Improve Your Golf Skills

  • Get fit: Modify your workout regiment to help you drive the ball further and prevent injury. Don’t forget to stretch your muscles prior to stepping out on the golf course.
  • Pick the right club: Most of the beginners choose a golf club based on length. But selection of the right club also includes things like natural shot tendencies, hazards, wind and whether or not hidden dangers lurk in prime landing areas. And most important, a good player always looks at what type of approach shot is to follow.
  • Expensive is not always best: Don’t fall into the consumer trap of believing that expensive golf clubs will turn you into a Rory Mcllroy. There are some very good sets that sell for a few hundred dollars that are equal in quality to the more expensive sets. First, visit any local golf shop and ask for a swing analysis and a recommendation for clubs based on your budget.
  • Align the clubface: One among the common mistake is improper alignment. The correct method to align your shots is to begin by first assessing your target from behind the ball. With this, you will aim right where you want the ball to go. Also, set the clubface behind the golf ball and align it directly at the target before making any actual stance.
  • Devote time for all parts of your game: Some golfers go the range and only hit their woods. But this is a big mistake, as most of the shots on the golf course are putts and chips. So, devote time to all these parts of your game every time you visit the range.
  • Improve your short game: If you don’t have much free time, then the fastest way to shave strokes off your score is to improve your short game. Have your American golf professional give you some drills to take to the practice green.
  • Practice and Play: Practice and play golf as much as possible.
