Golf Is Not A Game Of Perfect by Dr. Bob Rotella.
It has nothing to do about hitting, stance, or putting, but the mental aspect of the game. I read it when I was 13 and blew my mind.
14 bones on amazon link to it as well.
It's very difficult to get around it.
You have to stay very focused on a goal. For me, since ROM7, it's been to finish every match I play. Has that happened? No, but I understand the situations it has not and I'm very pleased with how things have been going.
It also helps if you read autobiographies or books on sports psychology (or psychology in general) to get ideas & techniques on how to better your mentality.
Here are some that have helped me immensely.
Yes, it would be a good idea to bring your own clubs. This way, the instructor can see how your clubs fit and if you need to adjust shaft length and such.
When I took swing lessons, I took them once or twice a week for a couple months. But they were really only 15-30min at a time.
If you want to really get series, plan on taking more than one lesson. Normally, the instructor will watch you hit a few balls and then make one small correction that you need to practice doing. The next lesson, he will do the same thing but change another aspect. And so the cycle repeats. You WILL need to practice ON YOUR OWN though, its what helps the most.
One final thing: expect to struggle. Revamping your swing takes time and the changes can feel unnatural at times. Just keep sticking with it and practicing how you are taught. Eventually things will click and you will be playing better. I went through this my senior year of HS golf and at the end, I was playing the best golf I ever had.
One last thing. Golf Is Not A Game Of Perfect by Dr. Bob Rotella is a great bit of info for the mental aspect of the game that you may want to check out.
Read "Golf is not a Game of Perfect" (http://www.amazon.com/Golf-Is-Not-Game-Perfect/dp/0743508092). One of my favorite books about the mental side of the game. Rotella has worked with a lot of pros (Tom Kite, Davis Love III, etc.) and his book is great.
I listened to an abridged version of "Golf is not a game of perfect" by Dr. Rotella. It really helped my game.
Bought this for my 15 year old daughter. This book by far helped her the most with the "mental" game.
From the book:
" On the first tee, a golfer must expect only two things of himself: to have fun, and to focus his mind properly on every shot"
"It is more important to be decisive than to be correct when preparing to play any golf shot or putt.
Hm, in the last months a lot of early posts in crypto threads immediately get's -2 or -3 downvotes. here, ethtrader, cryptomarkets and so on. Now I have 7 upvotes at least.
Yes, bank roll management too is important. you can still be part of the moves but size down 50% each trade to manage risk
Another interesting thing is I learned about golf psychology which is apparently quite similar, like this book I will order soon https://www.amazon.de/Golf-Not-Game-Perfect-Rotella/dp/0743508092

Read this book immediately:
The best book on the mental game in my opinion is Golf Is Not A Game of Perfect by Bob Rotella.
Edit: Amazon link
Please read the book Golf is not a Game of Perfect by Bob Rotella. It has been recommended here many times before, and I found it very helpful.
Dr. Rotella helps pro golfers overcome the issues you're facing.
Golf is not a game of perfect. Regardless of your skill or your technique, this book will help you have a better approach to the game. I think books that teach specific swing/shot styles can be bad since one size does not fit all.
Someone gave me this book, and it was such a useful resource for sports psychology that I want to share it with you.
