You will bring the club backwards to the left, bending your left elbow and keeping your right elbow straight. Swing the club forcefully toward and through the ball. If you are right-handed, you will swing the club to the left. Once you hit the ball, follow through with your body turn and club.
Allow the club to continue to swing over your left shoulder. At this point, both of your elbows will be bent. Keep your eye on the ball throughout your swing. Look at where you want the ball to go before you swing.
This not only helps you strike the ball but also keeps your body from moving too much. If you are left handed you will swing the club to the right. Shorten your backswing with putting.
As you get closer to the hole, you will want to change your swing slightly. When you putt, for example, use a shorter backswing. Lightly tap the ball. The ball should roll on the ground instead of flying through the air. Continue your follow through and keep your eye on the ball throughout your swing, pitch, chip, or putt. Use the correct club. There are several different types of clubs in a set of golf clubs.
The driver is the club that is used to hit the ball long distance. This should be used on your first hit off the tee-box. The putter is the club that is used when your ball is on the green. Hybrid clubs have been developed recently that combine the benefits of drivers and irons.
Respect the rules of the course. While there are specific golf rules that are followed on every course, there are often course specific rules as well. Determine the order of play. Each player in the game should hit their first round. In this first round, it does not matter who hits the ball first from the tee-box. However, once all of the players have teed off, the player who is farthest away from the hole should hit first. One point will be awarded to each swing that it takes for you to get the ball into the hole.
An additional point will be added if the ball goes out of bounds. These boundaries vary from course to course. The player with the lowest score at the end of the game wins. Be conscious of your time.
Remember that there are other people on the course. Also, pay close attention to how long the course is taking you. If you are taking a long time or have fallen approximately a hole behind the group in front of you, allow the people behind you to move in front of you. Take a golf lesson. Learn golf from people who know and understand the game. This can be in the form of a formal, paid lesson or informal lesson with a friend.
Your coach will show you the proper way to hit a ball and which clubs are best to use in certain situations. Once you have a good grasp on golf basics, you should practice regularly.
You can practice specific steps, like teeing off, over and over until you perfect it. Be intentional about your practice. You can learn a lot by watching others. Watch golf videos online or tournaments on the television. Go to live matches. Try to adopt these techniques the next time you play golf. Hold out the club in front of you, flat and the way it was manufactured. If the clubface flat side is facing left, then it's a right-handed club. If the clubface is facing right, then it's a left-handed club.
Not Helpful 5 Helpful Your swing should not be much different except for putting and chipping. If you are really close to the green, then you should probably use half the distance of your normal swing. Not Helpful 2 Helpful Score is kept by counting the number of swings it took to get the ball in the hole. Penalty points are also included when you hit the ball out of bounds or into water. Not Helpful 2 Helpful 7. A flop is pretty much a high shot; this shot is designed to help players hit it close the the flag when there is little green to work with and spinning the ball is difficult and risky.
Punching is done when you are in a tight angle with something like a tree in your way. You punch it by hitting the ball really low so that it carries under your obstacle.
A pitch is just a chip shot yards or closer to the hole. Not Helpful 1 Helpful 5. About yards meters for men, and about yards meters for women.
