I tell any and everyone that has never played golf, or is just beginning to play, to take lessons. I really can’t stress this enough. Taking the time to educate yourself by learning the basics, and applying the basics of the golf swing will serve you for the rest of your golf-playing life. It will also set you apart from 90% or more of the people that I personally know that play golf. It takes so much more effort to unlearn old bad habits and replace them with proper technique.
In these pages, I will bring you the latest ant the best in golf instruction from the golfing world. I have to say that I’ve gotten at least some positive effects from nearly every gadget or product I’ve ever tried. I don’t pretend that these replace one-on-one work with a pro- but you can improve your game to some degree.
Over my 23 years of playing golf, I’ve tried just about every form of instruction offered. Now, I’m not saying I’ve consistently tried different advice, instructors, or products over the years. It’s been fairly well spread out, but I have done a little bit of shiny object chasing. I’ve only gone to three instructors, and only 2 of those were more than two lessons, with about 15 years between those. There are a lot golf instruction videos that have been of value and have helped my scoring- which is the only criteria that should be used to judge them. Some of those are still relevant, but I’ll be on the look out for the newer stuff.
So bookmark this page and come back often. It only gets better from here.
