One thing that is important to remember when we interact with golfers is that they booked the time to be with us, not the other way around. I bring this up because most teachers and coaches really want to tell people how much they know. I find the opposite to be most successful when coaching golfers or fitting them for clubs. Specifically, I mean the ability to listen to what their concerns are and why they took the time to come to The Golf Performance Center. You can learn a lot by listening. A golfer may not always fall into the “stiff” shaft just because they achieve a certain club speed number. Sure club speed is a factor, but learning about what is important to them when they hit a golf shot could be the reason they have a great experience. Try it sometime and see what people will want to tell you!
