Golf Lesson Gone Wrong


Golf is a social sport, and we think it’s fun to share golf experiences; the good, the bad, and the ugly. Partnering with our friends at gottaGolf (The Ball Tracer & Social Golf App), SxS is proud to bring you “Golf Fails brought to you by gottaGolf,” a weekly reminder that golf is… really hard.

The journey to playing better golf forges different routes for different people. Some people like to figure it out on their own, whether that means spending hours on the range or playing hundreds of rounds of golf per year. The vast majority of novice golfers follow a similar path, however, and that begins with a lesson.

Having a teaching pro explain what’s good and bad in your swing can often result in rapid improvement. That is, only if the teaching pro is around for the entire lesson to help out the student, which doesn’t seem high on this instructor’s priority list as he demonstrates a good angle of attack and then makes no effort to get out of the way of the ensuing swing.

He may have had enough or simply thought the student was going to take a practice swing to mimic his impact position; either way, it ended poorly for him and left him with what was sure to be a nasty bruise on his shin.
