Are you planning on taking a private golf lesson? Before you do you may want to do a bit of research on a potential teaching professional.
It is always best to weigh all of your options when it comes to choosing a golf teaching professional for your lesson.
Some of the things you may want to consider are:
If you are a beginner golfer you may want to try a free monthly golf clinic to get your feet wet if there is one offered. This can help you determine whether or not you are comfortable pursuing a private golf lesson with the designated golf instructor.
Also, if you are looking for guidance on where to start as far as buying clubs and where you can find a local teaching professional, then check my Beginner Golf Tips section out.
After you have chosen a teaching professional for your private lesson you should expect several things to happen during the initial lesson.
If you are interested in the lessons that I offer then please visit Lessons in Greensboro.
Moments after you arrive you will be greeted by the teaching professional and the two of you will converse to get familiar with each other. During this time you should expect the professional to ask you about your goals for the golf lesson(s) as well as your history with the game.
A definite question you should receive would be one such as "have you had any injuries in the past?" This will give the golf professional an idea on what you can do based on your physical ability.
After the introduction the golf professional may have you do a number of things based on the information you have provided to him. Some examples could be a fitness test, warm-up/stretching, or filming your swing.
While those are common options the golf professional may choose, don't be surprised if you do a combination of all three throughout the lesson. If the two of you are working on a current fault then expect most of the lesson to be focused on the cause of the fault and receiving feedback on how to correct it.
Once the main portion of the lesson has been completed, the professional will close the lesson with a wrap up. This wrap up should touch base on the main points that were covered in the lesson. He should then proceed to give you an assignment to complete on your own until your next appointed lesson.
Once you have completed your lesson be sure to go over what was said and be sure to work on the assignment that was given until your next lesson if you have one. It is best to be realistic and realize that improvement may not occur instantaneously but if gradual improvement was made in the lesson, hard work during your own time will begin to mold your swing into a strong and effective one.
I hope this information will help you to decide whether or not you are ready for a golf lesson. If you feel you are ready then what are you waiting for? Give it a shot!
