i gree with HP and dont include the time you spend on the conversation to his 1 hour lesson i am sure he will appreciate that.
The instructor should tell his or her ‘Magic of the Game’. A personal story about how they learned, why they play, and what the game means to them. It instills the passion of the instructor which will set the stage for a journey of a lifetime. If done right, they will never forget the day they began.
Then putter grip…

peter if the coach cant get you hitting it better in your first lesson get another coach thats MHO i am not a believer of you have two take two steps back befor you take one step forward thats a load of rot
Whether or not it is correct quite often I think one of the most important things in the first lesson is to get the student hitting it better. That way the student trusts that the teacher knows how to make them better and will come back for more lessons.
I think this has to be the case as with so many teaching options available to students the teachers really have to prove in the students mind that they are right for the job. If you changed someones grip in the first lesson (unless they already have a great swing) they will hit the ball terribly and the change most likely wont stick and they wont go back to the pro again…

Good to hear you are having a crack at improving your swing Node. I am in the same boat. Just out of curiosity did you buy a package of a few lessons?
Ok well I’m in the Swing/upgrade zone….
My current instructor at the local Driving range knows me quite well from going there and has given me the odd free tip.
But when I set up a series of instructions with him he sent me out to warm up, watched me from front & side then video taped me playing 6i full shots and then we viewed it together.
First he told me what he liked and then showed me what we needed to improve, why it needs to be improved and then we proceed back out to the range, corrected my grip and 1 other part of my swing and gave me some drills to practice it.
So I suppose the grip was his first change he made with my swing upgrade.
