Why Golf?

Golf is a game of precision, strategy, and personal growth. It’s not just about hitting a ball into a hole; it’s about mastering a set of skills that can bring immense satisfaction and enjoyment.

The Shoot Par Now Philosophy

The Shoot Par Now Learning System is built on the philosophy that golf can be both challenging and accessible. We believe that every golfer, regardless of their starting point, can learn, improve, and ultimately achieve success on the course.

The Ten Essential Learning Modules

At the heart of the Shoot Par Now Learning System are the Ten Essential Learning Modules, each focusing on a specific aspect of your golf game. These modules form the foundation of your journey:

  1. Putting: Master the art of rolling the ball smoothly into the hole with precision.

  2. Chipping: Develop your ability to make accurate short shots around the green.

  3. Pitching: Learn to control your approach shots with finesse.

  4. Lob Shots: Discover the skill of lofted shots for tricky situations.

  5. Sand Play: Conquer bunkers and hazards with confidence.

  6. Short Irons: Become proficient with your shorter irons for approach shots.

  7. Mid Irons: Hone your accuracy and control in various situations.

  8. Long Irons/Hybrids: Tackle longer distances with confidence.

  9. Fairway Woods: Find the right balance between distance and accuracy.

  10. Driver: Unlock the power of your driver for impressive tee shots.

Progressive Learning

The Shoot Par Now Learning System is designed for gradual progression. We start with the basics and build your skills step by step. The goal is to ensure that every aspect of your game is solid, from the green to the tee.

As you progress through the learning modules, you’ll have the opportunity to put your skills to the test in the Shoot Par Now 9 Hole Achievement. This challenge represents a significant milestone in your golf journey. It’s where you showcase your skills and enjoy the rewards of your hard work.

Building Confidence on the Course

The Shoot Par Now Learning System isn’t just about skills; it’s about building confidence. As you progress through the modules, you’ll find yourself better equipped to tackle golf courses with composure and precision.

Enjoyment Beyond Skill

Our ultimate goal is to help you enjoy golf to the fullest. Golf isn’t just a sport; it’s a source of camaraderie, relaxation, and personal growth. With the Shoot Par Now Learning System, you’ll experience the joy of golfing excellence.

The Journey Through Levels

Your journey through the Shoot Par Now Learning System is divided into five distinct levels, each with its own set of challenges and rewards:

Level 1: The Foundation

In Level 1, we build your golfing foundation. The distance from tee to green is set at 25 yards, allowing you to start with the basics. You’ll primarily use a Short Iron for your shots. The objective is clear: make proficient swings to get the ball onto the putting green. Once there, you aim to navigate the ball into the hole in three attempts or less. A successful hole scores you a 4. Achieve this on all nine holes, and you’ll shoot par, which is typically 36 for 9 holes. Level 1 is about early success, helping you build confidence in your golf game.

Level 2: Expanding Horizons

In Level 2, we expand your horizons. The distance increases to 50 yards, and you continue to use a Short Iron. However, your swings are more substantial, propelling the ball greater distances. Like Level 1, the goal remains the same: score 4 or better on each hole. Mastering Level 2 sets the stage for more challenges ahead.

Level 3: Transitioning to Mid-Irons

Level 3 brings you to 100 yards from the hole. Now, you’ll transition to using Mid Irons, which require a bit more skill. The swings become larger, and balance and rhythm become essential. The objective remains unchanged: get your first swing on or near the green. If you’re on the green, you putt; if not, you utilize the chipping and pitching techniques you’ve learned from the 10 skill modules. Level 3 marks a significant step forward in your golfing journey.

Level 4: Embracing Longer Shots

At Level 4, you’ll find yourself 150 yards from the hole. This is where the game gets more challenging. You’ll be using Mid Irons, Long Irons, and possibly Fairway Woods or Drivers depending on your swing speed. The longer clubs demand precision, and as you move farther from the hole, your ball position changes from centered to forward, requiring a more advanced understanding of ball placement. Level 4 is all about conquering longer distances.

Level 5: The Achievement

Level 5 represents the culmination of your journey. You’re now 200 yards from the hole, and you’ve reached a point where your skills are well-rounded. You’ve mastered all clubs, from putters to drivers. Successfully completing Level 5 is a remarkable accomplishment, recognized with a framed certificate of recognition, a photo with Coach Bento, and prizes from our sponsor. It’s a celebration of your golfing achievement.

A Lifelong Journey

Throughout your journey through these levels, you’ll not only learn golf but also gain confidence and enjoyment on the course. The Shoot Par Now Learning System isn’t just about reaching Level 5; it’s about embarking on a lifelong journey of golfing excellence and satisfaction.
