Playing Golf With the Inexperienced Golfer Can Be Fun

Aug 22nd 2010 at 5:52 PM

me on the coursemy favorite group

I enjoy playing golf with inexperienced golfers. i often travel to new golf courses and when I call for a tee time I ask to be paired with another group so i don't have to play alone. I don't ask for any particular group with a certain handicap. i know my own play will not be as good as it would on my home course so I don't embarrass myself by saying i am good when I am not.

I have been very fortunate with the pairings, everyone seems to get along and I can usually add my banter without getting anyone angry. The thing I enjoy most is helping out the golfer who is struggling.

I am not a pro golfer, I have taught golf and was once a club pro for awhile, but my instruction is given only when I know the golfer will accept it. I try not to impose my methods on anyone, and I don't advise anyone to do so.

With that said, If you saw someone having difficulty doing a task that you were more than capable of doing would you help? Most people will and in golf it is the same thing. Inexperienced golfers need advice from those who have been playing and have gone through what they are going through.

What have you done to help another player? Advise them to change the grip they use, Maybe show them how to use the whole body in the swing? Have you explained how to line up a shot from the fairway or on the green? Maybe given instruction on how to chip to a spot on the green rather than to the hole.

Let me hear from you what you have done.
