Golf Clinic

Many players will attend a golf clinic when they are first learning how to play the game. Once it is over, they think that they have checked that box and there is no need to return. This is simply not true. The golf profession has become hung up on creating new golfers and, honestly, we are pretty good at it. The challenge becomes that once someone is introduced to the game, what do they do and where do they go from there?
There are many types of clinics available to all skill levels of golfers. Just because you have attended a clinic does not mean that you still cannot get good information on a second go around. Below are just few examples of these types of golf classes:

Online Golf Clinic – This may come in the form of a golf webinar. This format will vary depending on the instructor but it still can hold many benefits for you. Many golfers are too embarrassed to attend “live” lessons, as they are afraid that they will look silly. By learning through an online format, you may type your question in to the chat log and nobody will ever know who you are! You can still get great information and many times it is recorded so you can watch at your convenience wherever you are or as many times as you want.

Ladies Golf Clinic – If you are new to a city or new to a club, this can be a great way for you to get involved and meet other ladies that are looking to play or learn to play golf. This format is done a multitude of different ways depending on the size of the group golf lesson. Typically, the instructor will give a short presentation at the beginning of the session and then allow the group to spread out to work on the information while they come around and offer individual advice.

Junior Golf Clinic – This format of junior golf lessons is a popular summertime event for many youth and is how many kids are introduced to the game. Depending on the age of your child, you will need to ask a few questions such as 1. How are the skill levels broken up? Is it strictly by age or is it done on skill level? 2. What is the student/teacher ratio? 3. Does my child want to attend? This last question seems to be the one that rarely gets asked by the parents. You know how your kids are if they do not want to be somewhere.

Short Game Clinic – This format is another that you can take time and time again and just keep learning as you can always stand to improve your short game. Again, the format will vary, but many will provide you with a new wedge as it will be included in the price. You should be able to be properly fitted for a new wedge during the clinic or they will give you recommendations for what type of wedge and bounce will work best for you. If you do not know what bounce is, then you need to attend a short game school and you will see your scores improve.

Beginner Golf Clinic – Again, if you have already been through a beginner golf lesson, you may want to ask some questions of the staff. Will it be the exact same format? If it is, that is ok because it is doubtful that you received and retained everything that was put in front of you the first time around. Ask them what you could get out of it by attending a second time. If they cannot answer that then I would move on to another instructor.

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

No matter whether you are a beginner or have been playing the game for years, there is a variety of ladies golf lessons that will help you understand the game, get to meet and socialize with others and have more fun while you play! 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…
