How Am I Suppose to Lower My Golf Handicap

If you are as keen a golfer as me you will almost certainly be on a permanent quest to lower your handicap. It is one of those sporting quests to which there seems no end, while at the same time there is no end of advice available as to how to achieve your goal. As an avid golfer I believe there are key points that when mastered correctly can make all the difference to the amateur golfer's desire to play fewer strokes during a round.

In addition to the grip, it is very important, it is essential that you perfect the takeaway. The takeaway is an important part of a better swing because it will dictate the tempo with which you swing, which we all know is very important to playing better golf. Your arms and shoulders should move back in sequence while keeping your lower body stable.

Shooting better scores starts with the short game with cheap golf clubs. Their is nothing more frustrating than hitting quality golf shots all day, but at the end of your round really having nothing to show for it due to poor putting and short game performance. We have all been there, I know I have and even the greatest player on the planet Tiger Woods addresses this concern from time to time. To really get a better short game you need to do what I call "up and in" drills. I do this by playing 18 holes on the practice green using just 1 ball. What I do is find 6 easy chips, 6 medium difficulty chips, and 6 really hard chips, my goal is to get at least 13 out of 18 balls up and down, meaning a chip and a putt. This will dramatically improve your short game.

If there is just one part of your mental game you focus on, it should be just before you are about to hit the ball with clubs from ping g20 driver for sale online store. Try to develop a quiet mind sharply focused on the target only without allowing any other thoughts to enter your head as you are about to strike the ball. Instead you need to trust that you have trained your swing and that the ball will go where you want it to go.

Practice is a good way to lower your handicap as long as you are practicing the right way; most golfers do not know how to practice. Listening to advice from other golfers might be OK as long as it is good advice; most of the time a tip from a buddy will not work for you. Taking golf lessons might help, but they are generally very expensive - often costing $75.00 per hour. Buying off-the-shelf books and videos generally does not work because there are so many alternatives and it is easy to get confused.

You must be willing to dedicate yourself to improvement with taylor made burner 2.0 irons. Ideally hitting a few range buckets a day and practicing the short game each day would be great, but for most working professionals this is simply not an option. However, effective practice can take place in the home with a mirror and a golf club, just check your positions in the mirror to get a feel for the proper swing mechanics, this will greatly improve your golf swing and does not take a lot of time to practice.
