Arizona Beginner Golf Lessons

Technorati Profile

Have you ever given a golf tip to a fellow golfer (stranger) on the driving range that was a beginner? I bet you felt good about helping a fellow golf brother or golf sister, right? I am very fortunate to help people with golf and to do this for a living is a blessing. I am very thankful for all the help I got from my father, mother, golf professionals, my students, and my wife.

The game of golf has provided me a profession of a lifetime. I enjoy assisting people of all abilities. But the real satisfaction is watching a beginner golfer send their first ball in the air. There are times that I am more excited about what my student has just accomplished then they are.

At one time we seasoned golfers were beginners too. I remember my first drive that I hit right on the screws! I mean that literally – my golf club (real wood) at that time circa 1980 did have screws right on the club face. I must have been about 9 years old.

The best part of being a beginner golfer is no expectations of performance. You can always say to yourself, “I am a beginner golfer and I am just learning how to play golf.” We all have stories from our humble beginnings. Do you remember your first round of golf? What about the many times you tried to hit the guy driving the golf ball picker-upper on the driving range? And what about the time when you were a kid and you got to drive the golf cart for the first time. Well, I sure we can recall all the good memories from our golfing past.

If you are beginner golfer or you know a new golfer that would like to learn how to play golf, call Arizona Golf Lessons today. Rob Camacho, Arizona Golf Instructor teaches and coaches men and women beginner golfers at Rio Salado Golf Course in Tempe, Arizona. The Arizona golf lessons and golf instruction is available seven days a week. For more information on all golf programs, call and speak with Rob Camacho directly. Mr. Camacho offers golf lessons from beginner to the advanced player in the Phoenix metro area.

Did you ever think about taking a two hour golf lesson?

There are not many teaching professionals offering two hour lessons for non touring professionals. And I mean two hours per one session. Why is that? Perhaps the cost would scare golfers away – maybe. Perhaps fatigue will be a factor for the student – maybe. For some, the two hour golf lesson/coaching session might be best.

Here are ten reasons why:

1. Two hours is plenty of time for student and teacher to learn from each other.

2. Drills, drills, drills, can be enforced within two hours

3. Full swing and short game can be covered

4. Relationship building, trust, student confidence in his/her performance

5. The student interview is the key to helping every golfer

6. No hurry to rush

7. Driving range time and on the course instruction can take place

8. Educating the student

9. A golf lesson in two hours may lead to a major breakthrough in learning yielding better results

10. Time – some golfers just can’t commit to a series of lessons for some reason or another and two hours would be the best investment

If you would like to book a two hour golf lesson, call Arizona Golf Lessons by Rob Camacho at (602) 828-GOLF. The Arizona Golf Lessons can cover full swing, putting, chipping, bunker shots, trouble shots, and on course golf play management. If you are need of help with your golf game and just do not have the time you now have a new option. The two hour golf lesson(s) in Tempe, Arizona are held at Rio Salado Golf Course. Please note that all golfers from Mesa, Scottsdale, Gilbert, Phoenix, and Ahwatukee, Arizona are always welcome.

Golf Clubs Create Golf Swings by Rob Camacho

The wrong golf club(s) can influence how you swing. For example: If you are playing a driver with a shaft that is to stiff – you will swing harder to make the golf club work and most likely your golf-ball-flight will be right of target. Also, your balance will favor your back foot because you cannot flex the shaft on your forward-swing in the attempt to “square-the-club-face.”

Here is a list of what players may do to make the golf club work with a golf shaft too stiff:

1. Player may aim left to “play” slice, fade, push, and push-slice
2. Player my change his/her grip (hand placement) to a closed-face-grip also known as a “strong-grip”
3. Player may close the club-face at address
4. Player may play the ball too far forward at address
5. Player may “roll-the-hands” prior to impact to close the club-face
6. Player may “over-swing” in the attempt to create power and golf-club-head-speed
7. Player may aim right of target to try to hook the ball

If you would like to know if you are playing with the right golf equipment, call Rob Camacho, Tempe Golf Teaching Professional and former Professional Golf Club Fitter for Zevo Golf. If you are interested in learning how you can play better golf and would like golf lessons in Tempe, call (602) 828-GOLF.

