Golf is not a simple game, but it should be taught in a simple fashion. It can also be taught with humour: These statements sum up Gordon’s teaching philosophy.
Moving a ball from here to there by propelling it with a club is a task easy to comprehend. However when you explore all that surronds this undertaking, you have quite another matter indeed: Equipment, psychology, human anatomy, rules, training and practice, swing technique, course architecture. The list goes on and that is why the game of golf is a challenge that requires a lifetime of learning.
The purpose of the Gordon Young Golf Schools is to help make the teaching/learning environment and experience as productive as possible.
