Golf in the 70s – 7 Golf tips on how to improve your next round of golf!

I remember when I first attempted to play a round of golf, how frustrating it was and how much I disliked it. The only reason for my ill feelings was because I was very bad at it. I could not understand that, because I was very good in all other sports, like football, basketball and baseball. Why was I so bad at golf? So I decided to actually practice this sport and before long, I was getting better. I learned quickly that becoming frustrated when I hit a bad golf shot was a very big nono. So I then read a golf e-book and put these suggestions to practice.

Golf in the 70s – 7 Golf tips on how to improve your next round of golf!

1. PREPARE LIKE A PRO: Show up an hour before your tee time so you can check your golf equipment. Are your golf clubs, golf balls, golf shoes clean? STRETCH! warm up, then check your golf swing mechanics. Hit the putting green,then head over to the driving range. Now your ready to tee off!

2. STAY FOCUSED: All Through out the day concentrate on “the golf shot at hand”, pay no mind to past shots or future shots, or you will end up some where you don’t want to be. If you do hit a bad shot, (we all do) let it go or it will ruin your whole round, remember golf is a very mental game.

3. MAKE YOUR FIRST TEE SHOT COUNT! This is the most important golf shot of the day, and it will dictate how you play your round. Think about it, if you smash it right down the middle of the fairway your going to be enthused to play, if not your mindset will be one of doubt. So relax, have fun and believe!

4. READING THE GREENS: When your shooting the second shot you may need to figure out how the golf ball is going to roll, so squat down and take a look, this will give you an alternate view so you can measure distance and gauge the speed of the golf ball. If your foursome is hitting before you, take notice of how they played their golf shots, and adjust your play from their results.

5. DON’T HIT UP! Let it roll man let it roll! Almost all golfers make the mistake of chipping the ball high in the air, why? (I did this too) But really if you limit your back swing and punch it, you will find it way easier to gauge. Think about it; a rolling golf ball, or a bouncing golf ball!

6. PUTTING ON A DIME: When you are practicing your putting, go ahead and place a dime anywhere on the putting green, and drop seven or eight golf balls all around in different spots, then try to putt as close as you can to the dime from the different spots. A smaller object (the dime), will allow you to get a feel for the speed of the green, and allow you to find the “middle” of the cup. Remember 3 and 4 putting will always kill a good golf drive all of the time.

7. PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE: If there is one sport that you have to practice to get better at, it is GOLF! There are so many ways to fail, if you are not tuned in. Clearing your mind before heading out and visualizing a great round is a necessity for less stress and better golf. Putting, chipping, golf swing, balance all have to be considered. Remember even Tiger Woods needs to practice, and even he falls short sometimes.
