4 Top Golf Tips for Beginners
Have you decided that you want to delve into the world of golf? Golf has long been one of the most popular sports all across the world and no matter whether you are a complete newbie to the sport or a complete pro, everyone will enjoy playing this fantastic sport! The Sports Techie community blog has a long history covering the past, present and future of the golf industry, equipment and performance.
Here, we let you in on our top golfing tips for beginners that will help you impress everyone on the golf pitch and fool them into thinking that you have been playing for years!
Having the Proper Golf Grip
Just like any other sport, you won’t play one game of golf and suddenly be a pro at it. It takes a long time to become a really good golf player and you need to practice to develop your skills. The very first thing that you will need to know, however, before you start swinging a golf club, is how to grip it properly. To grip golf clubs properly, simply hold it at eye-level in front of you using your right hand. You can then take your left hand and place the pad of your hand on the top of the club. Then, close your fingers around the club. It is as easy as that!
Wearing the Right Clothing
Our final top golf tip for beginners is to make sure you are wearing the appropriate clothing on the field. When you are starting any sport, it can be extremely nerve-wracking and so you want to make sure you fit in with the rest of the crowd and have the right clothing on. This is where TGW comes in. TGW is your one stop shop for all things golf related. You can buy everything you need, from golf clubs, bags and balls to fashionable golfing apparel – then, you can get out onto the course and start practicing.
The Set Up to Putting
The second big tip we have for beginners to golf is to work on the fundamentals of putting. Putting should resemble the stroke of a pendulum and it should swing forward at the same speed as it swings backwards. To do this, you’ll need to make sure that your shoulders are level. Doing this will allow you to make lots more putts!
Make Sure You Don’t Chip
No matter how great a golf player you are, everyone misses the green from time to time, so the most important thing to remember here is not to beat yourself up about it too much. However, when you do this you are guaranteed to severely lower your score!
To avoid this, make sure you are properly set up and can carry out great recovery shots. If you have the ball too far back when standing you’ll decrease the loft in your club, therefore hitting down on the ball and only hitting it a little bit in front of you. Make sure to place the ball in the middle of your stance and put your weight forward a little, letting the club do most of the work and providing you with a great score!
Sports Techie, the weather is unpredictable this time of the year but it won’t be long until the cold winter season is behind us and playing outdoor golf begins again with the coming spring and summer temperatures and conditions.
Practice, practice, practice the fundamentals!
