Golf tips for a beginner number 1- How you approach the mental side of the game of golf is as, if not more, important than the technical aspects of the game. Ben Crenshaw - champions tour player and ex PGA player is quoted as saying "I'm about five inches from being an outstanding golfer. That's the distance my left ear is from my right ear".

Golf tips for a beginner number 2 - Learn how to play golf from the experts - know most people will tell you to get a lesson from the local golf professional, this can be very expensive way to learn, it is very effective and focused on your game and faults. But this is not the only place you can learn from an expert. Watching the tour on TV is a great way to see how the top golfers approach the game. The other way is to choose a great online or DVD teaching series and study the great game at your leisure. This is a very cost-effective and allows you to fit the learning around your schedule.

Golf tips for a beginner number 3 - When practicing think of the game from green to tee, not tee to green. I see most golfers when they are at the range or practice ground hit ball after ball with the driver and fairway woods. They seem to be obsessed with hitting the ball 300 yards plus all the time. The club you hit most shots with in any round is the putter and where you need to be the most accurate and controlled is under a 100 yards from the hole. So when you practice you need spend 50% of your time on or around the greens putting and chipping, 30% hitting pitch and chip shots from under 100 yards and the rest banging the ball down the range. If you do this you will see your scores drop very quickly.

Golf tips for a beginner number 4 - It's not speed but width that dictates distance. Its time for a bit of physics because hitting the golf ball is a lesson in the use of centrifugal force to generate speed and power. The power and speed, which is only important at the point of impact, is generated by the width of swing and the distance between the motor, your body, and the club head. This is why clubs get shorter from driver down to putter so swinging really fast and hard only serves to knock you off-balance which results in a poor shot. You need to swing slow and easy to allow your body time to get in the right places through the swing and use the correct muscles to generate power so you hit the ball the distance you need. An easy rhythmical swing will hit the ball further and more consistently.


This book will teach you how to get your scores down and keep them down and how to learn the rule of consistency so you can achieve excellence every time you golf.

Golf tips for a beginner number 5 - Enjoy the game! Sounds a stupid thing to say but to many golfers expect to play like the world number 1, and even they don't play great all the time, this is just unrealistic. Accept that you are going to hit poor shots and make mistakes. Don't get angry as this makes you tense your muscles resulting in you swinging badly and hitting poor shots - trust me on this one you can ask my playing partners! Keep a smile on your face, enjoy the challenge and take what the game gives you. If you do this you will find that you play so much better.

Mental Golf Tips - How to Improve Your Game


By Lee Cole  

The right mental golf tips can improve your game almost effortlessly. You see, here's the deal. Believe it or not, you already know how to play golf. Your body can already do all of the movements necessary to a great game of golf. It could before you even picked up a club for the first time. So, what's hanging you up mentally when you try to play golf? All you really need to do is to relax and let your body and mind take over.

Mental Golf Tips: Getting In Touch With Your Inner Tiger Woods

The problem with most golfers is they over analyze and over think golf. I'm dead serious when I say that your body already knows how to master this game. Think about it like this. Have you ever chopped wood? How about hammered a nail? Did you need a coach or a DVD to tell you how to swing a hammer when you picked it up? But for some reason you feel like you need all of this stuff when you swing a golf club.

Granted, swinging a golf club and hitting the ball straight is a little more difficult than hammering a nail. (Not much though.) But still my point is the actual motion is pretty much the same, and you didn't have to "learn" how to swing a hammer...And! You don't get nervous when you hammer a nail. (Or at least, I hope you don't.)

If you're like most golfers, you're allowing yourself to be nervous about nothing. So, that's mental golf tip one. Just think of this like hammering a nail.

Mental Golf Tips: Get Aligned

For our next mental golf tip, let me ask you this. If you always hit a nice straight shot, and if you always selected the right club and hit the ball the right distance, would you be so nervous about golf? Probably not. Hitting the ball straight is a matter of alignment. You want to be able to draw a line through your heels and have that line point straight toward the green. You want your shoulders lined up over your hips. You want the arc of your swing to follow this same line. Then you want the face of the club to be at right angles to this line. Get all of this "straight" and you'll not have problems with your swing.

Metal Golf Tips: Have Fun

Part of the problem with golf is we get so distracted with all the stuff you read about how to swing, chip, pitch, putt, etc. ad nauseum, and when we actually swing our bodies get tied up in knots. What to do about all of this? Let it go! One of the best mental golf tips I can give you is to quit caring as much. Quit the internal pressure and self-talk.

How? One way is to get out on the course and just play for fun. Just hit the ball any old way you want. Don't worry about how you look or how well you play. (Go to a course where no one knows you. Or do what a friend of mine does, play at night with a luminescent ball. Whatever it takes, just allow yourself the freedom to screw up.)
