Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Want to learn to play golf and don't where to start? well how about "online" there are so many places you can go for help from starting out to advanced and the best thing is you can save all the tips and advice under one heading on your computer and refer to it over and over again for free.

First thing to do is make sure you are specific about what you want to learn or need help with, this way you will find a few articles or videos that will help you straight away.Now when you search don't limit yourself to just websites of renowned instructors, look for advice from the Pro's by viewing videos on U Tube.

Learning from videos or renowned teachers through online viewing will mean you need to be sure you understand what they are saying to do and more importantly they have easy to follow pictures or sequences, as it will do you no good if you cannot put into practice what they are trying to teach you.

As soon as you find what you are looking for, say it is on "how to grip the club correctly" and they have instructions you can follow. Now use your IPhone or video camera to video your grip as you put your hands on the handle of the club (get a friend to help if necessary) now you can watch your video and see if you are doing it exactly as per the online instructions you have viewed.

The other benefit of this is that over time you can go back and check your progress from your videos against the online instructions you have watched. This is of great benefit if you are working on your swing and you have been at the range regularly working on say your back swing, by taking occasionally video shots you will know exactly if you are progressing on the right path or not.

Online videos and instructional websites are a simple and quick way to understand the basics as well as advanced ways to improve your golf, of courses it is also very important to see your PGA Pro for help. However if you are starting out you can use the internet and learn to play golf online and find out if it is something you want to pursue. If it is you can spend money with the local PGA Pro as time moves on, or if you don't think it's for you, you haven't lost any money.
