PGA Golf Tips to Take Your Game to a New Level
PGA Golf Instruction Tips
You can receive a lot of helpful advice from PGA golf instruction either online or by hiring a qualified instructor in your area. The tips you learn go far beyond the basics you probably are already aware of such as keeping a neutral grip, lining up to the ball and keeping your head still. You can find basic advice anywhere, PGA golf instruction is what you turn to when you want to take your game to a whole new level.
Drive Straighter and Farther
One of the main components to hitting your ball farther and straighter is getting a good solid turn in your shoulders. To focus on just your upper body, lay a towel on the ground in the same place you would traditionally stand.
Get on your knees and address the ball. Not turning enough or too much will dig up the grass or you’ll hit the top of your ball so it only travels a short distance.
When you turn your shoulders the right amount, your ball will fly every single time.
Fixing Your Slice
PGA golf instruction will teach you that you can fix your slice if you make the effort to swing your club on a path that is inside-to-out all the way through impact. In order to do this, your shoulders really need to turn away from the ball on your backswing.
Proper Tee Height
Could the height of your tee be affecting your drive? According to instruction given by PGA professionals, it can! Ideally, half of the ball will be above the club head on impact. If your tee is too high, your ball is likely going to travel high into the air with little distance and a ball placed too low will travel low into the ground. A perfect balance means more distance and accuracy.
Choosing the Right Instruction
While golf tips are always helpful, sometimes you just need in-person golf instruction. So, how do you know who to hire? Well, you should put as much thought into hiring your instructor as you would a doctor, dentist, builder or roofer.
• Accreditation and Experience – There are a lot of individuals who claim to be professionals, make them prove it. An instructor who has really earned their status will have nothing to hide and will be more than thrilled to show you their credentials.
• Compatibility – You need to feel immediately comfortable with your instructor. If they make you nervous or uneasy, you’ll be too distracted or focused on them to really address your game.
• Playing Ability – A great golfer is not necessarily a good instructor and some of the best instructors can’t break 90. They don’t have to necessarily excel on the course but they do have to be able to demonstrate the technique that they are teaching flawlessly.
• References – Don’t be afraid to ask for a few references and take the time to contact them. Find out how the person enjoyed working with the instructor, how much their game improved and why they would recommend them.
Whether you need a lot of help with your game or if there’s just a few areas that could use addressing, PGA golf instruction takes your game to a more desirable, boast-worthy level.
PGA Golf question by Dustin W: I know the chances of playing PGA tour golf is slim but like any other sport it can be expensive?
I love to play golf but I don’t know if playing golf as a pro is realistic. I hear that I will have to play golf for a couple of hours every night to become a pro. A pro will have to hit par on any course and even under if they wish to compete with others. What are some other basics that you feel I might need to know to play to the game competively and still try to enjoy the game as I did as a kid?
PGA Golf best answer:
Answer by toughnottobeacynic
I read your response to another person that asked the same question and judging by that response you don’t have the commitment and drive it would take to be a professional golfer. It’s more than playing golf a couple hours a night and it won’t be the game you loved as a kid. You’re very young, just 17. I think you’ll find something else more suited to your personality and desires. You’ve asked a lot of questions about martial arts. Perhaps you would be better suited to a career in that.
