DDx Golf was created as a response to the multitude of instructional ideologies present and the value they all represent when understood properly. Whether it's from the videos on the internet, books/periodicals or the television, there is no shortage of information available for golfers. It is however, essential that students understand how and when to use that information.
I've spent almost 40 years living with this game; most of the times it shows me where I am deficient rather then proficient. Golf teaches us so much about what we are capable of achieving while always pushing us to greater goals; it has been the most accurate and honest mentor I've ever had. As a former Jimmy Ballard and David Leadbetter instructor, my foundation has always been structured around personal experience. Whatever was taught during the collective 11 years under these coaches, I applied them to my own game before disseminating them to my students. If I can't experience the changes, how will I be able to convey these thoughts and feelings to my students? In order to truly find any significant advancement in this game, we as golfers need to constantly monitor how we change through the various aspects that influence our performance. Did that shoulder injury last month change anything in my motion? Will I be able to practice enough for this weekends tournament with two midterms this week? Certainly there is no magic cure or answer for all the poor scoring we often produce but the love of the game is almost certainly grounded in the few sporadic shots that inspire us and the proper maintenance to make it happen.
