The gurus were out in full force working individually with each of the lucky participants trying to give them the insight that had taken each to the top in their respective fields.
My main concern is off the tee. If I can get it into play and not take any penalties strokes by pushing them way right and hooking one left - if I can get off the tee alright - Im not worried at all, stated Kevin the marketing rep on his meeting with Lou Holtz.
It took some manhandling by motivational guru Holtz, but the University of South Carolina football coach started making some inroads with Kevin on how to stay relaxed, keep positive thoughts running through his mind and also how to play to ones own strengths.
Wild Bill, who only took up golf a year ago, finally got to take what he had been learning out on the golf course, and without out the use of a safety net. Playing a long par-5, Wild Bill had a swing and miss to start but rebounded with a good drive right down the fairway. He then hit a perfect lay up to within a 100-yards. His approach shot found a bunker then blasted out to 12-feet, but unfortunately couldnt convert the par save.
Halfway across the country, fashion guru Marty Hackel had a little surprise twist when he met up with Summer to discuss wardrobe ideas for the mother of three. Not only did the pair do some serious shopping and coordinating of outfits, but Marty then took Summer out to a Champions Tour event to show off her new treads, meeting Hale Irwin and Larry Nelson along the way.
Its been a great day. Thank you for bringing me here and introducing me to all these fabulous players, responded Summer after her exciting trip.
Fitness instructor Kelly Blackburn, meanwhile, hooked up with Kevin for an informative session that had him working on his flexibility in order to eventually gain more distance off the tee. Admittedly, Kevin found this an area were there was much room for improvement.
Finally, Ralph the police office from California, got some good one-on-one instruction on the Natural Golf short game.
Its very easy for me to understand because Im just repeating the Natural Golf full swing with the Natural Golf short game swing and it makes it so much easier, said the increasingly confident Ralph on the effectiveness the new swing was having on his game.
Next week the fab five will once again go through the rigors of the being under the watchful eyes of the Natural Golf Makeover Challenge gurus. And although there is marked improvement in some areas, there still are some hurdles that will need to be overcome.
