The fastest path to developing a solid golf game is practice, play, track your progress, identify your strengths and weaknesses and practice again with focus on ingraining your strengths and developing your weaknesses.
After identifying your golf game improvement areas, develop your golf practice plan and goals. Here are some example golf expert tips for a solid golf practice plan:
1.Begin golf practice session by performing light stretching and warm-up drills.
2.Review the golf lesson fundamentals of your backswing and downswing. Spend about 10 minutes ingraining the key positions of your full swing in slow motion including takeaway, halfway back, top of backswing, downswing transition (i.e., right elbow "in the slot"), impact position, release and finish position. Start slowly, ingrain the proper positions and movements and increase your golf swing speed until you are swinging your club fluidly.
3.Set up a golf shot alignment station with two clubs, with the far club directed toward your target ("target line") and the near club directly parallel to your target line ("body line").
4.To loosen up and establish good tempo, spend 5 minutes and hit a few short chip and pitch shots.
5.Perform a few golf practice drills to practice your full swing mechanics (for example, backswing golf practice drill or release golf practice drill) for 4 shots to help establish the proper golf lesson swing fundamentals.
6.For the next 4 shots, execute your normal golf swing with an emphasis on a fluid swing motion.
7.Very important! Alternate between 4 practice shots (which emphasize proper mechanics) and the fluid swing.
8.For half of your golf lesson practice session, work on your short game including pitching, chipping and putting (and bunker work if possible).
Establishing a consistent golf practice plan and routine will help you to quickly accelerate your golf strengths and understanding of golf improvement areas resulting in lower scores more quickly.
Whenever you get a chance, review the golf swing fundamentals and golf expert tips from your instructor, golf lessons or other golf expert resources until you get a solid feel of how to set up and execute golf shots around the course. After all, properly setting up for your golf shots is half the battle.
