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.

Putting Drills - Are They All Good?

Many golfers want putting drills to help them improve their stroke and get the ball in the hole faster. Many golfers will hear that a friend used a golf putting drill that helped them and make the mistake that the same drill will help them too. Here are a few reasons why it does not work that way and what you should be looking for to find the best putting drills to improve your game.


Learning Styles
There are three major learning styles auditory, feel and visual. Auditory would be that the way that you best consume information is hearing it. For example, an instructor can simply tell you to do something different, you hear it and you can do it. Learning through feel you have to be able to feel the new movement before you can begin to learn it. Most golfers are visual and like to be shown something and then try to repeat it. One is not better than another, it is simply that we are build or wired differently. The putting lesson your friend may have received was for a visual learner. How…

Are You Taking Putting Lessons?

For some reason students seem reluctant to take putting lessons. I do not quite understand this as improving your putting is the fastest way to lower your scores.


I think that students do not want to take putting lessons for a couple of reasons…
Doing work on the range trying to hit the ball far and straight feels and sounds sexier and more fun than improving your putting with a putting drill. Many players like to compare themselves by how far they can hit not only the driver but also their irons. I always preferred to have the lowest score at the end of the round and collect my winnings. I figured that was impressive enough!People in general do not like to do things that they are not good at. I am guilty of this myself with my putting. Why go and get frustrated on the practice putting green when I can go to the driving range to hit good shots that I know that I can hit? Many times ego gets in the way.Another reason is one that actually does not fall on the student but the instructor.…

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…
