If you have limited time in which to practice, it’s best to focus on improving your short game. Concentrate on your putting and chipping abilities. Practicing skills like this consistently garners you great results. If you enough time, practice with wedges, move on to 7 irons, and finish your practice with shorter wedge shots.
Perhaps one of the most important things to understand in the game of golf is that when the club strikes the ball, the club’s face must be perfectly square for maximum distance and accuracy. Doing so will allow the ball to travel along a straighter path. If the face of the club is not square to the ball, then you risk slicing unintentionally. Ideally, you should hit the golf ball at a perfect right angle. Manipulate the club a few times until you discover the best position to achieve this.
Check the club head – before you buy a used golf club! An overused club will have a shiny spot on the head. This worn spot is not good for your shot, as the head of the club does not connect with the ball correctly. During a putt, position your left hand so that it’s in front of the ball when you address it. Keep this position while you swing. Doing this will give you a strong grip on the club, and will keep your ball from bouncing off the club’s face as the two connect.
