Golf School – Practice for Performance

With the weather being a challenge this Spring, it has been important to focus on what needs to be done rather than what can be done.  It’s tough practicing short putts and little chips when its 8* and blowing sideways and then attempting to hit drivers in 4 layers of clothing but those are the things we need to work on now for those with qualifying events or just to be ready for the sunny season – if it ever arrives.  By placing a focus on the purpose of practice and executing a number of shots with a given […]

Here’s another short episode of Live Stream from the Studio.  This is the first series of putts with the Foresight Quad Putting software which seems to be terrific at first glance.  A follow up post will come shortly with more detail.   Note the comparison with SAM Putt Lab at the end of the video but I believe these devices measure and calculate things much differently.
