Practice And Instruction

VISION54 Golf Coaching

At VISION54 we have one main intention – to support golfers to play better ON the course and ENJOY the game more.

Talking Stick Golf Club is the home base for the world-renowned VISION54 Golf Coaching program co-founded and performed by coaches Lynn Marriott and Pia Nilsson. VISION54 is much more than swing coaching. At VISION54 you learn the skills you need to PLAY better ON the golf course. Isn’t that what all golfers want? Practice sessions incorporate the latest research on practice and transferring the skills to the golf course.

VISION54 targets the whole person, not just the technical aspect of the game.

We look at the reality of golf and what elements influence your performance. The elements are physical, technical, mental, emotional, social and spirit of the game. To make this come alive we created the 8 Essential Play Skills golfers need to complement their technique – Play Box, Decision & Commitment, Balance, Tempo, Tension Awareness, Emotional Resilience, Memory Storage, and Managing Self-Talk.

We believe that you have a unique strategy for playing great golf and we want you to take great care in discovering what works best for you, MY54. By doing this, you will gain clarity about your unique strategy for playing great golf, and therefore will achieve it more often.
