Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Sure you do. Anyone who plays golf is working to find ways to shave strokes off their game. Maybe they are beginners frustrated with their lack of improvement. Maybe they are club players who can't seem to play well enough to win the club championship. Or maybe they are just the typical weekend hacker who wants to finally beat the other three golfers in their Sunday foursome. No matter who the golfer is, they want to know how to play better golf.

So which are you? Professional golfers work harder than anyone to make sure that their game is at its best when the big tournaments come around. What are you trying to peak for?

Whatever it is, you have to make sure that you practice as much as possible. The importance of this activity cannot be overstated. Practice may not make perfect, but it will make you better. Getting out to the range and just working your swing so that you can repeat it over and over can be the key shaving off strokes when the club championship comes around every year.

Or, if you are one of those just trying to beat your playing partners, a quick session at the range before you tee off could be just what the (swing) doctor called for. Any improvement can be the key to squeaking out that long sought after victory.

If you can't seem to find a way to improve on your own, it might just be time to call up the local club teaching professional and schedule a lesson. You know you've thought about it many times. It can be a tough pill to swallow when it comes time to scratch out a check, but the money is well spent if it means less strokes on Sundays.

Lastly, what is the state of your equipment? Are you using balls that you fished out of a pond? Are you swinging clubs that would have been high tech in your grandfather's day? If so, it's time you upgraded. Want to know why your playing partners call you "Shorty?" It's not because of your height. It's because they out drive you on every hole. If that sounds familiar, maybe you need to check out the latest technology in golf clubs. Think it won't make a difference?

You should get on the internet and read up on the latest and greatest in scientific breakthroughs on the links. You might be surprised. Find a chat room that is devoted to golf. There you will find golfers of all different handicaps talking about what piece of equipment is the most important thing in their bag. I promise you, ever player has a favorite club that they would never tee off without.

There are a lot of things you can do to improve your game and now that you know how to play better golf, you'll have no trouble improving. Just take this advice and then smile at the looks of surprise on your playing partners' faces.
