Golf- Here Class Stands Out!

Golf- Here Class Stands Out!

GOLF- here class stands out!

If you are not a golfer, then you are not a golfer. It’s the beauty of this game in which players dress like gentlemen, behave like gentlemen but they are not gentle with the golf ball. They toy with it, caress it and at times hammer it fiercely. Here is it for you- the game that has made many gentlemen into big celebrities. The game that looks simple but one needs to be highly precise in order to achieve the peak of it.
Everyone can play golf. It’s all about having fun time with friends & family. But professional golf stands at a much higher level that non-professional. One needs to have eagle eyes and a brain as sharp as a knife in order to be a professional player. This game loves you back. It develops a class that just stands out effortlessly.

To be a good golfer the roots of the player must be dug deep. One should have deep knowledge of the rules and regulations of the game. One needs to handle pressure both physically and mentally at the topmost level. This game is all about fun and respecting your opponent. If you can’t do it then you are in the wrong sport. Just go and play Rugby! Sportsmanship is something that should always be shown.

Well, many players learn the game easily but when it comes to competition most of them crumble like a cookie. One should read the game well in order to succeed. He must know himself. He should not be reluctant to work on the weak parts of the game. In sports a player himself is his best competition & this is no different in case of golf. Competitors are really in competition with themselves and the environment, not each other.

Time management & discipline are something that is paramount to achieve success in the game. If you want to perform well competing you need to spent lots of time practicing, no matter how well you play or how successful you have been over the years. One must feel good about his gears. This way you will be confident in your approach, and we know that confidence leads to success.

Top level of dedication and commitment is required of you want to shine on competition day. One should be fresh and relaxed both mentally and physically to ease off the pressure that is created in competition. One should believe in his abilities and should be in a positive state of mind going into the game.

Play the game with full energy and never give up even if you are trailing in the earlier stages of the game. Undoubtedly the best competitor of this game, ‘Tiger Woods’ was once quoted saying ‘stay committed’, and he meant it. Whether he lost or won, he remained cheerful & this attitude has always paid off for him.

Golf is a class game and true class never tries to stand out…It just stands out!

5 Steps To Improve Your Golf Game

5 Steps To Improve Your Golf Game

5 Steps to Improve Your Golf Game

There are very few golfers that do not feel that they can improve on their game. While there are the very select few that are born with a natural talent that allows them to excel at golf, they still understand that from time to time they need to touch up on the fundamentals. The five steps that will be discussed below, are designed to help anyone improve their overall performance.

1. Footwork
Ensuring that your feet and your body are properly anchored behind the ball will help to increase your driving distance. The foot behind the ball is the one that needs to be anchored. For right-handed golfers, it will be their right foot and for left-handed golfers, it will be the left. Many golfers will lift their foot too soon and lose a large amount of power in their swing.

2. Elbow Placement
Keeping your right arm, or left, close to your hip, will ensure that your body is driving your arms and the club through impact with the ball. This reduces your hands from causing negative interference with the shot.

3. Club Performance
Hitting the ball as hard as you can is a mistake many golfers make. Golf clubs are designed around technique and form, not so much around power. Concentrating on the mechanics, such as foot placement, follow-through on the hit, will inevitably produce a better, longer shot. Relax, and let the club to its job.

4. Check the Grip
When gripping the club, golfers should relax and maintain a light grip throughout the entire swing. This will lead to a faster swing through impact and will generate a long, accurate drive.

5. Shorter Is Longer
Using a short and controlled back swing will result in a longer drive. Many golfers bring their club back too far on the backswing and causes them to lose control of their club. A controlled backswing will generate more power while still maintaining control of the club.

 

Going From Amateur To Professional Golfer

Going From Amateur To Professional Golfer

Golf is one of the most exciting sports throughout the world. It is not new, with documents showing a 1457 Act of King James II of Scotland prohibiting it being played. Further research shows Mary, Queen of Scots, playing golf in 1567 and Sir John Foulis, a lawyer, recorded playing golf at Musselburgh Links in 1672. A Company of Gentlemen Golfers of Scotland wrote the first rules of golf in 1744. It was in 1779 that the game came to the United States.

Many times, people who are serious about the game are interested in becoming a professional. Professionals have the opportunity to become instructors or a regular participant in various tournaments throughout the country and abroad. This job requires serious training and discipline.

Having skills in playing the game as well as information regarding the latest rules, clubs and balls is essential when planning to become a professional. Many in this profession start out a very young age and progress through training and competition games. Being able to devote a maximum amount of time to practice is a way to develop a low handicap or become a scratch golfer. This will allow you to compete in amateur golf tournaments, working up to the state level.
