It doesn’t matter if you are an expert at golf, or just a beginner who thinks that eagles and birdies are things that birdwatchers do. Golf is a sport of many opportunities, no matter what your skill level is. Before you play another round, read on for some easy ways to improve your skill and your score.
You can find flaws in your stance by using a toe-wiggling exercise. Try to take a swing, if you are having difficulty wiggling your toes while doing so, then you are leaning in too far in favor of the ball. Golfers should lean back until they feel some play in their feet to get proper posture.
Giving your toes a wiggle can tell you a lot about your posture when you are ready for a golf swing. If you have no trouble moving your feet, then you need to reduce the angle at which you are leaning relative to the ball. Lean forward, toward the ball. You should still be able to move your feet slightly.
A helpful tip when it comes to golf is to not take it too seriously. If you can learn to laugh at your mistakes, you’ll relax and play better instead of continuing to make them.
While putting, use your left hand to guide the ball by making sure it is slightly in front of the ball. Maintain this position as you follow through with your 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.
You probably want to bring a nice healthy snack to fuel your body and mind while you’re on the course. The game of golf requires full use of your body and mind which can be tiresome. The extra protein and calories from your snack will keep your mind sharp and help fend off muscle fatigue, keeping you going all the way through 18 holes.
One of the most important aspects of successful golfing is your stance; therefore, it is important to stand in the correct position. Your stance is the number one determinant of ball flight distance. If your body is in poor position chances are the golf ball will not travel very far.
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.
