What should I look for in a golf instructor? I'm presently A 10 handicap and left handed.

Hey Vinny. There's a lot of instruction out there and, many "professionals" are horrible teachers. Interview teachers and learn their philosophy first. You will do best with an instructor that has a firm grip on the fundamentals and can also really help you with the short game (putting, chipping, pitching). Best of luck!

They come in all sizes and shapes. There are indoor instructors that use a lot of cameras to the kindly old gentleman outdoors with a stick to check when you move too much. Do you work off of mats or would you be stuck in the middle of a large trap until you can get 3 in a row out? At a 10 hcp you probably have a reasonable swing and may be looking for more pitch/chip help on course or at least oustide with a decent rough, trap, and a quick green. I've fired one, used an LPGA at a big box to get irons/woods/driver working. Ready to move onto an instructor for on the course for 100 yards and in. Fortunately, Jerry Kelly and Steve Stricker's coaching teams are available to the public.
