We caught up with Tim Conaway, he is the Lead Instructor at the Conaway Golf Academy in Florida, to get his advice on finding an instructor for the first time or finding a new instructor. Whether your new to the game or a savvy veteran, knowing the in’s and out’s of finding a new instructor can be rough seas. We sit down with Tim to get his thoughts on what you should expect, look for and what the typical first lesson will look like!
What is the Academy?
Tim explained that the academy is gearing up for their winter season, which is the busiest time of the year. The weather stays in the 70’s so everyone is heading there to play and take lessons. The care for their guests is the most important thing and comes into play when they bring in instructors.
Tim has been around the game for a long time and when asked what is one common mistake or consistent mistake he sees amateurs do when they first get to an instructor like himself, he said, “It’s how they show up to the golf ball.” When they have proper posture, Tim said, “It makes a massive improvement in their ability to swing the club efficiently.”
