Golf lessons are a must for beginners and intermediate players although it must be said that even professionals will require instruction, too. Think of it this way: Beginners and intermediate players require golf instruction to learn the basics of the game including proper form and function as well as to develop their playing skills. Professionals still require golf instruction because the game demands lifelong learning from its players, not to mention that falling into complacency about your game can spell losing the match.

Choosing the Instructors

  • The first step in becoming engaged in golf instruction is to choose the right golf instructor. Keep in mind that proficiency in teaching golf requires two major aspects, name.
  • Technical, physical and practical abilities to actually play the game, which explains the popularity of the golf lessons provided by past champions of the game; and
  • In-depth knowledge of the rules and regulations as well as the etiquette of the game.
  • You should then choose from among golf instructors with these abilities and then select the golf instructor whom you can learn with. Keep in mind that personal interaction is as important as professional competency when it comes to golf instruction.
  • Tip: Look at the list of golf instructors with certifications as PGA Class A Professionals. These instructors use physical conditioning, classroom sessions, mental visualization, and on-course play under tournament conditions as well as driving range instruction and review of videotaped sessions, among others. The bottom line: You get what you pay for.

As previously mentioned, even professional golfers still require their golf mentors. Jack Nicklaus, for example, is closely associated with Jack Grout while Tiger Woods has been associated with Butch Harmon before he switched to other well-known instructors.

Setting Expectations

  1. Not all golf lessons are created equal, so to speak. You must then set realistic expectations from yourself and from your golf instructor such that you will be engaged in an active partnership to improve your game. Keep in mind that your golf instructor can only impart his knowledge as best as he possibly can but it is your responsibility to learn as much as you can, too.
  2. As a beginner, you will receive a series of lessons on the basics of the game including the proper form when swinging, the selection of the appropriate club, and the proper behavior on and off the field as a golfer. Your lessons can be given either in an individual or a group setting.
  3. As a recreational golfer, you may want to return for further instruction usually to remedy a flaw in your game. For example, you are having problems with your pitching or chipping or putting so specific golf lessons are on the agenda.
  4. It is best to set mutual expectations before the golf instruction begins. At the very least, you will get your money’s worth and your golf instructor will be rewarded via a good student whose game improved after his lessons.

Here are a few tips to maximize your lessons, too:

• Have a plan with your instructor – what to achieve, where to start, and how to achieve

• Cover all your bases in terms of addressing your strengths and weaknesses in the game instead of focusing on just one aspect

• Do mirror work. This way, you can check whether your form is, indeed, proper and then you can make changes when necessary.

• Discuss your game with your instructor. The more knowledgeable you are about your performance, the better you can improve on your game.

Indeed, golf lessons will go a long way toward improving your game but you must work hard, too.
