Periodization

In “Periodization A Guide to Volume & Intensity of Training & Competition”, Golf Canada writes “Simply put, periodization is time management. Periodization involves creating very detailed training, competition and recovery plans in an effort to ensure that an athlete “peaks” at the right time.”

In golf, scheduling your training is incredibly important, as the technique learning phases are most successful without interruption from performance or skill phases. In other words, it’s tough to change your swing mid-season.

Creating this plan is a unique process for each golfer, and is designed during the first few sessions of the Winter Coaching Program.

We have access to an indoor teaching studio, heated driving range stalls, an indoor putting area, technologies such as Trackman and Boditrak, in addition to video swing analysis, to help you build the technically sound swing you can rely on.

The coaching system (see link above), is the most effective way to accomplish this. Let’s give your game a chance this year and work the swing technique in December, January and February, so we can move to performance and skill in March and April leading up to the golf season.

Trackman Combine

TrackMan Combine is a standardized test that enables you to identify the strengths and weaknesses in your golf game. Last week I went through the combine quite quickly (30 minutes) after not having practiced in a few months. You can see that there are some strengths, and some weaknesses!

We can use this tool to identify gaps in your yardages, weaknesses in certain shots/yardages, and an overall snapshot of where your ball striking is at.

The graphic below shows a summary of my combine. You’ll see that driving is my weakest, and 80 yards is my strongest. My next best are 100 and 180, which makes me very curious as to why I didn’t see a better pattern as the distance increased.

Here is a Trackman video explaining the Combine.

What’s your combine score? You can do the Trackman Combine on your own at the Golf Canada Centre in about an hour ($42/hour). The staff can help set it up.
