To complete their course titled Game Improvement II, second-year students in the Bachelor of Business – Golf Management Degree Program traveled to Orlando Florida over the 2012 fall Reading Week.
The course, led by CPGA member Doug Wilson “builds on information provided and skills developed in Game Improvement I with a continued emphasis on player development achieved through required practice and playing opportunities. Benchmarking and self analysis (are) a key focus with the additional emphasis on student mastery of full-swing analysis and putting performance software and teaching tools. Students will understand and articulate the positive effects that proficient club making, club fitting and course management strategies can have on player development and improvement.”
Course topics for this trip include:
- Concepts of biomechanics and energy transfer as it relates to an effective golf swing
- Performance goal setting and effective practice strategies
- Handicapping the long iron, short iron, sand play, and putting aspects of one’s game
- Digital software analysis for both full swing and putting stroke improvement
- The art of club making and club fitting
- Course management strategies
In addition to their formal studies, students competed in a spirited Ryder Cup style week-long event and enjoyed a visit from Canadian touring professional Ian Doig (pictured below).
