My Way Or The Highway
Frequently, golfers tell me that they would like to take a golf lesson, but they want me to work with the golf swing they have. What they mean is they don't want me to make any significant changes to their golf swing. Is this how you feel? If so, you need to understand that not allowing an instructor to make significant changes severely limits your potential to improve.
If you ask me to make you a better golfer, but won't let me change your golf swing, what am I to do? I am not a magician! The quality of your golf swing is a major factor determining the level of your play.
If you shoot 95 and you're happy shooting 95, then obviously your swing is good enough. If you shoot 95 but you want to be shooting 85, then your swing is not good enough—you'll have to change your golf swing. It's really that simple.
I have non-swing related ideas and suggestions throughout this site that can help you play better and you can improve your short game to take a few strokes off your score. If you really want to improve, you'll have to bite the bullet and make your golf swing better i.e., change your golf swing.
The following is from page 1 of the March 11, 2011 issue of Golfweek magazine:
"Did I make changes?" Nicklaus asked last week. "I made changes constantly in my swing. That's how you get better. If you don't make changes, you don't improve. I don't care who you are, because your body continually changes."
