Golf Tips - A Good Thinking Head Makes A Better Golfer
Golf is a wonderful game but we all want to improve a little bit more and for some a lot more. There can be many contributing factors as to why you find that you are not playing consistently every week or the fact that your handicap seems to be going up a notch instead of the reverse. We all need advice and starting with the basics that help even the lowest handicapper in the club.
On the tee box:
There is nothing like getting up on a tee box and letting fly with the perfect drive down the center of the fairway, well that's the way it should be. There are a number of basic errors golfers can make. Timing when hitting the ball is everything, too many golfers feel the need to smash the ball out of sight when in fact golf is all about placing yourself in position for the next shot....
Does Your Junior Golfer Need A Sport Psychologist?
"My son gets so angry on the golf course that he cannot perform in competitions". "My daughter gets so nervous when other people are watching her play that her game completely falls apart". "My kid hits it so well on the range, and then hits it all over the map in a tournament". These are the kinds of comments that I often hear from parents of junior golfers. Do these kids need a golf psychologist? No. Nobody needs training on the mental part of the game. I take the word need very seriously. I believe we need air and water and sleep and food. I certainly wouldn't suggest that anyone needs mental training, anymore than I would suggest that anyone needs golf lessons or physical training....
The Most Useful Driver Golf Swing Tip
A very important driver golf swing tip to constantly bear in mind whenever you are playing this wonderful game of golf, is that a huge percentage of the results and your score, depends on your earlier preparation and conditioning of the body.
These days, what you are able to do while already on the course and in a game is pitiful little and performance and results lean rather heavily on the work you have put in prior to entering the course for your game.
If you have been wondering why your game has been deteriorating so much in recent times, or why you always end up getting so frustrated these days on the course. The answer could be simply the fact that more and more of your opponents on the course are making better preparations than you are....
Is Golf Conditioning Exercise Too Strenuous
Is golf conditioning exercise so strenuous that most people will have difficulties going through them? Most amateur golfers and people who have not been through any golf exercise program in their lives definitely believe so.
Especially when you start to mention such terrifying exercise equipment as dumb bells and the likes. They quickly get a picture o a crowded gym filled with much younger fitter people making fun of them.
Yet the truth of the matter is that golf conditioning exercises are fairly easy to do and are far from being strenuous and too physically demanding.
In fact golf conditioning exercises are as strenuous and physically demanding as the golf game is. Nothing more and definitely nothing less....
Golf Schools Require Golf Fitness
Are you planning on attending a golf school on your next golf vacation? Don't expect to kick your feet up, relax with a cold beer and nap every couple of hours. Furthermore, don't expect to enjoy your learning experience unless you prepare yourself physically. Golf schools require at least a minimum level of golf fitness.
All golf vacation schools are not the same. But most do have one thing in common. You will swing a golf club much more than usual and this will put your body through more stress than a normal round of golf.
The last thing you want to do on your golf school vacation is to wake up so sore that you can not enjoy your next day of golf instruction. Also, if your body is sore and tired, chances are your mental capability for learning will suffer....
Choosing the Right Golf Clubs
Planning on becoming the next Tiger Woods? If so, the first thing you might consider is getting some new golf clubs. Choosing the right golf clubs can make the difference between spending your time on the fairways and greens and spending your time in the rough. Although famed golfer Ben Hogan once said, "The only thing a golfer needs is more daylight", for my money, having the right set of golf clubs runs this a close second.
First, I'll assume you aren't a pro. Otherwise, you probably wouldn't be here; you'd be out perfecting that already outstanding golf swing. For the amateur golfer, choosing the right golf clubs hinges on two factors - distance and accuracy - and, of these, accuracy is the more important....
Reluctant to Try Golf Instruction?
Maybe you or a friend had a negative experience with an instructor. It could have been a personality conflict or some other problem. Golf instructors are like college professors. Good teachers have the knowledge, but great teachers can explain it in a simple yet fascinating way. If you took a lesson in the past and didn't see immediate results, try a different instructor. Not all problems are easy to fix, but you should get a firm understanding of what you are doing wrong, why you are changing it, and what you need to do.
It is also possible that you just don't take the game serious enough. You might be perfectly happy with your game and just don't have the time to improve. Besides, golf is just a game....
How to Win at Golf
What's the point of playing sport if you don't want to win? You may try to kid yourself that you're playing for the good of your health or because you enjoy the sport, both of which would probably be true, but the real satisfaction and joy comes from winning.
If you don't believe me just study the attendance stats for a professional sports team which is on a run of poor results and near the bottom of the league table. Teams that win fill stadiums, losing teams empty them. People like to be associated with winning teams. We all like to win, it makes us feel better.
This is about how to win at sport, any sport, but particularly about how to win at golf which is my game.
There are certain actions and thinking patterns which are easy to learn which make a great deal of difference to any golfer's ability to win....

Squeezing a tennis ball for five minutes at a time is a simple, effective exercise that will strengthen your forearm muscles.
