Lower Your Handicap With These Amazing Golf Tips Updated for 2024

Updated: July 18, 2024

TIP! You can get a lot of help you in your golf game from your body. Your entire body–not just the arms–should be viewed as a major source of power.

It matters not, whether you are an established golfer or a novice, who thinks birdies and eagles are strictly for birdwatchers. The sport presents challenges and entertainment for players at all skill levels. Before you tee up, browse through this selection of handpicked tips and tricks for interesting insight into the sport.

Proper Stance

TIP! One way to check for correct posture before you swing is by wiggling your toes. If you are able to move your feet without difficulty, you are probably not leaning in far enough.

Doing this will allow you to zero in on the stance that helps you hit the ball most accurately. Based on a variety of physical attributes, finding your proper stance may look much different than the best stance for other golfers you play with. When you can identify and maintain the proper stance, your overall game will greatly improve.

TIP! Don’t take golf too seriously. Try to remember that it’s just a game.

A helpful tip when it comes to golf is to consider checking with a golf professional before buying a new club or set of clubs. Golf professionals have the knowledge and experience to help you choose clubs that suit you.

TIP! Focus 100% on your upcoming shot. 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.

Look for the “sweet spot” of your golf club. This refers to a point on the club that should be ideally meeting the ball for the most accuracy and speed. Take the time to recognize where this ‘sweet spot’ can be found on each of your clubs in order to maximize your game.

TIP! When putting, always ensure that your left hand is in front of the ball. Maintain this position as you follow through with your swing.

If you have to putt a ball across a large green, pay special attention to the speed of your putt. As opposed to aiming at the hole, look at the putt and shoot for a target. This strategy will likely shorten the distance required of your second putt.

Stretch before you step on the green and keep water handy. Taking care of yourself is always important, but it can also help you improve your game.

TIP! Have a neutral grip for your club. Your shots will drift to the right if you grip the golf club tightly.

Knowing how exactly to keep score is a good idea for golf. You should know how to keep score because you can judge how good you and friends did. Every time you hit the ball counts as a stroke, and the total number of strokes you get from tee to hole is your cumulative score for that hole. Unlike most sports, a lower score is better!

TIP! If you plan to play a full eighteen holes, you would do well to pack a healthy, protein-rich snack in your bag. Golf is a game both physically and mentally exhausting.

If you are mentally prepared it can be very important, just as crucial as being in shape when you are golfing. Leave all the stress in your life elsewhere for just a while and concentrate on the game at hand.

TIP! You cannot swing if you are not holding your club correctly. Make sure the handle is resting against your palms while your thumbs point downward.

Always thoroughly inspect the club head before purchasing any used golf club. If a club is worn out, you can tell by looking at the head. You’ll see shiny spots where the metal is worn down. This isn’t going to help your game because the club will slap your ball, rather than hit it.

TIP! Do not get caught up in trying to assume an unnatural stance. Try addressing your ball without your 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!

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."

"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."
