Driving Secret… A Golf KISS

If you are looking to drive the ball farther and in more fairways, you may need to take a lesson from my 11-year old son who hasn’t missed a fairway in 27-holes… I’m not kidding!
Brody is 11 and has played Rush Creek and Deer Run and hasn’t missed a fairway… He’s been realtively long averaging 190-210 yards per drive, remember he’s 11 years old…
His current keys… look at the target, build his stance, focus on the strike point and let it go.
Pretty simple…
He’s still enamored by the long ball and hopefully his wedges and putter will catch up… Until then, look at the target, build his stance, focus on the strike point and let it go.

Keep It Simple Silly!

From the ghost writer… Brody Pluth via his proud dad!

Better date this because I’m sure he’ll go through an opposite stretch soon enough…

Short Game Secrets

If you are getting ready to play, make your last look your target, not your landing point!

My son has focused on this and has holed out from 100-yards, 135-yards, 30-yards and 15-yards this week!

I’ve had other golfers chip it a lot closer, pitch it a lot closer, drive it more fairways and have more control over their golf ball!

This really works!

Enjoy the process and remember to focus on what you want, rather than what you want to avoid!

Play golf Minnesota!

How long should a golf improvement program last?

In order to identify your natural movement patterns and own them, develop a scoring mindset, learn how to practice your whole game with purpose, develop the on-course strategy you need to play your best, how long will it take?

A) One hour
B) Half day
C) Three-day golf school
D) Three months
E) Lifetime

If you answered A, one hour, I’m simply not the instructor or coach you are looking for. I enjoy developing relationships with my clients and it’s not feasible to give you everything you need in one hour.

If you answered B, half day, we could do a warm-up, play nine holes, benchmark your skills, identify your natural movement patterns and give you a roadmap to follow to develop your game.

IF you answered C, three-day golf school, we’re getting closer…

If you answered D, three months, this is where I would ideally start golfers in order to develop the scoring mindset, on-course skills, purposeful practice session and own your natural movement patterns and golf swing.
If you answered E, golf is a game you can learn and improve over a lifetime, you are my ideal student. Now you don’t have to take a lesson every week for the rest of your life, I’d like to be your guide to help you achieve your golfing goals.

Brad Pluth’s Golf Achievement Way

It is our goal to guide you to achieve your target score or the lowest score of your career within 90-days of joining one of our coaching programs.

We teach four skills:

  1. Course management: most of our programs start with an on-course game assessment to see where you’re taking your shots and create a comprehensive plan to achieve your scoring goal.
  2. Scoring mindset: we want to customize a process to help you know what to think about or the questions to ask to get you prepared before, during and after a shot. We’ll help you discover visualization techniques along with mental and emotional management strategies.
  3. Purposeful Practice: We’ll recommend the right mix of drills (develop internal feels), games (target awareness activities), exercises (activities you can do without a club or ball) and skills assessments to benchmark your improvement.
  4. Natural Movement Patterns: every body moves differently and generates power and accuracy differently. You will discover how to apply your natural movement patterns to your swing to strike the ball farther, straighter and more consistently!

Three ways to start achieving your goals:

  1. Schedule an On-Course Playing Assessment- if you’ve been playing for a while, this is the best way to start.
  2. Schedule a 90-minute Discovery Session- if you are just starting out or looking to build a swing that compliments your natural movement patterns, this is the best way to start.
  3. Call Brad at 952/401-4653 or schedule a 15-minute free consultation and we’ll create a clear path to achieve your golfing goals.
