FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Can I purchase online lessons at any time?
Q: How long does it take for you to respond?
A: Analysis for online lessons are usually completed on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday depending on the travel schedule. Response time is typically 2-3 previously scheduled days for online sessions. (Example: Purchase your lesson on a Monday, a typical response would come on Thursday or Saturday)
Q: Can I upload videos at any time?
A: Yes, once your CoachNow page is active, you may upload videos there. E-mailed videos will not be accepted.
Do I need to schedule a time?
A: Because the Single and 3 Session packages are video uploads, Preston will respond with a complete voiceover analysis for you. You do not need to schedule a time.
Q: Can I book a single live session with you like a Zoom or FaceTime?
A: Live sessions are reserved for 6 Month Members of Preston's Putting Online. 6 Month Members receive 3 Zoom Sessions during each 6 Month Membership.
Q: If my putter is a problem, is that included with a session? How does a virtual fitting work?
A: Yes, we can help with putter selection and fitting. There are some essential parameters to get correct, most notably the right length which is predicated on body type and setup needs.
Q: What kind of support is available after the initial session and follow up? If I need more hands on support, what's the best option for me?
A: Players are always welcome to purchase additional Single Sessions or 3 Session packages. There is no expiration and can be used as the player and coach see fit. If you would like live access, consider the 6 Month Membership.
Q: What if something comes up during my 6 Month Membership? Can I pause or take a break?
A: Yes, we understand that life happens and are very accommodating. We just ask for 2 weeks notice as a courtesy if you do need to stop for a month. Common occurrences are family related and especially those who live in winter climates with limited indoor access.
Q: Are the videos and CoachNow platform compatible with all technology systems?
A: Yes. CoachNow can be download as a mobile app or accessed on the computer at www.coachnow.io
Q: Do I need any special equipment for the drills in the practice plan?
A: If you do need any training aids, they will all be available through my website. Providing the tools for success is important.
Q: What does a typical practice plan look like?
A: The practice plan will directly relate to The Putting Priorities of Read, Speed, and Direction. This will include exercises to build the skills and competitive work to keep players sharp.
Q: What's the time commitment to best improve my putting?
A: The question of the amount of time comes up often. Player should plan on very focused and moderate length sessions rather than trying to work for 3 consecutive hours once per week.
Q: Do the virtual lessons include tips for improving the mental aspect of putting? For example, I get psyched out on short putts often.
A: Having played competitive golf, Preston can share his experiences as well as stories from other players to help navigate that scene. He has also teamed up with a top performance expert, Paul Dewland, for players on an as needed basis.
Q: Can I give the lesson packages as a gift to family members?
A: Yes, just purchase through the online store as if you were purchasing for yourself and contact Preston via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to notify him of the gift usage. Gift cards will be available in Summer 2021.
