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.

Cure For Slice Shots: Fix Grip To cure your slice, practice this two tee drill to check if you have the correct grip
A Good Grip Every golfers grip should be unique but there are several fundamentals that must be followed in order to hit the ball straight
Backswing Shoulder Turn In a two plane swing the shoulders turn more level to the ground. With the one plane swing the arms swinging across the body turn your shoulders naturally, making the windup easier by keeping the body more centered with less lateral movement.