Private Golf Lessons or Group Lessons by Rob Camacho

For the beginner golfer you have a number of options on how to learn to play the game of golf. What is best for you? You may want to consider the fees for private or group. The group lessons may be best for the new golfer to learn with friends or make new friends. The cost will be less than private lessons. The private lessons will benefit the golfer because of 100% of the instructor’s time is with you. But how long should your lessons be? Should they be 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 60 minutes or a full day? It may depend on the recommendation from your instructor, or your stamina may play a role in your time with your golf pro. And of course it comes down to what you are comfortable paying. And what is the difference between one pro who charges $175 per hour versus the pro who charges only $50.00 per hour. Does that mean the more expensive lessons are better? For more information on private golf lessons or information on how to look for the right golf instructor for you, call and speak with Rob Camacho, Tempe Golf Teaching Professional. The private golf lessons are open to all golfers from Phoenix, Mesa, Ahwatukee, Chandler, Gilbert, Scottsdale, and Tempe, Arizona. And, out of state visitors are always welcome.

Distance – the long ball by Rob Camacho, Arizona Teaching Professional

The long drive is what all golfers strive to achieve. I want to hit 300 yard drives, but I know my limitations. Here is a list of factors that influence driving the golf ball far.

1. Physical strength
2. Flexibility – your body
3. eye-hand-coordination
4. Leverage (body, lever arm lever lengths)
5. Swing technique
6. Equipment
7. Golf ball
8. Swing speed
9. Ball-to-clubface-centered-contact
10. Angle of approach
11. Swing path
12. Clubface position
13. Wind
14. Elevation
15. Fairway conditions
16. Ball flight, trajectory, straight, hook, slice, pull, pull-hook, pull-slice, push, push-hook, push-slice
17. Relaxed muscles
18. Your mind

So, now the question is what do you do with the above list? And what does the list mean to you? While some of the above topics are obvious and some are not, the how-to-part is what is missing, right? You may know what you are suppose to do, but you may not know how to do it. The golf ball flight must be explained. The golf ball reacts to your golf-swing. What is the cause and effect?

For help understanding your golf-ball-flight, call Tempe Golf Lessons & Golf Instruction by Arizona Teaching Professional, Rob Camacho. Mr. Camacho can assess your ball flight for proper golf-swing corrections and/or adjustments. Please note that all golf training and golf development programs are conducted at Rio Salado Golf Course in Tempe just on the southern border of Scottsdale by Big Surf Water Park.

Driving Range Practice

I have been watching people practice (hit balls) on the driving range since 1990 – the year I knew that one day I would become a professional golf instructor. The driving range is where most golfers try the game for the first time. It is where you try to hit the ball over the back fence with the driver. It is the place when you are a kid you try to hit the guy driving the ball picker-upper. It is the place where you try to hit the one hundred your sign with your wedge. It is the place where you dream of being a great player. It is the place for some where you dream of making it on the PGA TOUR. And for some, the range is the place to practice the day before your first round of golf. I can go on and on here about the driving range and what it means for different folks.

The driving range for me is one of my favorite places to be. This is my lab, the place where I can create shots. The place where I can hit the low hook, the low fade, the long cut shot with the driver. And, the range is the place where I can play nine or 18 holes as preparation for my next round. This is the place to create good habits and good swing thoughts also known as “swing-keys.” The range also prepares me to be a better golf coach. If you or a loved one would like to learn to play better golf call Rob Camacho, Arizona Golf Instructor at (602) 828-GOLF. The lessons programs are customized to meet the goals of each student.

Tempe – Phoenix – Scottsdale Private Golf Lessons

In today’s golf world there are many choices one can make to learn how to play golf. You can learn from a friend, you parents, your siblings, books, magazines, videos, youtube, the golf channel, your friends, golf teachers, golf coaches, golf educators, and anyone who can be of help. But what is the best way to learn? There are golf schools, group lessons, community college golf classes, and of course on one-on-one golf instruction also known as the private golf lesson. The private golf lessons in my opinion is the best way to learn. Why? The obvious answer is the time spent is 100% on you. However, group golf instruction can be helpful. I limit my groups to no more than two golfers per hour session and no more than 4 golfers per golf school. The private golf lessons are 100% customized to meet the individual. For what is told to one student may not apply to another student.
