What Is A Golf Webinar?

Very simply put it is an online golf seminar. It can come in a couple of different forms. It could be a pre-recorded presentation on a certain topic. For example, if you were attending a putting webinar, a presentation could be shown over the fundamentals of putting. Another form would be a live webinar. A live webinar is awesome because you have someone that you can communicate with through submitting questions or comments through a message board or Facebook. Google+ now offers what is called a Google+ hangout. This allows up to ten people to video conference each other. This type of golf web seminar would be the equivalent to taking part in a golf clinic. In many cases, multiple forms are used at once.

Why Attend Webinars? '
There are many benefits to attending a web seminar on golf. Here are just a few reasons:
1. Cost – Receiving instruction in this format is typically much less expensive than taking a one on one lesson. This is a great option for you no matter whether you are a rank beginner or have been playing the game for years.
2. No Travel Required – Maybe you live in a rural location and high level golf instruction is not near where you live. This format gives you access to many teachers and as long as you have an internet connection, you will have access to them.
3. Time – Face it, nobody has the time that they once had. This format allows you to watch when it is convenient for you to do so. Yes these events will be scheduled as it is a live event, however, many times these events are archived so you can watch it at you leisure if you cannot make it.
4. Interactive – The majority of events that I see are interactive. Of course, how much will be determined by the format selected above. Not only will you be able to interact and learn from the host, but, you will also be able to interact with others attending the event and learn from them as well.
5. Easy to leave or check out – Every topic is not for everyone. Depending on the audience, maybe the deep conversation about the amount of torque on a golf shaft does not interest you. If this is the case, you can go ahead and leave the event and still have the ability to go back and skim through it once it is posted in the archives.

Things to Remember
Webinars are a great way to learn new things without having to leave the office or spend a lot of money, but there are a few things you should remember to do in order to make sure your experience goes well.
What Should You Do First?
1. Check System Requirements - Since webinars require the use of your computer, make sure your system meets requirements from the webinar software that will operate the event. Also, if you are connecting from work (we will not tell), you should make sure the domain hosting the webinar is not blocked.
2. Download Necessary Software - Some webinars are completely web-based, but others require you to download software or browser plugins. Make sure you have all the appropriate software installed so you are not scrambling to get up and running while the webinar has already started.

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.…

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…

Junior Golf Lessons

It does not a rocket scientist to figure out the future of golf lies within growing junior golf. Depending on the age of your child and goals of your child, junior golf lessons can take many forms. Here is a short list of the options that are out there for your child to learn and enjoy the game of golf.

Private Junior Golf Lesson 
This is the traditional way to learn the game. A professional takes your child and teaches them one on one the fundamentals of the game. Although the child, if interested, can learn very quickly in the format, it is the most expensive way to learn how to play the game.

Junior Golf Camp 
Many kids are introduced to the game through a summer junior camp. Depending on the size of the camp, the kids are broken up in to groups typically by age although some camps divide students via skill level. It seems that students have to choose which sport they are going to play at a younger and younger age. With this being said, many camps are full of younger children so you wi…
