5 Tips for New Golfers
Hi! My name is Christina Ricci and I’d like to personally welcome you tot he game of golf. It is hands down, the best game in town. With that, I’d like to share some advice that I hope is helpful as you begin your journey.
I could not have dropped to a 5 handicap in 5 years without lots of professional golf lessons. And, I really enjoy learning, albeit at times, I get overly frustrated. For me, learning is fun and it should be for you as well!
When I started, I signed up for a series of 10 lessons. I got a deal by signing up for multiple lessons and more importantly, it meant that I was making a commitment to improve!
Group instruction is a terrific way to meet new players and work on elements of your game that you cannot typically get to with your one-on-ones, such as the short game, bunker, etc.
The most important factor when spending money for professional lessons is don’t waste your money! If you take a lesson and then do not work on the principles in-between lessons, then what’s the point? Or I see this quite often—and I was guilty of this—you’ll stray off track. You read a tip in a golf magazine and before you know it, you are heading down the wrong road. Moral: Stay on track!
