The ‘Old Country Gentleman Golf Teacher’ is not prone to many new attitudes or directions. He does not believe in many ‘Golf Dildos’… Training Aids. He has believed for over 40 years that golf is played bare-footed and naked on a ‘150 Acre Grassy Billiards Table’ with only a ball and oddly curved stick. Pretty purist? A bit!
When you learned to drive, you had to master ‘Parallel Parking’ … “Oh what a testy and fearful chore” that was! Better to run over an orange or red cone than someone else’s property, but ultimately one had to pass the test in the real world of ‘Curbs and Third Party Vehicles! It was your wheels and tires against the curb! It worked to varying degrees and has survived for eons!
Being a good ‘Parallel Parker’ stems from ‘Work Smart Conditioning’. So too does being a good putter and chipper. Golf too is a real-world functional test that strives towards ‘Small Number’ on a scorecard!
