Five-handicapper Ryan Alcock headed to Peter Barber’s Lesson Zone at Kings of Distance with a good idea of where he needed to improve with his game.
And, in his two-minute lesson, Barber – the former European Tour pro and current head professional at Didsbury Golf Club – gave him a vital tip that he’s certain he’ll work on in the coming weeks and months.
“My lesson was so good,” Alcock beamed. “Peter gave me a really good tip. I have a problem getting a little bit flippy on it so he told me to watch Tommy Fleetwood and use his swing as a bit of a drill in terms of getting my body to turn with the ball rather than getting too far in front of it so, yeah, it was fantastic.”
“It’s something that I’ve been working on due to a bit of a swing change so it struck a chord with me. That explanation and giving me something visual to watch makes a big difference so I’m definitely going to work on that on the range.”
So, what did Alcock make of the overall experience?
“It’s been really, really good,” he added. “Right from the club fitting and seeing how that can make a difference, right through to putting tips and listening to Alvaro Quiros making everything sound so simple when it comes to bunkerplay, it was just an amazing day.
“It’s all-round game improvement tips delivered in a simple to understand and in a friendly, enjoyable manner with no pressure.”
