Define the Problem

Define the problem

The first step in championship problem solving is to make sure you determine the exact nature of your problem. Many a tournament has been lost by the player who attempts an impossible shot from the rough in the vain hope of making birdie where bogey will win the day. The six or seven he winds up making takes him right out of contention. Precisely defining the problem is an art in itself.

Golf teacher Tommy Armour, author of the timeless masterpiece of instruction, How to play your best golf all the time, was a master at finding a player’s problem and no one was better at accurately defining it. One day a club member approached him to schedule a lesson.


“What seems to be your problem?” questioned Armour.
“I can’t get backspin on my long-iron shots, like the pros do,” he said.
“How far do you hit your 3-iron?” asked Armour
“About 175 yards,” replied the member.
“Then why on earth would you want to put backspin on the ball?” asked Armour.

What’s your problem?

Is it lack of consistency, distance, three putting or you just want to improve but not sure how to?

Let me help you!

So stop focusing on back spin and move your golf game forward…
