I’d like to ask you to reflect back on any progress you’ve made in the last twelve months by hitting golf balls on the range.
If you’re like most golfers, the problem is that you may find it difficult to stay focused on any single fundamental long enough to fix anything, and you likely switch from one thought to another throughout the course of a pile of golf balls. Assuming your goal is not just to hit all of the balls until they are all gone, sometimes you may leave hitting the ball well…and well, many times you don’t.
What if I told you there is a way to definitely make progress every single time you practice?
Well, these days you can! You know, the technology required to perform video analysis on yourself ten years ago would’ve been about $1500. Today you can get any of a number of apps that do just as much for a nominal cost, if not free. What’s more is these apps are much easier and more convenient to use. Now, before you think I’m endorsing some particular app: the one I just happen to use is the V1 by Frontier Sports. But, it doesn’t matter which one you get, as they all function pretty much the same way. What I’m saying is that if you haven’t already, you need to go to your app store and load a golf instruction video app on your tablet or smartphone. This will change everything!
The reason I'm so passionate about this training series is that I decided last fall, I was going to change my own golf swing after about a dozen years of neglect. I had become so bad that I didn't even want to play the game. But, I knew the fundamentals, and knew that if I just continued to record myself swinging, and worked with one fundamental at a time, that I would make tremendous progress. It took 12 years to destroy my golf swing, but less than 12 months to fix it, and I actually love golf again!
You may say the difference is that I already knew how to use the app, and that I know golf fundamentals. Both of those are true, but it doesn't matter.
90 % of all golfers, for whom I perform video analysis, are helped tremendously by simply becoming aware of just a few fundamentals and seeing themselves on the screen.
In most cases they're only guilty of fundamental flaws which they know very well they shouldn't commit, but don't know they're guilty until they see themselves on video. I can easily show you how to use a swing analysis app:
- How to set it up & shoot
- Quickly trim it down
- See what can be revealed from the down the line view
- What you can learn from the face on view
- What lines to draw
- and what to look for, all of which will help you tremendously.
And, right from the start practice will be fun, engaging and purposeful once again.
I don't want you to continue to play just by feel alone. You need to know what you look like when you swing, and from that, what to tinker with, and what to leave alone. Mostly, how to identify and make changes that will dramatically speed up how quickly you improve. It worked for me, so just let me show you how to do it, and it will work for you.
