Doing this will allow you to zero in on the stance that helps you hit the ball most accurately. Proper stance is essential, but it is not the same for everyone. The better your stance, the better your game.
Before you swing, check your stance by wiggling your toes. If a golfer ready to swing is unable to wiggle their toes easily, then they are leaning in too much in the direction of the ball. Ideally, your stance should allow for just enough backward lean to allow for movement in the feet.
When you are putting, you should address the ball with your left hand ahead of the ball. Maintain this position as you follow through with your swing. If you do not incorporate this technique, you run the risk of having the ball bounce off of the club, greatly reducing your chances for an accurate putt.
When you finish one shot, turn your total attention to the next one. Don’t let the success or lack thereof from previous shots or upcoming hazards break your focus. Getting hung up on a mistake you’ve made or celebrating a great shot for too long can ruin the rest of your game. Good or bad, it is in the past, so keep it there by putting it from your mind.
Develop a good position to improve your overall skills. Your position can influence how far the ball goes. If you want the ball to travel a decent distance, you need to find the balance between bending over and standing up straight. Both slouching and standing too tall can negatively impact your ability to hit the ball.
With the above tips, you are hopefully feeling confident enough to begin golfing. The more you know about the sport, the more enjoyable it becomes. With that in mind, get out there, and try your hand at this legendary game.
