To paraphrase what Mark Twain infamously once remarked, good walks are spoiled by golf. Golf can be an incredibly frustrating game, particularly when the ball either lands in a sand trap, or goes flying off in a different direction to that which you desired. It would be fantastic if everyone had a caddy of their own to choose clubs for them, but this is not the case. Key to becoming a better golfer is being able to choose the right clubs. Keep reading for a handful of useful tips.
Doing so enables you to determine your proper and most successful stance. While appropriate stance is important, you must remember that what is considered proper for one golfer may not work for another. Perfecting your stance is the first step to improving your overall game.
One of the first things you want to get down when learning golf is the proper grip for all of your clubs. Avoid the urge to squeeze the club as tightly as possible when hitting the ball. Instead, the club should be held loosely in the fingers. Hold the club like you would hurt a hamster, strong enough to hold it, light enough that you won’t crush it.
Use your body, and channel energy to get a good swing. A lot of beginners think their arms should carry the swing and end up with a weak swing by employing this misconception. Instead, try to follow through with your whole body.
Golf clubs have a point known as the “sweet spot.” If the ball is hit at this point, it will fly true. Instead of practicing with only one club, you should try each one to discover the best way to hit that sweet spot.
When you putt, have your left hand in front of the ball. Hold this position as you swing the club, maintaining it throughout your stroke. This will stop the ball from leaping off your club when you hit it and keep your club in proper position.
When faced with a really long putt shot, concentrate on the speed you use to hit the ball. Don’t aim directly for the hole. Instead, carefully read your putt, then aim directly at a target between you and the hole. This will help you to moderate the speed and direction of your putt, preventing a painful overshot or too short of a shot.
There’s nothing like hybrid clubs for improving a golfer’s game. You will be able to strike the ball squarely with the large head of the club; however, a hybrid club gives you more control when compared with a wood. Hybrid clubs have the potential to become the single greatest improvement that golfing has seen in recent decades.
