On Course Playing Lesson - Brad Myers PGA

When a golfer books a lesson, they are probably not thinking that the session will be an on course playing lesson

The vast majority of the time, they are expecting to go to the driving range with their golf coach and stand in a station and hit ball after ball. 

There is a big difference between playing golf and playing golf swing. When you are on the range, most players are playing golf swing. 

What I mean by that is that they are more worried about how their swing feels and what the proper golf swing mechanics are as opposed to what the ball is doing and where it is ending up. 

What is a playing lesson?

In one of these sessions, you will be accompanied by your instructor as you play holes on the golf course. 

Of course, you can work on swing mechanics but most of the time the goal is to better understand strategy and/or course management that will allow you to shoot lower scores. 

What Does An On Course Golf Lesson Cost?

The cost will vary throughout the country as well as the experience of the instructor. However, the average cost for a nine-hole playing lesson is $150-$200. 

Before scheduling, you will want to ask if the green fees and cart fees are included within the quoted price.

Before taking lessons from Brad I had a tough time breaking 100 even though I was a 15 handicap two years earlier. I was so frustrated with my game that I almost gave up golf altogether. After just four lessons (and lots of practice) I am striking the ball better than in my entire life!! His calm, measured approach was a perfect match to my personality. There was no magic formula but rather a return to the fundamentals of a solid golf swing which I am building day by day. Golf is fun again! I look forward to continuing my lessons with Brad and becoming the golfer I always dreamed of being.

I have been playing golf for a long time and decided to take a few lessons with Brad. I had not been hitting the ball that well and after just the first lesson with Brad I saw improvement. I played a few days following the first lesson and hit my drives better than I had been for several years. Brad has a way of fine tuning simple things that bring improvement. He is very good at making the adjustments simple and with practice, repeatable. Looking forward to several mor sessions with Brad. Thanks Brad!!!!

My first experience with Brad was when I signed up for his golf lessons offered through the Suncoast Technical College. I was impressed with his knowledge and excellent teaching skills. After finishing my group lessons I was able to start playing. He helped immensely. I then attended few of his clinics and signed up for private lessons. What a huge difference it made! He helped with some adjustments that improved my overall distance. The biggest difference was the improvement I saw with my drive. I had better distance and accuracy which in turn helped me with my confidence. If you are a beginner or an experienced golfer, I highly recommend Brad.

I recently had a lesson with Brad and it was time well spent. It was also obvious that he not only knows a lot about golf, he knows just as much about teaching golf. That to me, is of paramount importance if I'm the student! He gave me different ways to practice the skills we worked on and didn't overwhelm me with too many things to remember. Brad is also a really nice guy. I had never met him and was a bit nervous at first. He was kind, encouraging, and quickly made me feel more comfortable. I highly recommend him and won't be taking lessons from anyone else.

I have seen Brad only a few times thus far, and already, he has helped me cut a ton of strokes from my golf game. And just last week, I shot my best round to date. I highly recommend seeing Brad if you wish to improve your golf game.

If you want to play better golf, go see Brad! Before taking lessons from him, I truly did not understand my swing and specifically what to do when it was off. Last week, I started a round well enough but and at the ninth and tenth hole, I lost my swing. Instead of getting frustrated, I was able to refocus on Brad's had been teaching me and turned my round around and finished strong. Even the guys I was playing with noticed the difference. I have seen great improvement and more enjoyment in my game thanks to Brad. He is a great teacher and coach!

I attended Brad’s putting clinic and thoroughly enjoyed it! He was very detailed and concise with his directions and made it easy to understand the drills we were working on. Each drill tested different aspects of the putting stroke that has helped me shave strokes off my game! Brad was great to be around and extremely helpful!

Brad is an excellent golf instructor, he helped me understand the basic concepts of the golf swing. Brad gave me drills that I can go back to when my old habits start creeping back into my golf swing. Easy to talk to and made practice enjoyable

Who Should Take A Playing Lesson?

Common thought is that a golf playing lessons are only for “better players.” This is simply not true. 

Since you can work on all aspects of the game, these sessions can benefit all levels of players. 

Trying to Break 100

In talking about strategy, maybe the player that is trying to break 100 learns that they can shoot a lower score by keeping the driver in the bag and use a different club off of the tee. 

Trying to Break 90

As players are getting better, they may have a single shot that is giving them a problem when on the golf course. 

For example, the player might be struggling with hitting a shot from deep rough. This could be from the fairway or close to the green. This is difficult to create while on a practice tee. 

Trying To Break 80

A player trying to break 80 has some golf skills. With their coach, they can talk about which shot they should try to produce depending on where the hole location is located.  

Opposed to popular belief, aiming directly at the flag is not always the best strategy for you to shoot your lowest scores.

Conclusion

If you are having difficulty with taking your good golf swing from the practice tee to the course, booking a golf lesson literally on the course can help you bridge the gap. 

No matter your skill level, hiring a golf coach to watch you on the golf course can be an eye opening experience as you can be swinging differently on the course as opposed to the practice tee.
