Golfing Tips You Should Be Aware Of

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!

"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."

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."
