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.
