Tips for making golf sand shots easy

There’s nothing to fear about shots out of the sand.

I’ve found that old saying:  “The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself” really comes into play for golfers when attempting a sand shot.  I personally would rather have a sand shot any day than a hard pan lie or a deep rough near the green.

As with other areas of the game, you want to look at being in the beach as a good thing! Most pros think this way. Why? Because you have much more control over spin and the largest margin of error of all the shots in your bag. Sand is very forgiving.

This really is one of the easier shots in golf… it really is!  It is the one the shot in golf that has the most room for error with regard to where the club strikes the ground.  This knowledge, going into the shot, will give you great comfort when you think it.  Haven’t you seen the pros in a tournament talking to the ball and telling it to “get in the trap” when they know it’s going to miss the green?

Sand Shot tips

Getting out of the sand can be quite simple, if you follow these few steps. First,
use a sand or lob wedge, because they both have plenty of loft to quickly get the
ball in the air. And they also have some bounce, which lets the club slide through
the sand rather than digging into it. Second, ground yourself into the sand by
wiggling your feet until you won’t slip during the swing.

This also gives you needed
information about the hardness or softness of the sand and how far behind the ball
you’ll need to hit. Remember, you are not allowed to touch the sand with either the
club or your hand before starting your swing. With soft sand, try to aim about two
inches behind the ball. When the sand is firmer, aim about an inch behind the ball.

Finally, your left arm on the backswing should be parallel to the ground, then swing
through the sand to a balanced finish. Follow these simple steps and practice them.
And you won’t fear the sand any longer.

Golf Ball Against the Bunker Face.

You know this shot.  If you have played enough times, you have walked to a bunker
only to find the ball is up against a wall of sand at the edge of the green.  You
can’t use the great sand technique you have been learned.
Really this shot is not too difficult. It’s not too difficult because no matter how
hard to hit the ball its going straight up in the air!
Basically, plant your back foot, focus on the sand behind the ball, and smash your
club into the sand.  The golf ball should pop up in the air and roll onto the green.

Tips for how to putt better

Dropping in Those Long Putts

When faced with a long putt, carefully study the green for overall slope, individual
breaks, grain, wind speed and other factors that may influence your stoke.
Having decided on the proper target line, pick a spot along the line a few feet in
front of your ball and aim for that.

Once your feet and the face of your putter are squared to the target, begin to think
in terms of speed and distance.

Try to visualize the ball rolling along the desired path and into the hole. Then
make your putt with confidence. This is how to putt better!

Putt Like a Pendulum

When putting, your hands should always be slightly ahead of the club head and the
ball.
Your arms and shoulders should form a triangle that moves in unison during your back
swing and stroke-much like a pendulum.
Just slide the club back without breaking your wrists and the forward again. Be sure
to follow through straight along the line of your putt.

Place two clubs parallel to the line towards the cup on either side of the ball.
Check to see you are swinging your putter through a straight line.

Place a two by four parallel to the line towards the cub outside of the ball.  Check
to see you are swinging your putter through in a straight line.
Mark the sweet spot with a piece of tape (a half inch by a half inch should do it).
See if you can it the sweet spot with each putt.

Place 6 balls in a circle around the hole about 4 feet away.  Putt each one in
turn.  Can you make all six?  Remember to read the green before each.

In order to aim for the center of the hole, Place four tees in front of the hole
with enough room for a golf ball to squeak through. Try from two and four feet out.

For long putts, use the distance on the practice green.  Start with your short putt
routine and then hit three from 20 feet.  Then three more.  Then three more.  Are
they getting closer?
Remember 90 percent of long putting is judgement of distance.

Are you getting better yet?

**************************

Using three balls.

Find a straight putt at least 9 feet long on the putting green.
Start at 3 feet and putt each ball from the same placement.

If you make all 3 putts move back to 6 feet and so on to 9 feet. If
you miss any, you have to start over. Say you made the 3 at 3 feet
and now you have made your first ball  from 6 feet, and then you
miss the next putt. Start over at 3 feet.

Do this drill until you have completed 3 putts from 3, 6 and 9 feet
in a row.

Do this at least 3 days per week. You will be a much better putter
within 2 weeks.

How to make a perfect golf swing weight transfer

Weight Management

As I mentioned, 75 percent of the body weight is transferred to
the  back foot during the back swing. Through the downswing and finish,  the weight
transfers from the back foot to the front foot.

Too often, amateurs force this shift in weight by sliding and  swaying from side to
side during the back swing and downswing. This  is not necessary! With correct
footwork, you should automatically  make the correct amount of weight shift.
To get a feel for using your legs and correctly transferring your  weight during your
swing, try the following drills.

Brace Drill

Practice with your right leg butting against an object to get a  solid
feel for bracing your right side. In this case, we’re using a  bench. As you simulate
your back swing, you should feel your knee  pressing firmly against the bench,
creating torque and building energy.
If your right knee isn’t touching the bench during the back swing,  it means you’re
not shifting your weight correctly to the right  side. Keep making practice swings
until you feel consistent  pressure between your knee and the bench.

Drop Down, Choke Down

When you need to keep the ball low, use the Drop and Choke
technique. Pros can make setup and swing adjustments as conditions  change because
they have the luxury of practice.
For most golfers, the best adjustments are the least adjustments,  which is why the
Drop and Choke technique works so well.

*********************************

Eliminate Topping & Skying Shots with a proper swing weight transfer

The tee shot is the key to good golf. But two common mis-hits can  ruin your chances
for a good score. One is the skied shot, which is  caused by a steep downswing.

