How would you like to crush all your buddies the next time you hit the golf course? Well, if that’s what you want to do then you should work on your golfing game using these wicked ideas.
1. Improve your swing
The first thing you’re going to want to work on is improving your swing. The swing comes first in golf, and everything else follows it. So, you need to do as much as possible to improve your swing. You don’t necessarily have to get to the stage of being able to pull off amazing Bryan brothers’ trick shots. But, you should certainly work towards getting a smoother technique.
First off, it might be worth changing your grip. Most people use the ‘Vardon grip’, but you may find the ‘Interlocking grip’ is more powerful. If it is comfort you’re looking for, you might consider using the ‘Ten finger grip’ instead. Next, it’s all about stance and going over the basics of your back swing again. Improving your swing is the best way of developing your game and making you a better player.
2. Invest in a good set of clubs
You’re not going to get very far in your golfing game unless you have a good set of clubs. And to get these you’re going to need to shell out for them. It’s best to consult Golf Digest’s 2016 hot list of best golf clubs. An average complete set of clubs is going to contain around 12+ different clubs. There will generally be a driver, two woods, a few irons (or hybrid these days), a pitching wedge, a putter and a sand wedge. 14 clubs is the limit that golfers are allowed to carry so try to get around this figure. You will want to pick out your clubs carefully looking at weight, power, swing, accuracy, and other features.
3. Play when you’re not on the green
It might sound silly, but it’s important to keep sharp and try to play even when you aren’t on the fairway. How do you accomplish this? Well, there are a few things you can do that will help you here. You could set up a mini driving range in your backyard. The best thing to do would be to buy a golf cage or golf net online. You can visit www.usnetting.com and pick up the perfect cage from around $200.00. It might seem daft, but you can also play golf video games to help you. These may not improve your physical game, but they will certainly deepen your understanding of the sport.
Think about the different sorts of golf accessories you can get these days, and how they improve your game. Sure, gloves and shoes are important. And you always need things like sunglasses to make you more comfortable. But, how about the golfing gadgets on the market? You can get smartphone apps like Zepp 2 Golf Sensor that help you measure and improve your swing. There is also a range of great GPS watches. A quick look at golf GPS reviews will show you that the Callaway GPSync and Garmin Approach S6 are two of the best on the market. They can help you to track distance and location on the course in a simple yet effective way.
Golf is one of the favorite pastimes for the modern man, and it’s always good to work on your game. You want to get out there on the course and outplay all of your friends the best you can. And the way to achieve that is to work on your golfing game and try to get better all the time.
