WHAT A GOLF BEGINNER SHOULD KNOW
Playing golf is fun. But not all people know how to play it. Simply because they think that it is difficult to play. But the fact is not like that. Playing golf is easy as long as you know the rules and you spend time for it. Of course, investing money on the best golf GPS, club, swing analyzer, push cart and other golf equipment is also counted. However, today we will not talk about choosing the best golf GPS or club or whatever but we will just focus on the most basic things you have to know when you start learning to play this wonderful game. It may be a little bit hard for you as a beginner but believe me, if you try your best, you will soon become a golf star in the future. A lot of people have succeeded in this sport and you can also do it.
So the first thing about playing golf I want you to know is the grip. Never overlook the importance of using the proper grip in this game. Right from the beginning, you should get yourself accustomed to it. Pay attention to your lead hand and your back hand. The lead hand is the one that is closest from the hole and the back hand, on the contrary, the farthest. Take the club with your lead hand and slide your back hand right below the lead one and then interlock the pinkie finger of the back hand with the pointer finger of the lead hand. Don’t try to grab your club like you are playing with your baseball bat. Remember to grip it the right way.
Next thing you need to keep in mind is your posture and approach. What is the right approach? There is no fixed rule for all people. Just make sure you stand comfortably. However, the basic approach is that you stand with your knees slightly bent. You can lean your upper body over the ball but don’t hunch it, keep your arms out but not too much. Pay attention to your legs and feet too. Keep the two feet away by the width of your shoulder with the ball positioned between the front foot and the back foot.knees slightly bent.

You already know how to grip accurately, you already know what is the right posture and approach. Now you gotta hit the ball. While you hit the ball, my advice for a new golfer is that you should keep your feet stable during taking away. And try not to shake your head and upper body but keep them still. It is very important. You should also pay attention to where the ball goes. And when you club is brought bac, your lead arm should be kept straight as much as you can. Rotate your hips so that your weight is transitioned to your back foot.
Those are the tips for golf beginners. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Feel free to be wrong and to learn more day by day.
