If you’re a golfer, or if you hate golf, you certainly don’t want to make any more mistakes than you already have. “How can I avoid this?” you may be asking yourself. This blog post will give you three tips on how to avoid making these mistakes in the future.
1. Don’t swing too fast
In other words, don’t try to hit the ball too far with each swing. You’ll end up hitting the ball way off target and will make your score worse. Make sure to take a few practice swings before each shot to get a feel for how hard you need to swing to get the ball where it needs to go.
2. Don’t aim too high or too low
The goal of golf is simple: hit the ball into the hole in as few strokes as possible. But many people make the mistake of trying to aim too high or too low when they’re hitting their shots, which makes it harder than it needs to be!
3. Don’t stand up straight; bend forward at your waist so that your eyes are level with the ball instead of above it (or below). This will help ensure that all your power goes into swinging through and not just at an angle away from where you want them going!
Every golfer has a favorite story about some aspect of the game that he/she doesn’t like. Whether it’s slow play, course design or the rules and etiquette of golf, it seems every golfer has an opinion on how to improve golf. But what if the things we think are wrong with golf are actually ourselves?
Here are three common complaints that golfers have about their rounds. What if you’re making at least one of these mistakes?
The golf industry is booming.
You’re making three critical mistakes that are holding you back from being good at golf.
These are the mistakes I see every day in high-handicappers and beginners:
1.Swinging too hard. (see “How to hit a driver”)
2.Not swinging the club on plane. (see “The 7 Planes of the Golf Swing”)
3.Not hitting down on the ball enough. (see “Compression and how to improve your strike”)
There are many other factors, like grip, stance, posture, alignment, path, release, etc., but in my experience these are the three biggest problems for most amateur golfers.
Let’s explore why each of these things is a problem and what you can do about it!
I’m going to be honest with you: I don’t like golf. I have never played it in my life, and I have no interest in playing it in the future. In fact, I find the sport quite boring and unappealing for a few reasons.
Golf is just plain boring. It has long been criticized as one of the slowest sports to watch. In between shots, golfers go off into their own little world to focus on their next shot or putt while the rest of the players are just standing around waiting for them. This lack of action can make golf very tedious to watch. To me, watching grass grow sounds like a more exciting pastime than watching golf.
Golf is too expensive to play. For starters, you need to buy your own set of clubs, which can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars depending on what kind you get and where you buy them. Next up is the cost of booking a tee time at a public course, which costs an average of $45 at most public courses (or $105 if you want to play at Pebble Beach), plus another $20 for a cart if you don’t feel like walking (which most people don’t). Then there’
You’re not taking advantage of the benefits of golfing.
Golfing presents an opportunity to network and build business relationships with colleagues and clients in a relaxed setting.
Many business deals are made on the golf course.
There’s no better way to spend time with your family and friends than playing a round of golf together.
Golf helps you get into shape and stay fit.
You’re not getting the right equipment for your game.
Using cheap clubs with bad grips will negatively impact your performance on the course.
You also need to make sure that you have the right clubs for your level of play, as well as the right club head design, shaft flex, shaft material, and grip size.
You don’t know how to choose the right equipment.
It’s easy to be overwhelmed by all of the options available in today’s golf market, but choosing equipment doesn’t have to be difficult if you know what to look for in a club.
You can start by deciding what type of club fits your game best (for example: drivers, hybrids, irons, wedges).
Then you can narrow it down
