When students come to me one of the first questions I ask is:
1. How can I help you today?
2. What is the golf ball doing?
3. What do you want the golf ball to do?
4. Please hit a few for me.
When you follow a procedure for diagnosis the student gets better results because the instructor is focused on what the student wants and expects. Then I video from Face On and Down the line. Then we both look at the videos together. Then the diagnosis begins. I describe the path forward, show them what drills or exercises will help them realize their goal. Then we hit more golf balls.
In this lesson, Alice was complaining of a weak slice. She wanted more distance and more consistency. By the time we finished 60 minutes later she got what she asked for, more consistency and a lot more distance. Her weak slice turned into a very strong push draw. I expect results out of my students and my students know that I will do everything possible to help them reach their goals!!
