Basic Golf Tips for Beginners – Practice,Practice

Introduction

So yea, I’m adding this post to teach you about the best golf tips for beginners for every club in your bag. Most golfers carry 14 cubs in their golf bag, they would include, your driver, a 3 fairway wood, a 5 fairway wood. Then you have your irons, they normally include a 4,5,6,7,8 and 9 iron.

Then you have your wedges, usually a pitching wedge, a sand wedge and a lob wedge. A lot of golfers will add what’s a hybrid club which is typically used for long shots from the fairway or a long par three holes. Then of course you have your putter which is used on or around the green.

Basic Golf Tip – The Driver

Your driver is the largest club in your golf bag and the club you will hit the golf ball the farthest. Most typically you will use your driver from the tee box on long par four holes and par five holes.

It is probably the one club that you will want to learn how to hit the best. Having long straight drives will give you your best chance to get your second shot from the fairway on to the green, thus giving you a better chance of making a par or possibly a birdie.

Driving is very important to your game so spending a lot of time at the driving range will certainly help you in this area. You can experiment with different ball positions in your stance. It would not hurt to take a short lesson to further improve your driver swing.

Basic Golf Tips – Your Irons

So once you tee off with your driver and hit down the middle of the fairway  (hopefully), your next objective on a par four is to hit your second shot on to the green or close to it in order to possibly make your par or hopefully a birdie. In order to achieve this you will need to determine how many yards you have left from where your ball is in comparative to the whole.

You will now need to determine which iron in your bag you will need to hit your ball the amount of yards you need to reach the green. Each iron in your golf bag has what is called loft.

Loft determines how high and how far each iron will make the ball travel. The lower the number iron you use the lower and farther the ball will travel, the higher number iron you use the higher and shorter the ball will travel.

Once again the best way to determine this information is going to the driving range and go all through your golf bag which each club and find out how high and far you can hit each club. Taking the time to learn this will most certainly help to improve your golf game.

Especially on par threes where you want to get your first shot on the green and as close to the whole as possible, The distance on par threes can vary from 125 yards to 175 yards, sometimes over water or some other type of hazard where hitting your shot becomes even more important. So please
learn how far you hit your irons it will make the game of golf much more enjoyable for you.

Basic Golf Tips – The Short Game

OK, so now we get close to the green and this is where your short game really comes into play. The short game brings into play your wedges in your bag, your pitching wedge, your sand wedge and your lob wedge.

Your wedges will come into play when you are say 50 yards from the green and closer. It can be from the fairway, or from a sand trap or from the rough somewhere around the green.

Most local public golf courses have areas where you can go and practice all different kind of shots with your wedges. Most have a sand trap to practice
getting the ball out of the trap and close to the pin.

Most beginner golfers see a sand trap and freak out, for some reason they think it’s a difficult shot.Myself, I would much rather be in a sand trap as opposed to being in some thick narley rough around the green.

Implementing this shot from the sand is really quite simple. Set your ball in the sand trap and draw a line in the sand about two inches behind the ball, now take your sand wedge and when you swing down try to hit the line behind the ball and not the ball itself, make a complete follow through and you will notice the ball just pops out of the trap.

As in all aspects of the game only practice will help you to improve your game.

Basic Golf Tips – Putting

Well I’m sure you’ve heard the old saying, You Drive for Show, You Putt for Dough.

Well no truer words have ever been spoken. Think about it, in an average 18 hole round of golf you probably hit your driver maybe 12 times, you hit you iron and wedges maybe 20 times, but yet you probably putt the ball over 30 times, so most of your time on the course you spend putting on the greens so does it not make sense you should spend more time putting than any other shot.

One of the first things you should do is find a putter you feel comfortable with. You can actually go to any golf shop and they will try out all the putters until you feel you have found the right one for you. I have been using my putter for twenty years now.

I just get it re gripped when needed. Another beautiful thing about putting is that you can practice it anywhere.You can practice at the office, at home on your carpet, or free at your local course.

I’m not going to get in to technique here because everyone is different, I will just add that if you don’t hit it hard enough to reach the hole you will never get it in the hole.putters

 

Final Thoughts

Remember golf is just a game and meant to have fun playing, remember about golf etiquette and proper mannerisms on the golf course and you will enjoy it much more.

Golfing Tips for Beginners – Equipment and Basics

Hello, i am writing this to try to help anyone who is interested
in taking up the game of golf but are not sure of how to go about getting started. At first one would think that it is too expensive to get into this sport but that is not always the case.In golfing tips for beginners i will help you on you beginning golf journey as cheaply as possible and loaded with tons of golf knowledge.

