February 16 2011From The Abysmal Depths Of Despair To The Soaring Heights Of Bliss In Six Days
Day 1: (Friday) - I play John McKimmie in first round of the handicap challenge. A strong and steady competitor, but I am getting 9 shots. I must at least give him a game. Come off the 16th having been annihilated and am in the depths of despair with my game. I pass the Pro Shop and remember a recent advert about turning your game around with a performance analysis session. Go in and talk to Cliff. He fits me in... in 4 days time for the full Monty of 8 hours.
Day 2: (Saturday) - Play in the monthly stableford at Wimbledon Park. Endure untold misery and come off 18th with 27 points, resolve never to play golf again.
Day 3: (Sunday) - Cancel golf; I am so desperate that I do some DIY at home, at a not much better standard than my golf.
Day 4: (Monday) - Total desperation, go to work. I haven't even got a real job!
Day 5: (Tuesday) - Hope springs eternal, so I turn up at WH for my session with Cliff. 8 hours later, after a most enjoyable and instructive day on all aspects of my game, I have a shower and go home.
Day 6: (Wednesday) - Play in the midweek stableford at Wimbledon Park, score 39 points (only because I topped my drive and eventually shanked from the middle of the fairway on the last), and won the competition.
Morale - However badly you are playing, sign up for a performance analysis with Guy or Cliff. Your game will improve, because the system is excellent and the two of them are exceptional teachers. They are worth every penny you spend.

"Thanks Guy for last Friday`s lesson and your subsequent summary of our session, which I am delighted to report have produced immediate results. Winning the Malibu in Saturday`s Christmas Stableford was a first for me and particularly satisfying since I lost out to Jim Sweetzer, on countback, for the same prize only a year or so ago. Clearly your game improvement programme is working for me and yesterday`s success is yet another triumph for you, to rank alongside your many other successes which have been reported in recent Newsletters! Keep up the good work."
