Ask any golfer if they have achieved perfection in their game and you will find out that they are always looking to improve in one area or another. The challenge for many golfers is they become overwhelmed easily because they simply can not understand why they were so great on week and then the following week they had their worst game ever. The key to improving in golf is mastering the basics before you ever attempt to get outside your comfort zone. Here are a few tips for improving your golf game and enjoying your time on the golf course more often.
Improving your golf game is about mechanics, and nothing is more basic than getting down your swing. The problem many golfers experience is that they have the swing down one week, but the stance is off. Then one week the stance is perfect and they forget to keep their head down. To improve each day you must focus on one area and basically work it until it becomes second nature. When your difficulty is keeping your head down each swing, purchase a golf net so you can easily take swings at home each night and perfect your game. No more excuses about late nights at work or rain, take out your clubs and drive the ball at home with your head down over and over again.
Getting the ball to land in the target area is a challenge for many players each week. Some weeks the ball lands on the green every time, where other times you simply can not get it near the pin. The problem here is how you address the golf ball. When you stand ready to swing at the ball, the ball will only go exactly where your swing is aiming. Take a quick look at the intended target area, and make an imaginary railroad track from the ball to the target. Now position yourself so when you take a practice swing, the club rides along those tracks. When you can imagine the tracks and picture the ball riding along those rails, you put yourself in a better position to swing right at the target.
Getting practice on different golf courses can really help to improve your game. Playing at the same golf course gets old and boring quickly because some golfers lose the challenge and thus their game suffers. Being able to play at some signature courses by Robert Trent Jones and Jack Nicklaus would surely help but are usually too costly for the average player to afford.
