  • THE POSITION OF THE BALL1) The position of the ball is crucial, the paths and the effects would depend on it.2) For the right-handed persons: In front of the left heel with a left foot slightly open.3) The position of the ball and the opening of the left foot would move around to the

    right or the left according to the distance and the club to be used.4) On the other hand, with a driver, the ball would be placed towards the left foot tip

    with a more opened foot.5) With a pitching-wedge, the ball would be in the center towards the right foot, the

    left foot would be less opened.

    THE VISUAL ROUTINEThis visual routine that you would apply permanently on the golf course will enableyou to gain a lot of points and lower your handicap rapidly.1) Evaluate the distance between the ball and the target.2) Evaluate the lie of the ball in relation to the shot to be played.3) Evaluate the dangers that would separate you from the target.

    CONCLUSIONThe Marc-Antoine Farrys method is complete as you will learn:1) The technique.2) The mental strategy.3) The rules and the etiquette.

    Within the Marc Farry Academy, the instructors would not only dispense a simplemethod of learning but they would have at their disposal a methodology based on:1) Listening.2) Observation.3) Clear, accurate and understandable explanations.4) Solutions and ways to stabilize your game, work on its development and

    consistency.5) Practice, educational tools and video.6) Diagnosis and a swing analysis.7) Each player will receive an assessment and an individual coaching plan.

    MARC FARRYS TEACHING METHODEvery player is unique! I would like to provide a specific lesson thattakes into account your morphology, your age, your sportive experienceas well as your motivation whether you are a man, a woman or a junior.My method is based on the learning of the 4 Fundamentals:

    the grip the posture the alignment the ball positionEvery student should first integrate these fundamentals in order to goahead onto the fifth element, Visual Routine.

    THE GRIP1) Hold the club with your fingers rather than in your palm.2) The pressure should be light at the address position, as it would

    naturally increase when the club would leave the ground during theexecution of the shot.

    3) Take into account the difference between the hands that holdthe club to the wrists that have a more expressive role.

    THE POSTURE1) Share out equally the body weight on both feet.2) Respect the internal gap of the feet, which should be equal to the

    shoulders width.3) Maintain the good relation shoulder - arm - left hand on the golf club

    without any muscular tension.4) Keep the back perfectly flat with relaxed shoulders and the feet well


    THE ALIGNMENT1) A good alignment will avoid compensations.2) Place yourself at 1m - 1m50 behind the ball.3) Imagine the path of your ball in the air.4) Find a reference point on the ground between the ball and the target.5) Take your alignment in relation to that reference point and keep it.
