This program is available as an introduction to playing the game of golf for year 8 to year 11 students.
A structured golf program can be organized over a period of a single term with a game at a pitch and putt golf course on the last week of term.
This program will combine basic full swing fundamentals, short game which covers chipping, pitching, bunkers, putting and basic course etiquette and rules
They will also be taken through the basic requirements of playing on an actual golf course.
With the use of the state of art video/computer analysis system they will have their swing analyzed using coloured on screen graphics along with a side by side swing comparison of a leading Tour Professional.
Many schools book a time to bring there year 10 and 11 students along so I can discuss the biomechanics of the golf swing along with other areas such as the physics and geometry of the golf swing.
We can also discuss how technology has changed over the year with areas such as golf clubs, golf balls, swing technique and much more.
