with Dan Brooks, Duke University Women’s Head Golf Coach;
2014 NCAA Champions!
6x NCAA Champions; 17x ACC Champions, the most wins (114) of any women’s golf coach in NCAA DI historyJoin five-time Women’s National Championship Coach, Dan Brooks of Duke University as he goes through Full Swing Technique Drills.

Start out by getting a breakdown of the proper fundamentals of the grip, stance and posture, ball position and see how swing plane and alignment are crucial to the swing. Coach Brooks then gives you a quick look at a full golf lesson teaching you the most important aspects of the beginning and end of each lesson. During the golf lesson you will understand the processes it takes to give the proper feedback to your player and what questions to ask them during the lesson. Discover how “pace of improvement” is important with players you work with. Then gain knowledge of using video to analyze your players’ wing flaws, which allows the athlete to “see” vs what they feel.

Finally, Director of Golf Sports Performance at Duke University, Alex Merrill, discusses strength and conditioning exercises to prepare golfers to practice and play at a high level. Coach Merrill discusses foam roller exercises for the ankle, knees, hips, spine and shoulders; as well as dynamic warm-up exercises for injury prevention and to build balance stability and strength.
