Sometimes after I give a lesson my concern is I gave the student too much information. I usually follow up with an email outlining what we covered, with hudson golf highlights on what the student should focus on, understanding that trying to put into practice an hour worth of swing thoughts might be a bit much.
While as a rule we try to teach in a simplified manner, quite often, in an attempt to get a point across, things get complicated– more than necessary. A lesson at times can be full of trial and error. When it is complete, though, the teacher should convey the highlights with just a few items to focus on and why.
Whether after a lesson, reading an article, seeing a tip on TV, etc., you are going to want to take the new information to the golf course. My suggestion is one SWING THOUGHT at a time. More than one is too much. Even the best of players limit themselves to a back-swing thought and a downswing thought.
Keep it to a single thought until you get the result you’re looking for. If you find something that is working for you, stick with it until it’s second nature, then find another one!
