Level 2 Curriculum

In this course we move beyond the basics with more advanced studies of ball flight faults from a swing shape perspective and case studies of effective unorthodox 1 and 2 plane swings. We build on Level 1 topics with further advanced application of short game and video analysis. A personality profiler will help instructors to understand their strengths and weaknesses as well as determining the learning styles of their students. Great emphasis is placed on live lessons. Participants conduct live lessons which count toward their Level 2 examination grade. We close with a tutorial on how to conduct online lessons using the Plane Truth Online Lesson System.
