TIP! Use your entire body to power your golf swing. When people first start out playing golf, they think the power is in their arms, but that is only partially true because you need to be in coordination with your body to hit the ball far.

Are you a novice golfer? If you’re lost with where you should start with your swing, you’re not alone. It is a common feeling. Study and implement the following tips for learning and playing the game of golf.

TIP! Exercise your toes to figure out faults in your stance when golfing. If a golfer ready to swing is unable to wiggle their toes easily, then they are leaning in too much in the direction of the ball.

Every club contains a “sweet spot,” which is where the face will strike the ball with greatest 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! So make sure you are properly hydrated, and before you tee off, make sure you properly warm up. The better shape your body is in, the better your game will be.

When you putt, have your left hand in front of the ball. Attempt to maintain the position for the duration of your swing. This will minimize the chance the ball will skip off the face of your club at impact, and makes it easier to maintain control of your stroke.

TIP! Line your feet up properly. This is the best way to improve your swing and it is such a simple and easy thing to do.

If you can, play with better golfers and learn from their techniques. You can benefit from the experience of other players by just watching them. You don’t even have to play with the person you’re shadowing to learn from him. Sometimes, just spending time with him helps your game. If you focus on the methods that they use, you’ll be able to develop new strategies, and they may encourage you to put more effort into your game.

So you need to drink lots of water and do your stretches before you play. Taking care of your body can add to your golfing success.

TIP! Be certain you are standing correctly to get the right golf swing. You have a better chance to get maximum distance if you maintain a consistent body position with your swing.

Hold your club with a neutral grip. Don’t squeeze the club too tightly; this makes your shots go further right than you want. Inversely, holding your club loosely will cause the ball to go left. You can make adjustments to your grip according to the direction of each shot.

TIP! Before you purchase a pre-owned club, you should first carefully inspect the club head. You will be able to easily notice wear and tear on clubs that have had a lot of use in the past.

Closely examine the head of any used club you consider buying. If a club has been overused, you can tell by the shiny, worn spot on the head. This kind of wear can seriously affect your shots.

TIP! Before you begin your swing, be sure to hold the golf club in the correct way. The handle of it should be resting in you palms with both of your thumbs pointing downward.

Avoid using an unnatural stance. Try to address the ball without using a club. Stand with knees flexed, bent slightly at the waist and let your arms drop naturally in front of you. Have one hand grasp the other and hold it tightly. If the position you are in feels awkward, it is likely not a good one. Keep it simple.

TIP! Protect your confidence, and enjoy yourself more by playing mostly with other golfers at your level. While you are a beginner, find easier courses to play on with people of a similar skill level.

Golf really isn’t as difficult as you may have thought. It is a relaxing pastime specifically because of its leisurely pace. Because you now possess some knowledge on how to properly play, give it a go.

Don’t just take our word for it!

"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."

Testimonial

"Before I started your "Draw" System I had a slice. Since following your day by day instructions, I now hit the fairway much more often with a slight fade or draw when I get it right! As a result I have gone from hitting 220-230 yards to hitting 250-280 yards.

I found the instructions easy to follow. It brought me along at the right speed in learning the system correctly without rushing. The step by step system I found left you excited to want to learn that step so you could move on to the next.

It has improved my distance off the tee (a good 50 yards +) and helped me with my swing more importantly. Which has improved my whole game and as a result I hit straighter with more consistency. It has taken me to a new level in my golf game.

It was easy to follow learning at your own speed. It was almost like having a golf pro right there with you. Anytime you can improve at something you can always enjoy it better, especially when you see yourself improving from day to day. I am and would recommend this system to everyone who wants to improve their game."
