TIP! Put your whole body behind your golf swing. A lot of beginners think their arms should carry the swing and end up with a weak swing by employing this misconception.

Are you having a hard time understanding why so many people enjoy the game of golf? Does the sport seem ridiculous and confusing to you? If so, now is the time to learn all that you can about golf so that you can appreciate it fully. The information in this article will help you to understand more about the sport of golf.

TIP! You can find flaws in your stance by using a toe-wiggling exercise. If wiggling the toes is difficult when the golfer prepares to swing, it indicates that he or she is leaning too far in towards the ball.

This can help you figure out what can work best. Proper stance is essential, but it is not the same for everyone. Your game will see significant improvement if you can find the proper stance.

TIP! When putting the golf ball, hit the ball with the left hand in front of the ball. Hold this position as the putter strikes the ball and you complete your stroke.

The first step to mastering the game of golf is the correct grip of the club. Many people mistakenly believe they should grip the club extra-tight to hit the ball further. Instead of doing this, try using a grip which is supple but firm. Hold the club with a very delicate grip, as if you were holding a baby bird or a child.

TIP! Enhance your own skills by observing those of stronger golfers. There is more than one way to benefit from the expertise of a fellow golfer.

Use your entire body to power your golf swing. Beginners believe that the strength in their swing comes solely from the arms, but the truth is that using only your arms will give you a very weak shot. Moving the whole body with the club motion is much more effective.

TIP! If you wish to swing more powerfully, use the muscles throughout your body. The legs and your trunk are important to focus on.

Test your posture when preparing to swing by wiggling your toes. If this action causes your feet to shift significantly, then you are not properly balanced over the ball. You should be able to lean toward the ball, with your feet able to move just a small amount. If your feet move too much, you are not doing it correctly.

Sweet Spot

TIP! Prior to your next golf club purchase, consider going to a golf shop equipped to measure you for custom fitting. The right golf club needs to be suited to your weight, height, and body structure.

Every golf club has a “sweet spot” – the point on the face where a ball struck with a good swing has perfect accuracy. Practice your shots repeatedly to find the sweet spot on each club, remembering to make contact at the absolute bottom of your swing.

TIP! Before you begin your swing, be sure to hold the golf club in the correct way. Your thumbs should stay pointed downward, and the handle of the club should sit lightly against your palms.

Focus 100% on your upcoming shot. Whether you have been hitting well or poorly so far doesn’t matter – you’re only as good as your next shot. Thinking about past mistakes or future actions takes your mind off the swing, so do your best to just move on and forget about them.

TIP! Don’t stand or hold your club in an unnatural position. If it feels uncomfortable, you probably won’t be able to play well.

Where possible, include strong players in your golf group so you can learn from their superior technique. There are various ways to benefit from a pro golfer. You do not need to find a pro to get help from a better player. All that’s required is watching a good player as they play. Learn from their presence, such as how they handle themselves, the directions of their visual focus, the art of their swing, and how they carry this from hole to hole.

TIP! If you’re in the right position to swing, quickly swivel your hips so your weight moves from your back foot to your forward foot. This will strengthen your swing and increase the distance your ball will go.

As stated in the beginning of this article, golf can be quite confusing if you have never played before. You now have the information that you need about golf. Judge the sport on your own terms and give it a try, to see if this is a sport that you could get into!

Don’t just take our word for it!

"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."

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."
