Program of Contents 

1- Diagnosis and Programming (Driving Range) 

Training programs are specifically developed for each player. 

The first stage consists of an evaluation that implies: the diagnosis of physical problems, mental structure in relation to the game, proposal and setting of goals, present state of the technical, mental and physical problems and common mistakes and trends. 

Based on this information, the training for each pupil is planned according to his / her particular skills, which will be developed throughout the days.

 

 2- Theoretic Lesson (Driving Range)

In this stage, pupils will receive an intense session developing swing fundamentals and its biomechanical principles.

By the end of the lesson, each pupil will have a personalized card with the technical corrections made by the professional, plus a set of specific exercises to correct these flaws.  

SWING

  • Swing Theory: general and specific principles. 
  • Purpose, Naturalness and Intent.
  • Dynamics
  • Static component: Grip, Stance and Alignment.
  • Dynamic component: Backswing, Top Swing, Downswing, Follow Trough, Finish.

SHORT GAME 

  • • Putter: Grip, Stance and Alignment. Reading of Greens (slopes, speed, distance feeling and attitude).
  • • Bunker: Stance. Different Visions. “Fried Egg”, unconventional stances, quick fixes, attitude.
  • • Approach: Yards count. Distance Feeling. Sand, Lob and Run-up.

 

 3- Practical Lesson (Golf Course)

The game is defined in the course. It is really important to acquire the necessary technique needed

to stroke consistently and minimize the score. But attitude, “knowing how to play”, is what differentiates the average golfer from the outstanding golfer. This is second part of this intensive training. 

 

By having a good technique and consistent strokes, half of the work done is done. The second half is: “Learning how to PLAY Golf, how to achieve the lowest score possible, with the elements I have…”

 

Training in the Golf Course

  • Warm up: physical warming up routines, in order to avoid injury and achieve an optimum availability of
    resources.
  • Putting green Round: understanding the Greens of the course where we play and acquiring the ideal stroke feeling needed.
  • Tactics & Strategy, for each hole and each circuit: handicap management, selection of the best stroke possible, conservative game, risky game, advantages and disadvantages. 
  • Viewing Shots: mental representation, yards count, measurement of wind and rain influence, ball seat, different problems, club selection, and flag position.
  • Pre-stroke Routine: duration, plan, organization, mental attitude, chain of thoughts.
  • Rules: Interpretation and application of General and Local Rules.

 

4 - Final Tips

Once the golfing activity is finished, professionals and pupils will make an analysis about everything they have learnt. Pupils will receive tips for future training, emphasizing those areas where they should improve with practice.
