Nobody likes to go to school. Even golf schools must overcome the stigma that they are too demanding, all work and no play. That’s not the case with the Dave Pelz Scoring Game School at The Homestead. This unique school focuses on your short game. You won’t spend all day on the range pounding balls, getting blisters and worrying about swing plane.
The Pelz schools are uniquely tailored to work on the various shots on and around the greens that ultimately make the difference on your scorecard. If you’re still unsure of what to expect from the school, sign up for a one-day program. It’s akin to reading cliff notes of a novel.
You’ll learn many of the key Pelz concepts from instructor Stefan Carlsmith in a fun and enriching six-hour session. Pelz One-Day Clinics run Tuesday or Wednesday until August 28 at the exclusively designed practice area near the Great Hall at Camp Firefly. The 6-to-1 student-to-instruction ratio ensures individual attention.
The schedule will include hitting pitch shots on the range to dial in shots up to 30 yards. From there, students graduate to bunker practice out of the sand. The signature drill is learning “bump-and-run” chip shots with an 8-iron. Years of studying statistics has convinced Pelz that rolling the ball like a putt is the wisest play for most amateurs.
Speaking of putting, Pelz instructors use a practice aid that shows people why they have a hard time understanding where to aim a putt to make it. The lessons are informative and will have you quickly applying the skills you learn to greatly improve your game.
That alone is worth the cost of the six-hour session. For more, visit www.pelzgolf.com.
