Day One begins with registration and introduction at 8:00 am. This is followed by an in-depth discussion of the fundamentals of golf and how they relate to everything you try to do in golf.
The rest of the morning will be spent on the short game with an emphasis on chipping and pitching.
After lunch, you will spend about 2 hours on the range, working on your full swing with short irons and starting the process of building good swing mechanics. It is at this time that every student will have their swing reviewed with video by an instructor. The day is concluded with a discussion of club fitting and how it affects your swing. After the session is over, you may continue to practice on the range or go play a few holes.
Day Two will start with the short game again. This time we will be focusing on putting and bunker play. After lunch, we will again head to the range for more full swing instruction and video analysis. This time the focus will be on mid to long irons, fairway woods & hybrids and the driver. Once again, after the session is over, you may continue to practice on the range or go play a few holes.
Day Three will start on the course with comprehensive instruction on strategy, course management, decision making, rules, unique course conditions and how to properly focus on the course. This will take us all the way to lunch. After lunch will be a review of the academy and free practice time with your instructor on any areas you both feel need extra time. This is also a great time to take a good look at your equipment and get custom fit if you require it.
**During each session, there will be a number of breaks scheduled for the students. Fatigue is one of the greatest enemies of learning. We would much rather you hit fewer golf balls and take more breaks. Ask lots of questions, take advantage of your instructors and write down everything you learn in your student manual. Use your time at the academy to learn how to practice when you get home. Remember what Harvey said, "Lessons are not to take the place of practice but to make practice worthwhile"
