5 Reasons Why You Should Invest in Golf Lessons

Have you ever wondered why the top professionals in golf. Those competing for millions of dollars each week in tournaments around the world, have coaches? If nothing else, that fact is proof that everyone, regardless of how well they golf, or if they’ve ever golfed before, or how old they are, need golf lessons. This is why you should invest in golf lessons.

But the unfortunate truth is that too many golfers feel the only answer to learn how to play golf. Or to make their game better is to buy expensive clubs, or play more often, or analyze the pro swings on the Golf Channel hoping to spot something that will magically turn their game around.

But there’s one simple reason why better clubs, playing three times a week and/or trying to learn more about what goes into a good swing, are not the answer to making your game the best it can be.

Golf is an individual sport. And not ‘individual’ in the sense that singles tennis is an individual sport either.

Golf is just about the only sport where your main competition is yourself. That means the path to better play is unique to every golfer. That’s the basic reason why every golfer should invest in golf lessons. Without lessons, it’s very difficult to learn how to play properly and to perfect your game.

Here are just a few other reasons why you should invest in golf lessons

1. It’s the best way for beginners to learn golf

If you’re just taking up the sport, it’s more important to learn how to play golf properly versus other sports. From learning how to approach the game to understand the importance of club selection and the details of your grip, there are many minute details about the game. Not learning from the start how to do any one of them properly can mean you will never be able to play your best golf.

2. You can’t See what you’re doing right & wrong

With yourself as competition, golf is often cited as being a mental game as much or more than it is a physical game. It’s extremely difficult, if not impossible for a golfer to know exactly what was the difference in the swings that produced a perfect shot and a slice.

But professional golf instructors understand the mechanics of a swing, the importance of body positioning and every other aspect of a good swing. They will very quickly spot a problem in your swing that can make the difference between a flub and a great shot.

3. You’ll stop doing the wrong thing

This is why new clubs, or videos, or frequent play won’t help as much as you hope they will. Let’s say there’s a problem with your grip. Yes, getting a set of better clubs will help improve your game, but they’re not going to correct your grip. Yes, you’ll play better if you practice more often, but it won’t correct your grip. Yes, reading golf books, magazines and websites will give you more insights that could improve your game, but they won’t correct your grip problem.

What will correct your grip problem? Lessons from a golf pro who understands your particular problem.

4. It’s an Investment in Yourself

First, whether you’re a beginner or have played for years, it doesn’t make sense to invest in new clubs, a golf club membership or anything else golf-related if you’re not going to invest in learning to play the game better.

But you decided to give golf a try and fell in love with it for a reason. You enjoy challenging yourself. You look forward to playing a game in the great outdoors. You can’t think of anything else that feels quite like making clean contact with the ball and watching it rise through the air exactly as it should. You need the exercise.

No matter why you’re interested in or in love with the game of golf, with all of that riding on it, why wouldn’t you want to play better?

5. The Limited Golf Season in Ontario

Most local golfers will only get to play for six to eight months of the year. When the season finally arrives, you just want to get out there and play. You don’t want to spend too much time learning how to play or correcting problems with your game. Professional golf instruction is the fastest ways to learn or improve your game, so it’s even more important to get golf lessons in Ontario.

If you’re looking for one of the best places for golf lessons in Ontario, look no further than the Royal Ashburn Golf Club. Led by Director of Golf Instruction, Dave Castellan, every golf instructor at the Royal Ashburn Golf Academy are PGA of Canada golf professionals and trained and certified instructors.
