When you see the doctor because you are not feeling well, his job is to diagnose the problem based on the symptoms and test to confirm the diagnosis. Chances are you will be given a prescription to fill and maybe even a sample to start you on the road to wellness. From there you need to go and fill the prescription and actually take the pills if you want to get better. As a Golf Instructor my role is to diagnose the problems in your golf swing and give you the prescription for the cure which may involve some changes and probably some specific drills to help inspire the change. We may even over the course of a lesson sample the prescription and find some relief to our swing illnesses and show signs of getting better but to truly cure the swing illness you have got to take the pills! You have to PRACTICE! The secret to better golf is really no secret at all… if you want to get better you have to PRACTICE!
