The Waiting

"Is the hardest part..."  Or is it?  For your golf game to improve.  For votes to be counted.  For the bug to go bye-bye. 

Today's title and lyrics 'stolen' (really - how about borrowed, or begged?) from my man Tom Petty, but of course.  

Looks like TP is waiting for something in the image above; are you waiting for an Intraweb-based miracle (quick fix, pixie dust, or the like) to improve your golf? I understand - and if you think the vote-tabulating in this country is taking an eternity - so might your search for golf 'betterment' on line or via SM...

Wait no more, fellow wanderers of the links, I'm here to help.  Click below for specifics on my in-person (so incredibly important) and remote coaching offerings. 


At results - in the golf park (and other: you know where, and what I mean...).  I understand, Part II.  But why?

Bad information (fraudulent coaching alert!!!)?  Someone's bias, preference or $-making agenda that doesn't help you?  Conspiracy golf swing theories based in pseudo-science?  

Yikes - this game is challenging enough with legit guidance, let alone Tomfoolery... I prefer Tom Petty.  Click on either version of this legend for some meaningful tunes & lyrics this fine November Monday - then swing back this way for a few additional CS tidbits, on how to stop waiting and get moving in the right direction for your golf game. 

"Oh baby, don't it feel like heaven right now?
Don't it feel like something from a dream?"

Feels like that when you start hitting it better, huh?  I'm with you... Indeed, like something from a dream.  That's what proper coaching and direction can do for you.  Wisdom shared (rooted in experience).  Physics in lieu of weird science.  Ideas, concepts and motions that fit you - not the masses.  

"Every day you get one more yard
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart"

Ah... in search of hitting it farther?  Love it - yet time to stop waiting and take action.  Upgrade your equipment - physical body and sticks in your bag.  Ingest real information about what makes the golf ball fly farther from where you hit it.  Beware of what you take to heart; the talking heads (and dragons..) hiding in every nook and cranny of your blue-screen lit life, expressing their 'feels,' opinions & pre-Pythagoras (or was it Eratosthenes?) ideas on distance, might very well be blowing you over a precipice of short-hitting...

"Baby, we know better than to try and pretend
Honey no one coulda ever told me 'bout this"

Do you know better than to pretend you are improving?  Look at the numbers, honey...

Although the data our precious machines spit out are not 100% accurate (human-derived algorithms - much like our ever-flawed Polls), the info they do give can be very helpful, when interpreted accurately (there's that 'competent coach' thing again), and presented in a "cause & effect" manner + solution to follow.  

Otherwise, you might as well look at hieroglyphics (I'm actually a big fan of pictures to help students comprehend, process and assimilate).  


Nearly every week since late 2014, I’ve poured a tremendous amount of time, energy, and resources into the “CS Newsletter” offerings, which remain free.  While many in my vocation have chosen other mediums to communicate (and hopefully help golfers, and humans, alike), I continue to opt for the written word, blending pieces of music, pertinent videos and articles.  The intention: to authentically guide you - my fellow wanderers of the links and life’s daily sidewalks - on more fruitful paths.

If you find any solace or motivation from my ongoing labor or love, or if on occasion a message has managed to put a smile on your face, a tear in your eye, inspirited you take a step back and reconsider all for a moment - or even peeved you into positive action - please do consider supporting it with a donation.  Should you already donate, I THANK YOU.

Click on a soon-to-be reading and writing CS, above, to contribute.

Remote and in-person coaching options at Eugene Country Club and Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club (periodically, in season).  The development of an optimal practice program for you, your needs, and your schedule.  Ideas and referrals in the equipment domain - those sticks in your bag, and your physical body.  Science and evidenced-based help in achieving higher mental acuity on the course.  A competent, comprehensive and on-going loop for learning, regardless of where you are on the planet.

Contact me for a consultation; click on my logo just above for further specifics.
