Golf 911 featuring Jason Helman and student @fairwaystevie Steve Waxman

Here is a little mini-series put together from writer and columnist Steve Waxman.  He approached me to do this series and challenged himself to see if he could improve his game through quality coaching and a commitment to practice.  I agreed to jump on board and we got to work.

Over the course of the summer we shot a few videos to help Steve Waxman find his way back to a single digit handicap.   His initial goal was to be consistent in the low to mid 80’s but, he worked very hard and a couple of weeks after his first coaching session he went from shooting in the 90’s back into the 70’s firing 79 in one of his first few rounds.  After our second coaching session that focussed on chipping he continued with a solid round and after our putting session he was still hanging out in the low 80’s as his skill development progressed.  Feel free to check out a couple of our videos to see what we addressed to improve Steve’s skills.

It’s important to understand that learning and developing skills are two very different things.  We can gain the knowledge and have a learned concept of what is supposed to happen but until we develop that set of skills and have the ability to maintain those skills for a period of time our expectations really need to be managed.  We hope you enjoy the videos.

Jason Helman PRO-FILES Magazine Articles…

I’ve put together a short magazine for everyone of some recent articles in a magazine format.  Please feel free to check them out at your convenience.  I tend to write more conceptual articles and this can often change your instincts and intuition without physically focusing or consciously thinking about mechanics.  I hope you enjoy the magazine.  (note the file is fairly large)

Jason Helman in Golf Academy of America TV Commercial on Golf Channel

Hey everyone,

Just thought I’d give you a heads up on a recent commercial I shot for the Golf Academy of America.  As many of you may know I’m a graduate and was proud to appear as a success story for this advertisement. The Golf Academy of America gave me a solid foundation to build my career in the golf industry. I was educated by some incredible instructors such as Brad Turner, Charlie King and the late Conrad Rehling to name a few.  They all inspired me to set goals and reach for the future, it took sometime to reach a few pinnacles of success but the last few years have really paid off.  I would encourage anyone looking at entering the golf business to enroll themselves in the academy.  Check out the TV commercial in the link below for some previous graduate successes and achievements.

Regards,

Jason Helman

#7NightsAtTheTwitterAcademy – #JuniorEdition – A #Mastermindcrew

Well, we rolled out another great show.  Thank you to all of the coaches for your time creativity and a huge thanks as well to your students that starred in the videos.  It was truly a pleasure to help in #growingthegame and make aware to everyone that #golfisfun.  We had 1236 views in the first week and hope it will reach more juniors, coaches or programs around the world.  I would be remiss without mentioning our absent coaches from our original team Andrew Marr and Kirk Oguri who had prior commitments and were not able to produce an episode for this series.  We were so happy to have Megan and Aaron come on board to provide their amazing fitting and wedge game presentation. Please have a look at all of the video below if you didn’t catch all the episodes. We are the next generation of golf instruction and our next step is to head a golf school you can attend to get some in person training from all of us.  Stay tuned for the next project.

Thank you to:

Noah and Luke for starring and Damian and Stephanie for allowing them to stay up late and film glow in the dark golf. ; ) Jason

Jason Helman Joins the Golf Channels Swing Fix Team of Instructors

So, there I was tweeting away when a direct message came in from the Director of Instruction of the Golf Channel’s Swing Fix,  asking me “Would you like to be one of our instructors on Swingfix? We need pros from Canada and I would love to have you as part of our team.”  I of course replied and said, “yes” and I’m now one of the first PGA of Canada Instructors involved with this amazing effort to grow the game. This platform provides students the ability to take instruction online by reaching out to an instructor of  their choice across North America.  This is a great opportunity for golfers to receive instruction by sending their video in for analysis along with specific drills they can watch to implement proper corrective movement patterns to improve their mechanics or interact with their coach online.  Please feel free to check out the bio below or visit the site at:
