Shooting lower scores on the golf course requires more than a consistent golf swing. You must understand your own strengths and weaknesses and have a clear plan for which weaknesses, that when improved will yield the biggest reduction in score.

Every new student is eligible for an introductory 9 hole playing assessment. This will include playing 9 holes while Derek rides along with you observing your play and taking notes of your strengths and weaknesses across a variety of skills including:

  • Driving
  • Long fairway shots
  • Approach shots
  • Pitching
  • Chipping
  • Bunker play
  • Putting including the skills of green reading, speed control and start direction
  • Course management
  • Pre-shot routine
  • Mental skills
  • Ability to play form various stances and lies
The key for us is to recognize the skills that when improved will yield the biggest reduction in score. You will also have a conversation about your golf goals, golfing history and time available to commit to your goals.
This is the perfect opportunity to learn more about Derek’s approach to the improvement process and why having your own golf coach will be very different to having a swing teacher or sporadic, one off, technical golf lessons.
At the completion of the round you and Derek will together decide upon the skills that present the best opportunity for score reduction and will together design a Personal Improvement Plan that will guide you to your scoring goals.
Derek will then email you a copy of your Personal Improvement Plan for your own records.
