PGA Free Lesson Month, held each May at participating facilities nationwide, gives new golfers the chance to try the game and experienced golfers the chance to improve theirs. Courses will offer free 10-minute lessons and/or family clinics designed to help golfers improve their game.
"I would encourage people to come out because I know that golfers have questions about their golf swings that they aren't quite sure of," said Rick Murphy, PGA Professional at the Rick Murphy Golf Academy in Greensboro, N.C. "When they sign up for the lesson and actually ask the question and get an answer, then that opens the door to many other questions about their game or swing that they may not have ever thought of -- hence the learning process begins."
A question many potential students might ask is: How much, exactly, can one take away from a 10-minute lesson? The answer is: It depends, but isn't it worth your time to find out?
"It very well could be a chance for the student to be able to identify a 'wobble' in his or her swing with the help of a PGA Professional," Murphy said. "And that could lead to a path for correction. It may be something as simple as an interview process that students could use during the 10 minutes to decide if they would like to work with the professional."
