Juniors and Seniors
 

Juniors
 

I direct and teach the weekly junior classes at the Lorena Ochoa Golf Academy at Goose Creek Golf Club.

I believe juniors learn best in a small group setting with positive, fun, and interactive coaching. That is why I keep the coach-to-student ratio small, have players of the same ages and skill levels learn together, and change the games and drills every week.

Seniors

As we get older, thereíll come a point when we slowly start to lose strength and flexibility. As a result, weíll lose clubhead speed and start hitting the golf ball shorter. It happens to everyone and itís really no big deal.

In truth, older golfers achieve far better results when they forget about distance and focus on improving their accuracy off the tee and developing a better short game.

 Senior Club Fitting

            While every senior golfer is different, many have benefitted through making one or more of the following changes:

 

            ● Playing a higher lofted driver - to add carry distance and gain accuracy.

 

            ● Cutting the driver shaft length - to gain accuracy and improve the quality of contact.

            ● Replace 5 and 6-irons with hybrids - to gain distance and increase trajectory.

            ● Replace 2, 3, or 4-irons (or hybrids) with higher lofted fairway metals - to gain distance and increase trajectory.

            ● Add a wedge - to provide more full swing options when within 100 yards of the green.

            ● Install larger grips - to relieve the tension in the hands and forearms.

            ● Use wide sole lower center of gravity irons - to help those with slower clubhead speed and sweeping swing motion gain trajectory.

Senior Coaching

When coaching seniors, I prefer a series of   shorter 30-minute sessions for $30 each.

I like to teach seniors how to better manage their natural swing motion, how to develop a more effective short game, how to improve their course management, and how to practice more efficiently.

Iíve found that most golfers Ė regardless of their age - can significantly lower their average score through acquiring a better understanding of the game, learning how to better manage their own swing, and applying the principles of purposeful practice.

                        

 

 

 

 

 

 

I've known and worked with Philip Moore for almost 20 years. His latest book, Understanding Golf, is a great read. There are no gimmicks here, just an honest, straight forward discussion about golf and how it is best played. Over the years, I've watched experienced golfers improve dramatically through working with Phil and applying the exact ideas he has clearly outlined in this book. Regardless of your level of play, if you would like to grow your understanding of the game and lower your average score, this book is worth every penny.
