Have you had lessons, or are you self-taught?

Have you ever paid for lessons from a qualified teacher?

I've 'kinda' had lessons... I took a class when I was in college, that met for 50 minutes twice a week, but there was like 25 of us so there was no real personal attention. Sometimes the teacher would walk around the group as we were pitching to the practice green and give people a quick tip on what they were doing wrong, but never really worked with them on it.

She didn't spend much time on me at all, because compared to the other people, I at least had a consistent swing and could hit the ball without skulling it 100% of the time.

I did get the fundamentals though, but the rest of my form *cough* is self-taught. :D

I actually just paid for my first lesson. I couldn't take the bad play anymore.
It was well worth the money for me cause I had a few flaws that he has me working on.:)
