Strike a ball with the sweet spot of the club for perfect accuracy. Take the time to recognize where this ‘sweet spot’ can be found on each of your clubs in order to maximize your game.
During a putt, position your left hand so that it’s in front of the ball when you address it. Maintain your stance while swinging your club. This helps to keep the ball from bouncing too hard off the club face, and will also hold the club firmly in your grasp.
A long putt requires you to focus on the speed at which you will be hitting the ball. Although you may be tempted to directly target the hole, you’ll typically achieve better results by choosing an intermediate target. You will greatly increase your chances for an easy short putt if don’t overshoot or undershoot your first one.
A good swing is backed by the strength and motion of the whole body as rooted in your core and legs. Your body should swing along with the club and you should use your legs as a source of power.
Be sure that your feet are lined up properly when you begin your swing. This can help you better your golf swing. Start by ensuring that your feet are at a right angle to the location that you are aiming for. One common way to make sure your feet are in alignment with where you want to hit the ball is to lay your club in a way that it is touching the toes on both your feet.
Refrain from using a unnatural stance. Start off by practicing what its like without a club. Flex your knees, bend a bit at your waist and have your arms loose at your front. Clap your hands together, as if around a club. That’s the natural golf stance in a nutshell. If you feel uncomfortable, then you are trying too hard and you need to relax.
Make sure you don’t discourage yourself by golfing with people on a higher level than you. Select easy courses and partners who are at the same level as you when you’re starting out. You are only asking for trouble if you decide to step up to a challenging course while playing with several expert golfers.
Keep your eyes where you want the ball to go, and stand roughly four feet behind it. Factor in conditions like wind at this time. The more time you take to think out your shot, the better your aim will be. Moving forward to hit the ball, you will have more control over where you want the ball to go.
Now that you have taken the initiative to learn something new about the sport of golf, you can impress your golfing buddies (or that gorgeous pro shop attendant) with the information you’ve just picked up. Look for new ways to apply these skills to your current game, to make the game even more challenging and engaging.
