What clubs do I need to buy? ​The

regulations stipulate that a set of clubs cannot exceed 14 clubs. To learn golf, of course you need to buy a set of clubs. But you don’t necessarily need to buy 14 clubs. But a set of irons is another Adding wood and putting are indispensable. In the process of learning, we will teach the skills of using different types of clubs.​A
set
 of basic clubs includes Driver (1 wood), Fairway Wood (fairway wood) ), Iron (iron), Putter (putter). And Hybrid (hybrid) is also indispensable in the bag.
Most golf equipment manufacturers have sets for beginners, complete sets of clubs and bags. , fully equipped. Beginners only need to express their interest to the salesperson who sells golf equipment,

I hope to buy a set of clubs for beginners. I believe that under the recommendation of the salesperson, I can buy suitable 
clubs .

The more common one is 10.5 degrees. 9.5 degrees. Ladies also use 12.5 degrees. ​Iron (Iron) .
Beginners to buy iron club head (Club Hand) belongs to Cavity Back ( socket) iron. It is more suitable. From Iron #5 or #6 to #9 plus P (5 or 6 to 9) No. 3, 4, and 5 Hybrid.

​How to choose a golf coach?

In North America, there are two types of golf coaches. One is a member of the Professional Golf’s Association of Canada, referred to as CPGA. Member of Canadian Golf Coaches Association).
About CGTF. I have a special introduction in CGTF Canadian Golf Coaches Association . You can read it at any time.
About CPGA. Here is a brief introduction: To become a CPGA member. It takes about 3 years to apply Relevant courses. Mainly to learn the management and operation of golf courses. Golf teaching is part of it. After completing the course, take the golf practical ability test. Play 2 rounds. The total score in 2 rounds cannot exceed 159. Simple It is said that a par-72 course must be played below 80 to qualify. To become a CPGA member. 
Time, 

money In terms of teaching, because the CPGA
membership fee is high. Is it worth the money? There is a long-standing debate. My opinion is, whether CGTF or CPGA . Each coach has his own unique teaching method. If you have 1 -2 years of golf experience. Or beginners want to become the second Tiger Wood in the future. It is more suitable to learn from CPGA. If beginners just want to participate in golf. Systematically learn various golf styles and postures.. Learn from CGTF More suitable. Why pay More?
A lot of people including me. There is a beautiful misunderstanding. Treat PGA members and PGA Tour players as equals. Basically, the two are very different . The members of the CPGA are very large. There are about 10 players in Canada who can play the PGA Tour.
According to Canadian law, lawyers, doctors and other professionals must have valid professional licenses to engage in related work. Because golf teaching does not have Relevant laws and regulations. In order to protect your own interests. When choosing a golf coach for payment, you must understand clearly and ask the coach to show relevant valid licenses

​How to choose a golf course?

Students who have never been exposed to golf come to the school to study. About 10% of the students have completed the 5 lessons of the beginner swing .

After accumulating experience, come to tutoring and further correct the swing.
About 80% of the students. That is, most of the students. You need to complete the complete introductory 9 lessons before you can consider playing off the court.
There are also about 10% of students. Need to complete 15 lessons. After completing 15 lessons. If it is still not ideal. I will give up teaching on the driving range. Method. I hope that students will make more progress.

For beginners, it is more appropriate to book a complete introductory 9 -course course. Then make a choice based on the learning progress. If you choose a course of 1 and 3 lessons, it is not suitable for beginners. Golf Sports. It is difficult to learn and difficult to master, but it attracts many people to learn. Every beginner student. The estimated tuition fee is between $300-$600 . It depends on the students’ comprehension ability.

Only then can you master the swing. If the conditions are right, it is best to come back and learn within half a year to one year after the initial play. 3 more lessons. Make your swing more proficient. Make progress faster .
