TIP! Consult a professional if you’re thinking about buying new golf clubs. Take their advice, and always research the newest innovations and try a wide variety of golf clubs before deciding which ones to purchase.

Golf is a fun way to get exercise, relax, and be social. Nearly anyone can play golf, you just need to begin. Read the following paragraphs for some ideas on how to do just that.

TIP! Correctly grip the club when you first learn to play golf is vital. A mistake made by many is gripping the club too tightly, thinking it will add weight to the club.

It’s always best to walk the golf course, instead of using a golf cart to get around. Walking the course will drastically increase the level of exercise you get, which will turn your game into a really great method for improving your fitness level! Walking will also help to keep you loose and your muscles warm.

TIP! Each golf club is made with a “sweet spot,” which is the exact location on the club that provides you the most accuracy and distance if you strike the ball at that point. Practice with clubs to find their sweet spot, and remember to have those spots contact with your ball on your downswing.

If you have the opportunity, ask a professional his or her opinion on a club, or certainly on a set of new clubs you are considering purchasing. They can help you find the club that best suits you and will know about the newest available clubs.

TIP! If you are faced with a very long putt, you should devote most of your concentration to the speed with which you hit the ball. Instead of aiming for the hole, read the putt and aim for an intermediate target.

To have a great swing, you must develop all your body strength to put behind it. Beginning golfers rely too much on their arms for swinging power, which causes them not to hit all that far. You get better results when your body is in sync with your arms and hands.

TIP! Be sure to drink enough water and stretch properly just like you would during any other sport. To become successful with golf, take care of your body.

An easy exercise, a “toe-wiggling” exercise, can show golf stance faults. Try to take a swing, if you are having difficulty wiggling your toes while doing so, then you are leaning in too far in favor of the ball. To attain the correct posture, a golfer must lean back to the point at which there is some “play” in the feet.

Sweet Spot

TIP! To get a strong swing going, you have to use all of your muscles, particularly your trunk and legs. Swing your body like a whip when you swing and get power from your lower body.

Strike a ball with the sweet spot of the club for perfect accuracy. Get familiar with each club’s sweet spot. When you practice, experiment with each of your clubs to find this spot. Hit the ball with the sweet spot as you swing your club down.

TIP! Grip your golf club in a neutral fashion. You shots will lean to the right if you grasp you golf club too tightly.

During a putt, position your left hand so that it’s in front of the ball when you address it. If you can keep your hands in this position through the putt, it increases your chances for a smooth roll every time. Doing this will give you a strong grip on the club, and will keep your ball from bouncing off the club’s face as the two connect.

For this reason, stretch before you play and drink plenty of water. Properly warming up and maintaining your body will have an equally positive impact on your game.

TIP! If you desire to improve in golf, you need to make sure that you’re standing while having the right position. The position you have usually dictates the distance your golf ball travels.

A helpful tip when it comes to golf is to know how to keep score. This can be helpful because your skill as a golfer is frequently determined by your score. The score, in its basic form, is every swing is counted as a stroke, and the number of strokes it takes to reach the hole is the score for that hole. Unlike most sports, a lower score is better!

TIP! Don’t get carried away trying to pull off an unnatural stance. Try practicing your stance without a club in your hand.

The physical and mental benefits are many, and the basics of golf are actually quite easy. Now that you’ve read this article, get out on the course and apply what you’ve learned. You should understand the basics well enough to play your first game.

Testimonial

The instructions are excellent. The photo's supporting the written word make it very easy to understand what one is meant to do. Well written. This is the best that I have seen in written form. The difference is that every move is explained in detail, with photos, and it is simple to follow.

I'm very happy I've bought this system - the best thing is that I can review my swing and identify the areas I need to correct. Well done - excellent material, I have referred other people to the course."

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."
