Tips to Improve Your Golf Game
Who couldn't use a little help with their golf game? We have you covered with seven tips to help you “fake it ‘til you make it.” Consider it our personal cheat sheet for how to nail those important shots.
1. Know Your Weaknesses. To do this, you are going to need to track your game. Simply make sure you have simple statistics like fairway hits, short game ups and downs, total putts, and greens in regulation, that sort of thing. From there, you can make improvements. You might consider employing the services of something like shotbyshot.com to help you track your stats electronically.
2. Improve Your Drive. Posture is important if you want to improve your drive. Make sure you have an athletic stance (your feet just wider than shoulder width apart). The position resembles a defensive basketball stance – just not quite as low.
3. Improve Your Chipping. Remember, the goal with the chip shot is to get the ball on the green with very minimal roll. This means using a wedge is typically the best choice if you are close. However, you can use other irons as well. Just make sure that you use more club than you think you will actually need to get the job done. There is always a tendency to underestimate.
4. Control Your Clubface. This is the single biggest determinant that separates the pros from the amateurs. Remember common mistakes. Most amateur golfers will open up their clubface too much on the backswing, or keep it open too long on the downswing. To combat this, simply assume a standard grip and try to twist your bottom half, or the right hand, so it is facing away from you during the backswing. Practice follow-through and solve your clubface control problems.
5. Read the Green. This is also crucial to lending a great product! It's all about predicting which way the ball will break when you make the putt. Remember, the later it gets in the day, there are greater tendencies for areas of the grass to lean towards the sunset.
6. Remember to Rotate. This is the engine for your golf swing, essentially. The speed and power come from swinging and rotating your torso, rather than your arms and legs. Given that you already know how to swing properly, make sure to address this mentally before you perform each swing. It will improve your distance and accuracy.
7. Nailing the Putt. There are a couple of keys here. The first is stance. Make sure it is solid, with your feet shoulder width apart (or a bit wider). Next, make sure you grip your club firmly (think of it like holding your toothpaste if you had the lid off, but not trying to squeeze any out). Beyond that, make sure your entire lower body is in a mobile position.
