So often when I am introduced to someone as a PGA Teaching Professional, the introduction of the other person will be followed with a “…but he’s/she’s a good player. He/she doesn’t need golf lessons!” Of course, I always smile and say nothing about it. However, I want you to remember that even the top PGA Tour players in the world have their own golf coaches. One of the keys to a good golf coach or golf instructor is to know their student’s swings, when they are swinging well. That way, when the inevitable happens and the student’s swing gets off track, it is much easier to get them playing well again. It doesn’t take a daily lesson to become a better golfer. But a well informed PGA Golf Coach or Teaching Professional can make all the difference in your golf game.
As he did so many things, Harvey Penick said it best, “Lessons are not to take the place of practice but to make practice worthwhile.”
