A roadmap for developing your game

Let’s say you’ve been playing for a while, but your game has hit a plateau. Where do you go from here? One thing we do know —  more of the same probably isn’t going to change your game around. To point you in the right direction we have put together a road map based on how we see the most improvement in our golf students.

The first step is figuring out a plan to improve your game. Commit to a series of lessons and work with an instructor (Change Golf Instructors) to evaluate weaknesses in your technique (long or short-game). Develop a plan to correct these issues.

As you are working on your technique, it’s important to keep playing and keep track of your improvement. Technology has made this a lot easier with myriad options for keeping statistics on your phone. Share these statistics with your instructor to make sure you are working on the right corrections.

After you have completed your private lessons, take some time to get comfortable with your changes (10-20 rounds). And when you feel ready, sign-up for a beginner golf class. Our 5 x session classes will review your ball flight, swing corrections and short-game. They also provide valuable supervised practice sessions to keep you on track. Check out our schedule here.

Of course, this is just a guide. We’d be happy to work with you individually and develop a plan to help you meet your golf goals. Contact us anytime — we’d love to hear from you!

Tiger’s motivation

The Future You

About one month before his 40th birthday, Tiger Woods gave a very uncharacteristic press conference. His demeanor was humble and downbeat and he lacked the focus and goal-orientated rhetoric that has defined his interviews over the last 20 years. He stated that his recent back surgery would sideline him indefinitely. For many, the press conference symbolized what many experts had speculated for years — Tiger is done.
