Anyone Can Learn Golf With These Great Tips

TIP! Walk and don’t rent a golf cart. This only adds to the amount of calories you burn, and will leave you feeling great by the end of the round.

Golf is a fun way to get exercise, relax, and be social. Having fun with golf is as easy as stepping on the green and playing! Continue reading for some tips to help you perfect your game and play better.

TIP! If you are shopping for a new set of clubs, it may be helpful to consult a more experienced golfer or pro shop employee. They can help you find the club that best suits you and will know about the newest available clubs.

Learning to use your body as part of your golfing strategy can produce marked improvements in your score. You have to use your body as a source of power, not just your arms. Involve your body when you move the club instead of using only your arms. This not only increases the distance that you can hit the ball, but also makes it so you don’t have to waste energy swinging your arms.

TIP! A stance can be corrected with an easy toe-wiggling routine. Try to take a swing, if you are having difficulty wiggling your toes while doing so, then you are leaning in too far in favor of the ball.

When just starting out, it’s important to learn how to properly grip the club. A lot of beginners grip their club harder when they wish to send the ball further. Instead, make sure your grip is soft, but firm. Imagine that you are cradling a wounded bird and use the same care to grip the club.

TIP! There is a particular spot on a club that, when it hits the ball with a well-aimed swing, produces the most accurate shot. Golfers call this the “sweet spot”.

Try a toe-wiggling experiment to reveal any faults in your stance. If it is hard to move one’s toes as the swing begins, it means one is pressing forward too much. Keep leaning back until you can more easily wiggle your toes. This helps you adjust your stance appropriately.

TIP! Keep focused on the next shot, forget those before it. Thinking about a previous success or mistake, or worrying about the next hole, will make you lose your concentration on the shot you need to make right now.

Make sure your left hand is actually ahead of your ball when you putt. Swing the club while attempting to maintain this position throughout your stroke. This helps to keep the ball from bouncing too hard off the club face, and will also hold the club firmly in your grasp.

Because of this, go through some stretches before you tee off, and also stay well hydrated. As with any sport, better physical conditioning can lead to better performance.

TIP! Hold your club with a neutral grip. Holding your club too tightly when you swing will usually make your shots turn right instead of going straight.

You want to consider using a neutral grip for your golf clubs. Gripping the club too tightly will send your shots careening to the right. Conversely, if you hold your club too loosely, the ball will go off to the left. Correct your grip according to the trajectory of your shots.

TIP! In golf, being in a positive, competitive mental state is of equal importance as being prepared physically. Try to take out any outside concerns and put your focus on your swing.

Keep proper alignment with your feet. This is perhaps the simplest and most effective way to improve your swing. Your feet should form a right angle with the intended direction of the shot. One common way to make sure your feet are in alignment with where you want to hit the ball is to lay your club in a way that it is touching the toes on both your feet.

TIP! If you’re going to treat yourself to a golf club, have it custom-fitted. Since all golfers are built differently, different clubs work better for different people.

To keep your energy up on the golf course, you should bring a snack with you. Foods high in protein, like nuts and seeds, are the perfect golfing companion. Golf can make a person both mentally and physically tired. Your mind will be alert and your muscles will not get too tired during the 18 holes, thanks to the energy and protein from the snack.

TIP! Check your club’s head prior to buying a used one. You will be able to easily notice wear and tear on clubs that have had a lot of use in the past.

The physical and mental benefits are many, and the basics of golf are actually quite easy. Now that you’ve read this article, get out on the course and apply what you’ve learned. You should understand the basics well enough to play your first game.

Don’t just take our word for it!

"I am now hitting more fairways than ever before. I only slice maybe twice a round now and this is only when I fall back into old habits. Also I have gained about 15-20 yards which gives me shorter second shots.

I used to hit maybe 3 fairways in an 18 hole round but now I miss only 2 in a round and sometimes none.

This system was easy to read and follow instructions. The drills were simple and anybody ought to be able to read and understand the directions.

I must say it's a lot more fun to play from the fairways than always from the rough on the right side."

"After following this system I am hitting the ball more solidly and have learnt not to 'overhit' attempting to get that extra 'meter.' The biggest benefit The "Draw" System has done is to give me a more consistent strike of the ball - I actually had a 100 meter wedge back-spin to the hole today.

Also this system has eliminated a tendency for my drives to fade/slice and I have seen videos that were basically aiming at the same objective but didn't provide the clear steps to work through like your system does."
