TIP! When golfing, sometimes it’s better to walk, rather than getting 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.

Some sports, like golf, are a remarkable blend of exercise, coupled with relaxation. Golf gives you a chance to be active in a sport while enjoying life. But, going about it incorrectly can be a real painful experience for you and those you are playing with. Fear not, though, the tips below will put you on the right path to improving your game, to give you maximum enjoyment of this sport.

TIP! Use your body for more power behind your swing. There is a common misconception that all of your power comes from your arms, yet it is actually all about position and form.

By experimenting with different feels while on the driving range, you will have a better chance to find a stance that allows you to swing comfortably. Based on a variety of physical attributes, finding your proper stance may look much different than the best stance for other golfers you play with. Your game will improve greatly once you find the proper stance.

TIP! The position of your toes will help guide you towards finding proper posture for your swing. Your feet should have restricted movement to ensure you are leaning properly.

If you have the opportunity, ask a professional his or her opinion on a club, or certainly on a set of new clubs you are considering purchasing. Take their advice, and always research the newest innovations and try a wide variety of golf clubs before deciding which ones to purchase.

TIP! Focus on how you will proceed with the next shot. Don’t think about your past shots or the water hazard you’re going to have to face; don’t get distracted from the very next shot that’s up.

Wiggling your toes can tell you much about your posture as you are getting ready to take a golf swing. You may be leaning in the wrong direction if you can easily move your feet, so don’t distance yourself so much from the ball. Lean enough to allow your feet to move slightly. Leaning too far results in your feet moving too much.

TIP! To really get a powerful swing going, you need to utilize the muscles in your whole body, especially the legs and trunk. Instead of thinking that you need to power through the swing using the muscles of your arms, allow your momentum from your lower core to whip the club through the ball.

One good suggestion where golf is concerned is to not let yourself get too serious over the game. Everyone makes mistakes and the ability to laugh at them will help you to learn from your flubs and relax while you play.

TIP! Be certain to properly line your feet up. This is possibly one of the greatest golf tips.

You need to find your golf club’s “sweet spot.” This is a point on the club’s blade that propels the ball to where you want it to go every time it makes contact. Go ahead and check out all of your clubs so that you know the sweet spots in each of them.

TIP! Before starting your swing, always check to ensure that you have the proper grip. Your thumbs should be pointing downwards, with the handle of the club resting against your palms.

Focus on the speed your swing has when you actually hit the ball if you’re facing a long putt. Don’t shoot for the hole; shoot for a target just short of the hole. By aiming for a target in between, you’ll put yourself in a good position to make a short putt to the hole. This is less risky than trying to make one putt into the hole from a far distance.

TIP! You can maintain a high confidence while golfing if you play with other players at your skill level. While you are a beginner, find easier courses to play on with people of a similar skill level.

Once you set foot on the golf course for the first time, that line will make perfect sense. Certain intangibles are required to be successful at golf, and those intangibles start with your swing and your mental focus. Implement these tips, and work on perfecting your game.

Don’t just take our word for it!

Although the system is meant to improve your draw, in fact it has improved other areas of my game e.g. my setup and accuracy. I am now consistently hitting the ball cleanly and going in the direction I want it to. I think these are the benefits of the various drills and exercises you suggested.

The "Draw" System has narrowed the exercise and search for improving my game because everything is presented in a neat package without having to search all of them individually.

Being new to the game I did wonder why certain drills and exercises were recommended. In the end I did find out they were great. The instructions are explained very simply and easy to follow but as I said I did wonder initially what they had to do with trying to draw the ball. The answers came in the end.

I used to slice the ball badly before but now I can hit it straight or if it goes right it is not as bad as before, at least it still stays on the fairway. It is a great feeling to see that ball stay on the fairway."

"My fairway woods are now much more consistent in distance and much straighter, both off the tee and from the fairway. Also my mid iron shots are more consistent than in the past.

This system helped me to learn to put all the pieces together to know what a good swing should feel like. Whereas in the past someone might give me a good piece of advice, but I never had it in the context of a whole solid swing. And now I'm finally gaining confidence with my swing.

The instructions were easy to follow. The pictures added a lot of clarity to what you were looking to emulate. The "Draw" System gives you a step by step approach to building a good, solid, repeatable golf swing. All the drills are geared towards that singular goal of producing a swing that will produce a draw.

I've seen a lot of the drills used in The "Draw" System, but this is the first time where I've seen all the drills tied together in order to produce the "whole" good swing. And I'm finally learning what a good swing should feel like, (after years of unsuccessful guessing), and can try to recreate that sensation on the course.

I enjoy playing golf more now because I can actually start aiming at where I want to hit the ball. And I'm having a lot more fun actually hitting a lot more often from the fairway!

A very good, useful book! Thanks for compiling all the information and drills to help me understand and incorporate the swing mechanics in order to produce a draw."
