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.

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…
