Helpful Ideas For A Lower Score Every Round

TIP! It is a good idea to skip the golf cart and walk the course when you are golfing. This helps you get much more exercise so that you can improve your health.

It doesn’t matter if you are an expert at golf, or just a beginner who thinks that eagles and birdies are things that birdwatchers do. The great game of golf challenges players of all skill levels. Before beginning, review this list of excellent tricks and tips that will give you valuable insight into the game of golf.

TIP! One of the most important things to consider when starting to learn a golf swing is to how to incorporate a proper grip. Quite a few people correlate a hard grip with being able to hit a ball further.

Walking, rather than renting a cart, is a really good idea when you golf. Walking the course will also help you become more familiar with the grounds and help you with your shots. This will also help your muscles stay warm and your body stay loose.

TIP! A stance can be corrected with an easy toe-wiggling routine. If it is hard to move one’s toes as the swing begins, it means one is pressing forward too much.

Your body itself can serve as a golf trainer. Your entire body is needed to truly power your shots. Involve your body when you move the club instead of using only your arms. You can actually get a better stroke covering more distance like this, and it doesn’t require you to swing all the hard.

TIP! To ensure your posture is correct, wiggle your toes. If you have free movement of your feet without any problems, then you may be too far from the ball.

Learn how to hold your club correctly from the first time you play. One common mistake is thinking that gripping the club harder will cause the ball to be hit further. However, you can get more distance by have a firm but soft grip. Hold your club similar to how you would a bird.

TIP! Put your left hand before the ball while putting. If you can keep your hands in this position through the putt, it increases your chances for a smooth roll every time.

One way to check for correct posture before you swing is by wiggling your toes. If your feet have freedom to move around without any effort or resistance, you’re probably too far back from the ball. You want to lean toward the ball enough that your feet have some movement ability, but cannot move too much.

TIP! If you are seeking power from your swing, focus on building a strong core and solid legs. Swing your body around like a whip as you swing, and draw power from your legs pushing against the ground.

Don’t take golf too seriously. Try to remember that it’s just a game. Things are bound to go wrong from time to time, so you need to learn to laugh at your mistakes. This will help you recover more quickly and relax so you can get on with your game.

TIP! When playing golf, it is important to get the proper focus both mentally and physically. Clear your mind and concentrate on the game.

Remember that this shot is the only one that matters right now. Don’t let other players’ or even your own good or bad shots effect the next one you take. Anxiety about earlier poor plays can really have an effect on your game, so do your best to push them from your mind completely, rather than dwelling on them.

TIP! Stand between 3 to 5 feet behind your ball and keep your eyes focused on where you want the ball to go. During this point, you should also be aware of the wind and your surroundings as a whole.

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."

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."
