Playing Lesson

There are many different ways of taking a golf lesson. The most common kind of lesson is taken at a driving range facility. There you will develop the techniques to your golf swing, build your routine, and learn the rules of golf and etiquette of the game. Once a student of golf has packed the associated basics under their belt, they will then want to go to the golf course and attempt to use what they have so diligently learned. Does the following sound familiar? "I had the perfect swing on the driving range and I canít seem to bring it to the golf course." If you have mentioned this at least once during a round of golf, you might want to consider taking a PLAYING LESSON. A playing lesson could be your missing link. Itís a lesson that is just as valuable as learning to swing your golf clubs. Itís a lesson on the golf course with a golf professional, learning HOW to PLAY golf.

A lesson on the driving range will consist of many ways to understand your golf swing. A lesson on the golf course not only enhances the understanding of your golf swing, but it will take you to the next level, a lesson in course management. During a playing lesson you will learn how to think and act on a golf course. Most people can ruin their game by over analyzing their swing during play. The golf course is not the time nor place to do such a thing. It is the time and place to USE your practiced pre-shot routine and kick into your "imagination of situation" or course management mindset. Good course management skills lend itself to a successful day on the golf course. Consider the following as part of your instruction during a playing lesson:

  • Analyzing wind direction
  • Understanding terrain or lie of the ball and justified stances
  • Golf equipment and club selection
  • Shot selection
  • Judgment of distance
  • Rules of golf (discussion as the situation demands)
  • Etiquette of play
  • Pace of play, playing through, letting others play through
  • Relaxation and patience
  • How to analyze what you may need to practice after your round of golf

The format of a playing lesson should be arranged to be played with just you and your instructor. A playing lesson can take more time per hole than a normal round of golf. Plan your tee-time accordingly so as not to hold up others on the golf course (or you will learn the concept of "letting others play through" very quickly in your lesson!) This is the most overlooked lesson format of them all, yet possibly the most valuable towards the development of your game.
