Armed and Dangerous

Teaching, Coaching, & Player Development Committee Best Practice
Marc Lapointe, PGA – Marc Lapointe Golf – Fort Mill, SC

Golfers come to the lesson tee every day armed and dangerous. They listen to their buddies, the Golf Channel, or read the latest golf magazine and try to implement all of those tips at the same time. The challenge with all this knowledge is often how they interpret the information and the relevancy to their own swing.  As golf instructors, our job during a lesson is to get inside the golfer’s head to determine what they trying to do and assist them in sorting it out. With this in mind, I’m really careful about the information I give during a lesson, as well as the delivery in order to reduce the chance of a student misunderstanding the information.
