Taking a lesson from a PGA pro is one way to learn golf. Another
method is to teach yourself using golf tips like those found here at
GolfGist.com. Some great players are self-taught like Retief Goosen.
If ypu decide to go with a teaching pro find a pro who has a good reputation working with golfers of your skill level and
who takes the time to explain things thoroughly. Prepare for your lesson
by keeping track of your recent playing statistics like total numebr
putts, greens in regulation, fairways hit, etc.. Go over your goals with
the pro and asking how you both can work together to accomplish them.
This instruction section contains proven drills which will
complement your lessons. After your lesson write down key points to
remember. If possible video tape your lesson. Most importantly, practice
your new skills to effectively integrate them into your game.
