What golf tips should you look for?

Often beginners and high handicappers set out to find video and written golf tips that will make them improve their golf game. However, often, they do not know what tips they should be seeking. So, this article is meant to give an overview of the different types of golf instruction that is available so that you can ask the right questions.

The major categories for golf tips are the golf swing, golf shots, mental strategy and situational strategy, apparel and equipment, golf fitness, and rules and etiquette. To truly learn to play golf well and love the game you need to become proficient in all of these areas. Let’s take them one at a time.

GOLF SWING TIPS: To learn the basic fundamentals to the golf swing you will want to get tips on the full swing and short game. The full swing is divided up into the following segments: the grip; stance; backswing; downswing; impact position and follow through. The short game swing is divided up similarly, but the technique used varies with whether you are putting, chipping, pitching, hitting a bunker shot and/or coming out of rough or a tie lie. Finally, golf swing tips are also specific to the type of club you are using (i.e. driver, iron, wedge, wood, hybrid and putter).

Golf swing tips are also separated into fixes or cures for specific swing faults. Common swing faults addressed are over the top, slicing, hooking, reverse pivoting, topping, hitting fat behind the ball, popping the ball into the air and losing your balance.

So, for you beginners and high handicappers, when looking up golf swing tips use these specific terms to better find the answer that you are looking for. For example, you might search for the “proper grip and stance when hitting a full swing iron shot.”
