Student Feedback – Tom C.

It’s always satisfying to hear from one of my students that the work we are doing together is paying off in their golf game. I spent some time in Phoenix recently, playing and working with one of my students: Tom C. Here’s what he had to say after our time together:

Hey Glenn. I know you won’t believe this but I played at Camelback, the Ambiente course today and had 5 birdies. Three in a row , 18, 1 and 2. So its obvious that you are a hell of a good coach.

Thanks, Tom! Keep up the good work!

Are you average?

Mike LaBauve working with Cheyenne Woods at the Westin Kierland in Scottsdale, AZ.

I recently had the pleasure of spending time with my golf coach, Mike LaBauve at his golf facility at the Westin Kierland in Scottsdale, Arizona. Mike was working with Cheyenne Woods, Tiger Wood’s niece. Cheyenne won the Ladies Australian Open last year and is off to qualifying school for the LPGA Tour. Cheyenne strikes the ball beautifully, but wanted to improve her wedge and putting game. Note these Tour statistics: 30% of tour players are good ball strikers with average short games. 65% are good short game players with average ball striking. 5% are fortunate enough to be good at both!

Look at your own game now, are you average or less than average with your short game?

The average score in amateur golf is 100, 40 strokes are in putting, 25 strokes are in the short game and 5% are due to penalties (ball in water, playing the wrong ball, etc.).

If you want a better full swing, work on your ball striking.

If you want a better golf game, become better than average in your short game and putting.
