Where are the Bruce Lee's of Golf?
Bruce Lee was not only a great, passionate teacher of Kung
Fu, he was also his best student. Bruce didn't just tell his students how
to punch, he demonstrated at full speed with perfect form. How many golf instructors
are like Bruce Lee when it comes to teaching the golf swing? You wouldn't
learn Kung Fu from someone who couldn't punch, why would you learn golf from
someone who can't swing?
Apparently, golf is the only sport where being capable of doing what you teach
is not a prerequisite for being considered an expert. Oddly enough, golf has
more glorified so-called experts than most any other sport. You see and hear
them every week on TV and in magazines, telling you another tip on how to
improve your game, yet very few of these guys can break 80 two days in a row.
Shouldn't a teacher's merit be measured on both how well he can perform as
well as well he can teach? Or is the old saying true, "Those that can,
do, and those that can't, teach." I think the most entertaining golf
tournament of the year would be one that pitted golf instructors against each
other in a four day event. The golfing world would be shocked to realize that
the teachers they are paying thousands of dollars to each year have swings
that don't look much better than theirs do and shoot about the same scores
they do, or worse.
