promotes dead hands. The problem is the body isn't leading or pulling. The body isn't doing enough on the downswing. Look at the forward swing, it is mostly arms. The arms are going where the body has never been before. Don't let the arms go where the body hasn't been.
    • Anybody play golf without keeping score on a regular basis?
      I normally keep a true and accurate score even though I don't belong to a club, don't have an established handicap, and don't play in any tournaments. Still, if I'm playing my usual casual round...and really playing terribly, I'll occasionally toss the scorecard in the trash. It helps me concentrate on just hitting good shots instead of focusing on making a particular score...and my game usually improves somewhat....
    • My Swing (saevel25)
      No problem! Excellent progress.
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Here's my approach to eliminating the big numbers. Work hard on putting and chipping. I've always maintained that anyone can learn to chip and putt. Its the only part of the game that takes zero athletic ability....just practice, technique and confidence. I miss a lot more greens than I hit...but I make a lot of pars with a chip and a putt (or a very long 2 putt). Even if I don't make par, I often have tap in bogeys. Know your strengths and weaknesses...and be honest with yourself. Use that information to determine your "go to" shots. I'm a lousy iron player, but pretty consistent with the fairway woods. If I'm having one of those days where I'm doing nothing with the irons but hitting fat shots and shanks, I'll start hitting fairway woods off the tee in order to have a fairway wood for a 2nd shot (I carry 3, 5 and 6 woods). Even if I miss the green from that distance, I'll usually be withing chip and putt range (see the last paragraph). I'm normally pretty straight with those fairway woods, but can hit a fade or slice at will....but not a draw. If I'm in a spot that requires a draw to hit the green I'll aim for a spot short of the green (or even right of the green) that I know I can hit. Then try my best to make par from there - and be please with bogey. If I'm on the other side of the fairway and need to bend it to the right I'll be more aggressive since that's a high percentage shot for me. I've had days where I'm hitting my irons so poorly, I'll resort to playing bump-and-run any place I can. Yeah, it makes me feel like a chump when I'm bumping a 7 iron from 100 yards instead of flying a wedge in there....but not a much of a chump as hacking the wedge around and making a double or triple.

      Thank you for your opinion. I have things I am working on that I am committed to 100%. I am going to continue on what I am working on.
