Mark Twain famously said, “Golf is a good walk spoiled”. From hooking and slicing shots, balls that land in the sand to overshooting the green, these can all add to your frustration. It would be nice if everyone had a personal caddy to suggest the correct club for each shot, but unfortunately this is not the case. One of the most important things you must learn in order to improve as a golfer is how to choose your clubs. Check out the pointers in this article and see how they can help improve your game.
You must learn a correct grip as soon as you begin playing golf. Avoid the urge to squeeze the club as tightly as possible when hitting the ball. Instead of doing this, try using a grip which is supple but firm. Hold the club like you would hurt a hamster, strong enough to hold it, light enough that you won’t crush it.
You can get a lot of help you in your golf game from your body. Your body is the power source, not only your arms. Use your whole body to execute every stage of your golf swing. By using your whole body, you have a better chance to get more distance and better accuracy.
Don’t take golf too seriously. Mistakes will happen and you should laugh at them to remain calm.
Always stay focused on the next shot. Don’t let the outcome of the previous shot, or any upcoming challenges, influence the way you swing that club. If you dwell on mistakes, it will hut your swing, just put them behind you.
A great tip for putting is when you address the ball, your left hand needs to be in front of the ball. Maintain this position while you complete your swing. Using this stance helps you keep the club steady while swinging and prevents the ball from popping up when you hit it.
If you have to putt a ball across a large green, pay special attention to the speed of your putt. Try to aim for a middle target instead of going straight for the hole. This will give you a better chance of having your next putt be a short one by making sure that your current putt isn’t too short or too long.
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.
With the tips you just read, you can more successfully hit the golf course with confidence. As with any other skill, practice makes perfect. Take what you’ve learned here today, and swing your way to victory.
