Use The Sand Wedge Putt

The sand wedge putt became popular back in the 70’s after Lee Trevino popularized its use. Today, many players use the sand wedge putt, but golf beginners and amateurs find the wedge intimidating. The sand wedge is one of the most straightforward clubs to pull of which is why it is an excellent addition to every player’s golf equipment. The wedge is handy when the ball goes to the edge of the greens or lands on a light rough. It also comes in handy when you have sitting on the edge of a fringe or backup against a lie of a rough.

Keep Your Hands Low

Limiting the height of the followthrough will effectively reduce the height of your shots. The lower the hands, the lower the ball flight. Moving the ball back in your stance or choosing a stronger club and trying to swing easy are other ways to accomplish the same thing, but they're less reliable and more difficult to execute. Instead, keep your hands low in the finish (compare the two photos at right), and the trajectory of your shots will be lower.

Find The Correct Speed

Even though speed is a crucial factor when powering off the tee, another common mistake that people new in the game of golf make is using too much speed to come at the ball. It would be best if you learned how to control the tempo for short shots for more target line precise hits. If you find it hard to control your tempo, take a deep breath before the swing, ease the grip on your club, and without overthinking, take a swing without rushing the ball for a gentle acceleration.

Even the most skilled golfer has his or her story about how they ended up performing poorly. They score shots that are not similar to the ones they make on any typical play day and feel that the issue is not with them. It is a challenging game, yes, but you do not have to put the blame elsewhere if things do not go your way. The reason for the poor performance, of course, could be due to your golfing partner not playing your style, the clubs being wrong for the shot, the golf course being too tricky, the roughs and many more. The list is endless, but blaming external forces for your misfortunes will not help. Try fixing the issues to avoid going through the same experience again.

Start With A Par 3-Course

The first most important golf tip if you are a golf beginner is to start on a smaller course than the usual 18-hole golf course. An 18-hole golf course takes a golf player between 4 and 5 hours to play one round of golf. It is tiring covering the yardage of an 18-hole especially if you are playing it without enough swinging skills, which is why it is advisable to start playing on the smaller 9-hole course, or the par 3-course. A smaller course helps you to have a better understanding of the course, the game and management skills required of you by the club.
