Gotham Golf Blog has a really good post about Rickie Fowler.
One of the important points in the post is how Rickie Fowler has stuck with one coach throughout his career. He hasn’t bounced from style to style and philosophy to philosophy. I think too many golfers bounce around trying different ideas. True, it can lead them to something that eventually works, but it also may confuse them and actually hinder their learning. When somebody goes through so many ideas, tips, etc, it becomes hard to find your unique style and refine that.
I think there are too many people claiming they have THE answer to the golf swing. There needs to be a match between the instructor and the student, and the swing should be based on the things that makes that student unique.
