We had a really good question come in from a dewsweeper who is serious about improving their game. Is it beneficial to take a playing lesson.

I encourage all listeners and all of my students to take a playing lesson from their instructor or club professional. We all know that when we get on the golf course we frequently don’t hit the ball near as solid or as good as we do on the practice tee.

So many students take lessons and come back with the same scores. I like to find out why. If you are serious about getting better you should too.

Many times we will find that the scoring issues are not mechanic or swing related but rather decision making problems or short game or putting issues.

Playing lessons allow you and the instructor to both evaluate what really happens to you on the golf course.

Remember when you embark on a program to improve your game you want to PLAY better not just SWING better.
