The Secret To A Better Golf Game
A better golf game is achievable by any golfer. It doesn’t matter what your age is, how good a player you are or how long you’ve been playing. But the key to a better golf game may not be what you think.
The ‘standard’ approach to a better golf game is taking lessons; buying more equipment; and hitting hundreds of golf balls at the range.
Tip: During your drive, the back of your front foot should line up with the ball. The golf ball must be central and in between your feet during your swings.
Although, the above approach is not altogether incorrect…there is one crucial missing element. That element is your BODY! You swing those fancy clubs; you hit all those balls at the range; and you physically participate in the aspect of taking lessons.
The common denominator is your body. Do you agree? If you don’t, I’d like to hear you’re explanation of why not.
If you are following me, and think I’m remotely correct, then why wouldn’t you work on your body to play a better golf game?
I’m constantly hearing golfers say they’ve taken lessons, bought new equipment and pounded hundreds of balls but still have not seen improvement.
That’s the telltale!
That leaves just one thing…YOU.
Tip: Instead of struggling to try to overcome the problem, just figure out a way to work around it. You might find that the problem works to your advantage or that others view it as a personal quirk that you engage in while playing.
Don’t get me wrong…I firmly believe you need an understanding of golf swing technique, and golf equipment can help. But pounding balls just for the sake of doing it won’t help you play a better golf game.
Now picture this.
Tip: By experimenting, you can find the best way to stand while playing. Based on a variety of physical attributes, finding your proper stance may look much different than the best stance for other golfers you play with.
You do a few simple stretches and golf exercises daily and go out to play. You now realize you can make a bigger backswing with less tension; you have more clubhead speed enabling you to hit longer drives; and you are not worn out on the back nine.
Isn’t that worth the minimal investment in your time?
Tip: One unavoidable part of golf is that your ball will frequently get lost. If you have some expensive balls, you should save them for when you are golfing to impress someone rather than for fun.
To play a better golf game…you’ve got to take a different approach than what you are currently doing. One that gets to the root of the problem. The one that’s causing those mishits and inconsistencies.
You will be amazed at your outcome if you take this approach. You will finally play a better golf game.
