Can Golf School Help Or Hinder Your Golf Swing?

Is it really that hard of a decision to make when first starting to play the game of golf? Is it really that hard to understand for a beginner to not be out there on a regulation golf course? That probably the foursomes behind you are perturbed and angry? That your probably ruining their day with all of your hacking going on and slowing play down to a crippling crescendo.

Did you ever realize to yourself that you don’t belong out there? That you should take your golf swing to the driving range until you learn at least how to hit a little white golf ball. If you do want to play then your skills should be on a short executive course.

Slow play is the number one problem that most public not so much semi or private golf courses face in trying to keep the traffic coming back to play again. The public golf course that I play on, the average round is about 5 1/2 hours long. This practically kills the rest of your day from doing anything else.

So how do golf courses overcome this problem? My opinion is that a golfer shouldn’t be allowed to play on a regulation golf course if he can’t come close to breaking 100. You can tell those golfers. They have no business playing because they have no idea how to swing a golf club. They also don’t know the rules nor the etiquette of the game. Many of them flat out don’t care!

Another way to overcome slow play is for each golfer to take on their own responsibility to learn the game which includes etiquette and the rules set forth for fair play. It can be governed by local or U.S.G.A.

I believe the best way for golfers to improve the mechanics of their golf swing is by taking lessons. This can apply to someone just beginning or has been playing for a very long time. I frequently get lessons from my head pro when my swing goes out of kilter and needs to be readjusted.

Golf school is another great way to learn the mechanics of a golf swing. I’m a firm believer that you can’t improve your golf swing unless your able to analysis,understand and implement the mechanics of a good golf swing. It needs to be broken down into different parts. This goes for anything you do in life when you are building something of value.

In finding a right golf school their program should be top-notch. It should have a teaching facility that includes weatherproof hitting shelters, several putting and chipping greens, trouble shot improvement areas, indoor classrooms with state-of-the-art video equipment for swing analysis, and several practice ranges with endless piles of balls.

Most golf schools will have an 18 hole Championship golf course connected to it. What’s most important about a golf school there needs to be a lot of individual attention. There should be a pro for every small group of 5 – 10 students.

The emphasis is clearly on getting results. If a student’s swing needs to be dramatically changed or altered, if a student’s approach to the game needs to be completely rearranged, then that’s what should happen. They can quickly tear you apart and put it all back together. Putting your game in better shape than they found it.For many it can mean overwhelming and a traumatizing experience.

Video streaming is very important evidence of how good or bad one’s own individual golf swing is. It can provide inconceivable evidence that your not the second coming of Byron Nelson. They really will grill you through the paces. Each student will hit hundreds, several hundreds, of golf balls a day. The instructor makes the students work at the lessons over and over again. When the program’s complete, one’s golf swing isn’t the same no more. It’s better. It almost has to be.

After they change your mechanics in your golf swing you’ll notice that your hitting the golf ball straighter, farther and more solidly. It will feel strange and unfamiliar at first but, the changes become results producing.

Most good golf schools are at least a three day program. Usually, the first two days are filled with separate sessions on different aspects of the game. Such as driving, hitting irons, chipping and putting, dealing with trouble shots. On the final day, the class normally goes out with the pro on to the golf course, and plays at least nine holes.

You have him there as your own personal coach, mentor and cheerleader, before retiring back to school for one final round of practice. Most golf schools will allow you to play as much as you want after instructions is completed for the day.

Rule 6-7. Undue delay or Slow play. The player shall play without undue delay and in accordance with any pace of play guidelines which may be governed by club rules. Between completion of a hole and playing from the next teeing ground, the player shall not unduly delay play.

The resulting penalties are: Match play- Loss of Hole. Stroke play- two strokes. Subsequent offense is Disqualification.
