Beginners Guide To Putting

2008-08-06T17:21:58.984-07:00

Beginners Guide to Putting by Noor AzmanAs you can imagine, one of the most important things that you can do to improve your golf game is improve your putting skills. While it may seem impossible, simply practicing and working to improve a few minor things will greatly improve your skills. Once you have learned what you need to do, practice the skills until you have them mastered. Remember, a good putting skill will ultimately translate into a much improved long shot as well so taking the time to practice your putting is very important.You are of course going to need to practice to improve, but the exact skills that you need to practice tend to vary from player to player. As a general rule of thumb, there are three things that you need to specifically focus on in order to get the best golf game possible. The first skill is ensuring that your swing is proper so that you will contact the ball exactly in the middle of the club head. If you are not dead on the center you will never be able to master putting. You simply cannot hit the ball from the side of the club head and expect it to go straight. No matter how long you practice, this is not possible and will result in plenty of frustration over what you are doing wrong.Once you have worked to improve hitting the ball from the very center of the club head you need to move onto tonsuring that you always hit the ball in a straight line to the target. This means if the ball needs to go 2 feet away from you towards the lake, you would not want to aim the ball towards the tree beside it. You may think this sounds a bit strange, but many people do not squarely approach the ball to the target. They then stand around and wonder why they are missing their shot. Even if you are off by just a fraction, this can seriously alter your putting skills because the ball is not going to go where you want it to go. You will likely need to practice this point a lot, most people do not realize when they are just slightly off center from the target. Yet even the slightest difference away from the target will result in a missed shot and an increased handicap. Work on this by ensuring that you take plenty of time to practice. This is even a skill that you could practice in your office, or bedroom at home using a small home putting kit. However, going to the driving range is not going to help you here so avoid them if possible while you are working on this skill.Your last skill that you need to work on to improve your putting skills is working to ensure that you are accelerating the club head when you are actually coming into contact with the ball. Many players make the mistake of slowing the club down right before they actually hit the ball. This will cause you to lose the momentum that you need in order for the ball to make it to your target. Working to make a conscious effort not to slow the club down will usually be sufficient in order to improve this skill and give you some improved results.Noor Azman is the owner of Golf Mart.

Golf Stance Tips

2008-08-06T15:47:40.965-07:00

By: Robert Partain

Many newer golfers (and a few older ones, too) have a tendency to misalign themselves when they take their stance. Normally, what they will do is aim way right of the target and they do this for a reason. Players who are misaligned from the get go and aim right are usually players who try to swing with their arms. When they do this the ball will almost always take off to the left. So what they are doing with this "right side" target trick is trying to fix a problem before it even happens!

(object) (embed)


In theory, this shouldn't be a problem...but this is not theory, it's golf. When an "arm swinger" forces his ball back on the fairway by overcompensating his alignment, he thinks he's doing himself a favor. But on those occasions when he actually makes a good, solid full body swing, his ball zips off into the trees on the right or into a right side bunker and he gets mad, and what's worse is that by using this misaligning method he's never going to reach his full potential as a golfer.

These players need to work on the basics of their swing, using their body as a whole and not just their arms. But they also need to know what their alignment is.

So how can you (or anyone else for that matter) see what your alignment is to the target?

Well, here's a simple and very effective tip to determine what your target alignment really is.

Take a stance (your usual stance), aim at a target that you would hit at, and then lay a club down on the ground from toe to toe. Now step back about 8 or 10 paces behind the ball and club that you laid down and sight down the club. Sighting down this club will reveal your alignment.

If the club is a bit left of the target, then you're fine. But if it's to the right of the target, you are out of alingment. Simple but effective.

If you discover that you are out of alignment (that the club on the ground is pointing to the right of the target) then you need to work on squaring up your stance.

Being square to the target is one of the most important tips in golf. Every ball you hit will be effected by this stance--either in a good way or (if you're in a misaligned stance) a bad way. It really is that simple.

Now when you are certain that you are in a square stance, hit a few balls. If the ball goes way left of the target, you know you are pulling it by trying to use too much of your arms. If the ball goes way right, you know you are allowing your body to slide too much through impact.

By being in a square stance and evaluating a few practice shots, you can determine a lot about your swing and those areas that you need to work on.

