Golf is a fascinating game, very relaxing and enjoyable. However amateurs often have a very hard time understanding the principles of the game. Understanding golf is quite easy, in fact amateur golfer can master the game within a little time. All you need to do is employ a few tricks and tips and you too can be a master of the game.
- Master the clubs
One major mistake that all amateurs is make is making the assumption that clubs are just clubs. Golf clubs are quite different and this is why they are many. They are shaped and designed to deal with the challenges that you may find on the golf course. For example, the long clubs are ideal for long distance shooting and the short clubs are ideal for the short course. This however is just the basic of the clubs, there is much more to learn.
- Work with the wind
Perhaps one of the greatest advice from master golfers is to use the wind. The wind can help your trajectory, move the balls faster and for a longer distance. Playing against the wind has the disadvantage of requiring much more energy as well as mastery. Against the wind the ball often loses direction, moves away from the gate. The winds helps an amateur player master the course much easily. Therefore stay confident in your game with the wind helping you.
- Have a strong grip
A slippery grip is worse than the wrong clubs. You need to practice your grip, fining the cost comfortable zone for yourself. Your thumbs and tiny finger need to be more comfortable. The problem comes in where the gloved hand, and an gloved have to work together. Normally the gloved hand goes under because it prevents sweat from reaching the clubs. Practices is the best way to reach the best and most comfortable grip.
- Make sure you have a right alignment and stance
Golf is not just about hitting the ball into a specific direction. The alignment is about measuring the ball and ensuring that you have the target in sight. Many amateurs make the mistake of ensuring alignment from beside the ball, however, the right alignment is made from behind the ball. Stand behind the ball, measure the target using the club and determine whether you are on the right path.
Also when playing many amateurs are emoted to change the stance after alignment. Make you are comfortable, and do not keep changing the stance the first option is probably the best, stick to the same.
- Have fun
Many people take golf too seriously. They forget it’s just a game, a game that you should enjoy. Even when winning or losing, what golf requires is just confidence and more confidence. The stance and alignment, the grip and even the prediction of the trajectory comes from the confidence. With confidence you can enjoy the game. When you make a mistake, do not panic instead start planning on how to correct the mistake. Panic makes the mistake worse, makes it harder to get back on track. Even when an error looks like it’s hard to correct, there’s a way out. All you need is the right mind to find the right path.
