    Improve Your Golf Game In 5 Simple Steps

    Golfer Thinking

    1. KNOW YOUR YARDAGE

    Before you take your shot it's critical to know your yardage. You'll need to ask yourself:

    • How far am I to the flag?
    • Will the club I'm using produce a shot that's too far or too short?
    • Is there water or a bunker on the green?
    • Is there a false front* or a hazard short I need to look out for?

    Keep in mind that aiming at the flag is not always the best play. A pin location may not be in the center of the green. In this case, aiming at the center of the green is the best option.

    *A false front is an area of the putting green that is part of the green. Angled or sloped, the false front repels or cause balls to run off its surface.

     

    2. VISUALIZE YOUR SHOT

    Visualizing your shot is critical. Think about how high or low you need to hit to hold the green. Also, take into account any elevation change. You must picture your shot in your mind's eye before you hit the ball.

     

    3. SELECT THE APPROPRIATE CLUB

    This seems like a no brainer but there are several factors to take into account.

    • What kind of lie do I have?
    • Is the ground level or uneven?
    • Is the ball in the fairway or in the rough?

    To get the best results you need to play within yourself, i.e. know your limitations. Don't hit a 3 wood off of the fairway if you're having a bad day or if you don't play often.

     

    4. TAKE A PRACTICE SWING

    Practice swinging before you actually hit the ball. This will warm you up and give you a feel for what you're about to do.

     

    5. COMMIT TO THE SHOT.

    Take a deep breath, grip it, and rip it! Any uncertainty will cause an uncertain ball flight.
