Highlander LLC School of Golf
One stop source for all your golf swing instruction and technical training needs
Take a look at a sample newsletter with a special feature on playing at St Andrews, the home of golf..
My name is Les Ross, welcome to our website. I am the founder of Highlanderllc School of Golf which is based in San Rafael California and author of "Breaking the Distance Barrier". Let me take this opportunity to introduce myself and tell you more about our newsletter.
I started my golf passion in the small town of Kitwe in Zambia from any early age. Since the prospects for a golf career were limited in that part of Africa, I found myself studying engineering in Glasgow Scotland after high school. Having spent more than 25 years in the engineering world, my career has come full circle to where I am now back working full time as a golf instructor and technical author.
My other passion in life is physical fitness. I have taught physical fitness for more than 20 years in the rugby world. Matching this experience with an engineering understanding of the mechanics of the golf swing and an understanding of the new technology behind golf, I have developed a unique perspective around the game that I am eager to share with people.
Although I have been told that I am not your "typical golf instructor", my background reflects the direction that the modern game has been moving over the last ten years which has been towards the rapid development of engineering technology in golf equipment and towards physical fitness conditioning at the top levels of play. That range of knowledge is reflected in all aspects of our teaching material.
I started Highlander School of Golf because I saw an opportunity to bring this approach over the internet directly to you to give you a personal and affordable option for increasing your knowledge of this wonderful game at times that are flexible to your schedule. I also want to provide you with a one stop source to meet all your other technical needs.
I am a firm believer that the golf swing is a natural physical movement if allowed to move unrestricted. My overall approach to teaching golf is to help you understand both the mental and physical restrictions that impact your "natural "swing and to direct you towards improved swing consistency and power by applying simple golf physics - a topic that is beginning to gain more ground in the golf world today.
Ultimately my overall aim is to help you lower your scores by showing you how to produce those great shots that make this game so exciting.
As our business name suggests, we have a close tie with Scotland. Each newsletter opens with an article about golf courses in Scotland. Some famous, some not so famous. There are many great courses that are little known that offer the visitor a great golfing venue as well as offer the rest of the family a great vacation spot. Should you ever find yourself planning a vacation in Scotland, the information in these articles will give you a starting point for your trip.
The technical content sections of the newsletter follows our teaching philosophy:
The first section of the newsletter presents an article that focuses on golf strategy, the aim of which is to help you "think outside of the box" about the game to select the optimum approach that gives you the best scoring opportunities by making the best use of your skills. This process is also designed to help you relieve some of the "mental" pressure from your swing which is critical for forging consistency.
The second section presents an article on how to improve your swing consistency by making you aware of the "physical restrictions" of your body that may be impacting the mechanics and fundamentals of your swing. This awareness of your "natural" swing is another key ingredient for achieving consistency and optimizing the power of your swing.
In the third section I include an article that focuses on tips to improve swing power by making you more aware of the "physics of the swing" that will explain how power is generated in different areas of the body. Understanding "why" this works guides you towards making technique adjustments that will further optimize the power potential of your swing.
In the fourth section, I give you a golf fitness routine that is specifically aimed at increasing the strength and flexibility of the muscles of focus in the swing power discussion.
From time to time we may send you a specific mini newsletter that covers a specific technical aspect of the game. We may also inform you of the latest online seminars that have been added to the Highlander School of Golf web site menu for those who wish to dig into these topics a little deeper, along with overviews of any new or interesting golf E Books from other authors who have similar teaching philosophies.
At the moment our seminar library is small. However, each month we add new topics to the list that will cover many different aspects of the game. We may also feature reviews on golf courses outside of Scotland that have been submitted by our subscribers who want to share an enjoyable experience with other readers.
My hope is that you will find the information in the newsletter and our website interesting and beneficial, and you will use them as a major source for developing your game. Our company is pioneering a new medium for golf instruction and as such I welcome any of your comments or suggestions about any subject matter that would make our website or newsletter match your instruction needs.
Take full advantage of this free quality information that I guarantee will make a difference to your game by signing up for the newsletter.
I look forward to working with you personally in the future.
