Coaching for the quick
Get a Lesson from Aaron Baddeley to Jumpstart Your Golf Season
By Brendon Elliott, PGA
Every week, there are many stories that professional tour players share with regular-day golfers.
One of those moments occurred earlier this month at Hawaiis Sony Open.
On the heels of a sponsor’s exemption, Aaron Baddeley — the once heralded Aussie talent who burst onto the golf scene as a teenager — finished tied for seventh, with a 65-65 weekend at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu. Baddeley is now ranked just outside of the 500th spot on the Official World Golf Rankings. He has four PGA Tour wins in his career, including the 2016 Barbasol Championship.
PGA has given Baddeley a new lease of life, despite the time that has passed since his last tour win.
In a recent interview with the PGA Tour’s Cameron Morfit, Baddeley explained how encouraged he was with where his game was headed.
“I can honestly say I feel like my best golf is in front of me, just with how simplified Mike [Adams] has made my game,” says Baddeley. “To be able to come into the Sony Open not really hitting it very well, to then having one of my best ball-striking rounds ever — thats pretty cool.”
Golf is difficult. We all know this. It’s difficult for all who play; even the world’s best players like Baddeley. They often make it look easy, but the reality is that it’s not.
Professional golf requires elite play. This is why it takes hours of hard work every day to maintain an elite level of play. We, whether we are elite, intermediate or beginner, can take comfort in the fact that playing golf is a lifetime sport and there is always a chance to improve.
Sometimes, all you need to improve your golf game is a positive outlook and a plan. Aaron Baddeley gives it a try. . . why can’t you?