Basic Equipment you Will Need

Like i said, you do not need a lot of money to get started in this wonderful relaxing game of golf. If your really not sure if this game of golf is for you can start out with a basic starter set of cubs or even rent a set, but I’m sure once you get started you will become addicted to this awesome sport. Getting basic starter clubs will let you worry more about you swing more and not the clubs themselves.

Down the road as you get better at the game you can then go out and get yourself some better golf clubs. A good deal of golf equipment shops sell many golf clubs that vary largely in price. The basic set consists of 14 cubs, usually driver, couple of fairway woods irons, a couple of wedges and a putter.Other basic equipment you will need is golf ball, tee’s, and a golf glove.

Having the right equipment is a very essential part of the game choose wisely when buying your golf equipment.

Take a Simple Basic Golf Lesson

When you are first starting out with the game of golf it would not be a bad idea to maybe getting a starter lesson to begin you golf journey.Even if you have some buddies who are pretty good golfers they could take you to the driving range to give you some pointers in order to get you started.

 

Most people are under the impression that golf lessons are just to expensive but that could not be further from the truth. You could go to you local golf
course and get either a 1/2 hour or a 1-hour lesson quite reasonably.Doing this make you golf game better quicker but also lower you level of frustration.

 

Golfing Tip One

Golf has become very popular in the last few decades thanks to the likes of Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, etc. The beauty of golf is that you get to be outdoors, you get to spend time with good friends and to play a game that you can actually never perfect.

So, if you are new to the game of golf it is normally played on a nine hole course or most typically on an 18 hole course. The course consists of different length holes noted as par 3’s, par 4’s and par 5’s, that represents the number of shots you need to take to get the golf ball in the hole, If you were to get a 4 on a par three that is called a bogey, a 5 would be a double bogey and getting a 2 would be called a birdie.

Each player keeps their own score and at the end when all scores are added up the player with the lowest score would be the winner.Just remember if you are a beginner at this simple game please do not take this game to seriously. It takes years to get really good at this game, just go out and have fun.It’s just a game you outside having fun and not at work.

Golfing Tip – Golf Etiquette

Golf is a gentlemen s game made up of certain rules and regulations.Most times golf courses can be crowded, so you must know the basic rules and common courtesy.golf etiquette

Usually there will be a group of players in front of you and you should always wait until they are far enough ahead of you
so you will not hit into them with you shot. While you are waiting you should have you club picked out and be ready to take you shot when it’s you turn.This will help speed up the game.

If you find that you group is playing slow and holding up the group behind you either speed up or let the other group play through. When a player is taking his shot you should stand behind them and try not to make a sound, that can be very distracting.

If you take a shot from the fairway and you take a big divot of turf please replace you divot or fill it with a sand grass seed mixture found on many golf carts.When you land a shot on the green and it makes a dent in the green repair it with you repair tool.

When you finish playing the hole please replace the flag stick and proceed to leave the green so the next group can play, you can mark you score card when you get back to you golf cart.

Conclusion – Golfing Tips

There are of course many other rules that apply to this simple game of golf which i will get into at another time but for now these should get the through you first round of golf without embarrassing you or anyone else in you playing group.

Simple Golf Swing – Hit it Straighter and Farther

Perfect

Introduction

If you are already a golfer and you have picked up some bad habits that are effecting your golf game negatively, you probably picked them up when you first started playing the game of golf.

Well I’m here at simple golf swing made easy to tell you that fortunately for you, you can turn your bad habits into good ones thus creating a simple golf swing to hit it straighter and farther.

 

Improve Your Golf Swing Easily

The first and most important part of the easy golf swing is having the proper grip, The whole golf swing starts with the grip. You can find out more about the proper grip here.The golf grip

Another important factor of the golf swing is where you are aiming your body and club before you make your swing.

If you are not aligned properly the golf ball will never go in the direction you want it to, thus leading to bad shots.

To help this problem when on the tee box check to make sure your shoulders are aligned with the target line that you wish the ball to travel thus increasing your chances of the golf ball going straight.

Another problem I see many amateur golfers make is their wrist action, 90% of bad shots are a direct result of this problem. You must be sure that your left wrist stays flat in relation to your left forearm and your left hand. Also, never take your club back further than you shoulder will turn.

Trouble on the tee:

If you are standing on the tee box and you see trouble on the left, say like water or trees always tee your ball up on the side of the tee where the trouble is thus giving you a better chance of avoiding the trouble and saving you some strokes.

Simple Swing Driver Tips to hit it Farther

I know that like every amateur or weekend golfer they want to hit their driver as far as the pro’s do but believe me that is easier said than done.

