    Re: Nick Starchuck

    Would have to agree.

    biggest difference I've seen so far is, even when I have NOTHING during the round, the spray circle is still fairly tight. There are a few key points that he's asked me to be aware of in case the swing leaves me and I find that EXTREMELY helpful under the gun.

    Case in point, played Coppinwood a couple of weeks ago. Wasn't my best ball striking day by far and still managed to hack around in a 83 in a tourney. Last year under someone else's tutelage I had to play out of my head just to get around in low 80s in tourney situations. When I got the bump to the flight I am in currently last year, out of 4 events I never broke 90. First event out with a swing that's still very much a work in progress I'm under 85. Realistically I couldn't ask for a better start at the moment.

      It goes to show you that knowledge is the limiting factor, not ability. A great communicator can help you understand what you need to do. Once understood, the execution is more likely to occur. The great practice swing you have before hitting the ball actually becomes your true swing when striking the ball. Sounds like Nick nailed it for you. Congrats and good luck.

        Nick makes it stupid easy to understand!
        Games has been in a rut for past 19 months and I'm starting to get out of it and a lot better then I was before with the help of Nick. Only a few weeks in, I can not wait till a month of two from now how far I can go with my game!

                Nick is a great communicator and makes it really easy to understand what he is trying to teach.

                Having done a session in winter and another one in April, I would highly encourage anyone who is on the fence but wants to improve to take the full day session. You won't regret it(although your body will tell otherwise after hitting so many range balls

                I am looking forward to being able to take the revamped swing on the course!

                    Firstly, I concur that seeing Nick is very good for ones ball striking. My game has improved a ton seeing him only a few times. Need to get out to see him soon actually.


                    I played Century Pines today - the 10th hole is a 307 yard dog leg left. From the blue tee box I hit the most amazing draw, the ball started off nice and straight down the middle and then the ball turned from right to left right around the corner of the dog leg!!! The ball ended up 30 yards from the green right in the middle of the fairway - it had gone 277 yards!
                    Not too burst the bubble of good feelings but this hole is nowhere near 307. Google Earth has it at 280 from the back of the blue deck to the back of the green. 240ish from the middle blues will put you center green.

                      Nick is awesome! He comes over to help his students when he sees them at the range. He saw me hitting my driver on the range and came over to chat. In just 2 mins, he changed my drive from a high slice to a sweet baby draw (30 yds instant increase)!

                      Since I started working with him, I am hitting the ball longer, purer, and more consistently than ever before!

                      Thank you Nick!

                          Not to derail the thread, but I don't put too much stake in Google Earth for course measurements.
                          I'll Google Earth my home course, which I've been playing for 17 years and know like the back of my hand, and check out shots that I've used the rangefinder on.
                          I find the Google Earth measurements can be off by as much as 10-15 yards per 100 yard measurement.
                          Not always though... some are bang on. It's kind of wierd actually.
                          My theory is it depends on the 'angle' of that particular satellite picture.
                          i.e. If you get a spot where it was directly overhead, the measurement is more accurate... but if the satellite was more 'off to the side' the distances get skewed.

                            Pretty sure they measure that along the dog leg. Anyway, didn't mean to steal the theme here ;-) It's great to see that Nick has you firing great shots. I too highly recommend his services and he's helped a couple of my friends including my brother.

                              If that's that case, I can really smoke my 5 wood which I put on the right fringe there several times at year and I usually play black tees there ;-) On other courses, my 5wood is a 230-240 club.
