3 Golf Tips For Beginners

Looking for the best golf tips for beginners? (A lot of advanced golfers forget this as well, or just don't know it) You've come to the right place! There is no argument that golf is very popular. It may not be one of the events in the Olympics but whenever there is a tournament, you can expect to see a lot of people watch both in the course and on television. You can be just as good as the pros someday if you follow these golf tips for beginners.

When you play golf, don't just hit the ball as hard as you can and hope that it will make the ball land near the hole. Unlike cards, this is not chance but proper technique is involved to make it happen.

This may not happen every time because there are things beyond your control like the wind and any obstruction that lay within the path but you can just imagine how well you can do if the conditions are just perfect.

The #1 golf tip to do well when you make a golf swing is..

to learn how to control your body. In this game, how you raise your arm to the time that you let your club hit the ball is important. It is not only about strength that makes the ball travel far but the recoil effect.

So how do you achieve this recoil effect? This is done by not turning your body too much when you start from your right to the left. There are various aids to help you out here like working with a heavier club, getting someone to watch you, practicing in front of the mirror and recording how you swing with a video camera and playing it back.

The #2 of my golf tips for beginners is..

When you turn from one side to the other, keep your hands relaxed the entire time. If you are unable to do that, you put a strain on your muscle making it hard for you to achieve the shot you desire.

To make this work, remember that the arms are an extension of something bigger because the power does not come from here but from your abs and hips which happen to be two are the largest muscles in the body.

#3 tip

Make it a point to always hit the ball right in the center. That way, you are able to divert it to the direction you want it to go. So you know where the ball is going, keep your eye on this until you send it flying through the air.

Aside from working on the upper body, don't forget to work on your footing. For that to happen, make sure both feet are flat on the ground so you are able to transfer the weight from the right side until it passes a little over your left shoulder.

The golf tips for beginners mentioned are not hard to do. It just takes a little bit of practice so that you are able to maintain consistency each time it is your turn to putt on the green.

Just remember that when you make the first putt, you must have a relaxed grip on the club with your feet flat on the ground so you are able to swing from the right to the left with a good back swing and follow through.

From there, your ball will land within yards of the hole making it easy for you to put it in and move on to the next hole. This would take more time than anticipated if you did not make some adjustments in your golf swing.

Key Golf Tips to Remember If Your Game Gets Off Track

How many times have you gone to the driving range and hit shot after shot perfectly? "Finally!" you would say to yourself, "I get it…I can't wait to take play my next round of golf!" You rush home and scribble down a list of key notes for your own "definitive swing" and know if you simple stick to the principles on that list, then you are destined for golf stardom. Soon afterward, you play your next round. Four hours of slices, fat shots, thin shots, hooks and shanks later, you leave the golf course frustrated. During your round, you went through your long list of notes and nothing seemed to work. You say to yourself, "why can't I take my practice range with me to the course?"

This scenario has happened to all of us, including tour golfers, teaching pros, advanced golfer and novice golfers. However the difference between pro and advanced golfers and novice golfers is that when their golf swing inevitably goes awry, they do not go through a laundry list of golf tips to fix the problem. The golf tips that they do turn to, however, are rather simple set of tried and true golf tips to minimize the damage, relax the body and continue through the round. It is after the round when pro and advanced golfers work on their swing mechanics.

So when you are struggling with your golf game mightily and racking your brain on all the things you can be doing wrong (which results in more confusion and tension and even worse shots), here are a few fundamental golf tips that can really improve your game as you play, even if your golf swing has gotten wildly off track.


You can have the best golf swing in the world, but if you are too uptight and introduce tension into your swing, you are doomed. The majority of errant golf shots are simply the result of tension in the swing. So, when your game is going downhill, take a few deep breaths and relax. To check that you are relaxed, here is quick golf tip. Check your grip. On a scale of 1 to 10 where 1 is "loose" and 10 is "tight," strive for a 5.


If you find you are hitting the ball short, fat, thin, left and right, then on your next shot, relax, take more club, shorten your swing and simply ensure that you are making solid contact with the ball. Don't worry about the distance of the shot, just re-engage your confidence and the feeling you get when you make solid contact. Do that for a few shots and you will be amazed at how quickly your swing gets back in line.


If you are spraying your shots everywhere, check your tempo. Are you bringing the club back too fast? Did you hurry through your shot? Is your body and weight transfer out of sync? If any of these conditions apply, then what is ailing you is your tempo. So, before your next shot, slow your swing down and take several practice swings, focusing on clipping the grass. Think "Slow Back, Fast Forward" and work on getting your body and swing tempo in sync.

Chances are when you were hitting the golf ball like a tour pro on the range, you were already incorporating the golf tips above into your swing without even knowing it. So, when your swing goes awry on the course, if you remember to relax, ensure solid contact and re-establish your tempo, your golf game will get back on track in a hurry.
