The Different Ways To Learn Golf

By: Jim Brown

Time for leisure can be spent in anyway you like. Everyone has their own way of spending their free time whether it is catching up with your friends, scouring the mall for the latest trends and surfing the web for some interesting information and insights. If you want yours to be productive, try taking up a sport. But if you don't have a sport yet, then why don't you try golf. Unless you want to make a career out it, it will help ease out tensions and keep you relaxed because it is mostly spent outdoors.

Now learning is not a problem at all. If you really want to understand the game, you can ask a friend to teach you, hire a personal tutor, inquire in a country club for golf lessons or you can even be a self-taught golfer. To help you decide, here are a few bits and pieces of the options mentioned earlier.

Ask a Friend

If you have friends who are passionate players of the game, why don't you ask them to teach you then? This way you could learn something new and at the same time catch up with each other's lives. You could also save a lot of money doing it. Heck, you can even just borrow their equipment. However, you would have to adjust and find time since your schedule could clash with theirs.

Hire a Personal Tutor

There are golfers who would love to share their knowledge. You could check around your area if there some golfers who live near you. You could also check on various news media, not only the newspapers but also on the web for advertisements. Who knows you may chance upon a professional golfer and he or she is willing to teach you his or her technique. Just be wary of disguised crooks.

Go to a Country Club

Country clubs would seem like a very snobbish place with all the high and mighty personalities. Nevertheless, do not be intimidated. Joining country clubs does not mean that you would be one of those stuck-up rich people. Do not stereotype. You are there to learn anyways. It might be a bit pricey but it will be worth the experience of being around an arrogant group. This will help you adjust with different kinds of characters.

Teaching One's Self

Get books, videos and watch games about golf. Try to imitate professional golfers. Talk to people who are in this field and try to understand and enjoy the conversation. At first it will be hard, especially with all the terms you have to familiarize. But once you already know how to play and people will know that you taught yourself, you should leave them in awe.
