TIP! When you first start out playing golf, it is important you understand how to properly grip the club. It is very common for players to tighten their grip on a club, hoping it helps them hit the ball even farther.

The sport of golf can be very rewarding, and the physicality of the game provides those who play it with many healthy opportunities. Nearly anyone can play golf, you just need to begin. Here are a few tips that will help you set off on the right foot.

TIP! Try a toe-wiggling experiment to reveal any faults in your stance. The golfer is leaning too close into the ball if it’s hard to wiggle the toes.

When first learning to play, it is best to get the correct grip on the club. It is very common for players to tighten their grip on a club, hoping it helps them hit the ball even farther. The best grip is actually soft, yet firm. Hold the golf club as though you were cradling a small bird.

TIP! When putting, always ensure that your left hand is in front of the ball. Maintain proper posture and hand position throughout your swing.

To ensure your posture is correct, wiggle your toes. If you can do this without difficulty, you are probably leaning too far back from the ball. Lean toward the ball, moving your feel a little. If you move your feet too far, it does not work the way it should.

Don’t take golf too seriously. Everyone makes mistakes and the ability to laugh at them will help you to learn from your flubs and relax while you play.

Sweet Spot

TIP! You may want to bring nuts or other high-protein food items with you when you play. Golf demands both physical and mental effort.

The sweet spot on a club is where the ball meets with it, and is then launched with perfect accuracy. Pracitce using your clubs until you become familiar with the “sweet spot” of each one. Remember, you should strike the ball with this “sweet spot” at the very end of a downward swing.

TIP! Be sure you are using appropriate posture to maximize the impact of your golf swing. Your stance is the number one determinant of ball flight distance.

Your focus needs to be at 100% for your next shot. Make sure you do not let a bad shot get the best of you. If you are still mad at yourself for a mistake you made on the last hole, your swing off the next tee will not go well. Always concentrate on the next shot, and let the past ones stay in the past.

TIP! With the game of golf, mental preparation is equally as important as physical preparation. Let your home problems go and instead just focus your mind on the game.

When putting, always ensure that your left hand is in front of the ball. Putt the ball, keeping your hands steadily in this position as you follow through. This will help hold the club during your stroke and prevent the ball from jumping off the face of the club at contact.

So make sure you are properly hydrated, and before you tee off, make sure you properly warm up. Taking care of your body can add to your golfing success.

TIP! Before buying any used club, always inspect the the club’s head and face. An overused club will have a shiny spot on the head.

Hold your golf clubs with neutral grips. If the golf club is gripped too tightly, shots will generally veer to the right. If you do not hold your club tight enough, the ball will veer to the left. Correct your grip according to the trajectory of your shots.

Learning the sport is easy and there are plenty of physical and mental benefits. Let this article inspire you to become a better golfer.

Testimonial

"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."

"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."
