    Some of us are more a visual learner than the others whom are better learning thingsthrough doing it ( tactile ).
    Hope you'll improve on your golf game, soon . Shouldn't be too difficult since you have the speed. Just put the muscle where it's needed with good timing.

    $175/hr unless you get a package. I became sick of closer and cheaper pros not being able to match my schedule.

    Thanks. I learned from the golftec analysis that i am swinging too over the top (knee that part), but making a unconscious big correction right before contact. That has allowed me to hit my irons decently but then magnifies itself significantly with my driver swing, where i am unable to make the last moment correction.

    I actually haven't tried hitting a driver yet, either during or after the lesson. Working on improving my swing with short irons first. I have the same swing issue with my irons, just that the result is not as magnified as with the driver.

    I haven't taken lessons but I've seen rates quoted at $60-100 for 1/2 hour with some discount for full hour and multi lesson packages.

    Pay 150 an hour for my son but he goes about once every other month. Anything over that and it's just repeating the same thing because no time has really been spent to make the adjustments. That being said, my son has learned more from watching Monte's videos, Drive For Dough, etc, than anything else.

    After my golftec lesson, my driver swing continued to be terrible, wasn't able to break my old habits. However, what has really helped me out since is the Orange Whip. I knew I was swinging too over the top and cutting across the ball with my driver, but the Orange Whip made me really feel that in an exaggerated way. I was then able to use the Orange Whip to feel how I wanted my swing to be, and now I am hitting my driver better.

    One of my best lessons cost me a $14 patty melt.
    I know a guy who still charges $50/hr and knows TONS about the swing. I also know a guy who charges $200 and just parrots whatever's trending. I don't think that price is a good gauge for expertise.

    In central NJ area - $100 for a guy who taught out of a public driving range with mats. No video really of any kind, just taught some basic stuff. Did a playing lesson with him once... $250 and he was cool, played the whole course with me. Not even sure if he was PGA pro or not, but he got me playing golf and learning basics.

    Other guy I go to now, who does some more advanced stuff, lots of video capture, etc at a private course with ProV1's and real grass is $175/hr.

    I only took one set of lessons back over twenty-five years when learning the game so can't say what amounts are reasonable today. What I will say though the cost of lessons varies depending on the "actual" skill level of the instructor and the surrounding area. Some instructors negotiate. Just because an instructor thinks he/she is worth a certain amount over others in the area, doesn't necessarily mean he/she is.

    I used to go to Mark Russo at nighthawk for awhile, took some lessons from Damon Lucas who splits time between lake presidential and turf valley. Did 4 lessons with Jim Estes. The last 2 I’ve used are Cathy Kim at 1757 and Trillium Rose at Woodmont

    $50.00 a lesson online with one of the best instructors in the country! I'm convinced it's the best deal in golf.

    I hesitate to say since it will just slow my lessons down. ;-) But Dan deserves the business: Dan Carraher

    I'm paying $1200 for a set of 10 lessons (must use them all within a year) with a Golf Digest top 25 instructor. I'm 4 lessons in and, so far, it's been money well spent.

    Edit: I just realized that I forgot to say that my lessons are 1 hour each.

    My guy is $100 per hour. Money well spent as I dedicated this year to fix a few things that I've been putting off fixing for too long. Often times I know the issue and he confirms it, then we discuss the fix. Hitting it the best I ever have.......... downside is I didn't buy a new driver this year.
