So how do you go about finding a good teacher? Ask around. Look for someone who teaches a lot, not the guy behind the counter working part-time. Talk to the instructor and find out what his theories are. Watch him or her teach a lesson. Look at their attitude, personality, and demeanor. Talk to their students. And do not be afraid to ask questions during your lesson. If they can't tell you the reasons why you are about to make the changes you are going to make, then they are only guessing and hoping for results. After all, you want to trust what it is they are telling you. You have to have a plan. What is it you are trying to fix; your swing or your ball-flight? Don't make changes just to look better. Make your weaknesses your strengths. Stay committed and stay patient. Give the instructor a chance. Just as you can only be as good as the information you are getting, your instructor is only as good as what you pour in to your practice and how well you stick to your plan. Schedule a follow-up lesson so that you can have a check-up. This is important because it allows you to know if you need to continue to work on the correction or if you are over doing it. To change your scores you have to change something that you are doing. A good instructor can help you make the correct changes. I have been teaching full time since 1998 and have students that I have helped earn their PGA Tour card for the first time. Maybe you will be next?
I take great satisfaction in helping people do something that they couldn't previously before.
