In this modern era of golf instruction with all its tools and technologies, we as instructors have better diagnostic information than ever. The Golfing Machine represents a unique perspective through which to interpret this information and establish clear priorities for our students. The Golfing Machine textbook offers a systematic pathway to improvement by providing numerous options and interchangeable components which can be custom-tailored to the students needs. Join us for a spirited discussion about this respected system which is utilized by dozens of Golf Digest top 100 instructors. We will discuss the influence of The Golfing Machine in instructional history, some of it’s great practitioners and players and share ideas through which your teaching can become more efficient, systematic and effective.
