In the first place you have to accept that you cannot always play this game at the same level. Even the best players in the world have their slumps. You just have to make sure that when you hit a slump, you get out of it as quick as possible. The longer you leave it, the harder it will become to get back on top of your game again.


A sign of going into a slump is if your handicap has gone out a few strokes in the last couple of months. If you are having trouble with a consistent mistake (hook, slice, missing short putts, loosing distance) then you are in a slump.

If you go for a lesson you can find out exactly what your mistake is and which drills you need to correct it.

Very few golfers actually understand how their own swings work. At the BF GOLF ACADEMY we aim to give you a better understanding of your own swing and why you tend to hit certain bad shots. This will enable you to correct your mistakes easier when things go wrong on the course.

A regular check-up will also prevent bad habits to creep into your game.

Just remember that every golfer has his/her own individual technique.  It is almost like a person’s own finger print. At the BF GOLF ACADEMY we do not try to change your style, but merely to assist you in ironing out the flaws that cause bad shots.

The amount of time and effort you put into practice after a golf lesson will also determine how quickly you will be able to sort out your problems. Unfortunately I still see too many golfers practice on the driving range and all that happens isthat their mistakes are being grooved. Remember it is not the quantity of time that you put into your game, but the quality of practice.

I am aware of so many golfers who make the same mistakes week in and week out.

A constructive session with a PGA Teaching Professional can help you to enjoy your game so much more.
