Mark has been a golf professional for 36 years. It is imperative to find out what the goals of each student are and the time they plan to devote to their improvement. To make learning easier he asks you what other sports you have played in the past. Doing this will then allow him to explain how the motions used in those other sports (baseball, tennis, hockey) are also used in the golf swing. He is not one to just tell a student what to do. He believes that with an explanation of the motion, the feelings they will encounter with the new motion and the cause and effect of doing the wrong things make it much easier for a student to make and stick with the changes. His goal for each student is for them to have the knowledge to be able to figure out what motion they made when the shot went asstray and then what motion they need to make to hit the ball with the proper results.