I have subscriptions to many golf magazines and every month they have something that’s gives a tip like ( hit your driver 50 yards further ) but rarely does it ever work.

There is no quick fix because they never work long term. The only thing that will work long term is you working on yourself, that is getting yourself in the best physical condition that you possibly can.

You can go to the driving range every day and hit 100’s of golf balls every day, you can take lesson after lesson, you can buy a state-of-the-art driver but you can not buy club head speed and club head speed is the only thing that will allow you to hit the golf ball further.

So hitting more balls or taking more lessons will never do it for you. You can improve your technique but the only thing for more distance is your physical condition. Period.

Simple Golf Swing Effortlessly

 

How many times have you striped a drive right down the middle of the fairway and then tried to remember exactly what you did with that shot to be so perfect and then just can’t duplicate it, very frustrating.

A simple powerful golf swing is just not about swinging harder. I’m sure you have stood over your golf ball and said to yourself I’m going to crush this one and swung with all you had and, what was the result?. Probably hit it shorter or way off-line, right?

Like I said earlier, the only way you are going to get more yards with your driver or any other club in you bag for that matter is with a controlled swing with more club head speed.

If your body cannot physically make that optimum swing then you have no business swinging harder.

Stress

So what if you decided to get your body in golf shape.  What I mean by that is to improve your core strength, improve your flexibility,you will now be able to make a full shoulder turn in your back swing, thus building up much more torque which in turn will translate into your club exploding into the golf ball at impact, make sense?

You now have a power swing that is effortless and under control and you will be just killing it of the tee and the deck leaving your playing partners in awe and amazement.

So remember if you want a powerful but effortless easy golf swing you need to take care of your bodies condition first and the rest will follow resulting in a much better and more fun golf game.

 

Simple Golf Swing and Flexibility

The simple golf swing really is just a turn back and then a turn through, I mean it really just doesn’t get much easier than that, so why would you not want to get your core and your body as flexible as possible.

There are many core flexibility exercises you can do right from your home or office, after all it is the key to longer drives and fairway irons.

Sit in a chair and cross your arms in front of you and just start to rotate your torso back and forth as far as you can, start out slowly start rotating faster as you feel your torso loosening up, do this as long as you can and as often as you can, you will soon notice a change in the flexibility in your back swing and follow through.

The

 

The most important factor in a successful simple golf swing is flexibility, plain and simple. It has been proven that pre stretched muscles perform much better than muscles that have not been pre stretched.

I think this holds true especially with the game of golf. Golf is a power sport and many times during a round of golf you need all the power you can generate at certain times.

That is why your muscles should be in the best condition and as flexible as possible. Balance also is important to the simple golf swing which I will get into next.

Simple Golf Swing and Balance

Balance is very essential for implementing the simple golf swing. The first thing would be your set up. A good set up as you address your golf ball would to be in a very athletic position before making your back swing, this will make you have complete balance throughout the entire golf swing.

Even if your technique is slightly off if you are balanced you still have a good chance of making a good shot. I see a lot of amateurs get up to their ball and make a swing and try to kill it, therefore losing their balance and the golf ball goes all over the place.

As long as you can take care of having good balance the golf club is designed to do most of the work, along with building strength flexibility your are on your way to a much more enjoyable simple golf game.

Enjoy the Wonderful Game of Golf

About Robert

Hello and welcome to my simple golf swing made easy. Ever since I was a small child golf has been a passion of mine and i have purchased a lot of equipment in order to hone my golf skills and my enthusiasm for the game.

A little About My Golf Journey

 

Ever since I was a small child I developed a passion for golf.You see I grew up in a small county in Pennsylvania and my parents home was actually a short walk through the woods to our local public golf course.

There was also at the course a driving range where at the age of 12 I actually got my first job picking up golf balls from the range.

I guess the best part of the job was that when the golf pro was not busy he would give me and my friends tips on grip and swings and stuff like that.

 

Why am I Doing This?

 

I am doing this website blog because I know there are a lot of people who would love this wonderful game if they were just introduced to it.I was lucky enough to be introduced to it at very young age and for that I am truly grateful. All through my childhood we were able to get our homework done, grab a couple clubs and sneak on the course and play a couple holes.

Golf Does not Have to be Expensive

 

I think a lot of people are under the impression that they cannot get into golf because it is just to expensive to play, but that is just not the case.You can pick up a set of good used golf fairly cheap on sites like craigs list.

you can get refurbished golf balls fairly cheap at any wal mart or other stores. Over time I will be posting all kinds of golf tips and ideas that you can take to the golf range and practice on your own. I think when most people just try this great game they will just fall in love with it.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,

Robert
