A famous mark Mark Twain quote can be paragraphed as “You might as well take a walk, rather than playing golf.” However, no matter how poetic a wordsmith can paint the game to sound on paper, actually stepping out onto the course and playing can be incredibly frustrating. You may even fantasize about getting a personal caddy to help you choose your clubs. To become a much better golfer, you need to know which clubs are best. The tips that follow can help you in the future.
Each golf club in existence has it’s own “sweet spot.” When you hit your ball squarely with the sweet spot on the face of the club, your ball takes off with perfect accuracy. Get familiar with each club’s sweet spot. When you practice, experiment with each of your clubs to find this spot. Hit the ball with the sweet spot as you swing your club down.
During a putt, position your left hand so that it’s in front of the ball when you address it. Keep this position while you swing. This technique will give you a smooth stroke instead of striking the ball too hard.
Speed is a critical factor when you are trying to make a long distance putt. Choose an intermediate target rather than the hole. This will give you the best chance of success for your putt.
Put your entire body into your swing to get a powerful shot. While you swing keep your upper body loose, and try to generate your swing’s power from your mid-section and legs.
Use a neutral grip on your golf club. Lacking a tight enough grip on the club means your ball will often cut to the right of its target. By the same token, an excessively loose grip will pull the ball leftwards. You can correct your grip based on which direction your ball takes.
Your feet should be lined up properly. This is among the most effective things that you can to get a better golf swing. You want to line up your feet perpendicular to the direction you want the ball to travel. You can check that you are doing this correctly by putting the club parallel to your toes; the tip of the club will be pointing towards the ball’s potential path.
Hybrid clubs offer the best of both worlds, improving shots for golfers of all levels. These clubs utilize a larger head than an iron which allows the wielder to hit more effectively. At the same time, it is also easier to handle compared to a wood. Many golfers over the last decade agree that one of the biggest positives that they have made to their game was the addition of a hybrid club to their bag.
