Be Aggressive In The Rain

None of us can control the weather, so there will be times when you find yourself playing in the rain—whether your grinding it out in a tournament or playing in a grudge match with your buddies. You can gain a big edge over others when it rains, if you keep a few things in mind, such as be aggressive with your short game.

Below are five golf tips on playing in the rain:

* Be prepared for rain

* Keep your grips dry

* Have extra gloves in your bag

* Keep your balance

* Be aggressive in the rain

Always carry rain gear. A rain suit, a clean towel, and a pair of rain gloves help keep you and your equipment dry. If you can’t find rain gloves, store extra regular gloves and a pair of cotton gloves in your bag. The cotton gloves enhance your grip when needed. In addition, wipe your grip with a towel before hitting.

Once it starts raining, keep your equipment and yourself as dry as you can. Cover your clubs when not in use. Change your spikes periodically between rounds to prevent slipping. You don’t want to lose your balance. And use your umbrella to shield you from the rain when putting or while waiting to hit.

When pitching and chipping, be aggressive in the rain. Wet grass inhibits roll, so forget the bump and run. Instead, pitch and chip all the way to the hole. Putts run more slowly and break less in the rain, so make sure you get the ball all the way to the hole. If it starts lightning out, get off the course. Keep these golf tips in mind when it rains and you’ll have a big edge on your opponents.

Short Game – Chipping Golf Instruction

I believe that the setup is the key to hitting a great chip shot. Of course, you need the backswing and the downswing, but if you’re not standing to it properly, hitting the golf ball with the correct impact is going to be a very difficult thing to do.

I’m going to give you some chipping golf instruction. The next time you’re out playing, check your ball position. Critical, the very first thing, make sure that the golf ball is in the middle of your stance, not off your left foot, not off your front foot, and not off your back foot, but in the middle.

The next part of the chipping golf instruction is to make sure you put your weight on your left leg, not in the middle, not on your right leg, but on your left leg. And when you do that, take the butt end of the club, and push it over to your belt buckle.

So, you see the angle you have? This enables the golf club to swing up and down so you’ll make solid contact with the golf ball.

And then, this will enable the golf club to go up so it comes back down and makes solid contact with the golf ball.

Try that the next time you go to the golf course.

golf swing tipsSo you want to know more about the golf swing? Most people will probably frustrated about the golf swing parts in the world of golf game.

Many people are endlessly changing their golf swing to gain more distance or to proper problems like a slice or a hook. Actually the golf swing is just mechanics issue and putting body motions together on the right way so you can be consistent.

But for many experienced golfer they know this issue is very easy to said rather than done. Let’s see what actually the basic of golf swing is:

  1. Your stance should be about shoulder width apart and your feet should be pointing slightly out – but not too much!
  2. Let your arms hang naturally down from your body and place the club behind the ball. If your shoulders hunch or you have tension in your arms, you are probably too close to the ball. Stand back a little bit.
  3. Place about 70 percent of your body weight on your back leg.
  4. Straighten your spine and have a bit of bend in your knees.
  5. Keep your eye on the ball during your entire swing
  6. Grip the club as if you are holding a small, delicate bird. You want to keep the bird in your hands, but you don’t want to crush it either. That’s how you should hold your club.
  7. A good golf swing will be a fluid, easy motion with your shoulders turning slightly in the backswing and your follow-through complete.
  8. Make sure you keep your feet planted and slow down in your backswing. Most problems with a golf swing are cause by swinging too quickly in the back swing and then not accelerating through the ball.
  9. You will want to hit the ball in the “sweet spot” or the center of the club. Hitting it anyplace else will cause your ball to travel in directions that you really don’t want it to go in.
  10. Then grip it and rip it!

Six Keys To Knocking Down The Flag

Hitting great approach shots is a good way to lower your golf handicap. Short of dramatically improving your putting, hitting great approach shots is probably the fastest way of cutting strokes from your handicap. In fact, some expert’s think hitting more greens hit in regulation is the fastest way to improve your game. Whether that’s true or not, we’ll leave for others to decide.

But one thing is for sure: you can’t hurt yourself by hitting great approach shots close enough for a one-putt, or at worst, a two-putt. To do this, you must hit crisp, clean irons. Some golfers improve their approach shots by hitting shot after shot at the range, studying golf tips in newsletters, and/or taking golf lessons from their local pros. Others do it by building critical keys into their swings at six key points.

Below are six critical swing keys you need in a good iron swing

1. Feel loose at address.

You never want to feel jammed up at address when hitting irons. You also don’t want to feel as if you’re reaching for the ball. You want your arms to hang loose and perpendicular to the ground. Also, bend from the hips and straighten your back. Feel loose at address and you’ll hit crisper irons.

