With all the craziness going on from COVID-19, some can still play golf, some cannot, but we can all improve during this time. These are a few options that can help you lower your scores during this time.
Practice Putting: Far too often golfers want to lower their scores and go the lengths of buying new clubs, new training aids, getting lessons, and don’t get me wrong these things can help, but how often do we get a putting lesson? Putting lessons are starting to become more popular thanks to guys like Phil Kenyon, David Orr, Marcus Potters,and Preston Combs. Players assume that putting is easy and technique is not nearly as involved, which couldn’t be anymore incorrect. All the coaches mentioned above offer online putting lessons and videos to help you become a great putter. Do yourself a favor and work on your putting during this time.
Improve Physically: Your body plays a huge role in what you are going to do when swinging club. I use the following example to make a point to my players, if I said go dunk this basketball and you are unable to dunk, how likely is it for you to dunk. It is not physically possible for you so if a coach is trying to make a change in your swing but you are physically not able to, what is the point of the lessons? You are just wasting your time and money. So, do yourself a favor and get a TPI body screen. You can go to the TPI website to find a professional to help.
Online lessons or subscription services: The internet is a great thing for providing information. We all have a little more time on our hands so find a pro that does online lessons or has a member subscription website that provides information to help you get better. I personally like guys like Ryan Rody, Taylor Crosby, and Ben Pellicani for online lessons. They are great instructors and can definitely help. If you are looking for a subscription service, my suggestions would be Course Kings or Golf Pass.
Make the most out of this time by working on your golf game. If you would like my help with any of the services above, please reach out. I offer an online putting academy, remote TPI body screen with customized workouts, and online lessons. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
