The First Golf Lesson For Newbies: Basic Tricks

As a newbie starting out in the world of golf, everything can be a little daunting. From the equipment side of things, to actually trying to hit a golf ball, many quickly fall by the wayside as golf has a massive learning curve.

For this reason, it is advised that as someone starting out in the sport, a few lessons could be the perfect way to ensure that you don’t lose interest too quickly. Not only will they keep you focused, but a good golf teacher will give you plenty of ideas, hints, and tricks to work on.

Here are some of the best we found from our golf teaching friends. Naturally, we assume that you have already hit the ball a couple of times at the driving range and may have played a round or two as well understanding the basics of setup, grip, swing etc.

Your set up position is very important

As the ball does not move in golf (well not until you hit it), it is imperative that your setup position is perfect, including your grip. Together with your golf teacher, make sure your setup position is correct. This is the foundation that helps to put all the pieces of the golfing puzzle in place.

Your swing is the next link in the chain

If you are happy with your set up, the next important thing is your swing. Everybody has a different swing, and you have to find what works for you. Remember, it should be easy to control, but more importantly, consistent. Start with your backswing and work from there. You should always start your downswing with your hips. Your golf teacher will be able to give you a range of important checkpoints for each part of your swing. This you can work on in the comfort of your home, in a full-length mirror if possible.

Tricks for out on the course

When you are out on the course, remember these mini tricks to keep improving.

  • Aim correctly
  • Make sure you are aiming correctly and have everything in alignment in this regard – so not just your feet, but your knees, hips, shoulders, and perhaps most importantly, the club face.

  • Use loft to your advantage
  • Short, lofted clubs are a great way to ensure that you have better posture when setting up. They also leads to cleaner ball striking.

  • Leave your driver out of it
  • Now this is a trick that might sound a little strange. Don’t use your driver for the first 12 to 18 months you play golf. Work on all the other clubs and use a low iron off the tees. Make sure your swing mechanics are in place and that the use of all your other clubs is strong before even considering using your drive.

These tricks are really going to help you golf game. Just remember to have patience when starting out!
