Everyone who takes up the game of golf is looking to shoot a round of par or better.
Unfortunately, for most of us, that is just not going to be a reality, but there are many golf tips out there that will help you become the best golfer that you can be.
Most golf tips you get are not really very helpful for the average golfer but I have a few that will help lower your score no matter what your handicap.
The first thing you must do if you are really serious about lowering your score is to get clubs that are fitted to you and your swing.
Just because Ping has come out with a new driver does not mean you need to get it.
It may not be suited for your swing or your body type. Take the time and a little extra money and have your swing analyzed. Take that information and have your clubs properly fitted. This will insure that you have the right shaft flex and the correct loft on your clubs. Remember, you cannot score low if the club you are swinging is not the correct club for you.
Now this golf tip is usually overlooked by many as not relevant but it will help shave a stroke or two off your score. You need to use the correct ball for the amount of club head speed that you actually generate. There is a reason that there are different balls and it is because the will perform differently for different club head speeds.
For instance, there are very few golfers that should use the same ball Tiger uses. You just don’t generate enough club head speed to have the ball do what it is designed to do. Just like men should not use a golf ball designed for a lady because you generally have more club head speed than that ball is designed for.
And for the same reason mentioned above always use the same ball. Do not constantly change your ball. Many players just use whatever ball they dig out of their bag, this is not a good idea, because each ball performs differently and has a different feel. To get consistency in your game use the same make and model ball.
By doing this you will learn how the ball will perform for you. An example is your putting, for whatever reason certain balls just seem to roll differently and if you are continuously switching balls you will never get the correct feel for putting. If you learn how a ball will perform, you can easily shave and extra stroke or two per round.
These golf tips can be used for any golfer with any handicap. They are often overlooked but they will shave those extra strokes off your game. So have fun and keep it in the short grass.
