For all new golfers and beginners and even seasoned golfers, go to Youtube and watch practical lessons from MeandMYGolf..from these 2 superb English coaches Andy Proudman and Piers Ward.

The key for all you newbies is to get your golf swing and release correct..no point pounding hundreds of balls if you do not know your mistakes.

Me and Mygolf is good. Cool
But individual desire to golf better will never be a ending quest. Wink
Some bros will find other online/youtube coaches better. Laughing
But at least it's FREE.cheers

Without the fundamental knowledge on golf swing, I doubt many beginners can grasp the concept of what these YouTube pros taught online ...

Advice to golf newbies is to take few more lessons, 1-1 if possible.  The golf techniques and fundamental mechanics vary.  So, get the right concept on the track first.  don't just pounding balls at the range.  it is easy to learn how to hit balls, but it is even harder to learn how to hit it the right way (if you need to unwind your muscle memory later).  It can be hell or disaster.

Youtube is only good if you know what you are doing, what you need and what suits you.  If not, TW does not need a coach for hours and hours training/coaching/feedback.

Stance and Address varies from 1 person to another and already difficult to follow Youtube let alone the swing. Its best is with coach. Anyway my humble opinion. Smile

Agree, I improved way faster via a coach than just referring from youtube. Ranges at bb too
