A root cause is an initiating cause of either a condition or a casual chain that leads to an outcome or effect of interest. Commonly, root cause is used to describe the depth in the casual chain where an intervention could reasonably be implemented to improve performance of prevent an undesirable outcome.
Finding your “Root Cause” is a mission Nick takes teaching every one of his pupils. The root cause is ultimately responsible for many of your faults and can prevent improvements to your golf swing. This leaves almost every golfer frustrated and confused. Nick specializes in coaching and training of the golf swing to develop what is technically needed to improve. The root cause is what ultimately needs to be addressed first. He works diligently showing you how to understand and control it. Nick then educates you how you can elevate other elements which had suffered because of it. Being more aware improves your ability and leads to self-correction.
In plain English a “root cause” is a “cause” (harmful factor) that is “root” (deep, basic, fundamental, underlying, initial or the like).
A good teacher is someone who doesn’t lie down but seeks out knowledge in their chosen profession. Nick does this so he can bring it back to his students. He makes it his priority to converse with leading figures within the PGA, all around the world to gain the information needed to better improve his himself as a teacher and therefore the ability of his student’s.
It is known that everyone learns and receives information differently. Nick takes pride in being knowledgeable on all areas of education involved in the golf swing. Nick takes the simple to complex concepts and interprets it to every student he teaches in an understandable way. Relating to who you are teaching is a deciding factor in every lesson.
