WHY TAKE A LESSON FROM AN LPGA CLASS "A" PRO?
Did you know that not all golf instructors are certified teaching professionals? Well, they're not; and taking a lesson from a certified pro makes a big difference!Here's just a few reasons why:
Golf instructors who are certified must pass a variety of tests which include Playing Ability, Written Tests, and Practical Teaching Evaluations.
- Ball flight laws
- Laws, Principles & Preferences- A Model, by Dr. Gary Wiren
- Club Fitting Fundamentals
- USGA Rules
What to expect during your lesson with a Class A pro:
Your LPGA Class A teaching professional interviews the student discovering: goals for lesson, physical limitations, previous golf history, and sports experience. After observing the students swing from various angles your professional clarifies student goals in relation to playable ball flight, suggests changes (cause/effect) to integrate with student goals and feedback. Your professional will relate swing theory to students understanding. A practice plan will be linked to goals and lesson priorities.
"The good teacher has a method; the great teacher has many. The good teacher prescribes; the great teacher diagnoses, evaluates the pupil, then prescribes. Recognizing individual differences in students makes teaching an art..." - Dr. Gary Wiren -
Remember not all golf instructors pass the stringent tests of certified teaching professionals. Make sure you're getting top-notch, quality golf lessons from a certified LPGA or PGA teaching pro.