An introduction to Golf for the Adult beginner

2008-08-06T15:12:16.981-07:00

By: Matt CanhamCopyright 2006 Matt CanhamEvery day more and more people are taking it up for the first time. I was once a beginning golfer myself and I remember the frustrations of learning the swing and playing well. And that was with a Golf Pro Father.There are a lot of books and other information products available for established golfers, but not a lot for adults who are brand new to the game. Amongst all the tour talk, long drives and 400cc drivers, it seems beginners are left out.Golf is a great game providing a lifetime of enjoyment and when you finally achieve a certain level of proficiency, a whole new element of the game appears, ensuring there is always a challenge.Many schools offer an introductory 4 hour class - usually for around $320 - on the basics of golf, but you are better off to work on those yourself, then pay for lessons when you are comfortable with the basic knowledge. You won't be effective until you have mastered at least the basics, so by doing it at home, by yourself can remove much of the embarrassment that is often felt by beginners.I've also seen beginners made to play rounds of golf way too early in their development. The result is a bad experience that can, in some cases, turn them off golf forever. A much better strategy is - you guessed it - get the basics down first.Now, there are many opinions on the golf swing but we can agree that without doubt, the most effective, not to mention quickest way to improve is to study, then practice what you have studied.You've heard it all before - there are no short cuts... Well, for golf it is especially true. Study and practice will get you there. Repetition of the skills and the swing will help develop your game, playing will help you develop the magical quality called 'touch.'Having the right knowledge is the key.Just as there is a technique to hitting a ball in tennis, or throwing a football, golf has a correct motion which must be learned. The swing can be broken down into phases to assist with learning where the body should be for each phase of the swing. The sooner you can do this, the sooner you can start to enjoy playing the game of golf.Here are some of the basics you need to know in order to get started.The game: etiquette - You need to know about the game and the things you shouldn't ever do on the golf course. It is a game with rules of conduct. This is listed first, because respecting the traditions of the game is vital.The swing - The fundamentals of the movement and how to repeat it. Knowing the plane the club should swing on and getting familiar with where things should be at the various stages of the movement.The grip - The point of contact between the hands and the golf club takes some getting used to - I am yet to meet a person who doesn't think it feels strange at first.The address position - How to line up with the ball for both hands and feet.The back swing - The check points to ensure a correct back swing and proper setup for the Down swing.The down swing - Knowing how it is initiated and where the club needs to be at impact.Club and ball positions - Where you should play the ball in your stance for different clubs.The short game - Handling shots around the green, including basic putting technique.Difficult lies - The adjustments you need to make for a non-level lies and other tricky situations that exist on the golf course.Rules of play - The most common encountered rules on the course.Most people start out in golf with no knowledge wh[...]

How To Increase Your Golf Skills Overnight!

2008-07-30T17:17:25.500-07:00

If you are a beginner golf player who has decided to take up the challenge of learning the game with the hopes of enjoying the sport for many years to come, you might want to consider taking a few golf lessons.

With someone teaching you the ins and outs of specific golf instructions, you will have an extra set of eyes which will help you get some of the golf swing positions right, which is not very easy to check on by yourself, even if you had a mirror.

What Makes A Good Golf Instructor?

Finding the right golf teacher that is best suited to your learning style is important. A good teacher should be able to demonstrate his lessons to you in a clear and easy-to-understand method. A decent teacher will be able to take stock of your current skill level and then break down your swing in order to make the proper adjustments needed.

A good golf instructor will be able to position you with the golf club so that you can truly understand how a certain swing should feel in your hands. He or she will be able to analyze your shots and make a proper diagnosis of any problems that exist.

Are Golf Lessons Worth It The Price?

Taking golf lessons is not mandatory. However, consider taking a few lessons early on in your learning experience as a wise investment. Not only will your skill level increase at a rapid pace, you will save money which would otherwise have been spent on a new driver or damaged clubs.

Other benefits of taking lessons for beginner golfers include:

1. Having all of your questions about golf answered by someone who knows the game.
2. The benefit of having good habits ingrained in your game from the start.
3. Your self-confidence will increase.
4. You will learn techniques and efficient practices which would normally take months or years to learn on your own.

Even The Pros Take Lessons!

Just to give you an idea of popular players that still brush up on their game with professional coaches, here is a small list to get you motivated:

1. David Leadbetter is a golf teacher who has worked with Charles Howell III, Ernie Els, Nick Price, and Nick Faldo.

2. Butch Harmon is an instructor who has worked with Tiger Woods, Greg Norman, and Justin Leonard.

3. Hank Haney specializes in distance and flight of the ball and has worked with Mark O' Meara.(image)
