Who Should Take Golf Lessons?
The answer to this question is simple. Any golfer wanting to improve should take golf lessons. While this would include just about every golfer alive, there are several reasons why some golfers should not take golf lessons, and they are: 1) if you don't have the time or the inclination to practice 2) you aren't willing to make the effort to find a golf instructor who is a good fit for you 3) you can't afford an instructor who is a good fit for you 4) if you don't have patience and an open mind. An open mind is necessary because what you learn may be very different from anything you've worked on before. Patience is necessary because what goes into your head must eventually work its way into your body. This takes time and a strong degree of determination.
A special note for those who are beginning golf (and anyone who knows a beginning golfer). As a beginner, you can benefit the most from proper golf instruction and be hurt the most, possibly to the point of forever ruining your golf swing, from improper golf instruction. I can understand wanting to save money by taking inexpensive golf lessons, especially since you aren't sure if you will ever truly have an interest in golf. Don't do it! Saving a few dollars isn't worth the chance of ruining your golf potential. Keep in mind, it is much easier to learn a good golf swing from the start than it is to improve a bad swing that is fully developed and ingrained.
If you aren't willing to find, and pay for, an instructor that is right for you then don't take any lessons until you're ready to commit to the game. Go to the range and do whatever comes naturally. Do not accept golf swing tips from anyone, including relatives, friends, etc.—they will almost certainly hurt your golf swing, even though they are well intentioned.
