Mark Twain had as much trouble with golf as anyone else. He quipped that the game’s entire purpose was to spoil his walk through the greens. 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. Knowing what clubs to choose is key when it comes to golf. You can use the following tips for assistance in your club choices.
This can help you figure out what can work best. It’s crucial to have a good stance, but what stance works, depends on your overall size, height and gender. Discovering your best stance does wonders for your game.
If you have the opportunity, ask a professional his or her opinion on a club, or certainly on a set of new clubs you are considering purchasing. This is something you should know because a professional will be able to aid you in club selection and will know what types have been created lately.
For beginner golfers, learning to grip the club properly is key. A common mistake many players make is thinking that a harder club grip means they can power the ball farther down the fairway. You should instead grip the club soft and firm. Hold the club like you would when holding an egg.
To ensure your posture is correct, wiggle your toes. If you can move your feet very easily, then you have not aligned your body properly enough to take your shot. You need to lean slightly into the ball in order for your feet to move just a bit. Make sure your feet do not move too far.
As you putt, you should strive to keep your left hand in front of the ball. Maintain this position while you complete your swing. This will minimize the chance the ball will skip off the face of your club at impact, and makes it easier to maintain control of your stroke.
If possible, play with golfers who are better at the game than you are, and study their techniques. There is more than one way to benefit from the expertise of a fellow golfer. Of course, not everyone can afford a one-on-one with Tiger Woods, but skilled players are almost always willing to impart knowledge on eager amateurs. Watching how they play can give you many ideas and they may just help you play stronger.
Most players benefit from using a hybrid club, regardless of their level of experience. Hybrid clubs are a mixture of wood and iron clubs. Like wood clubs, they feature a larger club head, but like iron clubs, they offer easier control of the club. Thus, a hybrid club should allow you to more easily hit the ball and control its direction. 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.
