How far in front of ball is best for an intermediate point? I love the driver blur task, makes perfect sense

A foot max! 6 inches is better!

I get a lot out of these vlogs Shawn, thanks. A question about the par 5s. They are my nemesis right now. I am usually a good long iron player, but I just always try too hard when attempting to get on in 2. I’ve had better scores laying up to a wedge yardage I’m comfortable with. But then I feel pretty bummed out for not trying. I’ll usually have about 240y in or something like that. What’s the best here? Do you always go for it no matter what, and take your chances? I’m off 9 now and feel that I need to make more of the par 5s to progress.

Really enjoyed this series. A variant of this would be to have you coach someone in the 18-25 handicap range through 3 holes to see what questions you would ask them and how they approach a shot/hole. (or maybe for for 25+?)

The concluding remarks in this video were quite helpful. It got me think because my sense is a higher handicap with a lesser skill set has to approach a hole different so they can have less stress about their shot and task. (Even the comment above was a gold nugget…about gauging if you go for it…if you feel like it is on the edge then it opens you up to the possibility of strain. Makes a lot of sense.)

For example, how do you break apart a hole if you can’t hit a 220 4 iron? (I think that was in the 2nd video!) A higher handicap has to account for a wider spray angle, more obstacles that get in the way for their shot shape (maybe they only have 1 shot shape that day?), maybe look for the best place to favor in case of a miss. (how do you pick that?) Resetting themselves after a bad miss. I know it is a long list.

What I appreciated most was how you explain your process and how you are approaching a hole. Can’t remember which one it was but you mentioned some obstacles you were trying to avoid so you picked a club that would make that possible. It was now a low stress shot for you.

The short of it is, as you go through a hole, you know answers because you know the better/important questions to ask. It would be helpful to see what questions you ask a lesser skilled/experienced golfer about their approach to a hole once they explain what they are thinking in their approach. We could learn from what you ask them regarding their approach given their skill set. My guess is there are things they are not paying attention to that are important for them with their skill set to have a better round.

I guess this is getting toward the mental approach of golf and more tactical but does that make sense?

It would.

As an aside really enjoying the Jammie Lett videos on Youtube. Sometimes hearing the same thing applied then explained in a slightly different way by someone else who understands, just locks in the concept. Good find!

A great find in deed! Love the new addition to our teaching faculty!
