Online Golf Swing Lessons

In recent years, online golf lessons have grown in popularity, for the simple reason that they address the problem of finding time away from the course to actually take golf lessons. What are the pros and cons from taking online golf lessons? Glad you asked as we have outlined a few here for you:

Pros to taking online golf lessons –
  • Time – There is no need try and track down the Pro and find time in your schedule that matches with his or her schedule. If you take instructions form a busy professional, you may not be able to book a lesson for a week or more. What do you do in the mean time?
  • Cost – This kind of comes with a warning…sometimes you get what you pay for. If you are just beginning to learn how to play the game and you are short on funds then this can be a great option for you. With this being said make sure to read the cons section on this one as well and we will get you on the right track!
  • Access – Due to the advances in technology, golf online lessons may give you access to instructors or teachers that you would not have had access to just a few years ago. You no longer need to be directly with your instructor to receive great instruction. Many players will use video to record their swing and then email it to their instructor. The instructor can watch the swings, voice over what they see and simply email it back to the student. In addition, some instructors are now using Skype and/or Google+ to interact face to face with a student or a group of students.
Cons to taking online golf lessons –
  • Amount of information – There is already a sea of golf instruction online and it is left up to you to decide which information is good information and bad information. If you are a beginner, this can easily be overwhelming. Some websites brag about how many golf instruction articles or videos that they have on their site and then turn you loose to figure out which one will work for yourself. They might as well just say “Good Luck!�?
  • Source of the information – With all of the golf information on the web, I would highly encourage you to stick with reputable instructors. If you are a beginner you may not know who to look for so let me tell you what to look for in your online golf tips. Find someone who is affiliated with the PGA of America. Better yet, find a PGA of America Master Professional in Instruction or a PGA of America Certified Professional in Instruction. I would also suggest to Google Top 100 Teachers for a list.
  • Access – Create a plan and stick with it. It is very easy to jump from idea to idea if you do not think something is working fast enough. Make sure the idea makes sense to you and you understand why you would want to implement it into your golf swing.

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…
