I used to time a lesson to be the day before a game, but the mistake I made was not practicing immediately after the lesson.

You need to go from the lesson to the 100 balls in a bucket, and swing through the changes to ingrain it to memory, mental and muscle wise.

Otherwise you walk away and forget.

So, I don't think it matters as much now, just get lessons whenever but work on your swing whenever you have spare time and you'll improve

Must be Deano. They are looking at it the wrong way around- lesson after the game when everything is still fresh in the mind. The druks would never consider that. :)

Sometimes when I have had a lesson it has taken 3 or 4 months for my game to equalise again (big change).  Sometimes, the change has been easy and has provided improvement almost immediately.

Further to what Kiwi wrote about playing lesson, what i did with my coach(who is also Kiwi's coach) is play my home course and work out what shots I need to hit on which holes.

 

we identified i was taking too aggressive lines on some holes and not being  attacking enough on others.

 

We identified I could not hit a cut shot, my normal swing was a nice draw which became a big hook if i tried to hit too hard on some holes if i was trying to get home or hit a big one.

 

Then we I had several lessons on how to hit a power cut  with drivers and iron shots.

My coach taught me this shot to use on 3 or 4 specific holes which we identified, so my line is now at fwy bunker with a cut. hits fwy every time rather than trying to hit it straight. now have a measure of how many times I hit this fwy.

 

Now i hit my normal draw on other holes and have a define plan for my trouble holes..

 

we also worked out that If I have more than 175 m in to flag on par 4(and I have a shot on hole) then if lay up with a 5 or 6 iron and hit a 30 -50 m pitch will get more pars or worst 5 for 2 points, thus eliminating double or wipes from card.

 

we identified 2 holes where this was to be strategy, so my second shot is now a nice draw up right side with 5 iron shot of fwy bunker.

 

So my coach has analysed my game, taught me with lessons to hit shots and improve my swing based around what I need to do to score better on holes I play.

 

That is the benefit of having a playing lesson with coach.

 

i can also use my lesson skills learnt under competition conditions.

Thanks CanBreak80 and Kiwi.

 

I think an on course lesson could be what I actually need.

Cheers.

Pants, do I read this that you've never played comp before. Your package of lessons should be complimentary to entering regular comp where you will be able to replicate what has been taught under some pressure. I wouldn't be too concerned about waiting too long, throw yourself in whist getting some good tuition

Hi wasabi. I've played in small open comps but I have one coming up that I really wanted to do well in. But I am very new to competition golf.

I was only nervous about the first comp I played in, after that it was a peice of cake and I love it.

The more comp games you play, the better your game gets

Good onya mate, nice to have a goal, as I say to capitalise on lessons it's ideal to play reg club comp
