I have always tried to work in on course lessons with all of my students. This past year I offered 9 and 18 hole playing lessons and did more thanks to the pandemic. Over the years, playing lessons have really helped my students understand the why on how to play a golf hole. The when to take a driver or other club off the tee and the wow. The wow is the way their score comes down when they understand why you hit certain shots to areas of the fairway or green.
Standing on the lesson tee is great but when you can put all of the teachings to good use on the course it just makes for better playing students. Better students will play more and have much more fun!!
