Video Golf Tip | Getting Started In Golf

Hi, welcome to the game of golf. This is a great game you can play for the rest of your life. The object of this game is to start on a hole, there’s usually 18 of them. You start from a tee box and you try to get your ball from the tee box into the hole, in the fewest number of shots possible. On every hole, there are a variety of tee boxes, so that players of different levels can play together. Usually the longest players play from the back tees and then it progresses on up to the forward tees so that everyone can have fun. Come on, play along with me.

Playing a Fairway Bunker Choke down on the club, make a three quarter swing and pick the ball clean
Golf Posture and Stance Your posture is determined by your arm swing. If you swing up and down on a two plane swing then you should stand more upright. If you swing your arms around on a one plane swing then stand more bent over on the balls of your feet.
Baseball Cross Training Mike started his daughter out playing softball before she moved on to golf. The baseball swing is identical to the one-plane golf swing; the only difference is that in golf the strike zone is on the ground where your ball is.
