Tee Off With These Great Golf Tips!
If you’ve just started golfing, you may find that your technique needs some improvement. Even if you’ve been playing for a while, you may have issues in your golfing technique that are standing in the way of you becoming a pro. Read this article to find strategies used by the pros to golf their best.
Quiet is the golden rule on a golf course. Setting up a swing takes concentration. Disturbing someone’s concentration with loud noises or distracting activity is considered extremely bad form on the course. When a golfer is approaching their shot, stay quiet and still and wait for them to finish.
For a powerful, long distance, consistent golf swing, a swing must follow through beyond the ball. For your longest distance shots, imagine a pole coming out of the ground where the ball is. At the end of your swing, your left shoulder should be past this imaginary pole, but be careful not to swing your hips to do it.
It is important to replace divots that you have made when you are golfing. Every golfer misses a ball now and then. If you do not replace the divots the course will quickly look horrible and be very difficult to play on. Replacing the divots does not take a lot of time and is necessary.
A helpful tip to golfing is to make sure that you are hitting with a clean club. The face of the club can easily get dirt on it and cause you to have unexpected results. Make sure all of the grooves are completely free of dirt and mud before hitting the ball.
If you are struggling to hit square shots even after you feel you have your mechanics flowing smoothly, consider the flex of your shafts. By testing out similar clubs at the driving range that have varying degrees of flex in the shaft, you may just find that a change in shaft is all that you need.
To ensure that you have a solid ball strike and the most accuracy possible during a golf swing, you want to be on-plane at the top of the swing. This means that as your club is extending back above your head, your forearm and spine should actually be parallel (right forearm for right-handers). Along with your left wrist and flat left elbow, you should form a triangle.
The best thing you can do to improve your golf game is to practice, stay positive and playful and have a great attitude. You may not be the best golfer, but there’s always room for improvement, and the great thing about golf is that the more you play, the better you’ll get!
When starting out, the best instructions to learn are to just do what feels comfortable. Concentrate on hitting the ball, do not worry so much where it goes, just consistently hit the ball. Once you can consistently hit the ball with nearly every swing, then go to a PGA certified instructor or to a friend who is a fairly good golf player.
Now that you’ve read all of these golfing tips, you’re ready to get out there on the green and try them out! Apply these tips and techniques used by the masters to get on your way to golfing success and start seeing your scores become dramatically lower. Good luck, and have fun!
