Golf is a game that can be played at many different levels, from recreational enjoyment to a competitive tournament level. As an instructor, I must recognize what level each student is at and where they would like to go with their game. A slight modification to a student's golf swing is often more beneficial than a complete overhaul. I feel that it is very important to explain in simple terms what the student is doing wrong, but much more important for them to understand what is right and how it can help improve their game.
