Ten Ways to Improve Your Golf Game Golf Lesson

Ten minutes. That’s all the time is takes for you to improve your golf game. No, it’s not an infomercial product, it’s a simple golf lesson! Whether you’ve been golfing for three months or 30 years, a one-on-one lesson can benefit anyone hoping to fix their swing, stance and those tricky shots golfers always face on the course.

When planning your next tee time, get there about ten minutes earlier and schedule a lesson. Though it seems like a short time, there are many things you can learn in a ten minute golf lesson. Here are ten things you can learn in a ten minute golf lesson:

  1. How to get your backswing in sync. Timing is everything, ask your PGA professional what drills he/she recommends to help you get your swing in rhythm.
  2. How to improve your tempo to add distance. It’s the old axiom, don’t swing harder, just improve your tempo.
  3. How to know if your swing is one or two-plane. Huh? Think of it this way, have you ever seen Jim Furyk’s swing? Think two-plane with him.
  4. How to use distance control to avoid three-putts. The dreaded three putt will sink a round. Get in the habit of shortening your backswing.
  5. How to read breaking putts from grain and slope. A great putt starts with a great read. Make sure you know what to look for on a green.
  6. How to align your ball to be a more accurate putter. Do you use visual cues to help determine the proper line?
  7. How to switch your focus from line to speed before you putt. You think you know where to hit the ball, but do you know how hard to hit it?
  8. How to “bounce” your wedge through the sand. Not all sand shots are created equal, work with a golf professional to understand the differences.
  9. How to hit high, soft sand shots to tight pins. It’s all about loft and lie, isn’t it? But how do you know how to hit that high hanging sand shot?
  10. How to hit the tricky long bunker shot. Two inches behind the ball, right? Not necessarily in this case, but a quick lesson will help you get out of the sand.

Who knew! You can learn how to tackle these tips and tricks in only ten minutes? Just think about what you can learn in a twenty minute golf lesson.
