Simple Golf Tips That Are Easy To Learn Updated for 2024

Updated: April 11, 2024

TIP! A smart piece of golf advice is to pass on renting a cart, and instead walk the course. Walking from one hole to another gives you extra exercise, thus supplementing the health benefits of playing golf.

Playing golf is all about practicing and having the right technique. You should focus on learning the proper way to swing the club. Be aware of what aspects lead to a great game. Hopefully, you found the tips in this article helpful. If you practice them, you’ll soon see improvements on the golf course.

TIP! Get advice from a professional if you want to buy clubs. Golf pros often have an impressive knowledge of all the newest clubs available on the market, and they’ll also have a good idea what sort of club will be best for you.

When golfing, sometimes it’s better to walk, rather than getting a golf cart. This will exponentially increase the amount of exercise that you get on the course, and turn it into an extremely beneficial way to improve your health! Plus, you will stay warmed up and loose as you walk along, thus improving your golf game.

TIP! One of the first things you want to get down when learning golf is the proper grip for all of your clubs. Most commonly, people try to grip the club hard in hopes of hitting the ball further.

Think of your body as a tool for your game. Use your entire body to generate the power for your game, not just your arms and legs. When you swing the club, your body should always stay 100 percent behind your swing. Not only will you be able to hit the ball further, but it will also alleviate your arms from doing all the work, putting less stress on your whole body.

TIP! A common technique among professional golfers, though it sounds very whimsical, is the toe-wiggling exercise. If it is hard to move one’s toes as the swing begins, it means one is pressing forward too much.

When you first start out playing golf, it is important you understand how to properly grip the club. It is very common for players to tighten their grip on a club, hoping it helps them hit the ball even farther. A better approach is to employ a grip which is firm but softer. Hold the club with a very delicate grip, as if you were holding a baby bird or a child.

TIP! One sage piece of advice about golf is to be easy about it all. Certain errors can occur and laughing at these errors will relax you, so you can refocus on the game.

To have a great swing, you must develop all your body strength to put behind it. Novices tend to have the belief that strength is drawn primarily from the arms; however, using arms alone generates nothing but weak, ungainly swings. It is more effective to move your entire body with the motion of the club.

TIP! A great tip for putting is when you address the ball, your left hand needs to be in front of the ball. Don’t let this position slip during your stroke.

Wiggling your toes can tell you much about your posture as you are getting ready to take a golf swing. You may be leaning in the wrong direction if you can easily move your feet, so don’t distance yourself so much from the ball. You should attempt to lessen your forward lean and allow your feet to move only slightly in either direction without notice.

TIP! Try to focus on the speed that you hit the golf ball when you are going for a long putt. Don’t shoot for the hole; shoot for a target just short of the hole.

Focus on how you will proceed with the next shot. Don’t let the success or lack thereof from previous shots or upcoming hazards break your focus. 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! Always stretch your muscles before and after your golf game, and always stay hydrated. Tending to your body’s needs will help you play your best game.

Now that you know a number of methods you can use to up your game, it’s time to get to the driving range and hit a few buckets of balls. You are bound to see a large amount of game improvement if you incorporate some of the tips you have learned here. Remember that golf should remain an enjoyable activity for you.

Don’t just take our word for it!

"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."

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.
