Dear Santa, for 2016, I asked you bring me a new swing; thus I cannot continue to play at the same in the coming New Year. My 2017 New Year resolution is a 5 strokes better score. Please help.
New Year resolutions are often unrealistic. In golf, there is no difference and we golfers often set goals above our playing ability. Setting unrealistic golf game goals are detrimental to one’s improvement and progression. Instead of setting unachievable goals, use the ladder approach to golf game development. The formula, divide your goal in five steps. For example; your ultimate goal is to shave five strokes, start with one and once achieved (mastery) move to stroke two; thus taking the first step in the ladder. Why use the ladder approach? Simple, you can only step back down (one step) to work on what you mastered and keep working up the ladder as supposed to starting all over again from scratch.
For those looking to progress through the ladder at a faster speed, instruction is recommended. With our own available and ready PGA Professional, Joe Lewandowski, and four Golf Pros assistants, you are a phone call away to improve your game.
