Free Lesson Month by the PGA of America

RSS

May is the PGA of America’s Free Lesson Month. Participating facilities in the U.S. are giving new golfers the chance to try the game and experienced golfers the chance to improve their game with a free 10-minute lesson from the nation’s best teachers – PGA and LPGA professionals. In addition to providing an opportunity for free individual instruction, many facilities have also added free family golf clinics, allowing families the opportunity to discover and get involved in the game together.
 
'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.
