Golf seems as though it would be a simple game at first glance. After all, all you have to do is hit a stationary ball in the direction you want to go. As anyone who places golf knows, the game is far more difficult than that. The devil is in the details as the old cliche’ goes and getting advice on your game continually can make a huge difference in how you ultimately play.
The idea of taking golf lessons for a beginner makes absolute sense. Building a good base to work off of is critical to developing a game you will love playing. Just getting out and hacking away will lead to miserable scores, a ton of frustration and eventually probably leaving the game with the cliched idea that golf is just a good walk spoiled. Getting lessons as a beginner just makes sense in so many ways.
What about lessons once you develop your game? Many golfers will be resistant to this. I am not sure why. Golf is about moving your game up levels time and again until you get really good. To do this, you need help along the way. The problem for most golfers is they become incredibly frustrated because their game plateaus and they don’t make any progress. This is where a golf lesson can make a huge difference. Spending a few sessions with a golf pro can straighten out your game and move you to the next level.
Think you are too good for lessons? Well, maybe you should take the time to consider something. Tiger? Woods has a golf coach. Phil Mickleson has a golf coach. Name a famous golfer and they also have a coach. Why? The answer is simple ? golfers know they continually need objective advice on their games. Don’t you think the same would apply to you? Trust me, it does.
If you are serious about golf, you know that your game can always improve. Doing a couple sessions with a golf pro each year is one way to make that happen.
