Lisle brings golf knowledge to Moore

(Continued)

MOORE —

And still, beyond the contraptions, the value of the initial $125 evaluation may be a bargain if only for the interview that comes with it, when Lisle or one of his instructors asks every question they can think of about your game.

One student first told Lisle putting wasn’t a big issue in his game, yet then admitted to as many as five three-putts per round when not feeling it on the greens.

Of course, that prompted Lisle to offer, “I’m going to give you my best tip of the day,” before going on to explain that distance, distance, distance, not direction, is the key to good putting.

If you ask, Lisle will explain all the contraptions at his control — “It’s been incredibly exciting to be able to use all these toys to help teach,” he said — in addition to talking up the outfit he’s gone into business with.

Basically, explains Lisle, there are about 600 GolfTEC instructors at 185 locations and already, as a national entity, GolfTEC is providing one fourth of all golf lessons in the U.S. Also, 95 percent of GolfTEC students report their game improving. And, when you think about it, a new $400 offer that.

Still, perhaps the best thing about it is the guy manning the controls, who understands the technology is terrific, yet every player’s still unique.

“You’ve got to adapt your teachings to what the student needs, not necessarily what the corporate headquarters says you need to do,” Lisle said. “And you have to be able to articulate that, maybe the same thing, 10 different ways until one of them hits home and they understand it.”

What’s the most common misconception among golfers? 

“They think they’re swinging down this line,” Lisle said, indicating a down-the-target swing path, “yet they’re swinging down the line like that,” he finished, indicating an outside-in path to the ball.
