Stop Wasting Your Time And Money On Golf Lessons


Hello. I’m Brian Fitzgerald. The Golf Doctor. And today I want you to stop wasting your time and money
getting golf lessons. That’s a bit of a weird way to start. Stay tuned. [MUSIC] So why is a teaching golf professional earning
a living from coaching people telling you. You should stop wasting your time and money
in getting golf lessons. It sounds a bit strange but it actually makes
sense. Hopefully it makes sense. Most people are wasting their time because
they think a golf lesson is going to give them the better score. It’s going to make them take money off their
friends. So the typical scenario is. They come in and they pay money for the lesson. They have the lesson. Then they go straight from the lesson out
on the course and they think they are going to be fixed. Not even close. A golf lesson will give you an insight into
thing you need to change to improve your golf swing. Just because you have the lesson, doesn’t
mean to say that you have got it and that you’ve made change. You may understand what it is that you need
to change. But you won’t have it by the end of the golf
lesson. How do we get it? The only way you can get it is to actually
repeat. So we need to do repetition. Whatever the change is to your swing. You have got to learn to repeat it. It takes many, many repetitions to ingrain
a new habit. Unfortunately most people don’t spend time
having repartitions. They just repeat the golf lesson. So I had a client recently book a 5 lesson
package for me and he turned up for the first lesson and he told me he had booked a lesson
every single day for the rest of the week. The first thing I did was cancel it. Because there was no way in the world 5 lessons
in 5 days was actually going to help the guy. Because my formula for success is golf lesson
plus 3 times practice equals improvement. If you just have a lesson and you don’t touch
a club between the lessons there is no way you are going to improve. And if you do improve you are lucky. What you need to do between the lessons is
far more important that the golf lesson itself. Now I am not saying that the golf lesson isn’t
important. It is. Of course it is. But it is what you do between the lessons
that really sets you up for the next lesson. So you want to get to the point where if you
have been told to work on something. You work on it and you keep doing it and you
repeat it time after time so that it becomes second nature. Now you don’t have to hit thousands of golf
balls. But I am a big believer in having lots of
practice swings. And probably the one piece of advice i can
give to everybody that will definitely improve their golf swing is to take 60 practice swings
per day. 20 in the morning, 20 at lunch, 20 at night. Do it slowly. Do it in front of the mirror. I’ve said it before and I will continue saying
it until I am in the grave. 60 practice swings per day is a great way
of embedding a new habit. So whatever the move is that your coach has
been trying to get you to do. Do it. 3 times a day in lots of 20. If you can do that practice in between the
lesson. You will definitely improve. So it’s about repetition and the more you
repeat it the more you will remember what it takes to do that movement. So that when you get out on the golf course. Hopefully it will happen automatically. But so many people have the lesson. They see an improvement during the lesson
and they have hit a few shots in a row under the watchful eye of their golf coach. And they think I’ve got it. Let me get out on the course. And whatever they have been working on hasn’t
transferred to the course yet. The only way it can transfer to the course
is through practice and repetition. So that;s the theme for this. If you just want to fix your golf swing by
having a golf lesson. Don’t waste your time and money. If you want to improve your golf swing by
having lessons and then committing to practice between the lessons. Go and have a lesson it’s really good for
you. You will benefit. So I hope that makes sense to you. Ah. What have you found has worked for you in