Position the ball forward in your  stance, just inside your left heel. Your right
elbow should be  relaxed and tucked close to your side. Your right shoulder will be
lower than the left and your weight slightly on your right side.  Start the club back
low, slow and slightly to the inside.

Now let  the club swing around as you turn.
Golfers often lift the club up  vertically, causing that steep downswing.

Finally, as
you swing  down, keep your right elbow close to your side and sweep the ball  upward
off the tee. Another frightful shot is the topped shot that  does not get airborne.

This is usually caused by a poor transfer of  your weight.

On your backswing, your
weight should shift gradually  to the right. On the downswing, it must shift back to
the left.  Your goal should be a balanced finish with your weight on the left  side
using your right tip toe as a balance point. Try these  pointers, and next time
you’ll find yourself in better position off  the tee. Isn’t golf grand?

 

Free Tips for Golf Swing

Free Tip 1. Straight Talk

Even the best players sometimes forget the first step to hitting any successful golf shot. You have to know where your target is. To drive the point home, I’ll interrupt students after they’ve set up to the ball and ask them to point at their target without looking up.
You’d be surprised how many times the fingers point right or left. Try this drill yourself to make sure you’re keeping your mind connected to the target on each shot.

Getting your shots to fly on line is the next step to success. Once you’ve started hitting your shots on line, you need to be able to control how those shots curve. And when you can do that, it’s time to learn how to make trajectory work for you. One of the fundamental concerns for golfers trying to break 100 is getting the ball started on the right line. Often, the problem is a poor swing path. Before you worry about fixing golf shots that are curving too much, get your ball started on your intended line. That makes the next steps to lower scores simpler.

Tips 2. Iron Play

A lot of golfers try to reach or use their hands to hit the ball  with their irons. What they don’t realize is that you need to  maintain a natural, free shoulder tilt or angle throughout your swing.  This angle is created because one of your hands is lower than the  other when you grip the club. So if you move your hands to reach or  catch the ball, you’ll change that angle and mis-hit your shot.

Concentrate on making a balanced movement forward to the target  with your body. As you move forward with your swing, feel your body  turn and face the target while keeping your balance. It’s as easy  as walking forward, and the golf club will naturally stay out in front  of you. By not reaching, your shoulder tilt will remain at the same  angle throughout the entire swing.

Try this drill and then take a  look at your position when you finish. You’ll see that your balance  has improved, and you’ll begin hitting crisper and more accurate  shots to the green. Free tips for golf swing will take easy when you try !

Tips 3. Swing through the Ball

An all-too-common mistake made by golfers is To let up on the swing after impact. It is essential  to maintain a firm grip and swing through the ball With good extension toward the target.

Tips 4. Golf Swing Myths

One of the biggest myths about the best golf swing is that you must keep your head down during the swing. Actually, what’s more important is keeping your chin up as you swing. This is so your shoulders can pass freely under your chin, allowing your head to remain still and focused on the ball. Another myth is the so-called swing to right field. This is to help some golfers achieve a square-to-square swing path. Instead, you should concentrate on not bringing the golf club inside of your target line too fast. Think of your swing as a ferris wheel, not a merry-go-round. Finally, make sure you follow through with your right shoulder over your left foot to complete the swing.

Use smart golf strategy for your approach shot

Short Siding, And How to Play Your Approach Shots!

“Hi!! A new golfer here. What does it mean to “short-side”  yourself? I’ve
heard the term, but not the explanation. Is  it good or bad?”

Well, anonymous new golfer, welcome. And to answer part one  of your question:
Short siding is when you miss a green on  the same side as the pin on your approach shot.

When you miss a green, putting  the next shot close enough to sink the putt is critical,
and that’s easier when you have a lot of green between your  ball and the hole
because you have more options for making  the shot — low running chips (Please
see HOT TIP  below!!!!) or high and soft, while if you are on the “short  side”,
your only option may be a high flop shot that stops  quickly, something that is
very hard to do for most people  and impossible for many. And we NEVER recommend
you try  that shot. Use another of those weapons in your bag.

Another thing to keep in mind is what direction the green  slopes and what the
landscape on the green between you and  the pin looks like. If the pin is near
an edge of a green  that slopes towards the pin, you may be better off being on
the short side, where you can stop a shot quickly hitting  into the slope, than
on the “long” side, where your shot  will run a long way downhill and be very
difficult to  judge.

One of the key things that determines how good someone is  at getting “up and
down” around the green is whether he/she  generally misses the approach shot

in a place where this will be easy.

This  means knowing how you generally mis-hit shots, and picking
your club and aim point so that a well hit shot is on the  green with a makeable
putt but a miss will leave you  someplace where you can easily get down in 2.
The aim point  and club selection will often not be at the pin and pin  high.

There could be a myriad of places that you want the ball to  land. And NEVER
fall for sucker pins. Sucker pins are those  that are in a well guarded
location, but tantalizingly  close. Hit your approach shot safe, and putt out in two strokes!!

***************

Where Should Your Miss Land??

One of the major differences between the Tour pros and the weekend  player is
that the Tour pro focuses on where he wants his approach shot “misses”  to land. For example,
if the green is sloped back-to-front, the  Tour pro will choose a club that will
make sure that he leaves his  approach shots below the hole so that he has an easier,
uphill putt for  birdie.

You should do the same thing. Instead of just walking off the  yardage and
choosing the appropriate club for the yardage, take a  second to study the green
to see how it’s sloped. If it is sloped  severely back-to-front, take one less
club or choke down on the club  a bit.

Or, if it is sloped hard right-to-left, aim well left of the hole  (assuming
the hole isn’t cut tight to the left side of the green  near trouble). By
leaving your approach shots on the proper side  of the hole, you’ll find
yourself three-putting or four-putting a  lot less.
