|Find Out How To Slash Your Golf Score... In One Day !
The casual golfer who would like to brush up their game,
and the person new to it, don't always have the time to
commit to a long course of lessons. For them, a one-day
session on the golf course may be enough to smooth away
some rough edges, or in the case of a new player, it may
show them just where they really need help, and they can
enroll in a course or lessons that address those issues.
Many courses and golf schools will offer a one-day course
of instruction, which may start in the morning or
afternoon, and cover nine holes of their course. Some
people prefer being out in the actual environment of the
golf course, and for them, this session may provide both
tips on their game, and a chance to enjoy the outdoors.
Depending on how the school has structured these sessions,
you may be able to take a private lesson, as a group, or as
couples. Ideally, if you need more focus on some aspects
of your game, either the private or couples lesson is best,
as there will be fewer distractions for both you and the
Just as in "full" school programs that last several weeks
of lessons and practice, you'll cover golf basics such as
the type of clubs a bag includes, what they are used for,
and how to get the most out of them.
Lessons start as soon as you step up to the tee, with
instruction on how to approach the ball,
body, estimate the impact required for a good drive, and
body positioning on both the upswing and follow through.
Once you're onto the fairway, you'll be dealing with the
change from woods to irons, and the situations in which
each should be used. This is also the area where
inexperienced golfers, and even the experts, sometimes find
themselves in trouble with the sand traps and roughs. Your
instructor will provide the strategies, stance, and proper
swings to chipping yourself out of bad spots, as well as
how to get the most distance out of a shot off the rough.
Onto the green, and you'll learn how to make the most of
your putter, taking into consideration the angle of the
shot, rises or dips in the ground, the grass around the
cup, and how to properly estimate the amount of power
needed to get the ball to the flag and not beyond it.
Along with the practical lessons on your clubs, shots and
strategies, most instructors will also touch on the mental
aspect of the game. It's not something just for PGA
players, and even the weekend duffer will benefit from
learning to focus and tune out the world around them.
