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.

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

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…
