I’m awful at golf – or at least I was when I started playing. Nowadays I’m still bad but improving. It is a game that you can get better at with enough practise. These are some tips which helped me get over some of my early problems.
You should tighten your grip on the club to be able to hit the fade shot. The grip is an often an overlooked and misunderstood aspect of golf. It is possible for anyone to hit a fade or draw shot, no matter how strong or weak their left hand is. Normally an instructor will you to use a weak left-handed grip for a fade, but not in every case.
If you find yourself slipping in your connection with the club during the swing, do not just assume it is because of a worn-out glove. The problem may be in your grips, rather than your gloves; check the grips for signs of wear. Replacing grips is relatively inexpensive and will improve your swing.
Golf clubs have a point known as the “sweet spot.” If the ball is hit at this point, it will fly true. You may need to experiment with your clubs in order to find your sweet spot. Furthermore, when you make this contact, your club should be at the top speed.
A great golfing tip for beginners is to be aware of your tee height. The height of your tee is very important to how you drive the ball. A tee too high or too low will result in inefficient, short, off-kilter drives. The golf ball should always be just above half the face of your club.
Before you start your round, make sure you know exactly what ball you are playing, sharing with your playing partners both the brand name and the number. So, if you hit a ball next to someone else’s ball, you know which is yours and you aren’t surprised by anything on the course.
If the morning, when the grass may still be damp, is your ideal time for a golf game, stay away from any sneaker-like golf shoe. While some brands offer waterproofing on these types of shoes, the majority of them will get soaked through when golfing in wet grass.
One way to check for correct posture before you swing is by wiggling your toes. If you can move your feet very easily, then you have not aligned your body properly enough to take your shot. You need to lean into your ball so your feet are able to move a little bit, just not extremely far.
Make certain that you hit your golf ball squarely with the face of your club. This assists the ball to travel in a completely straight line. If the face of the club is not square to the ball, then you risk slicing unintentionally. Vary your grip on the club and monitor the results until you zero in on a technique that allows you to hit the ball at that perfect 90 degree angle.
