'PGA Free Lesson Month has been one of our most successful programs because it gives both new and existing golfers a reason to pick up their clubs,' said PGA of America president Allen Wronowski. 'It is also an opportunity for PGA and LPGA Professionals to showcase their skills in helping golfers of all levels and ages improve their game and have fun.'
PGA and LPGA professionals have the ability to work with both novice and avid golfers. A 10-minute lesson can give beginners the opportunity to learn basic skills, such as how to establish a correct stance, the best way to hold a club and a proper swing and follow through. More experienced golfers can use their 10 minutes to discover the secret to reading breaking putts, learn how to change their grip to cure a slice and practice drawing the ball for more distance.
Since PGA Free Lesson Month was introduced in 1998, more than 1.2 million free lessons have been given. In 2010, more than 4,754 PGA/LPGA professionals nationwide gave 73,750 lessons during PGA Free Lesson Month, resulting in amore than $3.2 million impact to the golf industry.