2. Flex your knees for balance.

Flex your knees so your shoulders are in line with your hips and your knees are in line with the balls of your feet. Doing so improves balance. I encourage students attending my golf instruction sessions to practice this setup in the mirror. Also, narrow your stance to stay on top of the ball. You don’t want to use the same stance you use for your woods. If you do, you’ll tilt too much forward.

3. Keep your left wrist flat and slightly bent

During your backswing keep your left wrist (right, for left-handers) flat or just slightly bent. Think of your left arm swinging up and through your right shoulder. That keeps you on plane during your backswing. In practice, spend some time making sure your clubface remains square at the top. When you’re square at the top, you won’t need to get handsy at impact.

4. Create lag in your downswing

You want to create as much lag as possible in your downswing, as I explained in one of my recent golf tips newsletters. You can create lag in the takeaway by stretching both arms as far as you can during your takeaway while making little wrist hinge. This creates the widest possible arc. Then, when you drop your hands to start your downswing, your arc will go from wide to narrow.

Practice Routine Eliminates Bad Chips

Poor chipping hurts your game more than you know. Catching chips fat or thin or hitting them off line can cost you. Poor chipping often stems from poor technique. If you don’t practice chipping as much as you should, you’re technique can slip and you can acquire bad habits.

But improve your technique and you’ll not only become a better chipper, you’ll also save a ton of strokes. Below is a six-step practice routine that improves chipping:

1. Sole your wedge on the ground

2. Raise your wedge on its toe

3. Stand closer to the ball with your feet together

4. Shift weight forward

5. Take club back like your putting

6. Make smooth forward stroke

Chips shots are specialty shots, so if you using your standard setup to chip, you’re making things difficult. Adjust your setup and you’ll eliminate bad chips. Practice the following routine to improve chipping.

1. On the practice green, sole your wedge on the ground. Grab your putter and do the same

2. Raise your wedge up on its toe until the shaft angel matches your putter’s shaft angle. (This removes the need to swing on an arc, minimizing the chance that you’ll hit the ball off line.)

3. Drop your putter and stand close to the ball with your feet together.

4. Shift your weight forward a bit

5. Take the club back like your putting, which is why you made the shaft more vertical

6. Make a smooth forward stroke using the same length and pace as your backswing.

Once you have a good feel for the angle at which you need to place your wedge, stop using your putter. But continue working on this practice routine until you ingrain its other steps. Eventually, it will be come second nature. Bad chipping can cost you strokes.

Don’t let it. Improve your technique by practicing the routine explained above. You’ll not only improve your chipping, you’ll chop a boatload of strokes off your golf handicap.

Hit It Sweet From The Start

If you’re like many golfers, you can’t always get to the range before playing. Your schedule just doesn’t permit it. So you tend to feel stiff at the start of a round. And even when you do make the range, you may still feel tight on the first hole. Nonetheless, you hit a good first drive.

You’re about 170 yards from the hole and in the fairway. Now what? Will you be able to hit an iron to the green? Below is an exercise that will prep you for the iron shot. Here are the six keys to this exercise:

  1. Take your address position
  2. Cock the club head straight up
  3. Take the club back by bending your wrists
  4. Check for wrinkles in your wrist
  5. Go back to address and swing
  6. The exercise warms up your wrist hinge

If you hinge your wrists properly during your takeaway, chances are good you’ll start your swing smoothly. Take your regular address position with your iron of choice. Cock the clubhead straight up and down until the shaft is just short of horizontal.

Take the club back by bending your right wrist and bowing your left until the shaft is parallel left of your target line (right for right-handers). (You should see wrinkles across the back of your right wrist.) Go back to your address position and hit the ball. Try to get your wrists in the same position as you did above. The exercise takes only a few seconds, so you should be able execute it quickly before swinging. You can probably run through it while the other guys are hitting. If it’s done correctly, the exercise improves your rhythm and helps you hit it sweet from the start.

Driver Ball Position – Driver Golf Swing

I often see a number of amateurs prepare for their driver golf swing by walking up, after they have teed the ball up, they just take a step back and they address it. They grip the golf club and they address it, and they sort of just plot their feet down wherever they land, but let me tell you the proper way.

This way you’ll be able to get the ball in the correct position more often than not. After you have the golf ball and you’ve gripped it and you have addressed it, then you’ll just look down, take a peek down, and if this golf ball is running towards the left heel, then this is correct.

If you look down and you see the golf ball is a little too far forward off your left, that’s too far forward and you’ll probably see that the shoulders are aimed too far to the left.

On the other hand, if you look back down and you think the ball is too far back in your stance when you put this shaft along you, you’ll be aiming way off to the right.

So, after you’ve addressed the golf ball, all you have to do to get ready for your driver golf swing is bring the shaft up and lay it along your shoulder line, and it should be going in the direction you want to go with it.

If you get it too far back in your stance at address, you’ll wind up aiming your shoulders too far off to the right.

And if you get it off the left heel, this should be proper for most people.  Give that a try the next time out.
