Do I need golf lessons?
It's a good idea to get a Pro to look at your swing and make (sometimes minor) adjustments, or you could be practising a bad swing or a bad habit over and over. A Pro can give you an understanding where your good shots and bad shots come from. The results? A more efficient swing, more length and better accuracy with just a few tips and tricks.
I'm just a hacker, do I really need fancy video analysis?
You'd be surprised. Video analysis can help beginners, just as it helps the more serious player. See your swing (warts and all) in a slow-motion replay and get instant visual, detailed feedback. Bobby provides analysis there and then, using graphics and on screen notation. He also records a thorough post lesson review for you to keep for reference.
Will one lesson fix my game?
One lesson will definitely provide quick fixes. But, like any kind of training, if you don't practise and have regular 'health checks', it is very easy to slip back into old habits. Depending on what you want to get out of it, Bobby can create a series of lessons and a game plan for you. These might be spread over a few weeks and include targets to assess your improvement. Bobby keeps in regular contact with you and helps to keep you on track.
I need some new clubs. Can you help with club fitting?
Absolutely! FlightScope is an ideal tool for custom club fitting. It allows golfers to analyse and understand the different strengths and weaknesses of clubs for various distances and angles. FlightScope provides accurate ball flight and club travel information - unlike most other instruments on the market, which only offer launch data. To optimise shaft selection, the Acceleration Profile makes it easy to determine when players are fitted with the correct shaft for their specific swing and loading of the shaft during the swing.
