There are plenty of good beginner golf tips already posted here, but I wanted to give you a tip that really helped me when I was starting out in golf.
I started on the driving range (as most beginners do before trying to play on an actual golf course) and could never get the ball to go straight with my driver. I had received golf swing lessons and advice from golfers of various levels about how I ‘should’ swing the club.
I spent so much time focusing on trying to swing the golf club correctly that I wasn’t focusing on what the real goal of the golf swing is. Finally, an older gentleman golfer with many years of teaching experience asked me what I was trying to do? I told him I was trying to hit the ball straight.
He then asked me how I planned on doing that. I started explaining what I was doing through my golf swing. He stopped me mid-sentence and said, “How do you plan on hitting the ball straight?” I started describing my swing again.
He stopped me again and asked me, “What the goal of my swing was?” I told him to hit the ball straight. He said, “No! That is the result of a successful swing. But the goal of the golf swing is the have the clubface contacts the ball squarely. That’s it.” He told me that my swing didn’t matter as long as the result of my swing was to have the golf clubface contact the ball squarely.
At that point, I stopped focusing on the various parts of my swing and just tried to “hit the golf ball as squarely and cleanly as possible.”
This advice helped my game a lot.
I hope it will be really helpful for Thine.
