Increase the power of your shots
As a beginner in golf, the next thing you have to learn after getting the right swing is how to increase the power of your shots. You will never be able to compete against more advanced players if you can only manage to make the ball go several yards. However, you should not believe that golf is only about power, because you would be making great mistake. It is useless to hit the ball powerfully if you cannot control its direction.
Coming back to power, there are not too many clear advices because hitting the ball with power depends on the way you control your body. But you have to remember that everything starts from the swing and if you mastered its technique, it won't be too difficult to obtain power. We know that beginners have a normal tendency of being stiff when trying to hit the ball hard, but this is their greatest mistake. If you don't relax your muscles and let the whole swing be a natural move, you won't be able to make the club hit the ball with enough power. For the best results, you will have to "feel" the shot and become one with the club that hits the ball. And remember, even if you get the whole swing move right, you still have to focus on the moments before the club hits the ball because they really make the difference between a great shot and a lousy one.
- Learn to make a connection between your body and your mind, so that when you hit the ball you become a whole.
- Relax. If your body is to stiff you will never be able to hit the ball in the right way, offer it the needed direction and power.
- Concentration is extremely important in golf. If your mind does not stay focused on what you have to do, you will never have good results in this wonderful sport.
- When it comes to golf, practice is quite the best thing you can do. The more you practice, the better your game will become and you will see that your shots will be more powerful and more accurate.
