Bill Polovich has been a professional golf instructor for over 25 years. He
passed both Business Schools 1 and 2 in the PGA of America and passed the
Playing Ability Test in 1994 with 36 holes of play and scores of 67-74.
Bill teaches individuals based on their goals and physical capabilities. His approach is to teach the fundamentals of the swing, short game, and putting. Not all great players grip, swing, or even think about the club the same way. Rather, there are margins which are defined by the swings of the best players in the world. There are many different golf swings that produce solid and straight shots. Each golfer simply needs to find a swing they can comfortably reproduce that stays within proven margins.
The margins are defined for every part of the game from the mental approach to practice routines, pre-shot routines, posture, alignment, grip, swing plane, arm positioning, tempo, clubface positioning, and much more. Bill's goal is to provide students with a better understanding of those margins and the specific changes which need to be made so significant improvement will be attained and goals reached.
Bill believes when the basic fundamentals are understood the rest is all mental.
A rounder swing path can cure a slice. Make swings on the side of a tee box where an imaginary ball would be teed up above your feet. If you swing too steeply, you'll hit the ground before the ball.
Too much grip pressure will prevent you from hinging and unhinging the club, but too little will keep you from swinging with power or control. So what's the right amount? When you take your grip, hold the club in front of your chest so the shaft is parallel to the ground. Then raise the shaft so it's perpendicular to the ground. Feel how much easier it is to hold? That's the correct grip pressure.
A wristy putting stroke can make distance and direction control a nightmare. To fix this, practice putting with the leading edge of your sand wedge. To roll the ball properly, your wrists can’t hinge.
