Anyone can become a golfer. The important part is to focus on learning about the game and developing new skills. No one is born with the skills of a great golfer; even Tiger Woods took lessons. Read the tips in this article for some help on learning some of those new skills.
Everyone wants to be able to one or two putt the green instead of the old three putt. Usually this occurs when the first putt is just not fundamentally sound. This can happen when during a long putt you are concentrating on accuracy instead of distance. Aim near the hole and concentrate on distance. Then, you will have a better chance of actually being closer and can hit your next putt.
A helpful tip when it comes to golf is to make sure that you always keep an eye on your golf clubs while at the course. This is important because due to the value of many golf clubs, somebody else probably already has their eye on them and might take them at their first chance.
If you are trying to get more distance out of your shot you should point your toes out and widen your stance. Complete the back swing to put your club in the right position. Practicing these techniques will ensure that you will get more distance out of your golf shot.
Keep an eye on how high you are standing, because this regulates how high the ball will fly. Factors such as your stance and placing your hands lower on the club will make the ball have a lot less air, just as if raising them will make the ball go higher.
This tip will improve your accuracy when taking swings on the green. When swinging, make your right forearm parallel to your spine and your left wrist is flat, allowing your left arm to make a triangle. Aligning your arms like this will make sure that your ball strike is solid and increase your accuracy.
Generally speaking, the dress code for golf is “business dress casual”. You should wear comfortable clothes in subdued colors and natural fabrics. Your shirt should have a collar and sleeves. Your pants should cover you decently, and they should not be made of denim. You should wear properly fitted, clean golf shoes and socks.
When starting out, the best instructions to learn are to just do what feels comfortable. Concentrate on hitting the ball, do not worry so much where it goes, just consistently hit the ball. Once you can consistently hit the ball with nearly every swing, then go to a PGA certified instructor or to a friend who is a fairly good golf player.
As was mentioned, no one is born as a great golfer. You have to have a passion for the game and a willingness to learn. Having read the tips in this article, you have already shown that you have those attributes. You should be more than ready to go out, and have a great time playing golf.
