A day spent at the nearest country club can be both relaxing and challenging when you engage in a game of golf. For more insight into the appeal of this legendary game, keep reading.
Don’t bother renting yourself a golf cart, walk instead! Golfers who walk significantly increase their physical exertion and, therefore, the health benefits they enjoy from golfing. Walking will also help to keep you loose and your muscles warm.
The first step to mastering the game of golf is the correct grip of the club. A common mistake many players make is thinking that a harder club grip means they can power the ball farther down the fairway. The best grip is actually soft, yet firm. Hold the club with a very delicate grip, as if you were holding a baby bird or a child.
Always hydrate yourself and be sure to stretch before you start a round of golf. Staying in good shape can benefit your golf game directly.
Hold your club with a neutral grip. Holding the club too tight can cause your ball to veer to the right. If you do not hold your club tight enough, the ball will veer to the left. Use the direction of your shots to correct your grip.
Take a small snack rich in proteins with you, such as nuts for instance. Golf can make a person both mentally and physically tired. Your mind will be alert and your muscles will not get too tired during the 18 holes, thanks to the energy and protein from the snack.
During your drive, the back of your front foot should line up with the ball. For other swings, position yourself so that the golf ball is evenly between your feet. The exception to this if you are playing your shot from a slope.
Maintain the correct stance. If you don’t know if your stance is correct, try wiggling your toes vertically without your feet moving in the process. Your toes should move like this with some effort. It will be almost impossible to execute this movement if the weight of your body is positioned too far in front of the ball. On the other hand, it will be entirely too easy to perform if your weight is too far behind the ball.
Undoubtedly, a golf course provides a great environment for relaxing and enjoying life. Hunter S.
