Four Keys to Success

- Controlling Swing Bottom
- Managing Face & Path
- Creating Speed
There is no one-size fits all!
I’ve always been a big believer in creating efficient golf swings based on the natural ability of the golfer. It’s a very difficult task to ask everyone to attempt to move and swing the golf club the same knowing that we as people are all built and wired differently both internally and externally. My goal as your golf coach is to find the optimal golf swing for you and you only.There are many different ways to swing the golf club and see similar results!
Assess. Plan. Improve
A developed process for all new golfer’s to help you reach your goals as fast as possible. The initial assessment begins with a questionnaire and goal building. A complete assessment of the game then begins using technology to get baseline data. After the data is received, Bill will build a plan of action based on the players goals to begin the improvement process. The player will have a complete understanding of what needs to be improved, why the improvement is needed, and how the improvement will take place.
III PILLARS TRAINING
Learn the most efficient way for you to control the body and golf club. Proper individual movements and positions will allow you to control the swing bottom, the clubface, the path, and help maximize speed. Together, you’ll have the best ball control of your life!
Understand the most efficient way to maximize your practice habits. Tired of working on your game and not getting anything out of it? We’ve got the fix for you. Learning our various practice models will help you transfer your hard work to the course allowing for lower scores!
The most important phase. Will teach you how to best go about playing the game of golf rather than playing golf swing while out on the course. You’ll learn the best way for you to think and manage your way around the golf course allowing for more enjoyment and improved play!
The BS3 Performance Golf Academy provides high end coaching to golfers of all ages and abilities.
Lead by Director of Instruction Bill Schmedes III, the academy offers a number of different programs for golfers of all ages and abilities from adults to juniors. Each golfer will go through a comprehensive evaluation using Trackman radar, K-Vest motion measurement, SAM PuttLab, and BodiTrack pressure mat technology. Following this, a game plan is put in place based on the players goals.
Once a game plan is agreed to by both parties the golfer will get a detailed training program using the Coach Now training portal. This provides the golfer with a clear understanding of what must be improved, how it must be practiced, and how to take it to the golf course. Each golfer will learn how to work within their 3 Pillars: Dynamics, Preparation, and Execution. The Pillars allow for one to make individual changes in technique, movements, practice, and playing habits. Each Pillar will be customized to the player!
