"basics", apply them to YOUR game and YOU will see immediate
results! In 35 years of teaching golf I can tell you that once
a player understands the basics, and then applies them to their
game they are "magically" tranformed into a player to
be reckoned with. I've had 30 handicappers that have improved
15 shots virtually overnight. I've had single digit handicappers
lower their scores by 5-7 shots after learning and understanding
the basics of golf.
matter what level of player you are, YOU WILL IMPROVE!
improve with knowledge and understanding and the proper training.
Once you get these concepts and apply them to your game YOU will
enjoy the game even more.
