Message From Brian Yager...
to bring value to golfers like you who have subscribed to my newsletter
and in order to ensure that I can regularly publish really useful golf
information, I have formed a relationship with Mark Anderson.
is a certified CPGA golf professional who has what I think is an innovative
approach to teaching amateurs. Mark's rather impressive resume is posted
on the CaddieMaster.com web site. Check it out at http://www.caddiemaster.com/aboutus.html
as providing the CaddieMaster development team with useful tips on how
to improve the program, Mark will be a regular contributor to this newsletter.
the scene for future newsletters, I'm now turn things over to Mark....
Your Own Philosophy
not believe there is one "best approach" to learning golf. I have spent
a great deal of time studying MANY of the various approaches to teaching
golf. I utilize
all of the various methods and/or philosophies to some degree.
pin point for each individual student what is best for him or her is the
real challenge! It
involves predicting, as accurately as possible, how the student might
end up many years in the future. This is pretty well impossible!
I can do is educate people on specific approaches once I know a bit more
about the student's history with the game. But what I really like to do
is to study the challenges of golfers that have succeeded in elevating
their game to a new level of competence and learn from their experiences.
like to have the student take control of the teaching approach.
teachers (and that includes ALL teachers; not just golf instructors) have
learned how to provide the student with unbiased information and thereby
put the student in a position to form his/her own opinions and to develop
his/her own strategy for self- improvement.
as an aspiring artist can learn from the geniuses of the past, so too
can a golfer learn about the fundamentals used by the PGA touring pros.
But learning the fundamentals is just the starting point -- it is after
this has been done that my somewhat unique approach becomes valuable.
carefully compiled data about the teaching methods and tools that I have
used to instruct hundreds of students over the years. Over time, I discovered
various approaches that would allow the student to begin to define his/her
own personal approach to improvement -- that is, to develop a strategy
that would result in improvement in the shortest possible time.
noticed that most golf professionals and scratch amateurs have their own
opinion on how to develop a good golf swing. The key is that there are
many differences on the best approach even among these expert golfers.
the conclusion is that there is no "one best" approach for everyone but
there generally is an approach that is best for each particular golfer.
is an old saying -- "to avoid a conflict or argument, there are some things
that most people will not agree on; opinions on which no one person is
always right or wrong. So the best approach is to avoid such confrontational
topics as religion, politics and the golf swing!"
where are we going with all this?
in future newsletters I want to help you widen your perspectives to learning
golf and to help you create your OWN golf book. This is the real key to
success in just about any endeavour.
what works for you, document it, study it and practice the techniques.
Thank you for letting us serve you,
