Golf Tips For Beginners- Don't Waste Money On Expensive Private Lessons

Apr 18, 2008
There are a number of ways to improve your golf handicap. Probably the one that everyone would like to do is to hire a professional instructor to analyze your swing out at the driving range and give you pointers and suggestions to help you improve your game. While this is a great idea, and who wouldn't love a professional instructor help them with their game, it's just not in the cards for the average weekend duffer.

These private lessons often cost hundreds of dollars and often produce little results. How much are you really going to remember 3 months from now from a single golf lesson? Sure you might remember a pointer or two, but for the most part unless you take many lessons over a course of a few months, you really will not see any improvement in your game going this route. Plus you will be out a couple hundred bucks that you could have put towards paying for green fees or even a new club or two.

Golf is an expensive sport to be good at. When you take into account the price of a decent set of clubs, balls, green fees, shoes, gloves, etc. you are looking at potentially thousands of dollars every few years if you want to keep up on the latest technology.

Most golfers can't afford private lessons on top of these other expenses. Don't get me wrong, private lessons are great if you can afford multiple lessons sustained over a period of time. If you can't then you need to look for inexpensive alternatives to private lessons, for instance a book or an instructional DVD series. I personally feel like you will get way more out of these methods, because you can practice these tips in your backyard, at the range, or wherever on your own time. And you can keep going back and referring to these tips.

All you need to do is read something, or watch something and then go and focus on that one area of your game until you see improvement. When you feel like you have finally seen some improvement, move onto the next chapter or video. This way you can break your game down into sections, working on each one before you move onto the next. If you have a single private lesson or two and he tells you 15 different aspect of your game to work on, will you really remember that?

So the bottom line is, don't waist time and money on private lessons unless you can afford to take multiple lessons. If you can't, get a good book or DVD series and work on your game in compartments. Over time you should see drastic improvement in each area of your game.
