In what could be the underdog story of the year, I successfully convinced my fiancee that "borrowing" $200 from the wedding fund to attend a green reading class on her birthday was a good idea.
So now I've got a few questions. I know there are a few instructors on here, and I would also guess that there are some people who may have taken a class. Strangely enough, I haven't been able to find any posts here that really address the value of this instruction. Even on google, i basically end up finding websites and forum posts by instructors, which is helpful, but I'd also like to see some perspective from students.
So here are a couple questions/concerns
1. Am I going to walk out of the Level 1 class with enough new information to really make a difference (assume i put in the time to practice and yada yada), or I am going to have to sign up for Level 2 to really get a significant benefit?
2. Is this a system where you have to pre-map out each green, with highs, lows, slopes, fall lines etc.? If so, is this something that you can do during a typical weekend round without pissing off everyone else, or would i have to sneak out there at night or on a rainy day? Also, if pre-mapping is the key, does that mean that there is little benefit when playing a new course?
3. Is this going to be like reading a Dave Pelz book, where I walk away convinced that my life could be changed for the better if only I bought 85 Pelzgolf gadgets that cost $50-100 each? You can't even find a truth board anywhere!
4. Any success stories from people who have attended these classes?
I think that's about it. Thanks in advance for any advice!
