How to Improve your Golf Game

. October 10, 2017

Whether you’re a professional or a beginner, anyone can enjoy a game of golf. Golf is a dandy means to alleviate tension and stay athletic. No matter experienced you are, it is great to make efforts to get better at golf. Serious golfers love to ferment on the basics of the swing and shot, which contributes to “automatic” improvement that you truly don’t need to think about — until your move gets out of sorts.

How to Improve your Golf Game

Align the Clubface

One of the most common mistakes amateurs make is improper alignment. The right path to adjust your shots is to always start by first evaluating your target from behind the ball. This will give you a perspective of the entire hole and help you aim right where you want the ball to go. Secondly, before you get your actual position, gear up the clubface behind the golf ball and adjust it directly at the object. Do this before, not after, you take into your position.

Relax your Muscles

Loosen up and hold on your grip light. At the height of your backswing, make a slight pause and maintain a light grip through the cut. To sustain a weak handle, relax the sinews in your forearms and also your fingers. If you practice this, you will create a faster, brisker swing release through the ball impact. This will result in a longer drive.

Play with The Wind, Not Against It

Many amateurs fret about playing in the wind, but better players know how to use wind to their advantage. No matter how big a fade or draw you’re capable of hitting, it’s likely the wind will always bring home the bacon. Then what you have to do is to play with it! Lastly, when running in the wind, no matter which way it’s blowing, don’t think you need to swing any harder than normal. Simply take the fact that wind is messing up, and although it may be in an undesirable direction, the key is to avoid proceeding to war with it.

Rotate your hips vigorously

By energetically rotating your hips on the downswing you will bring your core muscles into play. This will increase club head speed, and therefore will result in a longer drive. Make certain you perform this in a controlled manner. Hold your foot anchored to prevent slicing the ball.

Play for More Break, Not Less

Better players know that, no matter how well you judge the speed and break of a putt, if you consistently miss on the low side of the hole, you’re never giving yourself a real chance. On the other hand, if you tend to miss more often on the upper side (the pro side) of the hole, once in a while, the ball may actually find the hole. The key is speed.  Next time you practice, find a breaking putt to the right, and then one that breaks to the left. Practice on both holes until your misses start trending toward the pro side of the hole.

The only way to improve your Golf is by deliberately practicing the above-mentioned tricks.
