Yes and No…Let me explain, while the intention is for a 24 hour package to be done in 3 months, a 46 hour in 6 months, a 72 hour in 9 months and a 96 hour in 12 months, there is indeed wiggle room. I understand the difficulties of scheduling for the modern family. If a student falls considerably behind the suggested pace, then we will tackle that situation as it comes.

A Package Approach
I am not a Coach that subscribes to an individual lesson here or there as a student or their parent sees fit. My philosophy revolves around a commitment of purchasing lesson packages ranging in amounts of 24, 48, 72 or 96 hours. During an initial discovery meeting, a lengthy discussion is had to gain information from a potential student regarding their desire to commitment to getting better and achieving goals. Should the outcome of the meeting be one where we agree that progress can be made, I will formulate a plan. The bases of the plan comes from a combination of the initial talk, testing in various areas of a students game, and several assessments I have the student go through. The execution of our agreed upon plan, between the student and myself, is done through my partnership with Ikonik Golf, a breakthrough coaching platform and app.
The idea of the 24, 48, 72 or 96 hour packages is to finish these in 3, 6, 9 or 12 months respectfully. However, as a husband, and parent of two myself, I understand the scheduling challenges of the modern family and will surely adapt accordingly to that.
In Person Sessions
I am a believer in making sure in-person coaching sessions remain focused and relatively short. In general, I feel no session should go past two hours at any one time. On occasion, as I see fit, a session over two hours may be conducted but will have numerous breaks. My bases for this belief comes from a study I read that came from Brain Balance.

“The golf swing is like a suitcase into which we are trying to pack one too many things.”
Through our use of the Ikonik Golf platform and app, the real work is done based on what the student does in-between our in person sessions. Examples of sessions that do breach my overarching philosophy of shorter sessions include the occasional playing lesson, observation session, or a testing session.
The Real Work Happens Between Sessions
As I made mention previously, the most valuable work is done in-between our in-person coaching sessions. This is the time when students, through repetition, groove those concepts we work on during in-person sessions. The beauty of using the Ikonik Golf platform and app is that students are always able to reach me or reference things we have been working on…its all right their on the app. The app has a “Chat” section where an ongoing dialogue takes place between the student and myself.
It is very important to stress the fact that I have a core belief that FUN should be at the heart of what we do. When I reference the word “Work” is not at all with intentions of that being a dirty word 🙂

“I have had the pleasure of not just knowing, but working with Brendon on several occasions…and no one has more passion for growing the game with junior golfers than he does. Sheer determination and confidence in his plan has impressed me over and over across multiple initiatives. He wears his heart on his sleeve and goes above and beyond the call of duty.”
My Personal Mission
I’m a constant work in progress that has one simple desire…to help others, particularly our youth, love the game of golf as much as I do. In whatever form they choose to consume it…Playing for recreation or competition, looking to work in the field, or simply talking shop about the greatest game in the world. I love nothing more than being able to share my 25+ years of experiences in the game to enhance others personal experience with it today.
