What can I do now to Improve rapidly as a beginner

Question: Why can't I just go swing at thousands of balls in till I'm good?

Answer: You can't learn a language in a day. Being able to read a word doesn't mean you know how to pronounce it correctly.

Use drills to break down parts of a swing to assist you to learn faster.

Drills are helpful tools to develop a player’s ability rapidly. They are designed to teach good techniques and brain function when holding a golf club or in any sport using an implement to strike. A marathon runner doesn’t sit on the couch for a month, and then run a marathon. They eat right, train every day, and build themselves towards the run. Runners run. Tennis players serve. A basketballer shoots. A footballer kicks. A cricketer throws. It’s the same with your golf swing. Every one of these players practices replicating a movement, in sections, or as a whole movement.

Learning exercises and drills need to replicate the full swing in parts then – they need to flow together. Once again remember Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will your golf swing.

Enjoy your practice time have fun!

PGA Trainee Professional III

I have been lucky enough to grow up in an area of New Zealand with the only golf course to host a world cup of golf. At a young age I attended junior lessons and stopped playing at the age of 14 on a handicap of 28 and took up competitive snowboarding. At 18 I finished school and become a bar manager at a night club that I became to loath the life style of dark nights whilst still trying to snowboard. By 19 I had dislocated my shoulder 10+ times I had to give up my dream of snowboarding. I started playing golf whilst working as a bar manager at the world renown course and within a year applied to be a professional golfer. Accepted in 2013 and now am heading into my final year of my apprenticeship. I enjoy teaching and have had some local playing success and now golf has rapidly become my life. I have now been lucky enough to meet new people from my profession and choices to mould myself a positive career and lifestyle. Now looking though teaching to create more teacher friendly courses to assist other to learn as quickly as I did.

NEWinsight. You will learn something new - guaranteed.

Hi, I’m Joel. I injured my back two years ago while surfing, and haven’t been able to work the same since. I wondered if anyone else out there ever needed greater flexibility like me. I thought, if I could take the lesons I’ve learned through counselling over the years and get them into the hands of busy people when they want, where they want, would it be useful? 

The answer = Udemy.

I remembered this platform and got to work creating online workshops for Udemy when my body let me. And now that they’re done, you can access my online courses whenever and wherever you want, for as long as you want. 

Drawing on over 2000 hrs of face to face counselling I have put together some practical and in depth workshops and made them available to the public on Udemy. 

NEW skills. NEW techniques. NEW insight. If you don’t learn something new and relevant, get your money back. That’s my UDEMY promise.

Give it a go!
