Can't Find Any Good
Golf Instructors Nearby?
For the golfer who is serious about improving, finding the right instructor is very important, but can be a challenge. For those seeking more moderate golf improvement, you'll want a good instructor, which means you'll still have to do some searching.
For the serious golfer, even in a fairly large city, you may have trouble finding the right instructor, although you should be able to find some instructors who do have a passion to teach. Unfortunately, passion doesn't guarantee skill and knowledge, but it is better than nothing.
If you can't find a Golf Instructor who has put in a lot of effort to learning the golf swing and how to teach it, you may still be able to find a golf instructor who can improve your game. Consider (with conditions) getting golf instruction from a golf instructor who is, or was, a very good player.
However, think long and hard before letting this "good player" try to teach you much about the golf swing. Remember, tour players take more lessons than anyone. If the best players in the world truly understood the golf swing, all they would need would be a video camera so they could improve their own swings!
So rather than have a "good player" try to instruct you on what a correct golf swing is, you should have this good player teach you how to play. In other words, how to think on the course and how to hit the different types of golf shots needed to play well. After all, that's what they know how to do. Have them teach you course strategy, how to hit low shots, high shots, hooks, slices, fades and draws, and whatever else they can think of to help you lower your scores. Focus especially hard on the short game.
If you're serious about improving your game significantly, your golf swing will have to improve. For this, you should be willing to make the extra effort to find the best Golf Instructor you can, even if it means driving a few hours every month or two!
