Online Golf Classes

Online golf classes are becoming more and more popular with many players. Back when the earth was cooling and I was learning how to play golf, we did not have the benefit of the internet. Outside of a private golf lesson, a golfer had to read a book or go through the monthly addition of Golf Digest. Boy… How things have changed! I believe for the good.

Group golf instruction on the internet takes many different forms. We get many questions around the subject and will answer the most asked questions below:

How Do I Find Online Golf Classes?

Online-Golf-Class-From-Golf-Coach-Brad-Myers-PGAAt the risk of sounding condescending… Google it. Is that not the answer to most questions that you have nowadays? Haha (I am laughing with you) It does really matter which browser you use. Simply type the phrase online golf clinics or something similar such as internet golf clinics, etc into Google, Bing or whatever your favorite search engine might be. If you are reading this… I am going to assume that you know how to use a search box.

With the ability to stream video available to a wide variety of people, online interactive golf lessons are becoming more and more accessible to golf coaches that are willing to put themselves “out there.” With apps like Tik Tok, Facebook, and Instagram, finding quality golf instruction information has never been easier.

What Skill Level Do I Need To Be before I Attend Online Golf Classes?

The offerings vary from very basic information for beginners to pretty deep discussions of theory. You will want to ask a few questions before plunking any money down. If it happens to be free, you might as well check it out as you never know what you might learn and you can leave anytime that you wish.

Many players like the fact that they are able to interact with the instructor. This allows them not only to ask personalized questions but also lets them to get to know the instructor’s personality. In addition, online golf instruction allows players to have access to many more instructors than we had access to “back in the day.”

What Technology Do I Need To Attend An Internet Golf Class?

If you are reading this. You already have the technology needed to attend. It really depends on what you have and where you are going to be when the online golf class takes place. For example, if it is in the evening, maybe you want o to watch it on your desktop computer or just sit on the couch and participate with your laptop, tablet or IPad.

If you are already on the driving range, as long as you have an internet connection or if you have a great data plan you can stream the event straight to your smartphone, Iphone or Droid. I usually have people laugh when I say this but I have had it happen to me. Someone will ask a question and unknown to me they are on a driving range. A few minutes later they show up again and thank me for the advice!

Can I Really Learn Anything From Online Golf Class?

As you can imagine, we get his question all of the time. I mean… A LOT. Here are my thoughts on it. The format of the clinic can take various formats. The two most popular formats are a presentation followed by Q&A or a straight Q&A.

In either format, you will be receiving new information. How you process it, understand it, and implement it. If you do not understand it, then you should keep asking questions and then go implement it.

When I say implement it, I mean give it some time. In my opinion, taking one bad swing and proclaiming that does not work is not implementing it. As long as I have been teaching and playing the game, Rarely (like never) have I given someone a piece of info and they “have it” on the very first swing and never lose it. We are human beings and… it just does not work that way.

So.. to answer the question, I do believe that you can learn something from online golf lessons as I have had students improve through them.

How Do I Know The Golf Instructor Is A Good One?

As we have learned from TV shows like Catfish on MTV, not everyone online is who they claim to be. As long as you have a camera and an internet connection, you can start spewing your beliefs about any topic out there and golf is no exception.

We have written another article (that you can read… Here) talking about how to find a good golf instructor or coach. The rules are the same whether it is finding one online or finding one to take in-person lessons.

Use your social networks and throw the question out to your followers, friends, etc. I have found them to be helpful and very truthful when I have asked questions to my audiences. Maybe too truthful? Haha

As online golf clinics are still fairly new, it is typical that people will question whether learning can happen or if it is just another fad. You should give one a try and decide for yourself if it beneficial to you or not.

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

Brad offered very constructive and useful suggestions in a really concise, simple manner. He was helpful and on point with what I needed to do to hit my driver better.
