Helmed by LPGA Class A instructor Kathy Hester, Mississippi?s OnTarget Golf Schools build smooth, dependable swings during six one-hour, weekly classes. The six-session program allows instructors to mold pupils? form by breaking the swing down into its component parts, introducing sound techniques and allowing ample practice repetitions to commit concepts to muscle memory, where they will join riding a bicycle and swallowing oversize jawbreakers on command. Golf gurus also teach clubbers to hit practice shots with a target in mind, developing a subconscious association between their ball?s destination and the shot required to reach it. Clients can consult the schedule for upcoming classes. Online map directions might not be completely accurate, so customers should call ahead if they've never visited any of the courses before. Clubs will be available upon request.
