PGA Show: Day Four – Practice Golf With A Purpose


Sorry for delay in getting this final quick report to you about the PGA Golf Merchandise Show 2011. I attended two terrific sessions in the early morning on Day 4 of the PGA Merchandise Show but then had to race for the hotel, the taxi, the plane, the bus… you get the picture. It took me most of the day to travel home to Cape Cod. Transportation today is amazing! Just think. You can be in sunny Orlando, Florida in the early morning, and deep in snow on Cape Cod that same evening. (I had to dig my car out of a snow bank, but the engine started right away and that was a small miracle!)

So, I am writing this short post the next day. I want to give you details of those two morning sessions with Pia Nilsson and Lynn Marriott. They are the teaching pros at Vision54 in Phoenix, AZ. Many of the most successful golf professionals including Annika Sorenstam have been their students.  Their whole teaching philosophy has to do with finding balance in the game and practicing with a purpose. It is not enough to focus just on the technical or the mechanical dimensions of golf. Hitting a bucket of balls at the practice range might make you very good at hitting a bucket of balls. But it will not make you a better player of the game of golf, i.e. playing the game on the golf course.

I recorded both sessions and will be posting selections as podcasts in the next week or so. But not today. Today, I’m unpacking and trying to get my act together for the week ahead.

Stay tuned. I have a lot of great information to share with you.
