I've taken four lessons from three different instructors this year.
The first used video but was indoors which I wasn't a fan of because I wanted to see what the ball did. Plus, I went into the store one day and ran into him and asked him a question about what we had discussed during my lesson and I felt like he was just pushing me into another lesson. I can understand an instructor not wanting to give away information for free, but I like to build a rapport with someone and am more willing to keep working with them if I feel like they're not just after my money.
The second guy I took two lessons from, the first time he helped me with my grip, said not to use a baseball grip. The second time I went to him I asked him to help me with my slice on my driver and he said to keep doing what I had been doing. Felt like I paid him for nothing and, tbh, I had been slicing all season up to that point, so something had to be changed.
The third one I've taken one lesson from and focused more on my stance and grip. He seems nice enough, but I don't really feel a connection with him. Might be dumb, but I think I want that in an instructor.
I think once next season starts, I'm going to see about getting lessons from a friend who is a PGA instructor who uses flightscope outdoors and can record me so I can get a better idea.
