Pia Nilsson (pictured on right), best known as Annika Sorenstam's coach, believes in the complete-game teaching approach. She and fellow teacher Lynn Marriott operate the Vision 54 golf schools -- named for the score you would have if you birdied every hole. Nilsson and Marriott start with the idea that every player has "unlimited" potential. Ranked 19th on Golf Digest's 50 Best Teachers in America, Nilsson was awarded the King of Sweden's Medal of the 8th Dimension for her leadership in sports in 1998.
My Best Tip Ever
We often say golfers have gotten "line drunk." They focus too much on finding the line and not enough on finding a feel for distance. Putt with your eyes closed, or wearing a blidfold, and estimate where the ball stops. You'll quickly build trust in your stroke and a better awareness of the target. Placing a glove in the cup limits auditory feedback and helps you rely even more on feel.
