Learning how to play golf at a higher level is a journey. Are you are in the middle of your golf journey but can’t figure out where to go next? The Hal Sutton Golf Academy is committed to enhancing your journey with top-notch instruction presented in a stimulating fashion.
The game of golf that we all love is made up of a long game and a short game. In order to be great you must be proficient in both but seldom are you equally talented at both.
In all my days on the tour, I never saw anyone turn their weakness into their strength but I did see some, including myself, hurt their strength by devoting too much time to their weakness. A great swing is an exact sequence of events that starts from the ground up. Great posture with good balance is the start of something good. There is also a conscious mind and a subconscious mind and learning when to go mindless is an art.
At the Hal Sutton Academy, you will learn what all of this “feels” like. If you can “feel it” you can repeat it. Today, most everyone is under the impression that golf is made up of a bunch of technical “mumbo jumbo numbers.” Do you think Ben Hogan would’ve been better or worse if he had known what the exact angle or speed were on that particular shot? Well, we will never know that answer but I will say for sure that he “felt” the exact sequence of events of a great golf swing with as much efficiency as anyone that has ever played the game.
At the Hal Sutton Academy our focus will be “feel” and understanding what that means to the swing. Though we are equipped with today’s technology, you will need to know what those numbers “feel” like. Technology is conscious and “feel” is more subconscious. All great rounds seem like they were easy with little thought because you were “feeling it” instead of thinking it.
Our academy has a world class par-3 course designed by Chet Williams as well as the ultimate practice facility equipped with the latest technology. Here you can learn firsthand that distance is great but it’s really great iron play and short game that lowers scores. Whether it’s a one-on-one lesson or a corporate retreat we can take you to a higher level of understanding the game.
