Almost everyone that plays golf seriously has had a golf lesson or two and those that play competitively, especially junior golfers, likely have trusted coaches that they see on a regular basis. Many players view their time with their coach as critical to their development and success, but still might not understand how to make the best use of this valuable time.
As a coach, I feel an obligation to be prepared for each lesson. That means I review notes from previous lessons, check student stats, and refer to other information to make sure I have a well-thought-out plan. I still solicit input from each student and am ready for the unexpected. If my students are equally prepared, we’re almost guaranteed to have a great session.
Here’s a good framework to help both younger and older golfers get the most from their next golf lesson.
A few days ago, my cousin and I talked about encouraging my uncle to spend time outdoors, so we'd like to suggest he gets golfing classes this month. We're glad you talked about being engaged with your golf lessons to make the most out of them, so I'll share this with my uncle as soon as we get him on board. Thank you for the advice on asking questions in a respectful matter when learning golf.
