Why you should take a lesson and what you can expect?Many people are often embarrassed or avoid taking lessons because they are worried about what the coach may say. Others think that their swings are not fixable and that they simply have to continue to struggle and take the ups with the downs. Some even think that there is no hope for them and they are destined for a life of golfing misery. All of these can be valid reasons, but to me, they are just excuses for not taking a lesson, for not trying to improve your game based on sound advice from an individual who has knowledge of the golf swing. Admitted some of the advice that I have given doesn’t always go down to well, some people like what they hear and others don’t. Many will try and many will fall back into their old habits because they find it easier and more natural to do so. They don´t have to practice what they have been doing for months or maybe even years. So for these people, it is difficult to contemplate taking a lesson, they feel it would not be worth the money. They think that they would benefit more by playing. There are two main reasons for golfers not taking lessons:

Results and the speed of the change and improvement in your scores depends a lot on the individual player, the amount they are willing to practice coupled with their desire and need to learn and take on board new ideas. Some of the ideas may at first seem odd, but they are logical, so logical in fact that some of my clients have asked why they didn’t “think of that myself”. So why should you take a lesson?The obvious answer is to aid your improvement. I believe that all golfers want to improve and want to lower their scores. For some just playing more regularly can achieve this, but for others the inclusion of lessons is a must. It is always worth remembering that even the professionals on tour take regular lessons. For me the most important thing to consider when taking lessons is what you want to work on. But do not be hasty with your decision, for many the immediate thought is to hit the ball further or improve the driver, but the reality is the other areas of your game need more attention in the beginning. So goal setting is vital, together you must decide what you want to achieve and in what time frame you want to achieve it.
