Forum members, I need your help! My buddy's younger brother is a sophomore in high school, and wants to go out for the golf team. His golf experience is pretty limited, and my buddy asked if I might be able to help him out a bit with some "lessons". To be clear, I have absolutely nothing even close to qualifications to be giving lessons. I feel like I have a decent golf knowledge compared to the average golfer, but nothing even close to a teaching pro. I made sure my buddy is aware of this, but his family is hoping I can just get him in the right direction before they decide to invest in some lessons from someone who actually knows what they're doing. So, my question for you all (particularly those of you with some coaching experience), is what recommendations do you have in helping out a relatively green golfer? Any good drills or things to especially have an eye out for? Focus more on swing techniques, or work with managing his ball flight/course management? Short game vs long game? Any thoughts or recommendations anyone has would be much appreciated!

Hey everyone it's been a while, since I was last on, a lot has happened. I got professionally fitted for a set of irons for the first time, I shot My low round of 38, I went to a stay away golf camp in Richmond, I had my first eagle during tryouts, and made it to number seven on my high school's golf team. Finally, I became a senior in high school, and with that came a dilemma: What am I going to do after high school? I have thought about doing something in medicine since I was four and this year, whilst taking two medical classes, came up with the idea of maybe pursuing physical therapy. But since going to the stay away golf camp over the summer where a bunch of PGM students were interning, I also began messing around with the idea that I could maybe do PGM and become a PGA Professional. This idea was furthered when my best friend from the golf team announced that he would be attending Methodist University as part of their PGM program. This made me think about what the pros and cons of each would be, and this is what I came up with: PRO: Being a golf pro would allow me to further pursue my love of golf and being at a golf course. PRO: I would be able to work with kids, as well as teach people the game I love. CON: Mediocre to lousy starting pay, as well as annoying hours. CON: Would have to start out as an assistant pro somewhere, and that does not easily lend itself to golfing on my own during the week. PRO: Latest equipment from manufacturer. PRO: Less schooling to become a PGA pro. PRO: Physical therapist starting salary is around 80k. PRO: I'd probably be happier as a PGA pro. PRO: I'd get to travel with the PGA. Let me know what you guys and gals think, cause I could really use some outside opinions.
