TIP! If you wiggle your toes a little before you swing this can tell you about your posture. Your feet should have restricted movement to ensure you are leaning properly.

Some sports provide simultaneous relaxation and physical activity, golf being one of them. Not only does playing golf let you stay active, but you will also enjoy yourself. It’s no fun, however, if you don’t have the proper mechanics. Look through the following tips and improve your game.

TIP! Don’t take golf too seriously. You’re going to make mistakes, and having the ability to laugh them off not only helps you reset mentally for your next shot, it means you can relax more.

To ensure your posture is correct, wiggle your toes. If your toes wiggle freely, your posture may be tilted too far back. You need to lean slightly into the ball in order for your feet to move just a bit. Make sure your feet do not move too far.

TIP! Golf clubs have a point known as the “sweet spot.” If the ball is hit at this point, it will fly true.

To really get a powerful swing going, you need to utilize the muscles in your whole body, especially the legs and trunk. Simulate the cracking of a whip while you swing your torso around and push your feet firmly against the ground. The energy for the arched swing begins in the feet and is transferred up through the legs and into your trunk and arms.

TIP! When you putt, have your left hand in front of the ball. You also want to do your best to maintain this position and form while you swing your club.

Hold your club with a neutral grip. You shots will lean to the right if you grasp you golf club too tightly. Conversely, if you hold your club too loosely, the ball will go off to the left. In order to fix this, adjust the grip according to the direction of the shot.

TIP! A powerful golf swing requires you to use your abdominal, back and leg muscles but the finesse of the swing comes from the movement of your wrist. Try to use your body as if it where a whip while swinging, and obtain power from the legs as they push off of the ground.

Always keep your feet positioned in a straight line. This simple step is considered to be one of the most important parts of maintaining a consistent swing. Your feet should form a right angle with the intended direction of the shot. You can check that you are doing this correctly by putting the club parallel to your toes; the tip of the club will be pointing towards the ball’s potential path.

TIP! The back of the front fooT should be aligned with the ball during your drive. Place the ball squarely between your feet for all other swing types.

If you want to eat while on the course, try a light snack that is packed with proteins, such as nuts. Eating the proper nutrition while golfing is important because the game requires both physical and mental strength. Protein will fuel your body and mind, making you less susceptible to mental drain and muscle fatigue; this allows you to keep up your endurance all the way to the eighteenth hole.

TIP! Mental preparation is as, if not more important, than physical preparation when playing a round of golf. Whatever stressful situations you’re dealing with should be left at home.

Be certain you are standing correctly to get the right golf swing. The distance the golf ball travels is dictated by your stance. 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! Before buying any used club, always inspect the the club’s head and face. If the club has a worn, shiny spot near its center, it has been overused by its previous owner.

Being mentally prepared is just as important as being physically prepared when it comes to a game of golf. Leave all the stress in your life elsewhere for just a while and concentrate on the game at hand.

Golf Club

TIP! Be sure that you behind the golf ball at a distance of about four feet. At the same time, you should be viewing the location where you want the ball to end up.

If you’re going to treat yourself to a golf club, have it custom-fitted. This will make the club suit your body type exactly. A golf club perfect for someone else may not work for you. Getting a fitted golf club can aid your swing.

TIP! If your shot tends to head off to the right, you are most likely sliding your body to the left while swinging. During the downswing, quickly release your hands to the ball.

Fortunately, improving your game isn’t that hard. Basically, the intangibles, such as your attitude and swing, are what make a person successful at the game of golf. Use these tips on the green to play like a pro.

"I have picked up golf seriously at the age of 43. The "Draw" System has enabled me to understand what goes wrong with what I do to a golf ball and make corrections. Having this knowledge has me playing with a 19 handicap after only playing for a short while. It helped me understand the game better.

When I started playing my shots landed anywhere except where I was aiming. I am now getting my shots to go where I am aiming more regularly. Just yesterday, I hit a 141-yard shots on a par 3 and it landed 6 feet away from the hole. Three months ago that would never have happened.

The instructions and the pictures are wonderful. The instructions are concise and descriptive. Combined with the pictures, it promotes easy understanding. The pictures help the most."

"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."
