Recently, I’ve been putting some thought in to how my students can increase their knowledge of their golf swing. One of the most surprising things to me as a coach is that for the most part I know my students’ swings and swing flaws better than they do. This is especially prevalent in my duties as a high school golf coach for the Canal Winchester Girls’ Golf Team. It’s very frustrating when I hear a player say “I’m doing this, can you please fix me?” AGAIN. Wait a minute – we just discussed this technique last week and you executed it perfectly. Even better, you were able to show me that you had a grasp on that skill by answering my questions during the review at the end of our practice session. What happened? Why can I remember, but a lot of students cannot? It’s simple: I get paid to remember. Improving peoples’ golf swings is a large part of what I do every day. Unfortunately, most people don’t get to dedicate their time and focus to golf (I LOVE MY JOB). Most of the kids on my high school team have rigorous school schedules and various other extracurriculars taking them away from golf. You may have work, family, or other hobbies spreading your focus. Does this mean you can’t have a full grasp on your swing? Absolutely not, it just means you need a system to organize what you’ve learned.
