We kick this episode off with some more practical advice for those of you wanting to start a golf school. Gary gives some great core principles
Gary has two things that he wants to share with all golf instructors. He’s going to talk extensively about this in the episode.
We’re also going to talk a little about something Gary is thinking and talking about a lot. Relaxation.
Tension Kills Motion
Gary’s two keys for teaching success:
#1 – The person in front of you is always more important than the golf swing.
#2 – It’s not what you want to do it’s what they want to do.
“How you treat students is extremely related to if students will stay with the game or not”
Gary tells a really honest story about a time when his actions didn’t align with the first key we talked about. (the person is more important that the swing) It’s a candid reminder that anyone can make a mistake. The issue is recognizing it and understanding that golf and the golf swing is just that.
