Pohl tried to help me shake a few of my first-timer jitters by saying that for most golfers, it’s just a matter of learning the basics, feeling comfortable, and lots of practice! Pohl was pleasantly surprised that I already had a good grip, which is always the first thing you learn, and my stance and posture weren’t bad either. Score. After going through some of those body alignment logistics, Pohl demonstrated both the proper position of where the club should be at each point in my swing, as well as what each part of my body should be doing. For example, when you finish your swing, your back foot should be completely pointing toward the target (your torso should be facing that way too), and all your weight should be on your front foot by this point. So be prepared, in a first lesson you will learn that there is way more involved in a golf swing, than you might think. No wonder those PGA players…or winners I should say, get paid so much!...
