    Hey Tony,
    Another great interview. I love the concept of using standardised skills tests to measure current performance and to follow up on competence development. Then, using the results to set up each individual trainings plan is top shelf. I always get a warm feeling in my soul when I hear someone say, “Fall in love with the process!” Anyone you can get to buy into that, is a great success story.
    All the best,
    Mike

      Mike thanks for the comment. Using standardized skill testing also makes sense to me to learn where a golfer starts from in their putting skills.

        Not only that, it is easy to compare individual progress in all areas, not just putting. It is also useful to compare performance in one area to performance in another area. Plus, you can compare the performance of golfers of the same level of scoring ability in all areas to see where one gains or loses strokes compared to the other. I used the same short game test, the Tucker Test (Jerry Tucker), for 10 years with all junior golfers I taught. I even had an exact pin position chart for our practice facility for this test. The holes were set in the same spot on the greens every time we tested. The only variables were the weather and surface conditions, just like golf. By the way, we quit calling them tests a long time ago. We refer to them as either success control, success series, competence control or competence series. It does not carry the stigma of the word “test”. Success and competence sounds way better. Kind of like February or March. As a golfer, which one sounds like more golf?
        All the best,
        Mike
