Teaching and Coaching Methodology: The Four Steps to Mastery – Dr. Rick Jensen
Athletes will experience the following teaching and coaching methodology - The Four Steps to Mastery. This is not a swing method. It is a proven training and coaching methodology for skills development and peak performance utilized by Dr. Jensen for over two decades, resulting in 199 PGA/LPGA Tour Wins!! Dr. Rick and Henry Brunton teach this methodology to PGA/LPGA Professionals nationwide in their Certified Golf Coaches Association Training Workshops. Following the Four Steps to Mastery leads to skills acquisition and improved competition performance in time.
Step #1: Assessment/Understanding Cause & Effect
During Step #1, Coaches engage in assessment activities that benchmark skills proficiency in order to clearly identify each player’s strengths and weaknesses. Players gain valuable understanding of the factors (fundamentals, technique/club delivery, ball control, strategy and self-management) that are contributing to where and why they are losing strokes. A comprehensive personalized training and practice plan will be created for each Athlete to follow with the support of the Coaching Staff so that the athlete can build skill, develop confidence and be able to in shoot lower scores in competition.
Step #2: Supervised Practice – Skills Acquisition and Improvement
During Step #2, the Coaching Staff creates an optimal practice environment. Coaches lead and supervise specific practice activities aligned with the goals outlined in the Performance Plan. Athletes will benefit from a high volume of deliberate practice- lots of focused repetitions with appropriate feedback delivery from coaches. During this step, the player is engaged in practice with the deliberate intention of improving his or her skills. Coaches make themselves available during practice to support learning and skill acquisition.
Step #3: Transfer Training – Taking it from the Practice Tee to the Course/Competition
During Step #3, Coaches expose participants golf skills to conditions that simulate those that they would experience on the golf course under competition. Transfer training creates the opportunity for players to build habits that can withstand pressure and ever-changing conditions. In this stage, golfers learn to practice like they play and play like they practice.
Step #4: Play
During Step #4, teaching and coaching golfers to have effective playing skills, our Coaches incorporate on-course skills training to help athletes play the game better where the game is played – on the golf course. During these on-course coaching sessions, the coach provides guidance in the skills of decision-making and self-management, while also making note of ball-control skills that need further development.
