On Taking Lessons

“Golf is a learning experience, not something you just pick up. Learning to play the game is like learning to play the piano; you’ve got to practice a lot of scales before mastering a symphony. And, while reading books and magazines and, watching the shows on The Golf Channel can detail golfing fundamentals and impart considerable knowledge, they cannot tailor specific instruction to the fine degree you would need to become a good player. To approach that level of skill, you’ll need personal attention from a teacher who can deal with your own personal physical and mental quirks.” GroutGolf
