Welcome to Camp!

CAMP DESCRIPTION

Your First Par Camp is ideal for newer golfers or players coming back to the game after a long break. The Virtual Camps are designed to re-create the live camp experience – you’ll virtually feel like you are in camp. Your Camp Coach is Christina Ricci!

Unlike the live camps which run just a few days, you’ll have the opportunity to receive direct coaching throughout your camp membership. For those that prefer a self-guided experience with no direct coaching, no problem, The choice is yours!

WHEN AND HOW TO SEND SWINGS
You’ll have an opportunity to send your swing every first Saturday of the month. Make sure your camera is set to 1080p / 60p. Send two views: Face-on and Down-the-Line. Set camera at chest height and in line with your hands for both views. Shoot vertical and if not using a tripod, make sure whoever is holding the camera is ROCK STEADY. If there is any camera movement, then I cannot draw my analysis lines. I need to receive swings properly, otherwise, I will not be able to do the analysis for you. Easy to follow details will be outlined within the course, so don’t worry if this is new for you.

And just like in Camp, you’ll receive Camp welcome gifts. Woo Hoo! Part of your welcome gift includes Your First Par book. This Camp follows this great book to a tee to making it easy for you to follow along with the videos and lessons presented throughout camp. Easy-peasy lemony squeezy.

Golf has its own language. If you are new to the game or even an experienced player, it is good to be crystal clear on all golf lingo.

Mistakes are Good! 
Regardless of skill level, when a new skill set is presented, mistakes and errors are expected. This is how the brain learns to identify what is correct and not correct.

Your First Steps
The first step is to ask yourself the important questions. Why do you play? What are your game goals? Christina will guide you through this important process

No Dumb Questions
As a newer golfer, you probably have a lot of questions. Building confidence in your game begins with getting those questions answered.

What do I need for gear?
What do you need to get started in this great game?

Should I wait to get fitted? 
Christina explains who should get fitted and where to go to get your clubs.

What is the difference between wedges? 
As a newer player, you’ll use the set sand wedge. As you progress, the wedges become very important.

Should I wear a glove on the green? 
Most recreational players keep their glove on. However, ninety-nine percent of touring players take their glove off. Christina explains why.

Does it matter which golf ball I use? 
Yes. Christina explains the bet ball for newer players

Do I need to know all the rules?
Absolutely not. If you encounter a rules situation on the course. Christina provides suggestions to help you navigate the rules and etiquette of the game.

I want to play, but what if I hold others up? 
Playing golf with others, especially strangers, can be intimidating for newer players. Christina sheds light on the situation.

How much time should I allocate for practice?
The answer to this question will guide the amount of practice required to improve your game, as well as the number of lessons with a golf professional or direct coaching sessions with Christina.

SWING ESSENTIALS
Grip, Posture and Alignment are the name of the game.

Let’s Swing
It’s time to hit a ball. Yipeee! Christina walks you through step-by-step swing progressions.

Let’s Tee Off
Let’s launch this puppy with on the tee box driver essentials. We’ll cover routines, target, water, driver setup and swing keys.

Fairway Essentials
Let’s get this puppy airborne from the fairway with all the essentials. Learn about divots, the swing’s arc, impact, and lots more.

An Awesome Grip
A proper grip allows the club to hinge and unhinge with ease. An awesome grip also helps to square the face at impact. Many players struggle with maintaining a proper grip. In this section, let’s cover the essentials for a solid grip.

Understanding Posture
In this section, let’s identify the keys for both. Static posture is your address position. Dynamic posture is your swing’s posture in motion. Posture is comprised of bends and tilts (rotation), which keeps the concept of posture simple.

Alignment
An essential part of the game is getting the ball to the target. How? With great alignment.

Club Setups
In this section, we’ll cover setup with the driver all the way down to the wedge. Setup sets the stage for a successful, effortless swing. As a newer player, your goal is to groove setups from driver to wedge.

What is Swing Plane?
Before we begin our swing progression skills, let’s first understand the swing’s radius.

Takeaway Keys
The takeaway is just that. We are taking the club away from the address position.

Popular Culprits
As you groove your takeaway into the backswing, let’s make you aware of some of things that could go off, so you can stay on track to your first par. I’ll share popular culprits for both the takeaway and backswing, which really are a blend. They are pals.

Structure Begins Here
The first step to creating structure is connection. Connecting the upper arms to the torso provides a solid foundation.

At the Range
Let’s practice your new swing skills at the range!

On the Course
Are you ready to hit the course? Awesome. Christina provides tips to help transfer your range game to the course.

Target & Routine
Nerves are a natural part of the game. The key to success is to occupy the mind with positive and focused attention.

Alignment Process
Let’s show you how to create a consistent and accurate alignment process.

Fear of Water (oh-oh!)
This is very popular amongst players of all skill levels, especially players newer to the game.

Help Factor (oh-oh!)
This is very popular amongst players of all skill levels, especially players newer to the game.

Steps to Great Impact
The most important part of the golf swing is impact. That’s the point at which the club meets the ball. Getting really good at impact should be one of your primary objectives.

What’s a Divot?
Divots are created when the club enters the turf at its low point. This is a good thing.

Fairway Swing Keys

Let’s Practice!

What is the Vacation Zone?
As the name implies, a putt inside the vacation zone means no stress. The range is inside 18 inches. It’s so easy that you could tap it in playing a major PGA or LPGA event.

Equipment
Putting represents more that 50 percent of all your strokes during a round, yet few take the time to get fitted.

What is Lie Angle?
Most putters have a 70˚ lie angle. This is why the putting stroke has to swing on an arc (not straight back and straight through).
