Beginners Golf Lesson

A beginners golf lesson usually starts out with the same question…”How will I improve the fastest?” Although my answer has always been to learn how to putt first and then learn the short game, new golfers have a hard time staying off of the driving range and pulling out the driver. I get it. Hitting the driver is the “sexy” part of golf. However, more than half of your strokes used in every single round that you ever play will be on the putting green or from close to it. Whether you are in a beginner golf class or taking private golf lessons, below is the order I would suggest that you work on your golf game to lower your scores the fastest:
  1. Putting – Golf Lesson for Beginners Believe it or not, putting practice is the fastest way to lower your scores. Yes, you read that correctly! Putting practice is the fastest way to lower your scores. If you are like most amateurs most of your practice time is spent on the driving range with your driver. Understand that you will only hit your driver 14 times a round in most cases. You can improve your golf game rapidly if make a small goal of making 5, 10 or 20 three foot putts before you play a round of golf or to end a practice session. This is a specific quantifiable goal that will make you feel the pressure of actually playing. If you do not believe me wait until you only have to make one more!
  2. Short game – Golf Lesson for Beginners For our conversation, the short game lessons will include chipping and pitching of the golf ball or any shot that is not a full swing. Most professionals and better golfers will call the short game any shot within 100 yards of the hole. If you are just starting to play it may be everything within 50 yards. Make short game practice fun by playing games with yourself or with friends. Try to get the golf ball up onto the green and down into the hole with only two shots. This is where the term up and down comes from. Select from five different spots to drop you ball and see if you can do it. As a beginner it will probably take more than two shots, so set your goal at 3 or 4 shots. Again, make it fun, but challenging.
  3. Full Swing – Golf Lesson for Beginners Many beginners like to take group lessons or golf classes to get started. There are many positives to this format: First, it is very social. Second, it is usually a less expensive way to get introduced to the game. Third, it may give you access to different instructors so you can select which one would match up better for you to take individual lessons from in the future. Fourth, many students have stated that they do not feel as much pressure in a group as they do one on one with a professional. Group lessons usually consist of the very basics of the full swing. You will also want to make sure that the group will have some putting instruction too! Just starting the game, a golf lesson for beginners should follow the above order. This will allow for the quickest improvement and you having more fun on the golf course.

3 Putting Drills To Improve Your Putting

I want to improve my putting. I want some putting drills to help me improve my short putts as well as my lag putts. My trouble is a get bored fairly easy on the putting green so any putting drills that can be incorporated into games with my buddies would be great. Here are some of the best putting drills that we often use to help our students improve their putting:

Lag Drill 
When it comes to putting for distance, we all tend to miss longer putts more short and long as opposed to right and left. This is one of my favorite putting drills. Place a tee anywhere where the putting green and fringe meet. Begin by hitting putts from varying distances from 10 to 50 feet towards the tee. The goal is to stop your golf ball as close to the fringe as possible. Challenge a friend or challenge yourself by continuing the putting drill until you can stop so many balls in side of a certain distance. This will be determined by your current skill level.

Pull Back Drill
The pull back drill is one of the g…

Can You Benefit From iPhone Golf Lessons?

Wireless Golf Coach is often asked if iPhone golf lessons are good to take. Of course, that is a loaded question for us. As with any type of instruction, you will need to find a qualified golf instructor. Once you feel that you are getting good information from one source you should be off to the races. Unfortunately, many players try to use every quick tip or instruction that they hear. Guess what…it is not all good for you! You need to have personalized online golf lessons in order to make it work.


Who is an iPhone golf lesson good for? 
The great part about learning golf on your iPhone is that it is on your terms. You can read articles, watch videos or watch a golf webinar. The format of the webinar will change from instructor to instructor. However, most of the time you can be as anonymous as you want to be. Many times you will be typing your question and the instructor will read and answer it on camera. If you are a social butterfly, you will be able to meet other golfers and sta…

Member Question - How To Control Putting Speed

Member Question: I have a hard time with hitting two putts in a row the same speed. Even on the practice green, my putting speed is horrible. I can try to hit a ball about 15 feet and try to hit a second ball to barely touch it. The second ball rarely comes close to being close to the first ball. Sometimes it is long and sometimes it is short. The result is just not consistent. Any putting tips to help me with my putting speed?


Thank you for your question. When students are that inconsistent with speed of putts or distance control, it is typically because they are not hitting the putts solid.

Now, what does that mean in English? In hitting any shot solid it means that you hit the club-face in the same spot on every stroke. If you need to know how to find the sweet spot on your putter, it is easy to do. Simply let take your putter by the grip and let it dangle using only your forefinger and thumb. Next take a golf ball and start tapping the putter face. Once the club head goes straigh…

Beginner Golf Lessons - What Are My Options?

What are my options to learn the game of golf by taking beginner golf lessons? I need to learn how to play for my job. I have been very athletic in my past but have no idea how to hit a golf ball. I would like to know the different avenues that I could take to learn the game.


Having played other sports will help you learn the game. Here are different avenues that you can take listed in what will more than likely be the quickest way to learn for you:

Private Golf Lessons
Depending on your financial situation, you may want to take private beginners golf lessons. Typically, you can take just one or you can take a series. There is usually a price break for the series. In addition, there is only so much information that you will retain from one thirty minute or one hour golf lesson. Again, you will want to do your homework and find a qualified golf instructor and that they are priced reasonably for their qualifications.

Beginner Golf Clinic
A great cost-effective way to learn how to play go…

Ladies Golf Lessons

Here is a short list of various formats that you may like to take ladies golf instruction:

Private Ladies Golf Lesson – This is what most people think of when they think of a golf lesson. Yes you have the professional to yourself but many can see that as an intimidating situation and one on one time with a qualified golf instructor is not always cheap.

Ladies Golf Classes – This is a popular way to take instruction especially for the beginners looking to learn the basics or fundamentals. As a student, you will want the instructor to student ratio to be at or below 6 to 1. Any more than that and the instructor will have a difficult time giving you any individual time at all. Again, this will go back to your goals and what you are looking to learn from the clas…
