Golf Instruction and the questions you must ask your instructor #2

OK so did your pro know the answer? Let’s hope your answer is yes and you are now hitting it straighter…and if not the answer and the video from the last article has cured your crooked shots.

Let’s get right into this when it comes to golf lessons and the questions you must ask your pro…

This next question is one the National Golf Foundation did a survey on a few years back to find out why people play the game as well as the main reason for leaving the game…so I felt it must also be a very good and important question to ask your golf instructor before you unload with a few bucks for a golf lesson(s).

My goal in this series of articles giving you basic but critically important questions you should ask before taking lessons and committing resources of time and money to is not to negatively say anything about fellow professionals…but rather to make sure you get the best instruction possible to improve your golf games…now, back to the survey.

Survey said:  The reason people play the game? And leave to game?

Same answer…hitting the ball solid or lack of solid contact.

So the question you should ask your golf instructor when about to take lessons should be:

“Can you tell me or show me what must happen to hit solid shots? And do you have specific drills to help me improve my contact?”

Seems simple right?

Well let me share a couple of responses I have received over the years and thousands of students that have come to me after not getting the results from others they were seeking…

  1. To hit solid shots, you must drive your legs into the shot!
  2. To hit solid shots you must lead with your hands! (ahhh…sorry!)
  3. You must trap the ball! (while this may be true, most people haven’t a clue what this means)
  4. And my favorite…you must move the ball round in your stance as the club changes…really? NOT!

If your guy or gal cannot describe a simple recipe of what your body is supposed to do to achieve consistent solid contact and a drill or two on how to build this new recipe without going to Hyde Park and the Culinary Institute, then it may be time to move on as you are not a crash dummy that they need or should run trial and error drills on…

So at the end of each article, as promised, all you need to do to have instant access to not only the principles or laws of physics that are easily repeatable to make solid contact,  but I will also include a drill to help you improve your direction.
