Golf is more than just a game, it’s a way of life. And with all the knowledge, experience and right preparation, anyone can improve their golf game in a short amount of time and dramatically change their life! That’s why this month’s Golf Swing Tips will focus on helping you improve your game in a short amount of time by using the following 6 key principles.
FOCUS: Stick with 1 thing at a time and keep your eyes on that ONE thing. We spend most of our golf time just doing this and just focusing on that ONE thing. By focusing on just that ONE thing you are able to focus on and practice your weak points much more and less likely to have all your focus diverted to other areas of the game.
CONTROL YOURSELF: Control yourself. This means that when things do start to get away from you and you don’t get things back on track very quickly, have the confidence to manage yourself and get back on track. Every golfer needs to practice the skill of letting things go and just focus on getting it back and keeping focused on that ONE thing.
STILL ENJOY THE GAME: Go and have fun! Golf is an awesome game that’s great for fun and relaxation but it’s also great for developing skill and fitness. It’s not a get out of jail free card. You still need to do the work. Play as many rounds as you can. However, go to play and enjoy your golf rounds. Golf is for everyone and you are not forced to play it.
BALANCE: By practicing ONE thing you are able to master it and develop it to the point of becoming automatic. It’s that ‘easy’ aspect that really gets our attention and keeps us coming back to play. As a golfer you will find that the more you play the more confident you become and the easier the game will become.
That means you will start to take more risks with your golf swing which can be good, but it can also get you in trouble if you don’t know what you’re doing. Practice everything! At the beginning of the year, get into the best shape of your life. We all have goals, and golf is one of them, go and achieve them.
HAVE FUN: Enjoy your time with friends and family and stay in touch with your friends through social media. Play golf so that you have something fun to do when the summer comes.
KNOW YOURSELF: Know what works for you and keep working on the things that don’t. Just because the drills and practice you did this year doesn’t work today doesn’t mean you should discard it or give up. Remember, you have always got to find a way to get better and you can always learn something new.
Don’t wait any longer for your golf game to improve.
