For those that didn't read the other thread, I made it to the Tour Champions (Senior Tour) Q school finals to be held the week after Thanksgiving in Orlando.



I'll be posting stuff all week on Twitter



...so follow me there.



During my two practice rounds I will post on Instagram many of the shots I am hitting. If you have a request on a shot you'd like explained and see me hit, post it here in this thread. Here is my Instagram. Haven't done much there, but plan to do more.



https://www.instagram.com/MonteScheinblum



It's also time to start making the clinic schedule for next year. Even if I get fully exempt status, I don't turn 50 until May...and I just plain enjoy doing them, so I still plan on doing several, regardless of where my playing career goes.



It's going to work the same as last year. As soon as I get 8 deposits for a city, I will schedule a date and venue.



Here are places I have done before. Orlando, Phoenix, San Jose, Seattle, Sioux Falls, Baltimore/DC, Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Kansas City, Boston, New Jersey, Syracuse, Atlanta, Columbus, Scotland, and London.



I have had requests in the past, but didn't get enough interest for Vegas, Palm Springs, Detroit, Melbourne, Minneapolis, South Carolina, Canada and Louisiana., I will take deposits on these venues as well. As soon as I get 8, it's a go and I cap attendees at 15.



If you want into one of the schools (all 10 I did last year filled up), send a $200 deposit to my PayPal account. Please say for what venue in the notes. If there is a second choice, please add that too. ALL DEPOSITS ARE REFUNDABLE if your city doesn't happen, you have an emergency and can't come, or final date doesn't work for you.



I just need to know which cities have the most real interest.



PayPal account is my email.



[email protected]



For those that haven't been before, Saturday and Sunday are group and one on one discussion and I discuss all facets of the game. Swing, short game, putting, shot making, practice routines, mental approach, etc...those that have attended will say it's comprehensive and they got plenty of individual attention.



Monday is the on course instruction and it's almost unanimous that this is the best day.



I bring my Flightscope and Boditrak and the pertinent data from those devices are part of the learning process as well. Everyone loves the Boditrak. I also might have the MySwing 3D at a few of them.



I'd appreciate all those interested signing up now. As you can imagine, my schedule will be pretty hectic next year and I'd like as little Kaos as possible. In a perfect world, I'd love to have Orlando, Vegas, Phoenix, San Jose and Palm Springs locked up before I leave for Q-school. :-)



People have gotten groups of 4-5 together themselves and I did those around the bigger schools...so feel free to request that.



Again, please use this thread for Instagram video requests, or any other questions you might have for me.

    For the ones that I've been to with Monte it generally followed this schedule (sometimes it changed based on weather, venue, etc)



    Day 1 is group analysis of each person's swing to find main 1 or 2 faults that cause the rest of the issues in your swing, followed by individual work with Monte on those swing faults. Each person gets plenty of 1 on 1 time. Day 1 usually includes short game/sand work as well.



    Day 2 is more individual work, honing in on solutions for your swing faults. The afternoon is usually an exhibition by Monte, hitting different shots, explaining how to work the ball easily, trajectory, and pounding some drivers.



    Day 3 is the playing lesson where monte plays a few holes with each group, working on people'a swing a bit on course with real world pressure, showing specialty short game shots, course management. It's laid back and nobody grinds for score. It's about bringing the changes to the course.





    Each day, sprinkle in a healthy dose of joking around, stories about tour players and teachers, Monte'a LD and Tour experience, and joking around with other clinic participants.

    I think chicago was April 30 weekend. They like to have it early so people can practice during the season. Unfortunately rain sometimes intervenes. But they managed to move it indoors seamlessly last year for the one day it rained. Monte pretty amazing at spotting problems and offering fixes.

    I highly recommend the clinics to anyone...I've never been a big clinic fan before but Monte does a great job. I had my best ball striking round by far a couple months after the clinic by working on what he suggested. I'm in for Phoenix, I will be sending my deposit later this week but I'm 100% in unless I start shooting 65's between now and clinic time lol.



    Monte, congrats on the qualifier, you truly deserve any success that comes your way and I wish you the absolute best going forward. If you make it, I personally think you should try to get a sponsorship from like Suave or Redken

    It's $450 plus fee for using the facility/green fee, etc., which is usually around &150.

    It's 9-4 Saturday and Sunday with 18 holes Monday. Quite literally every way you can improve your golf game is discussed. There is plenty of one on one time.

    Going to add on a little more to Chris's comments, specifically to higher handicaps like me.



    If you are a higher handicap, do NOT be afraid or embarrassed about attending. I found parts of my game were actually as good or better than others in attendance. And, IMO, one of the things higher handicaps like me NEED is to put themselves in higher pressure situations. Your worst faults can be magnified and more easily identified, but so can your best traits! Inevitably, in every group I've been a part of, at least one low-capper comes down with the <ahem> "laterals" for at least a half-day of the clinic, and no one was laughing at or judging them. No one's judging higher caps at Monte's clinics, either.

    Monte, I know you are local (as am I), but I think I would really enjoy the 2-day clinic setting, rather than multiple individual lessons. Thanks,

    I appreciate the thought, but here is the deal. I'm an instructor and if the forum can learn something from my experience, I want to do it.



    Plus, it's therapeutic for me.

    It seems every year there's one or two folks from Detroit area who make it over to the Chicago clinic. Plus the group is a lot of fun to be around, or so I'm told!



    Hope you can make it. Definitely worth the while.

    Someone had a good idea for last year's outing in Chicago area... For those folks who live in the area, and some of you may or may not be able to attend the actual 3 day clinic, if anyone's up for a round the day PRIOR to Monte's outing,(that would be a Friday) maybe we could get together and have a pre-clinic outing. We could exchange pleasantries and maybe a few C-notes - andrew jacksons - George Washingtons. I'm not suggesting the Man himself will joining, more likely than not he won't, but might be fun to get out and have our own game amongst ourselves and really get our games in dire straits so the bad habits are firmly in grained prior to the clinic.



    Keep it in mind just in case we are able to make Chicago work. Again non-clinic attendees in the area welcomed to play.



    And yes we will have the Sunday evening BBQ portion of the event again, and this also open to Non- attendees as well - if Chicago makes the cut.

    Easiest way is to just sign up and can always get a refund if dates setup don't work for you.



    I'm sure you understand I can't go to the trouble to setup a date and facility and only 5 people end up with actual interest.



    Once it gets to 8 signups, it gets to 14-15 no problem by the time it happens and even if 2-4 people have other commitments or injuries, I still have 10-12.
