It’s no question that ever golfer is always working on improving their golf game and with so much golf information & resources available these days, it’s often easy to forget some of the more simple aspects of the game. Today I’m going to cover some simple, yet effective golf tips that can help you improve your golf game and ultimately start playing better golf.
The first thing I’m going to talk about the importance of being prepared for your round of golf once you head out to the course. There is nothing worse than running late or feeling rushed before a round of golf. This is the easiest way to distract yourself from the game. Choices Hack When your running late, you start spending more time thinking about what’s making you late and getting upset about it, then you do thinking about golf. Remember, golf is 90% mental and yet most golfers tend to over look the little things like this. Do yourself a favor and be prepared the next time you head out for a round of golf.
Next, I want to talk to you about stretching before your round. This is often over looked, but this can make a huge impact on your round. It is important to be loose and ready to go before you hit the first tee box. Now I’m not saying to spend an hour on stretching and ware yourself out, but a good 10-15 minutes is perfect. If you are too tense and tight, your golf shot will not be in sync and you are going to hook or slice the ball. Be sure not to over do your stretching either because if you stretch to much and tire your muscles out, you won’t be relaxed the entire 18 holes.
The last thing I want to talk to you about is practicing your long, short, and putting game before you tee off. There may be some golf courses that do not have a driving range, but I can just about guarantee you that ever course has a putting green. My suggestion, USE THEM! Once your done with your stretching and you feel lose, head over to the range and smack few, followed by some chip shots and then some putting. Just be sure to use the same clubs you are going to play with, and when practicing your putting, be sure to use the same balls you are going to play with.
