|GOLF INSTRUCTION - WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?|
SAN DIEGO, California - Andy is a 30 handicap from California. Since he took up the sport more than twenty years ago Andy's had exactly one lesson. You guessed it. It was the one he took more than twenty years ago.
During the past two decades, Andy has never regretted his decision to remain one of the worst hackers at his club. Not even a round in the 120s will cause him to miss even an hour of sleep. With his potent handicap, he's never really out of a match with anyone.
Nancy, Andy's wife, is a pretty good golfer in stark contrast to her husband. And now that she's added a new weapon to her arsenal, the Over The Top Golf swing, she has distanced herself from Andy even more.
Andy sent me an email last week to tell me how impressed he is with how Nancy is getting off the tee - long and straight. He marveled at how her short iron accuracy has improved.
So I wrote back to Andy to ask whether he also watched my DVD and was going to try the Over The Top golf swing.
He replied that he usually has no problem playing to his handicap so he doesn't need any lessons. Yes, he watched my DVD and also went to the range with Nancy and saw her getting the hang of her new golf swing and starting to pound the ball. But "No, no." says Andy, I don't need any lessons.
Yes, folks, this is a true story but by no means an unusual one.
Have your pro print out a members handicap list from last year and compare it to the current list.
Notice anything interesting?
Yep, that's right, the majority of this year's handicaps are almost an exact replica of last year's handicaps.
"What are you waiting for?" is the first question that comes to mind.
