TIP! Learn how to hold your club correctly from the first time you play. Beginners often grip the club too hard, thinking that they will hit the ball further that way.

Are you confused about how to play golf or why so many people enjoy it? Does it seem silly to you or utterly confusing? The best thing you can do is to read up on the tradition, rules and sportsmanship expected when playing golf. Check out this article and learn a little bit more about the mysterious game of golf, and how it is such a tremendous source of fun for so many people.

TIP! Wiggling your toes will help to get a better sense of your posture as you prepare to swing your golf club. If this action causes your feet to shift significantly, then you are not properly balanced over the ball.

Golf is a sport that utilizes your entire body while you play. It is important not to rely on just the arms, but instead to utilize both the upper and lower body together as a solid unit. Let your body be one with the club. This can help propel the ball further so that you don’t have to swing the arms too hard.

TIP! Remember that this shot is the only one that matters right now. 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.

You need to find out how to correctly grip your club when you are learning how to play golf. Most commonly, people try to grip the club hard in hopes of hitting the ball further. Instead, the club should be held loosely in the fingers. Hold the club like you would hurt a hamster, strong enough to hold it, light enough that you won’t crush it.

TIP! If you are right-handed, swing the putter with the left hand in front of the ball at the point of impact. Attempt to maintain the position for the duration of your swing.

A great technique for bettering your swing is to make the most of your entire body weight as a means to gain additional power. Beginning golfers often assume that the swing is all in the arms, but if you use only the strength in your arms, then your drives will literally come up short. When you use your whole body, you create true strength in your stroke and create a beautiful shot.

TIP! If you can, golf with good players and study their technique. Other golfers can help you out in many ways.

Always stay focused on the next shot. Don’t think about your past shots or the water hazard you’re going to have to face; don’t get distracted from the very next shot that’s up. If you dwell on mistakes, it will hut your swing, just put them behind you.

TIP! Good golfers are as smart and mentally healthy as they are fit. Put all other stresses in your life out of mind and focus on the game.

Place your left hand ahead when you address 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. 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.

TIP! Before starting your swing, always check to ensure that you have the proper grip. The grip of the club should be snugly in your palms, with both thumbs aiming toward the clubhead.

It is best to grip your club with moderate intensity. When you grip your golf club tighter than you should, your shots will tend to hook right. On the other hand, tightening the grip too far will have the reverse effect and cut a well-aimed ball towards the left. By watching the way your shots go, you can start to fix your grip.

TIP! Try to be as natural as possible with your stances..

As stated in the beginning of this article, golf can be quite confusing if you have never played before. You now have the information that you need about golf. Judge the sport on your own terms and give it a try, to see if this is a sport that you could get into!

"I have picked up golf seriously at the age of 43. The "Draw" System has enabled me to understand what goes wrong with what I do to a golf ball and make corrections. Having this knowledge has me playing with a 19 handicap after only playing for a short while. It helped me understand the game better.

When I started playing my shots landed anywhere except where I was aiming. I am now getting my shots to go where I am aiming more regularly. Just yesterday, I hit a 141-yard shots on a par 3 and it landed 6 feet away from the hole. Three months ago that would never have happened.

The instructions and the pictures are wonderful. The instructions are concise and descriptive. Combined with the pictures, it promotes easy understanding. The pictures help the most."

"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."
