You’ve tried a few games, but no matter how hard you try your golf game doesn’t seem to improve.
You’ve gone through several YouTube tutorials, but while the advice they give seems logical in theory, you just cannot seem to improve in practice.
When it comes to improving your golf game, a lot of people think about joining a club or working with a professional. But there are several improvements you can make right away and you’ll begin noticing a significant improvement in your game. We asked the experts at BombTech Golf to share what some of those are.
Schedule an Eye Checkup
While you might think you’re too young to have eye problems, studies have shown that one in 10 people aged 18 or more experience a decline in vision, even those who already wear glasses. Some people joke how they play better when they cannot see the ball clearly, but the fact is that checking your eyes from time to time can vastly improve your game. After all, vision is one of the keys when it comes to aiming and coordination.
Hold Your Position after a Shot
No matter what type of shot you’re taking, whether it’s a drive, a chip or putt, you need to pay attention to your finish position. Finishing in a good position means the swing has checked all the boxes – it was well-synced, had a good rhythm and speed. Therefore, focusing on the finish position will help improve your actual shot as well.
Straight, Not Far
While most focus on the distance of the ball, your swing path and a well-centered strike are key in developing better control of the ball. In fact, most times a high score results from hitting the ball offline, and not far. By mastering your swing path and ball control, your distance will improve by default.
You can find specialized solutions which can help you focus your game for accuracy, but you may also want to look around and find a golf club that can ensure that your balls fly straight without compromising the range.
Learn Your Limits
One of the most important factors in any golf game is our body. You have to be fully aware of what your body is capable of doing. The worst thing you can do is compare yourself to other players, especially professionals.
This will help you master your own swing and be the best in any game. When you know exactly what your limits are and what is holding you back, you’ll learn how to overcome these issues and get the perfect shot every time even with those limitations. Listen to your body and do what it says and you’ll be amazed at how better your golf game gets.
Improve Your Fitness
When talking about getting better at golf, most people think about improving their technique. However, your overall fitness and strength play a huge role in your game. If you are looking to hit your ball further, you have to get stronger. High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) can help you improve your speed, strength, and endurance and usually do not take up too much of your time.
Just Get Out There
They don’t say “practice makes perfect” for nothing. The best way to get better is to play more games, learn your limits, and discover your strengths. Don’t let a few bad games embarrass you and discourage you from working on yourself. The only way you can improve your game is through constant practice.
Find a team you feel comfortable around, practice, and don’t be afraid to ask for advice.
