golf ball on tee

Here are a few tips which may help to improve your golf but I make no promises:-

  • To help get your balance right practice by standing on two bricks (one under each foot).

  • To improve the speed of your stroke practice with a bamboo cane instead of a golf club - the cane allows you to hear the speed of your swing.

  • If you place your golf bag close to your side this will help to correct exaggerated hip movement.

  • To help you keep your head down when striking the ball use mixed coloured tees and, as you strike the ball call out the colour of the tee.   This apparently helps concentration - but it could get you strange looks from other players!

  • To help keep you arm straight when practising your swing, cut the ends of a large fizzy drink bottle (leaving a tube) and slip this over your elbow.  You will be unable to bend your elbow.

  • To hold your wrist in the correct position when putting, slip a comb or pen under your watch strap (as long as you wear this on the correct wrist), so it extends past your wrist.  This will act as a sort of splint and prevent any unnecessary movement of the wrist.

  • To practice putting aim at a tee instead of the hole.   As a tee is a much smaller object to hit the hole will be a doddle - so they tell me.

  • If you land in a bunker imagine the ball is the yolk of a fried egg.  When hitting the ball imagine you are trying to lift the egg without breaking the yolk.  Well it's worth a try!

  • To keep golf gloves supple when not in use, place two golf balls inside the glove before putting in your bag.  The movement of the balls will keep the glove supple.

  • If a small child shows interest in golf have one of your old clubs cut down to size and let them use this.
