Pointers For Adding A Little Extra Distance On Your Drive

Pointers For Adding A Little Extra Distance On Your Drive

TIP! When you first start out playing golf, it is important you understand how to properly grip the club. The most common problem when trying to hit the ball far is they tend to have a hard grip on the club.

Golfing isn’t as simple as sinking a golf ball into a target hole far away. You have to use your strength and accuracy to send the ball exactly where you want to. The tips below can help you improve your golf skills.

TIP! Use the entire body for power when swinging the golf club. Inexperienced players believe that strength derives from their upper body, but using only your arms means your swing will be weak and awkward.

One of the first things you want to get down when learning golf is the proper grip for all of your clubs. A mistake made by many is gripping the club too tightly, thinking it will add weight to the club. Instead, you should use a grip that is soft, but firm. Hold the golf club as though you were cradling a small bird.

TIP! Golf is a game and should be fun, not stressful. Mistakes will happen and you should laugh at them to remain calm.

Stand so that your left hand is in front of the ball when preparing to putt. Sustain this position as you take your swing and follow through on your stroke. This keeps the ball from falling off the club’s face when contact is made.

TIP! For this reason, stretch before you play and drink plenty of water. When you’re in good shape, your game will improve.

The true power for a swing comes from using the entire body, including leg and trunk muscles. Simulate the cracking of a whip while you swing your torso around and push your feet firmly against the ground. The energy for the arched swing begins in the feet and is transferred up through the legs and into your trunk and arms.

TIP! One of the first things you need to learn about golf is the scoring rules. This can be helpful because your skill as a golfer is frequently determined by your score.

When holding your club, utilize a neutral grip. If you hold the club too tightly, your golf shots are going to probably go off towards the right. However, if a golf club held too loose the shot will veer to the left. Observe the ball after taking a shot. If you’re hitting too far to the right or left, adjust your grip accordingly.

TIP! You probably want to bring a nice healthy snack to fuel your body and mind while you’re on the course. Golf can make a person both mentally and physically tired.

Prior to any golf shot, always check for the proper stance. You have a better chance to get maximum distance if you maintain a consistent body position with your swing. Slouching during your shot will ensure that your ball doesn’t go very far at all.

TIP! Before you pay for a previously-owned club, check out the head. If the club has a worn, shiny spot near its center, it has been overused by its previous owner.

When you are standing in the correct stance and are just about to swing, you should swing your hips in a quick manner to shift your weight from your back foot over to your front foot. This will help to improve your swing’s power and increase the distance that the ball travels.

TIP! Contrary to what most people say, keep the same ball positioning for all your shots. This will help to improve the consistency of your game.

Boost your confidence by playing with people who are on your level or slightly higher. Don’t try to play with people who are far more skilled than you, as you’ll get frustrated. Similarly, playing with people who are far less skilled than you makes for a boring game. When you just learning to play, challenge beginner-level courses, and take other beginners with you when you play. There is no point in crushing your enthusiasm by trying to take on a really tough course, and competing against players who outrank you.

TIP! Don’t wear sneaker golf shoes in the early morning when the dew is still on the grass. Some sneaker style shoes are waterproof, but most are not–if you walk on a wet golf course with them on, you’ll get soaked.

While golf is a sport that virtually anyone can play, in order to take your swing to the upper levels it takes dedication. Apply what you learned in this article to become a better player.

I know your a busy man so I'll keep this short. If I ever meet you in person I'll KISS you!!!!! You have saved my golf game. I've been playing for 2 years and in the beginning I found it very easy. In less than 9 months I was a 14 and it was looking like it was going to continue to go down. Then I hit a wall, that little ball started to go right, and then it went further right, then even further right..... I was losing massive distance as well, 3 clubs. I fought with it for ages.  Well I'm now 4 months into my new swing and I shot a 77 yesterday. You absolute beauty!!!! 15 of 18 greens, what a game!!!!! Your mental course is magnificent, coupled with the draw system I can now play golf on a level I never thought possible.

"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."
