Good afternoon from Classic Swing Golf School in Myrtle Beach! Why take lessons?
Here are a few good reasons:
The Advantages of Taking Golf Lessons
The majority of newcomers and ‘improvers’ to the game of golf probably toy with the idea of taking lessons from a professional.
The most important things a golfer wishes to learn are correct posture, grip, alignment and the golf swing itself. These are essential to every shot played in golf.
Every person who plays golf wants to shoot a low score, but they often find themselves with a handicap that hovers in a certain range for a long period of time.
It is rare that someone drastically improves his or her game just by playing more often. Practicing at a driving range may help, but you are caught in the quandary of having to self-asses what you are doing right and wrong.
When many golfers decide to take the game seriously, they should seek out professional instructors for private golf lessons.Golf instructors teach multiple types of standard shots, including driving, fairway shots, approaches, chipping, putting, and sand-shots.
Advanced instruction can teach techniques such as controlling the “shape” of the shot, controlling loft, ball-stopping and spinning, playing off uneven ground or sidehill lies, and trouble shots such as hitting out of the woods.
Consistent practice sessions are essential to the improvement of the beginner golfer. BUT, players need to have a full understanding of WHAT they are trying to do and HOW to practice. Beating golf balls aimslessly does NO good and ONLY ingrains poor habits.
Instructors may use a combination of physical conditioning, mental visualization, classroom sessions, club fitting, driving range instruction, on-course play under real conditions, and review of videotaped swings in slow motion to teach golf.
