Listening Ear

Fitting with the Ears

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!
