At Lock Golf Academy…
We believe that each student is an individual, and has differing abilities to learn and progress. We concentrate on understanding the student and assisting with the learning of their ideal golf swing. To accelerate this learning process, Our Instructors will establish a perfect set-up position and then work to perfect a swing that compliments the student’s body type and time commitment for practicing the preferred swing. Using the latest Video Analysis systems and Training aids you will hear and feel what is being taught and see what you look like using slow motion Video Analysis.
Being exposed to a broad range of styles and studying their effectiveness with different types of students, Lock Golf Academy instructors began to settle in on a core teaching philosophy that embraced the individuality of every golfer’s uniquely authentic swing; a philosophy that establishes that there is no one way to swing the club that is the right way for all people.
Fundamental swing development and or major golf swing changes require extensive practice along with professional instruction. Practice however, does not make perfect; it makes permanent. Therefore what you practice is critical to your success. The fundamental drills, and practice methods along with repetition we instruct will help ensure that the student’s knowledge and understanding of the golf swing will improve making the game more enjoyable. Lock Golf Academy looks forward to helping you improve your game.
