There are just certain people that are more fun to teach
and work with than others. Most golf instructors are
proud of what they do and take their jobs seriously.
The "professional" certification is a designation

Golf clients come in all ages, shapes
and sizes, and all kinds of temperaments. They also
come to you with very different learning strategies.

how many points should comprise the lesson for best
To put it simply, identifying the
complexities of what fun and pace means to a client
is the beginning of identifying whether a client is
a Challenger, Social, Traditional or Technical golfer.
That insight is the key to improving your relationships
and your clients' golf performance and enjoyment of
