Millions of golf instructional DVDs are sold every year, especially during the Holiday Season
Millions of golfers purchase golf instructional DVDs looking for that Holy Grail of the golf swing in their search of improvement and perfection.
I urge caution when it comes to attempting to learn the golf swing from a golf DVD. However, if this is your preferred method of instruction, I would like to suggest you consider something, and that is…when it comes to learning about motion, it is very difficult to learn on visual, static and auditory levels at the same time. This is exactly what golf instructional DVDs do, which ultimately serves to confuse and minimize their message.
Mixed, varied and often times inconsistent messages sum up why golf DVDs, while a good way to provide an overview of a particular swing method or theory, fall short on delivery of a quality message and often content when it comes to any type of effective instruction. While there is no substitute for hands on professional golf instruction, still, people seem to flock to golf DVDs for advice and wisdom when it comes to the golf swing. These ‘lessons on a disc’, generally wind up in a pile with similar golf DVDs collecting dust in a corner of your office or under the entertainment center in your den.
