What happens during a typical lesson?
- Evaluate player's Ball Flight, Equipment, and Fitness. Followed by state-of-the-art Video Analysis.
- Coaching and Feedback
- Practice Plan & Drills
The first step is the interview process. We believe this is critical because we get a feel for the student’s experience and ability but more importantly what his or her goals are.
The second step is evaluation and analysis. After watching the student hit several shots, we will ask detailed questions about his or her game while capturing the shots using state of the art video equipment. After illustrating, evaluating, and analyzing the student’s form on video we will identify and prioritize the skills and fundamentals the student needs to work on. During this time the student will be sent an e-mail of the video and analysis for review after they have returned home to practice.
In the final steps, the student gets a clear understanding on how to practice the one or two things we have identified as being key issues. In this critical coaching phase, the student leaves with specific drills to use at home to target his or her flaws.
