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.”

Golf For Beginners – Picking A New Driver

Establish A Budget

Probably the most obvious of my tips listed here but it is important to establish a budget. You have to know what you are prepared to spend before you even go looking for a new driver. I could sit here and tell you various makes and models but if they are not within your price budget then what is the point?

The appearance

Square and triangular headed drivers are quite popular these days in the golfing world. The looks of a driver are not as important, what really matters is how you perform with it. You will be surprised how quickly you stop noticing how the driver looks once you start hitting shots.

The Sound

Sound is something which a lot of people don’t really take into account. If you are a fan of hearing a driver “scream” when it connects then sound might be something which you will take into account. Remember that carbon crowned drivers will always be a little muffled. Always try before you decide to buy.

The Loft

This is a big one which people need to look into more often. The loft of a driver can really help your game. If you do nothing else, choose a driver with the correct loft. Choosing the correct loft will help you drive it straighter and further.

The Shaft

This is just as equally as important as the loft. It is the driving force of the club. If you have an average or below average swing speed then a regular shaft will help you create more power. A stiff shaft is suitable for faster swing speeds.

Always Try Before You Buy

It is all well and good if you pick a driver that you like because it looks good or perhaps it’s your favourite brand in golf, but what you should always do is to try it out and hit some balls. This will help you make up your mind. This is the one thing you should always do when buying anything in golf.

Get Some Advice

It is quite simple if you are someone who doesn’t know much ten ask some advice. Good advice will direct you better towards choosing the correct driver. Ask people you trust and people who know about the game. This might be your local Professional or a friend in the club.
