Many amateur golfers spend lots of money buying new golf equipment and no money on golf lessons. They have the impression that the new equipment will improve their golf and take their game to a whole new level. This is one of the reasons why amateurs never seem to get better. Here is why you should invest in golf lessons.
New golf equipment is very nice to have and the improvements in technology do help you to play better, but only to a certain extent.
The clubs are only the tool golfers use to play golf. The method or skill behind using the clubs effectively are entirely dependent on the golfer’s ability.
So why is it that many golfers buy new clubs rather than invest in golf lessons? I’ll tell you why. It all comes down to image. If you are seen with the latest and best golf clubs, most people assume you to be quite a good player because you look the part. That is until you swing the club. Then the truth comes out and you turn out not to be as good as you appeared to be.
This is a problem. Firstly you want to impress your mates and will only do so by playing better. Secondly you want to get the most out of your new clubs. I’m not saying don’t buy new golf clubs. Of course you must try have the best equipment available. All I am saying is that you should consider taking some lessons to get the maximum benefit and satisfaction from your clubs.
There are many different lessons you can have. They range from personal one-on-one lessons with a recognised teaching PGA Pro, or buying books and DVDs that explain graphically how to play better golf.
PGA Pro’s are wonderful coaches to have as they are excellent players and have a lot of talent and will help you to correct your swing to play better. The only problem is that they cost a lot of money to hire and are not always available when you need them.
Instructional books and DVDs are the next best thing to have. The benefits of having them are as follows. You buy them once off, they don’t cost a fortune, they provide great step-by-step instruction and are available for you to refer to whenever you need them. There are many excellent golf instructional DVDs and e-books on the market today that can potentially teach you a lot more about the game of golf than any PGA Pro could and these books and DVDs cover a wide range of topics to do with golf improvement.
So here is a a tip for all amateur golfers who wish to improve their game the cost effective way. Buy golf instructional DVDs, e-books and training aids and after watching or reading them practice what they teach at a driving range. Then if you still struggle with a particular aspect of your game, go visit you local PGA Pro for additional help.
