Golf Tips - The Coach Is Always Right

By Tom Ward

There are so many opinions about how to play the game because a lot of it is personal preference. When you're first learning, you'll get a lot of information about a lot of preferences from many sources. This can be very confusing, especially if you still don't have a solid understanding of the laws and principles pertaining to the game of golf. The Golf Business is a billion dollar industry of misinformation!

To avoid this confusion, make a commitment to follow your instructor's recommendations until you feel you are well grounded in the basics which takes very little time. I have two rules regarding coaching golfers:

Rule Number 1: The coach is always right.
Rule Number 2: If the coach is wrong, reread rule Number 1.

"He was never defeated by the vicissitudes of the game." *
