Short Game School – Starts September 11th
The next Short Game school starts on Sunday, September 11th, 9:00am to 10:30am and runs for 4 weeks.
Last year, Seventy (70) students took part in my Short Game School. I cannot begin to tell you how many emails I received from satisfied students!
I have had the honor of studying directly with some of the world’s greatest short game instructors including James Sieckmann, Mike McGetrick, Dave Pelz, and Jeffry Smith. I have worked with all of their philosophies and found out what worked for me and what didn’t. I have come up with my own hybrid, the best of all of their philosophies, that has made my personal short game, really good!
Based on last year’s results, I can honestly say, your short game will improve immensely after taking attending this school.
The school will run for 4 weeks (9/11, 9/18, 9/25 and 10/16).
The school costs $150 per student.
Adult Beginner’s Class – Level 1 –
Started Sunday, October 16th at 11:30am – 12:30am (Class dates – 10/16, 10/23, 10/30, 11/6, and 11/13). This class is for beginning golfers who would like to learn the basics of the golf swing. This class is also for high handicap golfers who never learned the basics and would like to improve. My method has been extremely successful for all of the beginners who have taken lessons with me! We start slow and are very patient! You will be amazed at how well you will hit the ball during the first class! Get a jump on the summer and sign up for Shoreline Bill’s Adult Golf Basics class. Cost is $149 for 5 – 1 hour classes.
Adult Beginner’s Class – Level 2 –
Started Sunday, October 16th at 10:30am – 11:30pm (Class dates – 10/16, 10/23, 10/30, 11/6, and 11/13). This class is a continuation for students who completed Level 1. These beginner classes are a great way to learn the proper techniques required to hit a golf ball. When you learn the correct technique and why they are required, you learn. Once you learn, you do not forget!
This method is the same method I used to go from a horrible golfer to a PGA member and instructor!
Putting Clinic – Date to be announced
I will have two putting clinics. One on a week night and one on the weekend. (The week night will be the week of May 15th. If you are interested in the week night clinic, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know what day of the week works best for you and what time.)
The putting clinic will be 2 1/2 hours long.
The class will provide you with an analysis of your current putting stroke, and a putting solution and plan for improving your putting. Short putts, lag putts and an introduction to green reading will be covered.
As a Certified Flagstick Academy Instructor, I will be utilizing the knowledge I acquired from David Orr of Flagstick Academy (putting instructor to Justin Rose, Hunter Mahan and many more pros).
If you tend to hit the ball too far, which type of putter should you use? If you tend to always come up short, which type of putter should you use? If you tend to push the ball, should you use a mallet or blade? If you tend to pull the ball, should you use a mallet or blade. Should you use a conventional grip or large grip? What grip pressure should you use with that grip?
These answers and many more will be answered at this putting clinic.
The cost of the Putting Clinic is $120.
