Check your basic fundamentals.
It is always good advice to regulary check your basic golf
Be sure to stretch before starting your round of
golf and if possible hit some shots. CHECK YOUR GRIP: Grip the club in your fingers. (Not
in the palms.) The meaty pad of your target hand will be placed on top of your golf grip and you need to leave a gap
of at least half an inch at the top of your grip. The grip runs diagonally from the meaty pad of your left hand
to the first joint of your index finger. Left
Hand: you should be able to see 2 knuckles. Right Hand: you should see 1 knuckle. Palms
should be facing each other. The little fingerof your non target
hand is placed on top of the index finger of your target hand. The thumb pad of your non target
hand sits on and covers the thumb of your target hand. Grip pressure is soft not firm or tight.
STANCE: Shoulder width apart. Slightly wider for longer
by standing tall, then bend forward from your hips. (Stick your rear out.)
Bend knees slightly.
Right arm should be relaxed and your left arm will be straight.
POSITION: Short Irons (Sand Wedge up to 6-iron): Place ball in the middle of your stance. Long
Irons/ Fairway Woods: Place ball slightly forward in your stance. (About 1 golf ball towards the left foot from the short
iron position) Driver: Place ball off the inside of the left heel.
ALIGNMENT: Clubhead/ clubface should
be pointing at your target. Feet, knees hips and shoulders should point slightly left
of the target. (Parallel to ball to target line) A common mistake that many golfers make is that they aim
their feet at the target which then aims their club face way right of target.
Take your address position
then ask your playing partner to place one club directly behind the ball and another club across the toe line
of both you feet. Now walk out of the address position and go behind the two clubs and check that your allignment is
correct. If I were you I would check this often whether at the driving range or on the golf course.
SOME TIPS FOR PLAYING GOLF FROM UNEVEN
LIES. Side hill Lie with ball above feet: Play the ball in the centre of your stance. Grip down on
the club. Stand up a little taller. The ball
will tend to go left so aim slightly right of target.
Side hill lie with ball below feet: Play the ball
in the centre of your stance. Bend your knees more than normal. Ball will tend to go right so aim slightly left of target. Keep your knees
bent through impact.
Uphill lie: Play ball slightly forward in your stance. Tilt your shoulders with the hill. Use an extra club here as you have added loft to the club by tilting your shoulders.The ball will go higher than normal.
Lie: Play ball slightly back in your stance. Tilt your shoulders with the hill. You may need to use a club less as you have
de-lofted the club by tilting your shoulders which will make the ball go
The ball flight will be lower than normal.
Grip, Aim, Alignment, Stance and Posture. Always check your basic fundamentals.
