Winter Lessons

Time to Go to Work on the Golf Game! 

 

The winter offers a fantastic opportunity to make overall improvements in your golf game.  You can practice without the pressure of having to put up a score.  And since Repetition is the Mother of Learning, the winter time offers a chance to an unbelievable number of repetitions

“On Your Mark”  is a winter training program designed to give the golfer a get your golf swing and short game in order  Psychologists tell us that it takes at least 3 weeks to break an old habit and build a new one.  Frustration is often associated with the learning process, particularly when skill instruction requires simultaneous performance of the new skill.  Without immediate feedback and correction, learners can become frustrated and revert back to “what is comfortable,” rather than “what is right”.

“On Your Mark” will concentrate on building the skills, which are so difficult to perfect while competing.  “On Your Mark” will build a golf swing during the winter that can be used in the summer.

Yes, I use video. You’ll see dozens of images of your golf swing throughout the course of the winter.

The On Your Mark Winter Golf Program at the Christensen Golf Academy

Class sizes are limited to 4 students You can have a permanent time in a class or you can come when your schedule allows.  It is designed to be ultimately flexible.  Come as often as you want.  You will essentially create a group golf lesson account.  Pricing is as follows:

The Virtually unlimited category was introduced 4 years ago and provides you with the opportunity to work on your game and get instruction on any day I am holding class.  Students in the unlimited category can have two permanent slots throughout the week.  They can come on other days by calling me 24 hours in advance to fill in any open slots.  I can usually accommodate most requests.

You can have a permanent time slot or you can float from class to class. Instruction will be individualized.  If you have a permanent slot and are unable to attend you are required to notify me by 8:00 am on the day of your lesson.

Program Start times and days when classes are not being held:

The program will start on Monday, November 7. Below is a very preliminary schedule of days when there will not be classes.  Also, extreme weather conditions may force the cancellation of classes.  My general rule of thumb is that if temperatures are below 20 degrees it becomes very difficult to hold a club.  But with the addition of my golf simulator last winter it may be possible to move classes inside provided it is not already in use. I will communicate all class cancellations in a timely manner.

There will not be class the following days: November 12, 19, 22, 23

December 4-7   December 11, 12  December 24- January 1,  January 22-26

If you have a group of people who want to have a class at a different time just ask. Times listed are based on the historical availability of students.  I’m open to any and all suggestions.
