For our next few blogs, I am sharing a series of 30 tips that will help you simplify your knowledge of golf and hopefully modernize your game. I found these tips in an vendible published by Luke Kerr-Dineen for a GOLF franchise tabbed “Play Smart”. I have only distilled nuggets of knowledge from his vendible to provide you with a quick reference to sharpen your games.
1/ Stave Doubles Bogeys: I love this line “The difference between the lowest handicap golfers and the rest of us isn’t the quantity of good shots. It’s what happens without the bad ones.” We all have bad shots in every round, but you need to stave a succession of poor shots. Clear your smart-ass and get when in the game with a unconfined recovery shot to stave a double or triple bogey.
In a recent study by Sherman (The Four Foundations of Golf) golfers with a handicap of 2, stereotype 1 double bogey/round and 2 birdies/round. Golfers with a handicap of 20 stereotype 5.5 double bogeys and only .2 birdies/round. So, focus on unconfined recovery shots and not on trying to birdie every hole.
2/ Stretch to Modernize Your Speed: We are all enlightened that you need to vivify your muscles surpassing any sport. To generate increasingly power in your golf swing you need to load up your muscles or whorl them up like a spring surpassing you release that power. One of GOLF Top 100 Teachers, Chris Como, says: “Stretching your stovepipe wide yonder from you on the backswing sets up a ‘rubber-band effect’ in your muscles, which allows them to contract forcefully and send the club whipping through impact with uneaten speed.” If you goof to finger this stretch, you’re leaving yards on the table. Without you warm up your soul with soul stretching make sure that you hold your shoulders, stovepipe and wrists in the same wide stretch that you want to unzip in your backswing.
3/ Swing a suburbanite you can handle: Most recreational golfers swing their suburbanite under 90 mph. We are all looking for increasingly loftiness and tenancy off the tee. So Luke recommends waffly to a lighter club with a lighter shaft and club throne to stay in largest wastefulness so that you can swing faster. He suggests trying the XXIO: “The use of lightweight and strong materials creates a unshared wholesomeness and can help you get the most off the tee.”
NOTE: I have tried an XXIO suburbanite and loved the finger and tenancy but moreover know that you can generate a lot increasingly momentum or whipping whoopee when you use a heavier club throne (like a sling-shot). That’s exactly why golf retail outlets sell lead tape which can be widow to the throne of golf clubs. I’m just making this scuttlebutt to suggest that you may want to gradually test the wing of lead tape on your existing clubs surpassing your make any expensive changes.
4/ Aim close, not far: Our vision are designed to squint straight superiority and level. Looking at a target in the loftiness while standing in your write posture tilts your vision and can often make you finger like you’re aiming too far left. It’s tabbed the “Parallax Effect”. A study that found golfers hit the wittiness straighter and farther when they use a spot well-nigh two feet in front of the wittiness and directly in line with their intended destination. Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus have used this method and you should too. So, aim close, not far.
