Golf instructions advice…?

Question by lovefriction: Golf instructions advice…?

This is a two part question. I would like to get some golf lesson(s) specifically on hitting the driver. I can hit the irons and hybrids well enough to enjoy the game, but my driver is so erratic that I usually never hit with it.

How many lessons do you think I would need to take? Most places offer a single lesson or a three session package.

Secondly, where should I go? I like the idea of seeing a video replay at Golf Galaxy. But I don’t like the idea of hitting into a net. So should I go to Golf Galaxy for lessons or to a local golf course pro.

Any other advice on selecting instructors is most welcome.
