TIP! When you are golfing, consider ditching the golf cart and walking. Walking from one hole to another gives you extra exercise, thus supplementing the health benefits of playing golf.

Most likely you wouldn’t be reading this if your game was already great. You are looking at this article, and you are going to learn some solid, helpful advice that will be important to the ongoing success of your golf game.

TIP! You need to find out how to correctly grip your club when you are learning how to play golf. The most common problem when trying to hit the ball far is they tend to have a hard grip on the club.

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. Standing properly is vital dependent upon your size, gender, and height. Once you find the right stance, you will immediately notice the benefit in your swing.

TIP! Exercise your toes to figure out faults in your stance when golfing. If wiggling your toes is hard to do when you swing, it will show they are leaning too far into the ball.

Walk and don’t rent a golf cart. This gives you a bit of exercise where you can enjoy the sun and fresh air, improving your fitness while you have a bit of fun! Walking can help keep your muscles warm and loose.

TIP! When you get ready to swing, check your posture by wiggling your toes. Your feet should have restricted movement to ensure you are leaning properly.

Having a fit body is key to playing a great game of golf. Your entire body is needed to truly power your shots. Your body should be fully involved in moving the club. You will be able to control the ball and send it further without injuring yourself.

TIP! Not trying to be too perfect will help you as you learn the game of golf. If you can learn to laugh at your mistakes, you’ll relax and play better instead of continuing to make them.

As you putt, you should strive to keep your left hand in front of the ball. Maintain this position while you complete your swing. You will then be able to hold the position of your golf club and stop the ball from going off the front of the club.

Leg Muscles

TIP! One of the most important aspects of successful golfing is your stance; therefore, it is important to stand in the correct position. Your ball will only go as far as your stance allows.

For a powerful swing, use all the muscles in the body, especially your core and leg muscles. Draw your power from your leg muscles pushing the ground away, and swing yourself like a whip when you swing.

TIP! Check the club head – before you buy a used golf club! A club that is worn due to use may have a smooth, shiny spot. This wear means less action from the grooves in the club that are designed to give you the best chance for distance and accuracy.

When holding your club, utilize a neutral grip. Holding the club too tight can cause your ball to veer to the right. If you’re holding the club too loosely, it tends to veer to the left. In order to fix this, adjust the grip according to the direction of the shot.

TIP! Refrain from using a unnatural stance. Practice addressing the ball without a club.

Prior to any golf shot, always check for the proper stance. The position that you are in usually dictates how far the golf ball will travel. If you are too bent or not bent enough, it will affect the follow-through of your swing and inhibit the distance of your drive.

TIP! When you are golfing and about to hit the ball, make certain that your hips swing quickly to get your weight shifted from your back foot and to the forward one. Hip swing, a move where your weight is shifted from your back foot to your front foot, is a critical determinant in your golf swing.

In golf, as in life, it is far less painful to learn from other’s mistakes than from your own mistakes. If you want an edge on the greens, then these tips offer you a number of easy and efficient ways to improve various aspects of your game.

I know your a busy man so I'll keep this short. If I ever meet you in person I'll KISS you!!!!! You have saved my golf game. I've been playing for 2 years and in the beginning I found it very easy. In less than 9 months I was a 14 and it was looking like it was going to continue to go down. Then I hit a wall, that little ball started to go right, and then it went further right, then even further right..... I was losing massive distance as well, 3 clubs. I fought with it for ages.  Well I'm now 4 months into my new swing and I shot a 77 yesterday. You absolute beauty!!!! 15 of 18 greens, what a game!!!!! Your mental course is magnificent, coupled with the draw system I can now play golf on a level I never thought possible.

"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."
