Ok, so Saturday had my first ever golf lesson. Pretty much thought I was on the right track with my swing, just needing something to help with making the direction more consistent. After my 30 minute lesson I was told basically only my grip was right.
Played a round of golf yesterday.... It was like I started golf all over again, couldn't hit a drive for anything. Only 2 things that I was able to do semi well was hit my aw *130 yd club* and putt. I had 4 pars on the front all because I was able to hit the green with my 2nd/3rd shot from 130 pretty much every time. After the 7th hole I was lucky to get a look at par let alone bogey.... Never been more disappointed in my life. Up until the lesson I had made steady progress getting more consistent and playing better each week/round basically.
So, here's the real question. Is it a general rule that your game will go to utter crap once you start taking lessons then come back as you are able to apply all the ideas/fixes presented or is this a case of the instructor telling me too much at once. I felt like I had so many things I had to think about doing differently that I couldn't just swing the club. I had set up another lesson while I was there Saturday, but I'm really thinking about cancelling it after yesterday's round.
