    Yeah I understand what you guys are saying about clients. The challenge as you guys know if I am playing military golf and searching for my ball constantly. While my client is in the fairway I can see them getting frustrated. I feel the goal is to spend the most time with them to chat and build up a relationship.

    When it comes to my swing, yes I have to practice and be patient. As I am sure you guys can appreciate. You just want to get your swing down so you can hit straight and consistent majority of the time. Right now itís 20% is a good hit and 80% itís not a good shot for whatever reason, looking up, my swing path was off, my hands are not where they need to be on the club...etc. Itís just frustrating.

    Everybody is different but in general it takes a lot of time for improvements to be a) be realized on the course at all and b) consistently stay with you. I took weekly lessons for almost 3 off seasons (building a new swing as well) and it was always up and down though the downs are far less now.

    I don't know what it is but the expectations for golf lessons is just so sky high. 10 lessons + practice is nothing (no offense). I can't think of any other activity/skill/game where taking 10 lessons would make a meaningful lasting impact on your results. Think of all the time/money/blood/sweat you poured into your craft that puts food on the table. I'd probably bet you're probably not anywhere close to the best in that field either but you're decent, good enough to make a living, you can "put it on the fairway" pretty consistently in your field. Now, if someone asked you if you can show them over the course of 10 sessions how to do your job and expect anywhere near close the same results as you what would you think?

    In short, lower your expectations. You're probably on track and doing just fine. Just keep going at it.

    As far as client events, it's about the clients as Beta_Man suggested. If you're struggling just pick it up and ensure the clients are having a blast.

    Iíve been with golftec for over 1 year and Iím finally seeing progress but it is not easy. Itís very humbling getting your swing disected on video every lesson.

    Iíve played a ton of client golf. Itís not about the golf but just make sure your clients are looked after on and off the course. Some balls/hat/shirt/etc is always nice.

    Thanks, as I'm sure you can appreciate it's just frustrating because I'm in sales and I'm being asked to Golf more. With my swing all over the place currently, it's frustrating not to be able to play well, like I use to. Also, playing with clients who can golf I can tell it's frustrating them having to keep trying to find my ball, while they are in the fairway most of the time. I was able to hit fairly straight majority of the time before I started this round of lessons. I am not saying there bad just to be clear, I can see the issues I needed to fix and why. It's just frustrating it's not coming together faster and I'm not able to be consistent like before.

    I will take your advice and be patient, I think I need to write off this season and just decline golf games until I can get my swing in order.

    It sounds like your putting in plenty of practise time. With a major change, which it sounds like you made, it takes quite a bit of time to adapt fully. Usually there is a period where you play worse as you incorporate the changes. All I can say is make sure you are practising the correct techniques (and not reinforcing your old swing) and keep at it. Patience is key.

    GolfTec Lessons

    I see several people take lessons here at GolfTec. Iíve taken 10 lessons so far and Iíve had a lot to work on. We have had redesign my entire swing from my grip, my stance, back swing and follow through. It has been tough because what kind of worked me before on the golf course now doesnít. As I am learning my new swing Iím not consistent with it which is frustrating.

    With you guys who have taken GolfTec lessons how have you overcome the hurtle where you were learning your new swing to the point it all came together and you started hitting the ball consistently on the course?

    I ask because my drive is off, my irons Iím not hitting clean consistently. Chipping and pitching needs work and Iím disappointed.

    Thanks for your advice in advance.
