This is episode 7 in the acclaimed series, Teaching Pam To Play Golf. In this episode, Pam finds herself in the bunker, which the pros say is the easiest shot – but not so easy for amateurs. Stan’s focus in this episode is to get Pam comfortable with the concept of hitting the sand onto the green, and then the ball has to follow.
In this series we will follow Pam as she begins her odyssey to learn the game of golf. Her instructor, Stan Geer, will take Pam from the putting green back to the tee box. In other words, Pam will learn to first putt, then chip, pitch, hit iron shots and finally make her way to the tee box with a driver.
The concept is to start her with what is arguably the hardest, and most important, part of golf for amateurs – the short game. Because the short game is as much about feel as it is technique, Pam will be honing her sense of feel, without even thinking about it. At each stage of the way Pam learns the fundamentals, practices on her own and once Pam and Stan feel she has made sufficient progress, then it is on to the next step. And so on, until she arrives at the tee box with her driver in hand.
So tune in, and root for Pam, as she makes her way around the golf course. And, if you’re in Naples, visit Pam at Vi at Bentley Village
