How to start playing golf? 8 winning tips for amateur golfers

So youve always wanted to play golf but your boss never asked you on a game before? Don’t worry. Everybody can and should enjoy this wonderful sport. Sure, golf can be expensive and hard to learn but if you know what you’re doing you’re up for the time of your life.

When you want to play basketball all you need is’ well’ a basket, and a ball. But golf requires more equipment than just a ball. Like in any sports, golf equipment spins an entire industry and you can find anything from clubs to gloves, and they usually come with a nice price tag.

So here’s Tip No.1: Don’t spend all your kids’ college money on equipment until you know how to play and if you want to play. Don’t buy a 5000 dollar manatee leather club (it’s illegal!) instead, go for mid range sports manufacturers that sell 100 dollar clubs.

Even if you are a pro on the Pirate Mini Golf and you beat your children every time – it doesn’t mean you know how to golf. Tip No.2 will be: take golf lessons. You’ll find group lessons with golfers in your skill range and you might make friends to golf with. There are also individual lessons with a private instructor or your town’s pro golfer. While private lessons focus on your individual skills, they can be quite expensive and take more time than group lessons. Remember that after you get the basics – the real lessons are on the field.

Tip No.3 is to continue practicing at home. No, not in your back yard. Golf has much to do with technique and watching instructional videos can help a lot. You can also go online and find many tips and clips that can improve your game.

Tips No. 4, 5, 6 : Grip, posture and stance. The three essentials of golf. Grip means how you hold the club and the better you grip the better you play. Posture leads to a proper swing and maintaining balance is essential. Having a stable golf stance and footing will help you control the ball and get it where you want it to go.

If you don’t want golf balls flying at your direction, you better know Golf Etiquette and that’s our Tip No.7 ! Golf Etiquette covers the basic golfer’s code that will ensure everybody is having a pleasant time whether they are pros or amateur golfers. Golf Etiquette urges you to be patient and respect your fellow golfers; speak in normal voice and don’t shout or laugh too loud; check your ball number to avoid winning (or loosing) someone else’s game; don’t stand too close to the swing zone of other players and the list goes on and on.

Tip No. 8 is to simplify your golf learning process and get the reinforcement you need to sustain the positive advances you make. Work on your swing and short game, and dive deep into the mental aspect of the game, shoring up any weak links you may have found difficult to hurdle with previous instructional techniques.
