Welcome to the first step in transforming your golf game with me!
(By the way, this page relates to golfers who are able to see me in-person for some of their coaching sessions, if you aren’t able to easily do that – check out my Coaching Plus Online offering here)
What is Coaching Plus?
Using a unique combination of technology, experience and my vast collection of knowledge about the game of golf – I’m now able to help you with your golf game with a level of support that I never thought would be possible and as a result.
The relationship between me (the coach) and you (the student) will be something that you are unlikely to have ever experienced, not to mention how it will help your improvement in your golf game.
What’s the technology?
We’ll both be collaborating using an app called CoachNow (it works on smartphones, tablets or computers) to create your ongoing learning record, take videos or use video analysis when we need to, chat about your game in general, share files or scorecards, put drills or practices on when needed.
There’s a lot of possibilities!
You can find out more about the CoachNow app below (just be aware, the videos are aimed at coaches but you’ll get the idea of how it’s going to work by the end):
Of course, if you’d rather we can use email, skype, WhatsApp or some other form of communication but once you see CoachNow in action, I’m sure you’ll agree with me that is far superior.
As long as you keep getting coaching from me, you have access to the entire record of what we’ve done over that time.
It’s a really powerful way to improve your golf game.
What about the Golf Coaching?
This is where Coaching Plus is really going to make a difference to your golf game.
First up, because it’s going to be fairly likely that you have never had coaching from me before (hopefully, you will have read some of my articles on Golf Habits or a few of my books though!) we are going to have an initial session that’s a bit different from other golf coaches you might have tried or heard of.
This session will allow me to make sure that I fully understand the history of your golf game, evaluate your current challenges, talk through your hopes for your golf in the future and do a full equipment assessment of your golf equipment – including the golf ball you use.
Yes, it’s that in-depth!
Part of that initial session will be taking some video of you hitting a shot or two (maybe three), in all the main areas of the game, pictures of your equipment and a few other things (like an image of the scorecard of the course you play most often) as well.
Putts, chips, pitches, sand shots, full shots, alignment, pre-shot routine, driving, fairway woods (beware, that I may ask for further shots or whatever else I feel I need to see on video as I create your improvement plan).
And, if it’s possible, we’ll go onto the golf course to get some video of you playing a hole or two.
By the way, I’ll hook you into the CoachNow app and give you some further instructions before you start all that, so that every one of your videos.
Will instantly be sitting in your CoachNow app for you to look at afterwards!
After that, as you can imagine, it will take me a bit of time to review all of the information and the videos that you provide and come up with two important things.
The first will be your ongoing, prioritised improvement plan.
In other words, what we need to do together over whatever time-frame I think it will take to transform your golf game.
I will then contact you either by email or using the CoachNow app to go over your prioritised improvement plan and we’ll discuss your next steps at that time which will include an estimate of how many months it will take to get to the target we agree upon to get the improvement that you are after.
You can find an example of the sort of plan I will create for you (plus some other aspects of Coaching Plus Online) here: https://ianhardie.net/coaching-plus-info/
No more endless golf lessons to see if something good happens or wondering what to do next!
In effect, I will be guiding your improvement using whatever I think is most necessary at the time using experience and my vast collection of knowledge about the game of golf to get you to where you would like to be with your golf game.
The second thing you will get from that initial session, is the area of the game that your first coaching session will be focused on, which will be whatever part of your golf game seems most important to me from what I’ve seen and the information that you’ve given me.
As Coaching Plus can have many variations depending on the duration I think it will take us to reach your goal level, the different delivery options that I use and frequency of the coaching you might require, it’s hard to advertise a set price as to what it will cost but as you might expect, the nature of Coaching Plus finds it sitting at the top end of both time required by me and cost due to the depth of coaching, knowledge and experience required to coach in this way.
One thing I will point out, is that once we are underway I am simply after a commitment by you to apply yourself as well as you can to your golf game (as I certainly will be doing that on my side of things) but I’m not a fan of locking people into things, so while you will no doubt be happy to commit to whatever ongoing monthly coaching fee we agree on – you can cancel at any time and there is no notice period required.
It’s up to you now – are you ready to transform your golf game with Coaching Plus?
