(Rant today, info tomorrow 😀 )
(I am through worrying about offending people who don’t like me anyway.)
I am going to give Tiger a break today and am going to rant about Leadbetter instead. What many of you don’t realize is readers send me links and info to provoke my ire and I fall for it hook, line and sinker. Today’s post is a result of two links I was sent.
The first link would only cost me $10,000. Just read the very first “lucky 13” words.
I honestly hope that is a poor choice of words.
First off, no one at any skill level needs a complete makeover. Unless you count the complete makeover you will need back to your old game after having “The David Leadbetter Experience.”
Second, how in the (expletive deleted) can you completely makeover someone’s game in one day? Tiger and other Tour players have admitted it takes 18 months or more to make a swing change. How long would it take a mid level amateur to have a complete makeover of his whole game?…one day apparently.
Goodness gracious sakes alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For a mere $3,000, the second link sounds like fun too. In the same way having your walnuts cracked with a ball-peen hammer sounds like fun.
A mental efficiency trainer? Is this some young hottie dressed in a cheerleader outfit promising to spank you if you don’t hit your target goals?
No wonder no one gets better when working with Leadbetter. That’s not poor instruction, that’s a poor motivational approach.
I want to know what the over/under for what I would shoot after attending and implementing everything I learned at either one of these banging your head against the wall debacles.
I am putting the number at 85…as long as the course was easy, I got to play the white tees, everything inside 5 feet was a gimmie and I got to buy three mulligan tickets from the Hooters girl acting as a host in the pro shop. Oh yea, penalty strokes don’t count, Judge Smealls foot wedges allowed, free drops from all sand traps and I get to quit on 15 if it looks like I won’t hit the number. Kind of sounds like the Haney Project rules…or one of my tournament rounds 2004-2008.
Speaking of over/under, I set the number of hate emails and negative blog comments from Leadbetter licensed proteges at 12…and none of them with a sense of humor.
This blog is about what is wrong with golf and how to make it as simple as possible and more fun…so I feel the need to call out this kind of nonsense that is the epitome of everything that is wrong with golf instruction.
I wonder if these packages include 6 sessions to a chiropractor and a case of Fleet Enemas?
Probably just the $10,000 package. The $3,000 package comes with a prescription of Prozak and a $3 off coupon for Advil at Costco.
