Don't just leave it just up to the Coach...
Here are some tips for better communication between the golfer and the teacher:
- Come Early - get to your lesson at least 30 minutes early to find out where you need to go, have an active warm up which includes stretching, and hit golf balls with several clubs.
- Share your Goals - be open, honest and realistic with the current state of your game and what your golf goals are. The more open you are, the more the coach can design a customized plan for you.
- Spill the Beans - tell us what hurts even if it does not seem relevant. We want know about pain on and off the course, past surgeries and any other ailments. In order to help learn a swing that is pain free, we need to know what is going on.
- Tell Us How You Learn - like most people, you probably learn in a multitude of ways but some have preferences. If you prefer to see/feel/hear what is going on, ask for the information to be relayed that way.
