Golf has a storied history spanning 600 years. Golf has changed a lot over the course of time, but it is still relaxing and extremely enjoyable! Keep reading for some interesting insight into how to better your golf game.
When golfing, sometimes it’s better to walk, rather than getting a golf cart. You will get more exercise, which in turn is great for your health! By walking, you’ll also keep your body limber and your muscles warmed up.
It is a great idea to consult with a golf pro prior to investing in new clubs or other equipment. They will have intimate knowledge of all the clubs available, being able to select for you, exactly what you need for the best shot possible.
Use your body for more power behind your swing. A lot of beginners think their arms should carry the swing and end up with a weak swing by employing this misconception. A much better way to get that coveted swing distance is to move your whole body as the club moves.
When you get ready to swing, check your posture by wiggling your toes. If you are able to move your feet without difficulty, you are probably not leaning in far enough. Lean enough to allow your feet to move slightly. Leaning too far results in your feet moving too much.
When you finish one shot, turn your total attention to the next one. Do not let the previous successful or unsuccesful shot, or the upcoming water hazard, take you away from the hit you are about to make. Dwelling on past errors will just cause you to make more errors, so just focus on the present.
When you putt, have your left hand in front of the ball. Keep this position while you swing. This will help you maintain the appropriate grip on the club during your stroke, and will make it less likely that the ball will dart off of the face of the club during contact.
There are many reasons why golf remains a popular pastime around the world. Improve your game immediately by applying some of the above advice.
