Golf is considered to be one of the classiest games on the planet right now. The reason for this is simply that most people view golf as a game that only the rich can play. However, while this may have been how it was a few years ago, nowadays golf has become accessible to the rest of us. As a result, there are now many more people playing golf than ever before.

What golfers need to realize is that there are a few swing mistakes that lead to a lack of power in the golf swing, and these mistakes are definitely correctable. Improving your fundamentals will help you hit the ball further. You can be able to bench press a house, but if you have one of these swing faults, you will never see much improvement in your swing speed.

Many golfers slice the ball simply because their feet are not aligned properly. Check this before you do anything else. Next, check your grip. If you cannot see at least two knuckles on your left hand, you may have found the problem. Rotate your hands until you can see those knuckles. Now, check your right elbow. When the right elbow moves too far away from the body, it causes an out-to-in swing path that almost always results in a slice with cheap golf clubs.

Many new golf players seem to think that the short game is not important. The reason for this could be the fact that they view putting as something too easy with golf irons. Alternatively, some people may prefer perfecting the power of a drive as opposed to the finesse of a putt. Regardless of the reason, it is an undeniable fact that many beginners do not attach any importance to the short game.

Unfortunately, this results in these people reaching the putting green fairly decently but failing to put up a good score. There is no point in reaching the putting green quickly if you cannot put the ball in the hole. Therefore, while you practice your drives, you should also make sure that you practice your putts with taylor made r11 driver.

The keys for those who with a golf swing already developed or with a little experience is to ignore golf instruction not meant for you. Often times you will hear a pro give a tip to another golfer on the range, and it's for them, not you. If you try to use the tip, it may completely change your swing in a way you don't want to change it.
