Learn the fundamentals of grip, stance, alignment & posture. We will cover all basic aspects the student will need to play nine holes. We will introduce putting, chipping full & partial swing. The basic rules and etiquette will be covered also.
Previous experience required either beginning golf or some basic knowledge. Refine the golf swing with our focus on learning how the ball flight laws effect where the ball goes. Work on developing a more consistent and repeatable golf swing with an emphasis on the impact position. Discuss swing plane and path and how these effect where the golf ball goes.
Take your game to the next level an emphasis will be placed on learning how to improve your ability to score. The short game will be a major focus in this class.
