Simple Playing Stats say A Lot …

Simple Playing Stats say A Lot …

Monarch Scorecard back 001

 

No place better to discover what’s working and not, than playing On the Course.  There’s a simple way to find what’s holding you back for reaching your golf potential.

 

Here’s some quick scorecard statistics for you to track when you play.  Bring them to a FREE Wednesday night clinic and we’ll build some skill drills for you to improve your game.  They’re quick & easy to do and tell you A Lot.

 

Use one scorecard with multiple lines for your own statistics.  Track each hole using these statistics:

  • First line – score / putts (i.e. bogey “5 / 3” and 3 putts)
  • Second line – “F” / “G” – fairways hit from tee and green hit in regulation – GIR (see Note)
  • Approach shot to green –  “S” or “R” or “L” or 2 of the 3 – for Short, Right or Left of target (use OK if you hit target)
  • Distance of the first putt – you walk it off – most adults have a 3 foot long stride – most junior have a 2 foot stride
NOTE:  Use your regular par value to see if you reach the green in regulation.  For Par shooters, with low 70’s for a total score, this is 2 strokes less than par per hole (par 4 – Green  in Regulations (GIR) is 2.  For Bogey shooters, around 90 total score, this is 1 stroke over par per hole (par 4 – GIR is 3.  For Double Bogey shooters, around 108 total score, this is 2 strokes over par per hole (par 4 – GIR is 4.  Use these to figure the total GIR – Greens in Regulation.
AFTER the round is over 1) Add the scores and putts, 2) Add the Fairways and Green, 3) Add the trends for Short, Right and Left, 4) AVERAGE the distances of the first putt.   Then come to the FREE Wednesday night clinics and see your biggest weakness AND How To Fix It with Drills.  This will lower your scores and Give You a Path  toa NO Frustration round of golf.  Ans YES that IS possible…
It’s very simple.  Track your stats and I’ll see you at the FREE Wednesday night clinic (5:30 – 6:30 PM) at Monarch Bay Learning Center …

New April Month of Coaching

golf-caddie-coaching

golf-caddie-coaching

In the April Month of Coaching  at Monarch Bay Learning Center,  we will develop your skills, practice your skills and test your skills, so they can become habits.  All you need to do is be prepared with your clubs and all the amenities you would normally use, to play a full round of golf.
We provide a Golf Journal to take your personal notes, Takeaway Skills Guide that summarizes the skills we cover and a Players Guide for self discovery when you play.   This is  how the pros develop their game, and  My goal is to get you to a strong level of play to accomplish your golf goals.  
We cover all the skills of your A game & B game in areas of putting (short & long), chipping (up & down hill), pitching (distance & direction control), bunker (3 most common shots), wedge approach (up to 100 yards) and tee shots (into & down wind) with drivers and woods.
This Month  of Coaching can lead you to a great golf game through skill development that may get your junior a college scholarship in golf, or a winning golf game for adults.  This same program has taken a 6.1 handicap NCGA tournaments players and gotten him to a 1.1 in 3 months.  Note that he only posted his tournaments rounds.  That’s the kind of game adults can get from this program.
Did you know that 15 % of women’s golf scholarships went unclaimed!  5% of men’s college scholarships went unclaimed.  All high schoolers had to have was a decent golf game to get those scholarships!    I have worked with a number of juniors and produced dvds for their potential golf coaches to see, which gets the junior ahead of the paper application curve to get those few selected spots on college teams  each year.  You can see a example of the dvd of Rachel, who successfully got on the Wake Forest golf team. See it www.newrulescoachrick.com/home/golfcareer/for-junior-golf-competitors/
Please join us for a Month of Coaching, 16 hours, held Saturday & Sunday mornings, starting Saturday April 5 at 9 AM.  Please come 10 minutes early to register.  Adults are $300 and juniors are $250 for 16 hours of coaching.
