Most people think golf is quite a technical game with the scoring and knowing exact what type of club to use where. However, the sport is actually quite easy to understand, but a whole new level is required to play it well. The biggest thing with golf is that practice is required. You will not find a new player simply walk onto the course and hit like a pro without practice.
Anyone can be good at golf, most people need a few professional tips, but there is nothing wrong with that. These tips will simply give you guidelines on how to swing, hold the club and get the ball to go where you need it. At the end of the day, we recommend professional lesions to all players as it offers great benefit to your game.
In this article we will look at some of the key areas you need to understand with golf, which will give you a much better idea of how the game works and what will be required. If you have played golf before, you will know most of these, but you might just find yourself learning something new.
There are thousands of course around the world and most cities have at least 2 or 3 around them, so finding a course will not be easy. Once you get there, a fee needs to be paid and then you can go on the course. You will find each hole (usually 9 or 18 holes on a course) will provide a Par number. Usually ranging from 3 for a short course up to 6 or even 7 for the long difficult ones.
This Par number indicates the number of strokes the hole should be completed in for a professional player. This means a player who has played golf his or her whole life and knows exactly where the ball needs to go to line up the next stroke. In the beginning stages, have a look at this number, but don’t get down if you don’t make it. Most professional players sometimes struggle to reach that number.
Instead, look at the course and where the green is, try plan your game. Going straight from the tee off area to the green is not always possible. Try to plan your strokes by placing the ball in areas along the fairway to get to the green easiest.
Once you have visited the golf clubs and taken out a few thousand dollars you might find yourself confused about what each of these clubs do, but they are actually quite easy to understand.
The driver or wood is the club used to tee off. This club usually has a very large face and head, which is designed to put more energy into the ball. There are a few different blubs that can be used to tee off with, which depends on the distance you need to achieve. The clubs providing less distance have smaller faces and heads.
The rest of the clubs such as your wedge and irons are used to play on the fairway. These clubs don’t reach the distance on the wood, but are designed to lift the ball up in the area and get it to where you need it.
