The answer to the question of whether good instruction or the newest equipment will improve your golf game the most, depends on each golfer’s personal experience and current skilllevel. An instructor like myself, who does not have a golf equipment retail business, will be tempted to answer that good instruction is more important. A golf retailer with no lesson income would likely say new equipment would help more. And your answer may depend on where you are in your golf learning curve.
