Video Golf Tip | Before Your Round Begins

Let’s discuss what happens at the golf course before you make that first swing. Let me preface it by saying, make sure you arrive at the golf course at least one half hour early because there is so much you have to do before you take that swing. First of all, you have to find the bag drop and drop your clubs off. Then you have to find the locker room, where you can change your shoes and bring your change of clothes. If you are playing at a nice club make sure you bring lots of singles so take care of the kids working at the golf course, tipping is essential, you will be treated a lot better if you do. Next you must check in at the pro shop and pay your fee and then you should go to the driving range. It is important to allow enough time to warm-up so you are loose, this will improve your swing and help you enjoy the day more because you will play better. If you don’t have time to warm-up at the range, check out Golf Link’s physical therapy area which will tell you how to warm-up if you have time constraints. Last of all you find the starter, see if the course is running on time, and make your way to the first tee. Make sure you get to the tee a few minutes early so you don’t have to rush to get to your first shot. Golf is all about playing without tension and having fun so give yourself enough time to be prepared to play.

Down In Deep Rough Take a lofted club, play the ball towards the center of your stance and open the clubface slightly
Reading Greens: Triangulation Triangulation is the best way to read greens, read the putt from behind the ball, from the low side and then from behind the hole
Straight Back & Through Putting Straight back and straight through putting is very effective when putting inside fifteen feet and requires that you keep the putter face square to the target line throughout the entire stroke
