A good golf lesson can make a mid handicap player feel like a tour pro. With some focus on fundamentals and a pep talk on creating power, a decent player can see dramatic gains in their performance. Those who possess a solid skillset but lack consistency are always the quickest turnaround. With a little hard work, a sensible teacher can get a higher, straighter, and more reliable shot shape from their pupil in only a few range sessions. It doesn’t take long before a newfound sense of confidence will kick in. So much of scoring comes from believing in one’s ability. If there is anything that makes a golf professional worth their lesson price it’s finding a repeatable swing that creates a confident player. Once a golfer feels like they can take dead aim there isn’t much to stop them from shooting good scores.
