Golf Instruction – Questions You Must Ask Your Instructor

Golf Lessons and knowing the facts on what it really takes to improve can be extremely beneficial.

In our society when we go to a restaurant or a new show at the movie theater we do what?  Research and find out if the service was fair poor or excellent…along with the food being top notch and a great value right?

Yet when we go to take a golf lesson from our local club professional or someone who is rated in the top 100 our research is limited to what we’ve heard from others much of the time.

My point being it made me think as a Professional Teacher of the Game…what questions should the person going to get instruction ask before they commit to fork over anywhere from 50-300 bucks and hour in hopes to improving their golf games?

So the first question, if I were you, is I would ask this male or female teaching professional:

“What must happen to make the ball go straight? “or “Hey what makes the ball go straight?”

Now if this person begins to give you all sorts of vague and mysterious answers that require smoke and mirrors you should become concerned and think twice about spending any additional time or money.

Some knockout responses might sound or look like this:

  1. It all has to do with your alignment…
  2. It means you must keep your left arm straight, or right arm for lefties…
  3. And my favorite…you must keep your head down…

There are a host of answers I have heard over the years that my students have told me that like the ones above are so wrong and so far off base that it has driven me to write this series of articles about the questions you must ask your golf instructor…before paying for game improvement.

By the way it’s probably important to know the answer before you go so that you’ll know if this person is able to teach you how to hit it straight…or experiment on you like Dr. Frankenstein…

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

In the next insertion we will discuss the #1 reason people stay in or leave the game and the questions you must ask your golf instructor…before you sign on for lesson.

    Hi Jeff, Really enjoy your instructional videos, but can not open this link. I am disappointed! Took some of your lessons at 1st Tee last year and hope you are offering them again this Feb. and Mar. Can’t wait to leave the rain in Portland.
