BEGINNERS PROGRAMI

I want to introduce you my own special Beginners golf program. The main feature of my program is a uniqueapproach to teaching golf. I have taught juniors with this myprogram. Some of them become golf pro and teaching pro andone of my best student – Ali Altuntaş becomes one of the bestplayer in Turkey. In 2010 I start to teach Ali Altuntaş, he was15 years old then. Already in 2013 he played his firstEuropean Tour event and met Tiger Woods. It was exciting forAli at his 17 years old as form y student and the same time it was very good experience for him as for one of the best playerin Turkey.

The main thing of my program is that – all my lessonsstart from I demonstrate my swing and my game and studentsshould try to copy it. The same time it doesn’t matter howmany students will take part in my program. Because they willwatch and learn from each other. In my opinion, this is veryimportant for mental component of golf. It will allow toarrange golf lessons like gaming form of training. At the sametime there is a competiteve component and students will try tomake good shot, better then previous shot. First shot make a coach, then every student make one shot. Each student hit onlyone ball, then they will change and so on on the circle.Espessially it will be interesting and not boaring for children.

My lesson starts from short game, because, for example, on the putting green students can easily to hit the target ratherthen on driving range. In my opinion, it will let them tounderstand golf more and to love golf. Mental component is very important thing at the begining of learning golf. And at the same time it can be the reason to make beginners tocontinue to develop their skills as a golfer, after the BeginnersProgram will be done.
