Tips to choose the perfect golf coach

  • Location: the best thing is to find a golf coach who stays close to your home or office. However, if the coach is living far but has a good knowledge about the game, you must choose him. He will impart well-defined instructions and teach you about the nuances of golf.
  • Personality: Several instructors teach golf in order to make quick money. however, you must choose an instructor who has a passion to spread awareness about the game as well as the commitment to teach the students. A junior or an adult teacher is suitable for beginners and advanced golfers respectively.
  • Affordability: You cannot determine the quality of a golf coach according to the fees charged by him/her. An instructor charging lower fees may be well versed with required skills. On the other hand, a person who charges higher fees may not necessarily be a good teacher. Analyze the skills and background of the coach before hiring his teaching services.
  • Communication skills: the instructor should have a good understanding about your learning aptitude as well as the communication style to be adopted during the training process. a good golf instructor is one who tests your skills initially before starting the program. Usually good coaches learn about the weak points of the player and prepare a training schedule that will sharpen the preexisting skills as well as teach new skills.

Moreover, the teacher must be patient during the process and allow the player to grasp the skills of the game in a natural way. You cannot use the carrot-and-stick policy when you are teaching golf to an amateur.
