Raise the level of your game by understanding
the “Circles of Fundamentals”
Our seniors golf school philosophy revolves around the “Circle of Fundamentals“. Each Circle is a layout that can help you improve your golf game by knowing where you are, and where you want to be down your improvement pathway.
You can’t change effectively unless you fully understand what you are trying to do. Learning any motion skill requires that you build a solid foundation on which you can continue to develop your skills. There are levels upon levels of understanding and execution in golf. You start with the most basic things and move on from there. However, there are relatively few fundamentals to master in order to optimize your skills. They can be organized into three categories (however, while you may choose to compartmentalize each to learn them, each is interdependent on the other).
Although it is logical to begin at the top of each circle and move around clockwise from there, you can start anywhere. Executing one fundamental concept leads you to the next one and then the next. They all go together… they all fit. As you begin feeding the fundamentals into your game, then you will notice that your ability to hit your desired result improves and your scores go down.
As your results improve, you will want to raise the level of your preparation before each shot. As your scores go down and you can more often anticipate the outcomes of your shots, then you will want to plan your way around the golf course. Once you have a plan, then you can manage. Once you can manage, then you can evaluate and then finally assess… making any necessary adjustments and moving on from there. Your understanding and awareness will continue to grow… in essence, you will become a golfer.
