Beginner Level (1, 2 & 3)
1. Introduction of Basic Sequencing (Putting and Chipping)
clubface position, ball position, stance, posture, grip and stroke / swing
basic green reading (elevation and curvature)
for both putting and chipping
2. Pitching & Bunker Play
Purpose of pitching explained
Basics of how to hit an explosion shot
Setup ( grip, stance, ball position, ball position)
Swing (takeaway, transition, impact, follow through)
3. Full Swing Basics (Irons, Hybrids, Fairway Metals and Driver)

Transition Level (4 & 5)
1. Additional Fundamentals
Giving the player additional mechanics in all areas (Putting, Chipping, Pitching, Bunker Play and Full Swing). Expanding the player repertoire on how to practice and execute shots is the call for the Transitional player. Bolstering their skills in preparation for tournaments is paramount.
Advanced / Elite Level (6, 7, 8, 9 and level 10)
Once the player reaches this level of the program, they have mastered the basics of short game (putting, chipping, pitching and bunker play) and are looking to improve on distance control, trajectory control and tighter dispersion patterns. Continued development on all short game shots, along with introducing flop shots, and bad lies (fluffy, hard pan, divots).
For the full swing giving the player the knowledge on how to hit draws, fades, trouble shots and changing trajectory is the next progressive step in their development.
Improved on-course strategy and management is covered at this level. Once the player has reached this level of competency, they are at the High School level in preparation for college.
