With an extensive background in golf, art, music, dance, home building, bodybuilding, and other endeavors too numerous to mention….I can tell you “THIS”. THIS is THAT the high profile golf instructors with the straight whitened teeth, fine threads, “saloon tans” and other amenities that appeal to the plastic masses, are Nev…rrr fine golf instructors.
I have read just enough, thank God, golf instruction articles from the top 100 instructors to categorically state that their advice is a giant leap back for mankind. The human machine can NOT benefit from their idiotic approach! Yet, they are recognized not because of teaching prowess but because of marketing prowess.
There are fabulous musicians in Nashville that are prolific song writers, musicians, with incredible voices and stage presence that you will never hear of. Why, because they have no marketing agenda. On the other hand..there are those untalented soles who can’t carry a tune in an ash bucket who are household names because of they understand that marketing is “where ITS at”
The best golf instructors are not found in the bogus top 100 or on the cover of a golf magazine or some golf channel. The top tournament players almost without exception make lousy instructors. Ben Hogan, the player, was one of the best who ever lived. Ben Hogan the author ruined more golfers than the San Francisco Earthquake. A high percentage of the most recognized names in golf instruction are con artists and are largely responsible for the dramatic rise in the popularity of psychiatry.
Fewer than 1/10th of 1% of golf instructors have the foggiest notion on how to improve their students games. Successful golf instruction is an art form. Yet, the man on the street assumes that ALL golf instruction is the same. AND that any country club pro, PGA pro or any instructors advice will be worth the bucks. Have you seen their swings or their students swings?
Consensus of opinion from golfers world wide validates that the very BEST golf instructor just might be some reclusive banjo player living in a log cabin in the hills of Tennessee and teaching his students via DVDs he and his wife cooked up!
