Golf Tips for Beginner and High Handicappers

GOLF SHOT TIPS: Hey, all beginners and high handicappers need to know that there are far more shots than just the basic full swing and short game shots. If you are looking to shape your shot there are low, medium, high, straight, fade and draw and over spin and under spin shots. Based on where you ball is sitting, sometimes you need specialty shots for situations like a downhill lie, uphill lie, below you feet lie, above your feet lie, when the ball is in a divot, buried in the sand, in the water, in deep rough or environmental hazard, on hard pan, tie lies, Bermuda grass, etc… I think I got most of them. Then finally there are specialty shots like the stinger and hitting your driver off the deck that you can learn down the line.

Bite off a little at a time. Initially focus on the shots that will help you the most on the courses that you play most often.

MENTAL AND SITUATIONAL STRATEGY: Golf Tips on mental golf strategies and situational strategies are key to playing golf because in many ways golf is like a game of chess. Mental golf strategies teach you how to focus under pressure and avoid negative mental hang-ups like fear, stress and overconfidence. The advice on these topics includes things like mental foods, visualization, self hypnosis, meditation, pre-shot routines and breathing techniques. You can even find ways to affect the mental focus of your competition, within the rules and acceptable etiquette of course.

Situational strategy is also known as golf course management. It includes things like how to play in the wind, into fast or slow greens, at high and low altitudes, in the morning and evenings, playing to the short or long side of the green, how to avoid trouble, reading greens, etc… If you only knew how many golfers could improve their games if they understood golf course management. You are only as good as your weakest link.
