In golf wanting to improve is almost a given for every golfer. Everyone wants to go up the ladder. Although many people started to play this game as just a hobby, this game can very easily grow with someone. The good thing is, when a person wants to improve golf there are many aspects of the game he can tweak one by one.
One of the most common wants of a golfer is to improve his drive. There is no denying that it is the most common wish of a golfer because it is the skill that is seen up front. Now what do I mean by that? When you go the course your first stop is the tee box. Once in there the first thing you will do is to expose to people your drive. This means that the first impression a fellow golfer would get from you would be based on your drive. We all know that “the first impression last”, so if you’re going to introduce yourself to your business partner, competitor, friend or whoever it better be with the right kind of impression – a positive one. I might have made you upset with that one but that is mostly because you know it is the truth. Don’t fret yet, I’m going to give away some tips today to help you out with your drive, let’s start!
- Use your whole body – the principle on this one is pretty simple and also I would like to mention it’s obvious. Surprisingly a lot of golfers still miss the point and result with them neglecting this basic. The drive is the golf swing which must cover the most distance. That means a golfer needs to exert his effort the most on this shot. Researchers have found that professional golfers are able to release an incredible amount of energy. Not being a professional all the more requires a person to use all of his body parts because it is more likely that he doesn’t treat his body like an athlete does. You need your entire body to get you enough lift to back up your drive.
- Don’t stop – to gain a competitive advantage you have to know how momentum can be at your side. Many golfers, when they execute their swing, they often stop putting in effort halfway through their swing. This does not make sense if you knew how much yardages you’re losing with every shot you do this. Let me give you an example: Runners, even when they’re about to cross the finish line, never stops running. In fact towards the end is when they give their all. They do this because of the knowledge that they lose momentum by not doing so
- Get the aid of a thumb caddy – first let me say that it’s not embarrassing to use a simple gripping device which is what a thumb caddy is. It only accelerates your way towards improvement so it is not done without good reason. This aligns your grip to the club every time you swing. In time your swing would be much closer to perfection and with consistency.
