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.

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…
