What Can I Learn From A Golf Instructor?
January 27, 2020

Whether you intend to go pro one day or simply want to play for fun, it’s never a bad idea to consider golf lessons. Here are some reasons why should.

  1. You’re new to the game of golf. As with playing any sport, there are good habits and bad habits. When you’re new to a sport, however, it can be difficult to tell the difference between good and bad. Lessons can help you determine whether you’re holding the club the correct way, if you’re standing incorrectly, etc. The lessons you’ll learn during this time will help build the foundation of a great player, so why not take them?
  2. It’s been a while since you’ve practiced. Due to the seasons and the weather conditions of each, there’s a big chance you don’t play all year long, which means you can go months at a time without practice. Muscle memory can help you navigate through a game, but it doesn’t mean the game will be as awesome as it could be. Doing something on a regular basis, repeating motions over and over often, all help you build an instinct or intuition – the more you do it, the more natural it comes to you. As soon as you take a break from it, this instinct fades away. Taking lessons during off seasons can help you maintain your ability to not only play the game but to also play it well.
  3. It provides a second opinion about your playing gear. You may be a player who is constantly switching out equipment for whatever is popular or new at the time, or you may be a player who never purchases new equipment and sticks with the same old, same old. If you’re using the same equipment from 10 years ago, though, it doesn’t hurt to get a second opinion on it from the person teaching your lessons. Who knows, they may have a suggestion on a certain type of equipment that can help improve your game.
  4. Your games are becoming worse over time. Sometimes it happens – no matter how much you play, the game just becomes worse over time. Add injuries to this equation, and your chances of playing better are decreased even more. By taking lessons, you’ll be able to determine what changed in your game and how to fix it.

Your game stays the same. There are many amateur athletes who hit a certain point in their playing skills, thus causing the game to no longer improve with time. Lessons can help you correct any flaws that occur over time, from swing mistakes to short game errors. All of these corrections can go a long way in improving your game without taking up too much of your time We offer golf lessons at The 19th Green.
