6 TIPS FOR BETTER PLAYERS
Posted on May 17, 2019 by Rick Shiels
Hitting the fairway more often is the goal of all players. Even the best players in the world will miss the fairway from time to time, but if you can hit the ball straighter more often than your playing partners, you will have a distinct advantage.
To hit the ball straighter we need to understand why it moves from left to right (for a right handed player) and what we can do about it.

There are many tips out there to help you hit better shots, some of them work while others don’t! Below I have listed my top 6 tips which I believe will help you strike your irons better and play more consistent golf.
When it comes to golfing advice, you’ll be bombarded with a plethora of tips and hacks. It can be pretty overwhelming to know where to begin.
If you’re looking for a place to start, I’ve compiled a list of the best golf tips for beginners. Follow these tips and you’ll be on your way to improving your game in no time!
1. Hit down on the ball
This is perhaps one of the most important golf tips for beginners. Hitting down on the ball will ensure that the clubface makes contact with the ball first, then the ground. If you fail to hit down on the ball, at best, you’ll hit nothing but dirt. At worst, you’ll top (or skull) it straight into the air.
2. Focus on your grip pressure
One of the biggest things that influences your shots is how hard you hold onto the club. If you grip too tightly, you will tense up and lose power and control of your swing. On the flip side, if you grip too loosely, you may lose control of your club or even drop it altogether!
3. Keep your head still

Hi Guys! I wanted to start this blog to share with you a few golf tips and tricks I have learned over the years, in the hope it may help you improve your game.
I first picked up a golf club when I was 12 years old, and spent most of my teenage years trying to get good at a game that I had never heard anyone say is easy to master!
After several lessons with a local pro and hours of practice on the range, I eventually made it to single figures (a handicap of 9 or less), and am still trying to get scratch (handicap 0).
I hope you like my articles about the sport I love. If there are any topics you would like me to cover, or if you just have any questions about the game, please feel free to leave me a comment below or contact me via email.
The best piece of advice I’ve ever heard is: “The only thing that can go wrong with a club you are afraid to hit, is if you make a good swing and it goes straight.”
In other words, if you’re going to hit the shot, hit it like you mean it. If the ball doesn’t go where you want it to, that’s fine. But don’t half ass your shot.
Whether you are using a driver or an approach wedge, your goal should be to make good contact. Sure, there will be times when the results aren’t what you hoped for — but that’s not the point. The point is to make a good swing.
By making good swings consistently, you’ll develop trust in your ability to execute the shot. When this happens, all of your shots will go in the direction you want them to — and that’s when golf gets fun.
