Why a Lessons with a Golf Pro beats an Instruction Book or Video Every Time

It is the time of the year when people who perhaps do not play the game of golf, often consider buying a loved one a golfing present. One of the most popular items to gift someone, especially a high-handicap golfer, or a beginner, is a golf instruction video, or a golf instruction book.

 

Certainly both of these items have their use, but can they really improve your game, or is there a better way you can help a loved one shoot lower scores on the course next year?

That’s what Gorilla Golf have attempted to find out…

Golfing Dangers: When Animals Want to Play Through – Let Them

When you step out on a golf course, while away on holiday, it is perhaps one of life’s most enjoyable and relaxing moments. So too should it have been for Dougie Thompson last week as he celebrated a friend’s wedding, in the Mexican resort of Cancun, with a round of golf at the local Iberostar Cancun Golf Club.

 

The 58-year-old Scotsman, who now lives in Toronto, Canada, had shot his ball into a bunker on the course, near to a bush shrouded lagoon.

Mr Thompson lined up his bunker shot and was happy to see his ball fly onto the green, however as he turned to leave the bunker an 12-foot long crocodile leapt from the bushes, clamping its jaws around Mr Thompson’s leg.

The video below was taken by a visitor to the same golf course and shows the kind of croc’s that lie in wait for the unsuspecting golfer.

Learning to Play – The Best Way?

Here’s the dilemma:

My son is now 10 years old and has expressed an interest in moving from being my (underpaid) caddy to actually joining us for a round of golf.

He’s played on pitch and putt courses and enjoyed a summer camp a year or two ago, but other than that he’s just hit balls on the range when he’s ventured there with me.

 

As a dutiful dad, I’ve tried to give him a few simple pointers with mixed results and now that he seems to be getting more serious about golf I have to consider one thorny issue:

  • Do I let him follow the “Bubba Watson” path and find his own golf swing?
  • Or, do I spend a little cash and get him a few lessons with an instructor to help him along?
