Video Golf Tip | Order of play

Let’s talk about order in the game of golf, the order of play. On the first tee the person who has the honor is actually the person selected to hit first and that is done randomly. From that point forward it is always the person with the lowest score on the previous hole that hits first. Therefore, the person with the second lowest score on the previous hole will hit second. As we move out to the fairway it is the person who is farthest away from the hole who will hit first. This is the safest way to do things as well so that no one is in your way. However, when the pace of play is a little slow we can institute what is called ready golf. Ready golf is that as soon as you are prepared to play, so long as no one is in your way, then get ready to hit. That just speeds up play a little bit. Now, as we approach the green, if you are on the green and you are still farther away than someone on the fringe or in the bunker, you must still hit first because you are farther away from the hole. If you abide by all these rules the game will be more enjoyable and you will play the game a lot faster.

Increasing Distance: Balance the Backswing Have a 90 degree angle when turning the shoulders, bending the right arm and cocking the wrist for a balanced backswing
Ball Below Your Feet Bend at the hips, not the knees, and swing the club more up and down
Backswing: How Far Back? A backswing that is too long may feel like it is creating more power but it is destroying your fundamentals, grab a range bucket with both hands and swing it as far back as you can go, that should be where your backswing ends
