The Accuracy Plan by Adam Young is a great online learning program for golfers interested in improving their swing.
Regular readers of Plugged In Golf are surely familiar with Adam Young by now. Whether you’ve heard him on the podcast (HERE), or read our reviews of The Practice Manual (HERE) or The Strike Plan (HERE), you know that his approach to golf instruction is miles from the status quo. With The Accuracy Plan, he turns his unique style to the task of getting your shots to end up in the fairway and on the greens.
Lesson Content & Presentation
The Accuracy Plan is an online learning program with over four hours of video content. The content is broken up into six modules. Adam’s videos vary in length – many are in the 5-7 minute range, others stretch out to 15 minutes or more.
If you’re like me, you will be tempted to skip past some of the early material or fast forward to the drills. Don’t. Adam has put a lot of thought into the structure of this program, and you’ll get far more out of it if you go through step by step. And take your time. There’s no virtue in plowing this this in one sitting.
To me, the most valuable piece of The Accuracy Plan is Adam’s system for measuring accuracy. Like many of the best innovations, it’s painfully simple and wonderfully effective. It’s also the cure to what keeps most golfers from improving: the lack of measurables in their practice. With Adam’s system, you’ll have a way to check the accuracy of each shot, on the range and the course, and you can use that information to truly improve your game.
Another thing that I really like about Adam’s work is the way he defines his terms. So much golf instruction is loaded with confusing jargon. Adam sticks to a handful of comprehensible terms that he defines clearly beforehand. The value of this cannot be overstated.
The drills in The Accuracy Plan are miles from ordinary and extremely effective. I could spend paragraphs writing about each one, they’re that good. I particularly like the pressure of the 2 Ball Game and the skill development of Face Variability Training.
Finally, The Accuracy Plan does a great job spending time on an oft-overlooked question: “What should you fix?” So much golf instruction dives right into tearing apart your swing. The Accuracy Plan gives you the tools to carefully assess what your issues are and what routes you can take to fixing them.
Lifetime access to The Accuracy Plan costs just $59.95 (buy it HERE). That’s less than the cost of a lesson, and you’ll learn far more from The Accuracy Plan than you possibly could in one hour with a pro.
The lifetime access piece can’t be overstressed. Just as with The Strike Plan, I find myself going back to The Accuracy Plan on a regular basis to pick up drills that I may have overlooked or re-emphasize different things.
If you play golf with even a moderate level of seriousness, The Accuracy Plan is a must-have. Adam’s accuracy measurement system alone is worth the price of admission. This is a program that you can come back to year after year and always get something new because it’s so packed with drills and information.
