Tiger Woods - How I play Tiger Woods - How I Play

Golf My Way - Jack Nicklaus Golf My Way - Jack Nicklaus

Quote Of The Day
Gary Player - “Golf is a puzzle without an answer. I've played the game for 40 years and I still haven't the slightest idea how to play.”

Jack Nicklaus - “Confidence is the most important single factor in this game, and no matter how great your natural talent, there is only one way to obtain and sustain it: work.”

Lee Trevino - “Pressure is playing for ten dollars when you don't have a dime in your pocket."

Tiger Woods - “I'm trying as hard as I can, and sometimes things don't go your way, and that's the way things go.”

Tom Watson - “If you want to increase your success rate, double your failure rate.”

Sam Snead - “Forget your opponents; always play against par.”

Arnold Palmer - “I've always made a total effort, even when the odds seemed entirely against me. I never quit trying; I never felt that I didn't have a chance to win.”

Bobby Jones - “It is nothing new or original to say that golf is played one stroke at a time. But it took me many years to realize it.”

Fred Couples - “When you're prepared, you're more confident. When you have a strategy, you're more comfortable.”

Ben Hogan - "The most important shot in golf is the next one."

Harry Vardon - "For this game you need, above all things, to be in a tranquil frame of mind."

Bernhard Langer - "Be decisive. A wrong decision is generally less disastrous than indecision."

Greg Norman - “Sometimes things work out on the golf course and sometimes they don't. Life will go on. You try to understand what happens, but maybe today I don't want to know. I just screwed up so maybe I should just put it behind me.”

Seve Ballesteros - “I'd like to see the fairways more narrow. Then everyone would have to play from the rough, not just me.”

Old Tom Morris - “For true success, it matters what our goals are. And it matters how we go about attaining them. The means are as important as the ends. How we get there is as important as where we go.”

Walter Hagen - “Make the hard ones look easy and the easy ones look hard.”

Tommy Armour - “Golf is an awkward set of bodily contortions designed to produce a graceful result”

Henry Cotton - "Golf is a matter of confidence. If you think you cannot do it, there is no chance you will."

Byron Nelson - “Every great player has learned the two Cs: how to concentrate and how to maintain composure.”

Bobby Locke - “You drive for show but putt for dough.”

Peter Thomson - “A light, tender, sensitive touch is worth a ton of brawn”

Hale Irwin - “I am still trying to understand this game, ... I am still learning how to play golf. There are a lot of shots I still don't know. I am still trying to learn, and I think that's a good attitude to have.”

Nick Price - “Putting is probably the most important thing in the game. It's that classic argument you always hear, but it's true. You can hit the ball great, but if you can't make anything, it's so deflating. The psychological aspect is huge. Putting is the source of where you really go in a round.”

When someone decides to take up golf they usually head straight for the golf course. The object of the game sounds simple and it looks simple but that’s were all ends. The professionals make it look easy on TV. Any person taking it up think it is just a case of going to their local course and playing like the Professionals. In fact the golf course can be the hardest place for a beginner to learn!

The best place a raw beginner to go is in fact the practice range. When someone goes golfing for the first time it usually does not take long to realise that they do not know how to drive a ball correctly. Practicing at the range will mean less pressure on the beginner you can relax here more as a beginner.

To learn how to drive the ball straight you first have to learn the basics. Even if you are not a beginner learning the basics can be beneficial. It may harm your ego but it will improve your game learning the basics and it is something which you can share with someone of less experience. If you have been struggling with the driver for a long time it may be down to bad habits. A bad habit is a hard thing to eliminate from your game when you have had it in your game for a long period of time. Learning the basics once again would be the best option here if you are to improve your driving. The first thing to check first should always be the stance. If you are not setting up correctly you are giving yourself a hard task right away. To have the ability to drive the ball down the centre of the fairway you have to set up correctly.

If you know you are not setting up correctly, then now is the time to sort this problem out. It is a basic thing you should be doing and if you aren’t then it is most likely the source of your problems. You may be an experienced golfer who doesn’t want to listen this but when you think about it what is ten minutes of your time. Ten minutes of checking your stance could solve all your driving problems. I for one know this; I had to swallow my pride a number of years ago when I was told my stance was all wrong. It seemed my stance was interfering with my swing and my arms weren’t swinging freely which meant I was coming up steeply and attacking the ball steeply which resulted in a huge slice from left to right.

Having someone watch you would be of benefit. A professional’s view would great but it is not something which you have to if you are more experienced. If you are a beginner I would say lessons could be a big benefit but for more experienced players I would suggest you get someone just to watch you swing. If you are serious about driving the ball straight get to the range first and practice your stance. The stance is a big problem for beginners and it will affect your driving big time.

You may have been expecting me to throw loads of tips at you but I am not going too. I will and have already done that elsewhere on my blog. I do not want to fill your head full of too much too soon. This is aimed at beginners remember and I want to ease them into the game slowly and learn them the fundamentals. Setting up correctly with the right stance will give you a better chance of hitting fairways.
