Are You New To The Game?
Our advice is to take lessons! Golf is not a sport that can be learned by reading books and watching videos. As with any skill, there are good golf habits and bad golf habits. If you are brand new to the game you can’t tell the difference. Are you griping the club the correct way? Is your posture correct? Learn how to practice your pitch shots. Golf lessons from a pro give you a stable foundation for building your skills.

No matter how well trained your muscles, the subconscious mind STILL MUST load instructions for the body muscles to follow every time you swing a golf club. Unless you play 12 months a year you are probably out of practice. Getting lessons helps you rebuild some of that intuition.

Is Your Game Getting Worse Instead of Better?
Is this your feeling? I love the game of golf but it is no fun at all playing like I have been. It happens to almost everyone, where for no reason your game just seems to get worse. If your average scores are still 110+ then you aren’t going to be any good at diagnosing your own issues and trying to fix them. You might get some decent advice from YouTube videos, but you’re not going to properly implement any good advice without a solid enough foundation. You really need to start over and get back to the basics with someone who can build your swing from the ground up. A few golf lessons can help you pinpoint what changed in your game.
Are Your Golf Game Plateaus Leveling Off?
When you first begin the game of golf, you likely see improvements in your game happen quickly. As time continues, the changes and improvements can become subtler and your ability and score can start to level off. You’ve reached a plateau where your game doesn’t seem to change or improve over time despite how much you try. For many golfers, this can be understandably frustrating! Thankfully, plateaus can be worked through at any level. Check in with your pro to help you.
