Normally it is not our thing to give tips, advice or promote some crappy game improvement gadget. In fact we have been known to poke a few light hearted jokes at that sort of stuff. That said, we do want everyone to enjoy their round of golf and speak positively about the game. Through the years of hacking up these courses, I’ve noticed a good 95% or more of the people I’ve played with could use a lesson or two, myself included.
After doing some research, I’ve taken the liberty and compiled 5 reasons why we should take golf lessons. When I speak to other golfers about taking lessons the general sentiment is they’re expensive and not necessary. These two reasons are obvious indicators that no research was done. I would suggest taking a few moments and look into finding a good golf pro in your area that offers his or her services. So here we go…
- It’s an investment – Think of it this way, the money spent now will have a good ROI in the many years ahead. You can always refer back to what was learned to help shoot a better round.
- Short game techniques – Learning how to perform approach shots, chipping and pitching is perhaps the most important part to your game besides…
- Putting – Let’s face it, a 3 putt sucks and is very frustrating. Getting some insight on this boosts our confidence and could put a couple extra dollars in our pockets…but I never said that.
- Makes our round more enjoyable – As with anything, knowledge and experience gives us the advantage to do whatever task is at hand. And whenever we are prepared it’s a lot easier to have fun.
There you have it. Don’t be afraid to to spend a little of your hard earned money on something that will keep giving back to you. The object is to have a good time on the course. Even if you only take a couple lessons it’s worth it. Heading to the 19th hole in a good mood because we played well and not because they serve alcohol is a great feeling. Now go get learned!
Hit’em long…yell FORE!!!
