At Trethorne we welcome everyone from seasoned professional’s to those picking up a club for the very first time. There’s nothing we like more than seeing our members improve and improving their game on our golf course one stroke at a time. Golf can be a tricky sport when first starting out so we’ve put together our top golf tips for beginners.
Aiming – Take a dead aim. If your right handed you might be tempted to aim slightly right in the hope the ball will go that way but remember your swing will likely compensate for poor alignment.
Stance – Your stance should be wide, balance, stable and solid. Build your swing from the ground up.
Posture – Tilt towards the ball at your hips, not at your waist. Bending from the waist will cause your back to bend and make it harder to get a good swing.
Grip – It can take time to get your grip feeling comfy and automatic. Practice getting your grip correct as often as possible, even when your not on the course.
Swing – On your upswing get your lead shoulder under your chin and finish facing the target. Your downswing should always start with your hips. If you start with your upper body this will likely result in a fault.
