Golf Teaching and Training Services

Robert Dickman
2016 Illinois PGA Teacher of the Year

Bob Dickman’s philosophy is based on challenging the status quo in everything he does.To this end, he will help you build a golf  swing that integrates swing style with a players natural movement pattern that produces a swing efficiency that is verifiable. Bob is a long time Level 3 Titleist Performance Institute Golf Professional. More than 35 years of study and practice has enabled Bob to employ teaching methods which have revolutionized the game of golf.

So what does your first golf lesson with Bob Dickman look like?

Golf lessons with Bob begin with a detailed physical screen of your body.  This screen is designed to determine your body's capabilities and limitations relative to the golf swing.  From there Bob evaluates your golf swing under 3D analysis to look for movement patterns that equate to swing efficiency or deficiencies.  Video analysis may be used at this point.  Video is like an x-ray of the swing whereas 3D analysis is like an MRI of the entire movement, it reveals much more.  After Bob screens the body and looks at the efficiency of your golf swing he looks to see how the golf club and golf ball are performing using the Trackman launch monitor. The Trackman gives 22 data points showing what the ball and club are do at impact.

Using this technical data, Bob draws on his 35 years of experience to make changes that optimize the student's power source based on what  the strengths and weaknesses of the student are.  He begins work on making a change by creating a motor pattern based on feel with the student . This change will set off a series of positive movements and swing deficiencies will begin to disappear. Bob's ability to find the true culprits of poor motion and help each student make a positive change is what what differentiates Bob from other golf instructors.

The student then ingrains these changes using a variety of kinestetic and visual  techniques for the continuation of the lesson. Random skill development  techniques  allow the motor pattern development to transfer to the course are employed later in the lesson.

The following schedule of rates and packages was designed to match your needs with a format that will coach you to meet your goals. Bob  will use all of his knowledge, professional associations  and diagnostic technologies (Trackman, BodiTrak Ground Reaction Sensor,, K-Motion 3D Capture,and V1 High Speed video) during training to help you Play Better Golf! 

It is a law of motor learning that the sooner you test your skills after a lesson the sooner you will be able to bring the change to the course.  Most lessons will  allow time for instruction and Trackman administered testing or golf course training during the session. It has proven to be the ideal amount of time for a change to happen unless other aspects of the game are to be worked on during a lesson. Players signing up for the various packages will be encouraged to allocate their sessions accordingly.
