Golfing Tips You Should Be Aware Of

TIP! Learning to use your body as part of your golfing strategy can produce marked improvements in your score. Your entire body is needed to truly power your shots.

It doesn’t matter whether you’ve played golf for years or are completely new to the game. The sport presents challenges and entertainment for players at all skill levels. Read on for some tips to help you become a better golfer.

TIP! The first step to mastering the game of golf is the correct grip of the club. New golfers often mistakenly grip the club tightly in hopes they will be able to hit the ball harder.

You’ll find that your whole body becomes completely engaged when playing golf. Not only your arms, but also your torso will serve as your powerhouse. Using your entire body to swing your club can really improve your game on the golf course. When your shot is powered by your body, you can usually get more distance without having to use as much power from your arms.

TIP! Wriggle your toes around a bit when you are in your golf stance. If you can move your feet very easily, then you have not aligned your body properly enough to take your shot.

For beginner golfers, learning to grip the club properly is key. A mistake made by many is gripping the club too tightly, thinking it will add weight to the club. Grip your club softly but firmly. Hold your club similar to how you would a bird.

TIP! During a putt, position your left hand so that it’s in front of the ball when you address it. Keep this position while you swing.

An easy exercise, a “toe-wiggling” exercise, can show golf stance faults. If it’s hard to wiggle the toes at the beginning of the swing, the golfer is leaning in to the ball too far. To get the proper posture for play, lean back until you feel a little play in your feet.

Sweet Spot

TIP! When lining up on the tee, make sure that the ball is aligned with the heel of your forward foot. During any other swing, the golf ball should be almost dead center between your feet when you swing.

Every club contains a “sweet spot,” which is where the face will strike the ball with greatest accuracy. When you hit the ball at the lowest point of your swing, you can gain greater distance. To do this, discover the sweet spot on each of your irons; by taking this approach, you get the most from your clubs.

TIP! Consider getting custom-fitted when buying a club. Every golfer is proportioned differently, so a club that hits like a champ for golfer A, may leave golfer B hitting into the rough.

Be sure that you keep all your focus on the shot you’re going to take next. Do not let the previous successful or unsuccesful shot, or the upcoming water hazard, take you away from the hit you are about to make. 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! Inspect the head of any golf club you intend to buy. If the club has a worn, shiny spot near its center, it has been overused by its previous owner.

Make sure you know exactly how to keep accurate score when you’re playing golf. When you know how to keep score you aren’t judged as a bad player, it is something that shouldn’t be overlooked. Count each time you hit the ball, call it a stroke, and add the times it takes to get it in the hole! The goal is to minimize the number of strokes it takes you to get the ball into the hole.

TIP! Refrain from using a unnatural stance. Try to address the ball without using a club.

Now that you have taken the initiative to learn something new about the sport of golf, you can impress your golfing buddies (or that gorgeous pro shop attendant) with the information you’ve just picked up. Look for new ways to apply these skills to your current game, to make the game even more challenging and engaging.

Don’t just take our word for it!

"This system has given me a better understanding of the mechanics of the swing which I could not get through lessons. After completing this system my drives are much straighter, but the biggest benefit has been with my fairway woods.

This system is a ready reference for anytime I want to refresh the mechanics of my swing. I have seen similar instructions in other books etc. but never laid out in the same detailed way as your system.

This "Draw" System has given me more enjoyment because I finally feel I can work the ball either way now. I'm on a 10.5 hcp and The "Draw" System is what I need to help me get down to a single figure handicap."

"I enjoy playing golf more after getting this system as I can put the ball in the fairway more consistently with the driver. And what I liked the best about The "Draw" System was the little by little a day approach.

Most of the times when I am working with a pro, he tries to give me too much for me to change in one day. On the other hand I am also to blame, as I am paying him by the hour, I also want to squeeze the most out of him to make the most out of the money paid. Now as I am paying for the book only a fixed sum, I can avoid this."
