Many golf students who begin to play golf think that the learning that should take place depends on the instructor. But being in a team activity, the student also has some responsibilities.
Here are four ways to get the most out of your golf lessons:
1 – Even if you are a new golfer, it is your responsibility to do your research to find a good golf teacher. You would be surprised how many teachers are not qualified to actually teach the golf swing.
2 – You should find a PGA member. The PGA of America has its potential members pass various tests on teaching the golf swing before they are granted membership. You can also take golf club memberships to get more benefits. Click here to learn more about golf club memberships.
3 – Don't be afraid to ask them before scheduling a lesson what their theories are about teaching golf and how they came to that conclusion. Your challenge is to help you understand and if you don't already, then don't feel uncomfortable looking for another instructor.
4 – Many students are also late for their lessons. This means that they have to take time out of the lesson to warm up and they have already lost another time. Being prepared when the lesson begins is a responsibility you must take on in order to get the most out of your golf instruction.
When you sign up for a lesson, you are buying an instructor's time. Depending on how busy they are that day, you may not be able to make up for the lag time. Plus, being on time allows you to slow down, warm up, and go over what you want to work on in this session.
