Whether you are a pro or someone new to the great game of golf, at least once in your life you may decide to have a few lessons to improve on your technique, figure out your weaknesses and gain tips so that the game becomes more enjoyable. Golf teachers come in all skill levels as they dedicate their learning and expertise to their clients. So it is in your best interest to make the most out of your lesson so you have s great experience.
Tip #1: Don’t Arrive Late
Arriving late at the lesson is a bad way to start. Besides the fact that arriving on time (or even early) is polite and considerate of the teacher’s time, it also allows you to prepare for the lesson mentally. Instead of arriving late and stressed out, you should arrive early as you can relax yourself. Get to find out more about your instructor and what will happen at the lesson.
Tip #2: Warm Up
Your body will thank you if you stretch muscles and warm up before the lesson. By stretching and loosening up, your body will be prepared for the lesson and you will feel physically better. You will can also get in some good swings as you will be eager to get the lesson started.
Tip #3: Don’t Tell The Teacher What His Job Is
Too many people are quick to start the lesson by telling the teacher what they suspect is wrong and what they believe will fix the problem. It is the teacher’s job to evaluate your skills and see problems that you may be missing. Then using his knowledge and experience, he will tailor the lesson so you get the most benefits it. You wouldn’t go to the doctor and tell him that you think you have an ulcer all because your stomach hurts. Instead, you tell him what you are experiencing and allow the doctor to evaluate the problems to come up with the best solution. The same situation holds true for your golf lesson. Let the teacher do his job.
Tip #4: Practice
You are not going to be perfect the moment the lesson is over. Just like anything new that you learn to do for the first time, you will need to constantly practice at it until the new golf technique becomes second nature to you. And don’t become discouraged if it takes longer for you to get the swing down pat. Be committed to the lesson and you will find yourself improving at your golf game.
Just going through the motions of the golf instruction won’t perfect your swing. Get the most out of your lessons with these simple tips from Carttek. For more golf information and links visit our resources page.
