Ask yourself what you want to improve upon this winter.

Longer drives?
Better iron play?
Better wedge play?
Better putting?

The winter is the best time to make any big improvements without the concern of having to play golf.  Sam and Tim will a create program that will address the areas you want to improve in and set forth a plan which will include how many days a week you will need to practice, as well as drills you can do at home or at an indoor facility. This will allow you to achieve your goals in a timely manner.

First thing to do now is to contact Sam or Tim and they can consult with you on a plan.
