Anyone starting out as a golfer will probably scour the Internet for golf lessons online. The information super highway is awash with free information and it can seem as if there is a golf guru around every corner but is it as easy as that? The short answer is no.
Free information whilst having the benefit of being free is usually a sales pitch of one kind or another and so the information given is naturally going to lead you by the nose to a conclusion that suits the seller rather than you the golfer. I would point out that there are some genuine people out there who will provide tips and advice for nothing but the caution here is “Do they really know what they are talking about?”
If you are serious about learning about golf then I would recommend purchasing a course of instruction and following it through thoroughly. The important word here is thoroughly. I have had so many people say “I bought such and such book and it didn’t work for me.” When I question them more closely it usually turns out that, yes they bought the book, course DVD etc and watched or read it once, tried a couple of things and when it didn’t work straightaway they dismissed it out of hand.
Let’s be clear, there is no magic golf book, no golf guru or golf lesson that will transform you into a scratch player overnight. Tiger Woods still has a coach. The worlds foremost golfer still takes instruction. Why do you imagine that a few tips from the Internet will cure your slice, improve your putting or give you the longest drive in the world?
Any golf lesson online or from your golf pro will only, can only provide a framework on which to build.You have to meet it halfway which means you have to take the course or book and use it, practise it and keep practising it.
A quality golf course bought online will provide you with the information you need in a clear and most importantly consistent manner so that one aspect of the golf game follows another in a logical sequence. Golf professionals do not jump from one trainer to another and neither should you.
It really is worth finding a good golf lesson program and then practising what they teach you. If you can find a golf lesson series or course that suits the way you want to learn, and everybody is different then it can make a wonderful improvement to your enjoyment and your skill which is after all why we play the game ,isn’t it?
