A helpful tip when it comes to golf is to make sure you understand which area you should tee off from. There are different color coded tees depending on your skill set and choosing the wrong one may lead to either personal embarrassment or an unexpected difficulty on the course.
Learn how to play golf! This is not only a fun and rewarding sport but in the business world it is an acceptable way to meet and communicate with clients and co-workers. You may lose out on a lot of connections if you do not feel comfortable enough to go out on the course.
Add power to your swing by using your body, not your arms. Lean in to power your shot. Turn with the ball on the downswing. This lets you use the power of all of the muscles in your body to get a better shot, instead of being limited to just your arm muscles.
If you are going to be golfing for fun make sure to spend plenty of time at the driving range. As the old saying goes, practice makes perfect. a bucket of balls usually isn’t very expensive at about ten dollars, so nothing should stop you from going every so often to practice on a bucket at the range.
When golfing with a wind, a common mistake is to simply hit the ball harder, which creates more spin and propels the ball upwards into more wind. Instead, hit it lower– adjust your stance so the ball is back further than normal, and use a longer club. This gives you a good, solid, low hit under the wind.
Once you have taught yourself to consistently hit the ball, next is to get your swing down right. Think of the club as the pendulum in a grandfather clock. Practice swinging your club from side to side like the pendulum. Remember, it doesn’t take a lot of force to drive the ball far. It takes consistency and accuracy when hitting the ball. People as old as 80 can out drive someone twice their strength because it is all about consistency and accuracy.
