i know your question was to scott
but i think everyone from someone who never played (especially for them ) to a pro can benefit with lessons.
look at the coach from the usa mosconi cup requiring the players to go to boot camp with him..there is an example of the best players still getting instruction

At any level a player can benefit from lessons, the player just has to be open minded to get the most out of the experience.

My thought is this you can take a lesson and stream line the learning and get yourself to your highest potential in a reasonable time or you can muddle you way through it and take years to possibly get there.

New players taking a lesson right from the beginning will be better off because they wont have any bad habits to break. They will have the ability to build a solid foundation of their stance, stroke and Pre-Shot Routine in a shorter period of time and this helps greatly when working on the Skills needed to play the game at a high level.
