In the spirit of today being National Instruction Day, we pitched the following question to our nearly 350,000 friends in PGA.com Facebook Nation: What's the best advice you've ever received from a PGA Professional?
As is usually the case, you didn't disappoint with your wide-ranging answers, some that made us laugh and some that made us say, "hey, I should try that."
Here's a collection of our favorite answers from you. You can click here to join the conversation.
Chuck Backer: The 10 step rule - when you hit a BAD shot - you get to walk 10 steps while swearing at yourself -- AFTER those 10 steps -- You're done being upset. Forget about it and move on to the next shot.
Richard Browne: Leave the Index Finger of the Right Hand out of your swing... Even suggested having it amputated. But that was just a suggestion not an instruction. IT WORKS.
Conor Dondale: Open up your front foot to promote better hip movement and weight transfer.
Damien Ross: Practice everything from 100 yards and in because that's where scoring 90 percent of the time happens.
Dan Sanders: Play your game, don't play anyone else's game.
Joe Jensen: Understanding the proper grip!
Peter Rivas: Maybe try bowling.
Don Gosselin: The great Dana Quigley told me "don't be afraid to go low."
Wayne Garrison: To turn the body and just let arms drop in the downswing.
James Anisko: Keeping that right shoulder back on the downswing. Thanks Billy Ore of PGA Village, Port St. Lucie, Fla.
Wayne Jury: Don't graze over each shot. Deliver the shot in less than 12 seconds.
Sam Nord: Picture your shot before addressing. Have an idea of what the flight should look like.
Timmy Harmon: Move up one set of tees.
