Hey Everyone!!

I am looking into take lessons for this awesome sport, but do not really know where to go or what to look for when I am choosing where to take my golf lessons.  I live in Langhorne, PA and was wondering if any one from the Philly/Bucks County area could help a brother out on where to look.

The only two places that I know that offer lessons are Snipes Farm with Golf Professionals Ed McClure, Mike Moser & Jason Krier or Golf Galaxy in Langhorne.  I like that Golf Galaxy has the cameras and all the computer stuff, but I like that Snipes has an actual driving range and pitch and putt course to practice on. I just do not know how well the lessons are that you get from Golf Galaxy.

Any options would be a huge help.

Thanks,

Steven

As a teaching professional;

Any lessons will be helpful. Golf Galaxy is great. They do not just take fly-by-night instructors. The fact that they use video, and such is the best. I also you video in ALL my lessons. I honestly do not think you can teach golf without it. You need visual feedback.

Most important make sure you and the instructor 'click' !

Alternatively if you feel like taking a drive down to the Jersey Shore, I could fit you in. ;) hehe.

You off on the Right Foot with the Game Taking Lessons is a must if you want to become a Zero Handicap Man, and who don't? It also helps to play with a friend that is a good golfer as you are learning the ins and outs of the game. Practice putting, and chipping day and night and your game will come together quicker. Regardless of what you are told, or is said to you about golf and your ability to play the game as you start "Stay with the Game". Good Luck.

I'll be keeping a close eye on this thread for my next Philly business trip. I did debate about the trek to Erie to see Erik or David but I think it'll be a bit hardcore when I won't be driving over there. Steve Sieracki perhaps?

We'd recommend Steve. He spent time with us in Erie before opening his own place out there at Burlington.

I took a few at the Devon golf galaxy from Leigh Taylor who is a master pro and really good instructor I thought.   I have another one scheduled for the end of this month.

That would be a bit out of the way for you probably though, not sure who the instructor at the Langhorne store is.

    • Lol. Well if you don’t want to reach your potential then you’re exactly right. So If by realistic you mean what you’re willing to work on, then yes. And I’m not knocking that at all. I personally have never taken up a sport with the goal to be as mediocre as possible but I’ve known those who are happy to just play regardless of how they do. 
    • Greetings, I thought I'd circle back on this topic and let everyone know that I've decided to stick with my current coach.  My current coach has really taken me a long way. Not only that, but I think it's "easier" (is that the right word) to stick with one voice. I hit the ball brilliantly on the range the last couple weeks before getting injured, but it didn't translate to the course (actually quite the opposite). I think some of that was due to me being kind of stuck between the two worlds. While injured I've been diving into my video and my swing was never better that it was while under his instruction. So, back to it.  Since I've been injured I haven't had a chance to work on much of anything new. However, he and I are putting together my plan for the next 6 months. We will use all my data including Arccos, as well as launch data from Trackman. Going to analyze weaknesses, firm up strengths and get to the plan. It should be a fun off season.  Thanks to all who responded to this thread.  One more thing: Really looking forward to getting back to the SuperSpeed training. 
    • Give it another 3-5 years and I might feel the same. Some tech within that umbrella is ready to go out and be a commercial success, but I've done enough work with some of the latest and greatest for machine learning algorithms to know I don't want it touching anything critical safety related just yet. Computer vision is something that many people have a pretty good handle on and there's fresh data coming in often enough that 1-3 missed detections aren't going to cause any noticeable affects. Machine learning is quite a bit more difficult and most practical applications using it are currently "stuck" in that 80-90% of the way there phase that's good enough to show real promise but not good enough to release to the public. Funny enough it's a lot easier to teach an AI to play a video game than it is to teach them to do something like control a temperature. It wasn't all that far off it turns out, the real number was 0.00029 compared to my estimate of 0.00039. The reason I said 3 trips per registered car on average is because while there are a lot of cars that sit (multiple cars for one driver, or the driver isn't using it that day) there are also plenty of cars that are moving all day possibly with multiple different drivers. Figured it probably averaged out somewhere in that 3-4 trips per car range and it looks like that's correct (since 4 trips per car would give a probability of 0.00028. 4 trips per car per day would've been the best guess it seems.
    • I will accept "easier" for many but for me both more realistic & easier!  + Why make things more difficult than they need be? 
    • This is a bad calculation because many people have more than 1 vehicle. For me, I have 3, two motorcycles and a car, and I don't think I have ever taken all 3 out in the same day, let alone 3 times each. A better metric would be 3x licensed drivers.
