Golf Tip 1 Balance. - Keeping your balance sounds very simple. The key to playing good golf is keeping good balance. Balance is much more than just having the correct stance.

Having optimum balance depends on three things – how you see things, inner ear signals, and the signals that come from your muscles and joints. Sometimes one of these things gets out of order and this causes a balance disorder

When your head position changes, your balance can be thrown off and this is a wonderful reason for you to keep your head still when you are swinging!

Golf Tip 2 Power Into The Golf Ball – In the first place we must remember that it is necessary to maintain the balance or the head will move so that we cannot see the ball clearly. The next is that as the face of the club is to be connected with the ball in a straight line we must endeavor in starting our swing to do nothing which will prevent our bringing the club back to the ball in the same way.If you will take a club in your hand and start your, back swing easily and naturally, directing your attention to observing when your head starts to sway, you will find that it happens at the instant when you stiffen a single muscle. The slightest tendency to stiffen will instantly destroy the balance. It is well worth your while to convince yourself that this is so. It takes a number of years in golf to learn to "shoot from the hips" or waist, so to speak. The vast majority of beginners are up on their toes in applying the power, instead of being well down on the flat of the foot with the weight well grounded.

Golf Tip 3 Addressing The Ball – The feet. The feet have to be just slightly further apart than shoulder width. This distance is far enough apart to maintain a solid base.The knees. As you address the golf ball your knees will have a slight flex in them.. The hips. If you bend at the hips you can maintain the spine angle and sole the club on the ground correctly. Your hips must be parallel to the line of the ball flight at address. The shoulders. If the shoulders are opened up and back at address the spine angle will be in the correct position as long as the chin is up. The spine. If the spine stays long during the backswing, not rigid, you can make a much bigger turn. The chin. Lift your chin up just enough to get your fist under your chin and touch your throat.

Here are some important items you must know about golf. Golf is a beautiful game. The more you play the better you will get especially by taking action on these golf tips for beginners. Remember patience and composure are needed at all times. Concentration is a must. If you are not completely focused on each shot, this game will surely get the best of you.
