So you’ve decided to take the plunge and you’re going to learn how to play golf.
Let me be the first to congratulate you on your decision.
Whatever your reason for learning to play, golf is the greatest sport there is. Built on honor, integrity and sportsmanship (embodied by The First Tee); golf is a window into a person’s soul. You can learn a lot about someone just by how they conduct themselves on the golf course. Being outdoors in the fresh air and getting some good cardio exercise also isn’t a bad way to spend 4 hours either. You may also want to keep a psychiatrist on speed dial, too. Golf can be frustrating and drive you to the brink of insanity if you let it, but let’s not get into that right now. The game is magical.
There’s no need to buy a book called “Golf Tips for Beginners” or anything like that, because I’m going to hook you up with some free tips. You’re welcome.
1. THE PROPER GOLF GRIP
Golf is like any sport in the fact it takes practice and repetition to become good. Before you can make a golf swing with a golf club you need to know how to grip it.
The first golf tip for beginners is the most basic and the most important. You can’t swing a club properly with the wrong grip. To start gripping the club, hold it in front of you at eye level with your right hand (assuming you’re right-handed). Now take your left hand and put the pad of your hand on the top of the club and close your fingers around the club. Got that? Great. If you want to do a test to see if you have it right, let your arm fall by your side and push the top of the club down, if the bottom of the club comes up, you’ve done it properly.
Once you have gotten the grip down, let’s move into the actual golf swing.
The Golf Takeaway
Your technique on the takeaway can make or break your shot. If you get the club moving away from the ball correctly, you set yourself up for a solid golf swing. However, if you compromise your form on the takeaway into the back swing, you’ll the see consequences in your ball flight. Before you even transition into the downswing, you are in a bad position and have a lot of fixing to do to hit a quality golf shot.
