Day 1: Putting
It is day one of the “Handicap on Track” tour of the Le Bureau International Golf Series 2012. A truly impressive sight greeted the group in the morning when a rain shower which came from the desert in Morrocco left everything including the cars covered in a thin layer of sand. Well, not only sand as the picture shows!
It was off to the Oceanico Millennium Course for the group today to focus on one of the most important and often neglected parts of the game, putting. Graham Kaye, the former Swiss national golf team coach, explained the importance of being able to read the greens correctly and used elastic putting alignment aids to help the golfers visualise the ideal line of the putt.
Graham Kaye has been coaching for over 30 years and he is a great believer in the fact that coaching should not be confined to the driving range only. His teaching philosophy is based on mechanical and technological know-how combined with respect for the individual’s physiological and psychological make-up. Graham believes that golfers can improve their games regardless of age, current ability level, or experience and there is something truly inspirational about this philosophy which can give clients a lot of confidence.
Dominique Rey of Le Bureau said: “It was such a beautiful sunny day here in Portugal and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. We obviously worked very hard on our putting but Graham´s coaching and his clever aids made everything look really simple. He showed us today that once you start thinking about your putting a little bit more and develop a better understanding you can make a real difference to your game and to your handicap. Most of the golfers in the group managed to hole some impressive putts today which they would never normally hole before. And we all know that confidence is a big part of this game.”
