After a certain level of proficiency has been developed swinging the club, it is time for me as an instructor to take my students on the golf course. There I can see if they’re actually making the swing that we’re working on, and how they manage the course. I make very detailed notes when I play nine holes with my students. These act as a guide for what we actually need to work on. Beyond that I recommend that my students do as much on-course practice on their own as possible.
